Here’s the difference between Lightdash and 5X. The comparison is based on pricing, deployment, business model, and other important factors.
Lightdash removes the gap between your data transformation layer and your data visualization layer. It enables data analysts and engineers to control all of their business intelligence (data transformations/business logic as well as data visualization) in a single place. Lightdash integrates with your dbt project and gives a framework for defining metrics and specifying joins between models all within your existing dbt YAML files. The data output from your dbt project is then available for exploring and sharing in Lightdash.
5X is an end to end data platform built on top of the best in class vendors of the modern data stack. 5x lets you work with the best vendors of the modern data stack without worrying about signing different enterprise contracts or stitching them together. Companies using 5x are able to deploy end to end data platforms in minutes not months.
