Fivetran Feature Reviews

Forget about ETLs!

2018-05-23

High-frequency ETL's to our data warehouse with an extremely simple setup and great support team.

Pros

Ease of use and high quality of the data source connectors.

Cons

It would be great to have more detailed logging, when there is an issue it is some times hard to diagnose the cause without contacting support. Likewise, it would be great to be able to configure the query batch size (which by default is 10M rows), or to automatically adjust that based on the table size (GiB and row count), because right now if you have a table with ~10M rows but very large size, it can stall the historical sync process or require extremely large statement timeout settings.

Wilson C.

Fivetran's service is efficient and extremely satisfactory

2017-11-01

Efficiency on creating data streams from all our 3rd party programs, this helps us retrieve our data much quicker and be able to spend less engineering time.

Pros

Instead of having to require an engineer to build the connection, we are able to leverage fivetran for our data streaming needs.

Cons

I think generally the only con I would mention is that there are some features that could be improved such as improving visibility into what is happening after we do an integration such as logs of files uploaded, exact upload to column name references and allowing a little more flexibility on some of the newer integrations.

Plug n Play integration with any app

2017-12-14

Pros

Plethora of ready made app connector available Option to import excel data.

Cons

Currently, Fivetran offers only one direction data sync. Having both directional sync would be awesome.

2020-07-15

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.

Fivetran is easy to use

2020-07-21

I have used the Free trail with limitations

Pros

As a non database person running SQL scripts in fivetran was easy for integration and reports

Cons

The only issue was that the product cost money and is not Free. Price is reasonable though.

Helpful and Easy tool to use!

2019-02-07

Pros

Fantastic software easy to use and best of all not expensive.

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.

Andrew G.

Easy to set up and even easier to manage multiple integrations across multiple systems.

2017-11-01

This software has allowed me to manage a vast majority of my major ETL integrations without actually having to write or maintain any code.

Pros

Very easy set up. Troubleshooting is made simple when there are problems.

Cons

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.

Fivetran's integrations have enabled us to access our data very cheaply and very easily.

2017-10-31

Pros

Fivetran's software is easy to use, is very cheap and simplifies what would usually be difficult and time-consuming processes.

Cons

Perhaps they could have more integrations with other common cloud-based software, but I know these are on the way.

Great, but overly expensive product

2021-07-13

Their support is fantastic, sales reps are great - all good experiences, but way too expensive compared to alternatives.

Pros

Fivetran is incredibly easy to set up and likely has the best no-code ETL there is

Cons

It's incredibly expensive for what they offer and they are inflexible with contracts and credit purchasing
