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 helps our BUs analyze data and create dashboards they can understand. While slowing down with a large database, it becomes less helpful. In my experience, it is excellent in consolidating information from several sources for analysis, decision-making, and knowledge gaps. Excellent at managing information access.

  • Data transfer speed tends to be slow when there is poor internet connection since SAP Data Intelligence don’t synchronize data while offline. However, this is not vendor fault, that’s why we have implemented robust wireless technology internet connection in our organization.

Good tool with lots of potential, but I still see a lot of room for improvement, e.g. when it comes to debugging functionality to understand exactly where pipelines fail and what the data at that point looks like (similar to BW debugging). Also, I am missing SAPs standard machine learning libraries (Python) to be pre-installed, among some other general usability improvements.

Performance
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.

There is still room of improvement in documentation around SAP Data intelligence. We struggle a lot to initially understand the feature and required help around performance improvement area,

Alternatives Considered
Fivetran
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.

One of the reasons to pick SAP Data Intelligence is the speed and security it provides, in addition to the excellent support it provides. It is also compatible with all popular databases, which is another reason to choose it.
