Sidra 2024.01 Release Highlights

What's new in Sidra 2024.01

Enhanced Data Quality Service

Since its launch, the Data Quality Service in Sidra has undergone significant evolution! Now available are enhanced UI features in Sidra Web and comprehensive documentation, complete with test cases, to facilitate Expectations configuration.

Discover more about configuring validations and implement your own rules for the Data Quality Service.

PII Detection Sidra 2.0

With this release, we are excited to introduce a fully functional PII Detection feature for Sidra 2.0. This advanced capability ensures the identification and secure handling of Personally Identifiable Information, enhancing data protection and compliance within our system.

See documentation of PII Detection in Sidra.

Integrated local packages in Databricks cluster

To overcome geolocation-based connectivity issues that hinder package downloads in Databricks clusters, Sidra Service will now preload necessary packages directly to the Databricks File System. This approach bypasses the need to access third-party locations from customer environments and optimizes cluster initialization time.
