By using the dbt Cloud integration, you can create and run dbt transformations immediately following syncs in Airbyte Cloud. This allows you to transform raw data into a format that is suitable for analysis and reporting, including cleaning and enriching the data.


Transforming data may cause an increase in your destination's compute cost. This cost will vary depending on the amount of data that is transformed and is not related to Airbyte credit usage.
