CDC is a broad term that applies to any of several methods of detecting only the data that changed for loading to avoid row collisions, maintain history and make ELT/ETL more efficient

Some drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle.

CDC is change data capture. It is essential in DWH/BI project to see changed data.Different techniques are available like change in timestamps, versioning of rows, indicators, or both timestamps and indicators, messages and queues,logs, events.



Imagine a case when  when you pull or push huge source data that have been processed before into downstream edw or applications not neccesary by business.It simply eats up time and effort(example). So keep track only data that is changed and proceed further.


There are many CDC tools available in  the market.

create volatile table delta 
when a.custnum is null then 'D'
when b.custnum is null then 'I'
when (a.custname=b.custname and a.dob=b.dob and 
a.gender=b.gender and a.mstatus=b.mstatus and a.addr=b.addr and ) 
then 'N'
else 'U'  end as indic,
coalesce (a.custnum,b.custnum) custnum,
coalesce (a.custname,b.custname) custname,
coalesce (a.dob,b.dob) dob,
coalesce (a.gender,b.gender) gender,
coalesce (a.mstatus,b.mstatus) mstatus,
coalesce (a.addr,b.addr) addr,
coalesce (, contact
new_cust a
full outer join 
old_cust b
) with data
on commit preserve rows;

Please see the refernce code above where new_cust is new data, old_cust is yesterday data full outer joined based on cust_num and deriving the chane indicator (i - new record to insert, D - logical delete , U - update the changed details, N - no change)

Very nice piece of code shared by sgarlapa.
