SSOT data is necessary in order to have confidence in our metrics, have repeatable and replicable reporting, and for our data team to work more efficiently. We have created a GitLab repo to house our SSOT SQL queries for both our foundational base queries and for ad hoc analyses.
This allows us to keep a record of queries used for foundational projects like our dashboards and for one off analyses that may need to be repeated, tweaked, or modified in the future. Dashboard queries are also housed in Sisense as snippets in order for the data team to work more efficiently within the BI tool. We are currently updating these queries to work within Tableau as well.
The current workflow for creating or updating snippets and SSOT queries is the following:
