Zero-maintenance data pipeline

About Fivetran

Fivetran is a zero-maintenance data pipeline which enables businesses of all sizes to collect and analyze business data by connecting their applications and databases to a central data warehouse. Fivetran supports a wide range of data connectors, allowing users to collect data seamlessly from apps such as a Facebook Ad Insights, Shopify, Salesforce, Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Snowplow, and more.

Once data has been collected in the central warehouse, analysts can ask questions and explore company data effectively using a SQL editor, or any other modern business intelligence tools. With access to up-to-date, row-level data, Fivetran enables users to ask just about any question using SQL tools. Users can set up SQL queries or a Business Intelligence (BI) dashboard, to give teams quick and central access to accurate metrics.

Fivetran enables users to own their data, as well as maintain a historical archive. Fivetran supports a full historical sync, archiving changes so that users can even query deleted data. As a zero-maintenance/zero-configuration pipeline, Fivetran gets users up and running in 5 minutes, and enables analysts to query and combine data sources without writing a single line of code. Permission, company policy and compliance management tools, plus SSL encryption help users manage data safely and securely.

    Helpful and Easy tool to use!

    Reviewed on 07/02/2019

    Pros

    Fantastic software easy to use and best of all not expensive. Helps you simplify what usually becomes complicated. Now I manage ETLs without having to write or keep the code.

    Cons

    For the meantime, Five Trans only offers one direction data sync. It would be phenomenal if it would offer a two way directional sync. However for the price, it is a great acquisition.

    Overall, I consider Fivetran to be a leader in the space. I haven't been exposed to competing offerings that come close to the stability and feature richness of Fivetran.

    Pros

    1. Hands-off, low code ELT data operations platform that meets expectations of ultra-small start-ups as well as large established enterprises.
    2. Integrates extremely well with Snowflake and PostgreSQL data warehouse destinations
    3. Provides (experimental at the time of writing ) support for Fishtown Analytics dbt through a completely seamless integration requiring absolutely minimal configuration
    4. Integrates extremely well with PostgreSQL upstream data sources, specifically those hosted on Salesforce, AWS and GCP clouds, where write-ahead logs are not made available by the cloud providers.

    Cons

    1. SDK for development of custom connectors and a choice of execution methodology (e.g. package, deploy and execute on customer-supplied IaaS)

    Alternatives Considered

    Stitch

    Reasons for Choosing Fivetran

    Stitch limitations related to configuration and behavior of specific connectors 1. Limitations of google sheets connector 2. Loss of synchronization of a Heroku PostreSQL connector 3. General - availability of specific connectors in the connector library

    This software has allowed me to manage a vast majority of my major ETL integrations without actually having to write or maintain any code. This has been greatly beneficial for my time as I'm not able to devote more focus on other, more value-added tasks for the company. I'm currently only a team of 1 and the time that Fivetran saves is immeasurable. It just is a high quality product that does exactly what it says it does and does it reliably.

    Pros

    Very easy set up. Troubleshooting is made simple when there are problems. The downtime has been minimal and appears to be getting better as they improve the product. Fivetran is also great value in terms of the service provided and overall cost. When I've had issues, their tech support has been quick to respond and helpful.

    Cons

    Occasional delays do occur and there's sometimes no real good explanation for it. Most of the time I just assume that there is something wrong with the service Fivetran is trying to pull from but there isn't much detail on it/ estimates on when a delayed connection might catch up. Other than that, there's no way to make connections to services that aren't pre-built which is understandable but that should get better over time as Fivetran adds new connectors.

    We use Fivetran for all integration points where connectors are available. Support has been great and billing reasonable.

    Pros

    Fivetran has many out-of-the-box connectors to the most frequently used data sources. This has allowed our business to gain quick access to many of the data sources needed. Their customer support has been outstanding for all issues I've had to troubleshoot. They continually work to develop new connectors and integrations with many. Dashboard is user friendly

    Cons

    Sync times can cause issues with business processes if you need to start at a particular time multiple times a day. Choices are limited for users and sync times consistently change (i.e every hour does not have the ability to start on the hour but at a fivetran determined start time). Package integrations with DBT seem to have multiple issues, although Fivetran does offer office hours with support staff to assist.
    Would be nice to see a price breakdown for monthly MAR in addition to just the # of records.
