Additionally, the SQL importer allows you to directly import tabular data from a SQL database.

Additional tips

We recommend importing data such that each column corresponds to an input/output variable (with column headers as the names of the parameters) and each row corresponds to an observation.

Even if the data is in a file type accepted by the platform, it will still have to follow the right structure. See here for more information on tabular structure, and here to download an example of a recommend tabular dataset structure. Once your data is imported, Monolith has many tools for data cleaning and wrangling.

If you are working with another type of file, there is still an option to create a customised loader. To know more, please contact our support team.
