See why GigaOm rates Fivetran highly for automated data integration.
With a proliferation of tools generating more and more available data, it’s becoming increasingly important to automate your data pipeline. In a recent report comparing automated data integration vendors Fivetran, Matillion and Stitch, GigaOm put it this way:
Without more automation, an organization’s data movement needs can quickly outpace a data engineering staff’s ability to meet that growing need.
The GigaOm report is based on a field test covering a first-time user setup for a common data pipeline use case. GigaOm went through real setups with their own accounts for Fivetran, Matillion and Stitch. Many common replication workflows, such as automatic schema migration for databases and supportability for cloud data warehouses like BigQuery and Redshift, apply here.
