Data Copilot

We're thrilled to announce a major update that aims to revolutionize the process of building models and pipelines. With our latest release, creating a new Model from scratch has never been easier—all you need are simple English prompts. But that's not all! Our Data Copilot can also predict granular expressions, making it simpler to write any transformations in your Gems. Please refer to below video for quick intro. More detailed documentation to follow.


With this Release, Prophecy is empowering you to build generative AI applications directly on top of your enterprise private data. With this exciting feature, you can create pipelines that seamlessly ingest data from various sources such as Slack, Asana, Documentation, and web scraping. The information is then vectorized and fed into a vector database. Utilizing these vectors, you can do many thing like develop dynamic and interactive live chatbot applications by effortlessly streaming messages through Kafka.

Here is a quick video demonstrating the same.

Here are two example templates that serve as valuable references as you embark on your generative AI application journey.

These templates leverage the power of our toolbox built on top of Apache Spark, providing you with robust data infrastructure to kickstart your development process. With Prophecy and its toolbox, you can confidently build and scale data-driven solutions for generative AI applications.

Data Explorer For SQL

The Data Explorer feature empowers users to explore and analyze their data samples directly within the user interface (UI). With this feature, users can gain insights, verify data accuracy, and make informed decisions by leveraging the filter/sort/download capabilities directly in UI. Please refer here for detailed documentation.

DLT Jobs Support

Delta Live Tables (DLT)( is a powerful feature that empowers you to effortlessly build and manage reliable batch and streaming data Pipelines on the Databricks Lakehouse Platform. We are excited to announce that Prophecy now supports scheduling DLT Pipelines through Prophecy Jobs. Stay tuned for detailed feature documentation, coming soon.

Minor Improvements

In addition to resolving minor issues in our Low-Code-Spark and Low-Code-SQL features, we have introduced below enhancements and fixes.

PingID and AAD

Enhanced user authentication experience by adding PingID support for seamless integration with Azure Active Directory (AAD), ensuring secure and streamlined access to your applications.

Config Package Name support in Pipelines

Introduced a new parameter in Pipeline Settings called "Config Package Name," allowing users to specify a folder where config files will be generated. This enhancement addresses potential conflicts when running multiple Pipelines with identical config names in the same cluster by organizing the config files under designated folders.

Other Minor Improvements

  • We have improved the user experience by relocating the options to edit configuration names, delete, and edit as JSON under the "..." menu. Additionally, we have introduced the functionality to duplicate Pipeline configurations.
  • Along with fixing minor issues in CSV, Fixed format and Flatten schema Gems, we have added two new Gems on our Spark IDE: Compare Columns and Hashing. More Detailed documentation to follow on these Gems. (June 02, 2023)
