Actian DataConnect

If your company houses a lot of data locally and needs to free up space, the Actian DataConnect Hybrid Cloud Data Warehouse is an excellent solution for the price. It also allows for complex queries and even some basic data analytics, like Market Basket Analysis. Their free trial period is extremely convenient and you may discover more uses for it than you originally think.

Stitch is very cheap and useful for small to medium size companies to ingest data from common apis/platforms in a quick and cheap way.

Pros

Actian DataConnect

  • The large connector base for DataConnect is outstanding. However even when they do not have a custom connector, they have a web services Invoker which allows you to connect to any web services.
  • The underlying scripting language is Visual Basic-ish. Very easy to start.
  • The product has been around a long time, through multiple company acquistions, and still is a competitive player via pricing.
  • Support team is awesome.
  • Large user community.

  • Not as expensive as fivetran

Cons

Actian DataConnect

  • Sometimes the screen does not load- since it is a web based software, this can be seen as a reliability issue.
  • "Maps" can become somewhat complex, and between multiple developers this can be painful when sharing or explaining others' work.
  • The concept of macros adds flexibility in how to solve problems, but is a separate language and can take time to learn and master.

Stitch, from Talend

  • Stitch is not good at replicating document stores like MongoDB to relational databases. To be fair, this is a difficult task. Stitch flattens the objects, but the result is unwieldy.
  • Stitch cannot replicate the same source to multiple sinks, which is inconvenient if you want to replicate some of a datastore's tables to Redshift and others to Redshift Spectrum, for instance.

Actian DataConnect is a great product for data storage, processing, and complex querying. It also has the added benefits of basic data analytics and data mining. We were surprised at how easy it was to perform Market Basket Analysis. I would highly recommend this system to a large business and encourage you to start a free trial period.

I have had some troubles with one integration. It could be solved by doing a full re-sync which is not free. Every time I had to do it, I just sent them an email to tell them that I would do it and they did not charge for it.

Alternatives Considered

Actian DataConnect

As I stated earlier, DataConnect makes a head-to-head run against the others. It has advantages and disadvantages compared to the competitors. The choice really comes down to pricing and specific requirement needs for the project you are planning. Questions such as On-premise or Cloud, Security, and Specific Connectors available will drive your decision.

Stitch is much cheaper and probably simpler than tools like Fivetran. Stitch is for simpler projects and used alongside traditional ETL and writing ones own code into APIs.Fivetran is more of a overarching tool but also more expensive

Return on Investment

Actian DataConnect

  • This tool was chosen prior to my arrival and was used to build three integrations. We have decided to switch to SSIS since we have licenses for it and it is a more common tool for ETL integrations.
  • It has been difficult to network with individuals that have experience with this tool.
  • Having been a part of a software package purchased, we have chosen to use a different tool for future integrations and plan to rewrite existing integrations.

  • Freed up data engineers to work on transformations
  • Bought us some time to migrate from our ETL tool
