Press Release: Fivetran Named Launch Partner for Google BigQuery Data Transfer Service
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 10, 2019 – Automated data pipeline provider Fivetran today announced it is a launch partner for Data Transfer Service, a new offering from Google Cloud that enables BigQuery customers to use Fivetran data connectors without leaving the Google Cloud environment. The automated setup and product integration between Google Cloud and Fivetran will allow BigQuery users to minimize their time to value and accelerate analytics projects by reducing the setup and maintenance overhead traditionally incurred when centralizing disparate data sources. This partnership builds on an ethos of Fivetran — that cloud-first, fully managed data services should not only be robust and powerful but also easy to use.
“Every company should have access to all their data, in one place, in real time, and Data Transfer Service is the realization of that vision,” said George Fraser, Fivetran CEO and co-founder. “The era of every company building fragile, error-prone custom ETL pipelines is over. Data Transfer Service gives you the power of BigQuery with the self-driving data infrastructure of Fivetran under the hood, so accessing your business data is as easy as writing a query.”
Fivetran is among the first external partners of Google's Data Transfer Service (DTS) for BigQuery. Currently, Fivetran and Google Cloud offer connectors for over 100 sources — including Salesforce, Marketo, NetSuite and more — and the list will continue to expand as Fivetran develops new data connectors.
Once customers use DTS to replicate data from siloed sources into BigQuery, they can take advantage of the many analytics and data science tools from external BigQuery partners like Looker and Tableau, as well as Google Cloud products like Data Studio, BigQueryML and Cloud AutoML. By simplifying the process of getting data to customers, Fivetran is helping analytics teams focus on driving insights rather than managing ETL.
BigQuery customers can use the Fivetran service for free during a 14-day trial period. To get started, navigate to the Google Cloud Platform Marketplace, search for Fivetran to see a list of data sources, select a source, and click Enroll. Then follow the on-screen instructions — it only takes a few minutes.
