Apify
It is common practice for developers to search for REST endpoints on other websites in order to retrieve data from other websites in a structured format such as JSON. However, not all websites have built distinct REST APIs; in this situation, Apify is quite beneficial. The majority of the time, the data that an organization collects is what is considered to be of the utmost importance. In comparison to the other systems that are currently accessible, Apify makes it simple to supply clean data.

Fivetran's business model justifies the use-case where we require data from a single source basically a lot of data but if the requirement is not on the heavier side, Fivetran comes to costly operation when compared to its peers. Otherwise, I'll recommend Fivetran for stability and update and seamless service provider.

It runs pretty well and gets our data from point A to point cluster quickly enough. Honestly, it's not something I think about unless it breaks and that's pretty rare.

Although the purposes and aims of all three products vary widely, I have found Apify to be the most effective option for web scraping for academic purposes. As someone with only a few months' worths of experience with web scraping, I have found Apify's detailed blog posts and very friendly customer support invaluable in my research.

We never seriously considered using anything else. Our data engineers had used Fivetran extensively in previous roles so when it came time to make a decision, there wasn't much of a process. They gladly signed the contract with Fivetran pretty quickly.
