I’d like to start a discussion about how Dataflows could be useful without purchasing Premium Capacity.
I have attempted to use Dataflows a few times, but I always run into limitations that require Premium. These paywalls are difficult to work around because any query that requires in-memory compute (“Computed Entity”) is not allowed.
I’m not sure I fully understand the use cases of Dataflows, because most of what I’ve attempted requires some transformations that I’m not allowed. They are a tool I haven’t used properly, so I would be interested to know how others have found value.
Weigh in if you are using Dataflows; what types of data sources do you use them for? What transforms are you using? How have you avoided the dreaded “Computed Entities”?
