Pandas vs Dataform: What are the differences?

Developers describe Pandas as "High-performance, easy-to-use data structures and data analysis tools for the Python programming language". Flexible and powerful data analysis / manipulation library for Python, providing labeled data structures similar to R data.frame objects, statistical functions, and much more. On the other hand, Dataform is detailed as "A framework for managing SQL based data operations". Dataform helps you manage all data processes in your cloud data warehouse. Publish tables, write data tests and automate complex SQL workflows in a few minutes, so you can spend more time on analytics and less time managing infrastructure.

Pandas and Dataform are primarily classified as "Data Science" and "Business Intelligence" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Pandas are:

  • Easy handling of missing data (represented as NaN) in floating point as well as non-floating point data
  • Size mutability: columns can be inserted and deleted from DataFrame and higher dimensional objects
  • Automatic and explicit data alignment: objects can be explicitly aligned to a set of labels, or the user can simply ignore the labels and let Series, DataFrame, etc. automatically align the data for you in computations

On the other hand, Dataform provides the following key features:

  • Version ontrol
  • Scheduling
  • Notifications and logging

Pandas and Dataform are both open source tools. It seems that Pandas with 22.4K GitHub stars and 8.92K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Dataform with 117 GitHub stars and 11 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Dataform and Pandas?
    dbt
    dbt is a transformation workflow that lets teams deploy analytics code following software engineering best practices like modularity, portability, CI/CD, and documentation. Now anyone who knows SQL can build production-grade data pipelines.
    Slick
    It is a modern database query and access library for Scala. It allows you to work with stored data almost as if you were using Scala collections while at the same time giving you full control over when a database access happens and which data is transferred.
    NumPy
    Besides its obvious scientific uses, NumPy can also be used as an efficient multi-dimensional container of generic data. Arbitrary data-types can be defined. This allows NumPy to seamlessly and speedily integrate with a wide variety of databases.
    Tableau
    Tableau can help anyone see and understand their data. Connect to almost any database, drag and drop to create visualizations, and share with a click.
    Metabase
    It is an easy way to generate charts and dashboards, ask simple ad hoc queries without using SQL, and see detailed information about rows in your Database. You can set it up in under 5 minutes, and then give yourself and others a place to ask simple questions and understand the data your application is generating.
