Fivetran overview

What is 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.

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.

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.

So far we have loved having this service to help us move our data to our warehouse.

Pros
Fivetran is an amazing tool for data warehousing and is really straight forward to setup. We were able to get it implemented in just a few hours of work.

Cons
This is not the cheapest product out there but it is the most featured rich of ETL services out there.
