    Datameer

    Without the need for technical subject matter expertise or in-depth technical knowledge, Datameer has enabled me to swiftly convert data and develop insights utilizing data from a variety of sources. Datameer is an ETL software that may be used with little to no knowledge of programming. Users with no technical background may construct transformations and sophisticated SQL logics with a few mouse clicks using the intuitive graphical user interface.

    Fivetran

    Mostly Fivetran can be useful for working with risk reduction operations during agile data analysis processes. I.e., in the short term the heaviest data movement operations would be safe. If you need to create an automated infrastructure for the data, the ability to create data list transformations in SQL is useful for keeping the work integrable or with schema changes. For situations that require a lot of speed: setting up the Fivetran platform is very easy, as you only need to authenticate the sources of the data to start working, and this is excellent for covering fast storage operations.

    We have already renewed our Datameer license for year number 2. They have come a long way since their initial release and I am expecting them to be a top BI tool in the coming year. The tool was built by one of the original creators of Hadoop. Therefore fits on top of a Hadoop cluster like a glove

    Fivetran

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    Datameer

    Based on our findings, we are unable to utilize the Apache Hive platform due to the associated costs. We also looked into Informatica, but decided against it because of its expensive pricing and poor integration with other BI products. Those unfamiliar with SQL may nevertheless use this tool to build complex transformation processes after a brief onboarding session.

    Fivetran

    Fivetran came well with the connectors' availability and updates with the source changes. We had an idea on data requirements in our case which helped us to work out on cost implication and take a decision for Fivetran as a data provider for our organization. These were 2 places where Fivetran out-performed, other vendors.
