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 great for small organizations who want their data and business intelligence organizations to focus on building competitive advantages instead of building data pipelines. AWS DMS offers continuous replication and greater flexibility, if you have the engineering resources to configure it. Stitch may be too inflexible for large organizations with a variety of needs.

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.

  • Stitch does one thing and does it well: turn the data ingestion from third-party APIs into a one-click task
  • It makes all that data into a proper schema as a bonus

Cons

Actian DataConnect

  • Pace of implementation
  • Individualized training

  • 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 less flexible than AWS DMS, but it is fully-managed.

  • It has enabled the company to get new insights by joining together datasets that were previously stored in different places.
  • It has saved weeks of work that were used to do more profitable activities than building intregations.
  • It has allowed us to import in the company's data warehouse all the conversations that the customer service agents have had with the customers in case of a potential argument.
