Skypoint Lakehouse:

  • External table creation in Lakehouse with the user-defined name – The user-defined name for the external table created via external sources like DBeaver using Lakehosue SQL is used in Lakehouse > Databases > Bronze layer. All downstream processes like Map, Match, Merge, Timelines, Metrics, Audience, Enrichment, and Predict work with externally created tables.
  • Total records count for externally ingested tables - The total records count attribute is populated for tables created through external tools using the Lakehouse SQL endpoint.

Skypoint Master Data:

Skypoint Predict:

  • Added RFM model view page - Users can view the RFM (recency, frequency, and monetary) page to get insights from the RFM model.

  • Custom filter for the Sentiment analysis model – Users can add any attributes during the sentiment model setup to be applied as a filter on the view page. On a successful run, the user can filter the results based on the filter values.
