Fivetran
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.

Snaplogic is unique from other IPASS tools if you're very sensitive about data security as they have an on-premise option where your data never needs to leave your data center. And data pipelines can be quickly created if Snaplogic has the requisite connector to your data sources. On the downside, if you're transforming a large amount of data for example in training machine learning models, a tool with elastic compute capability is more appropriate.

Cons
Fivetran
  • More detailed logging
  • More flexible choices for time range over which records are synced
  • More options for masking and excluding sensitive data
Read full review
Snaplogic
  • They need to have a way to connect to GitHub to allow the users to maintain their version control in GitHub. This is a missing functionality.
  • As pipelines become complex, it's difficult to have all the snaps stitched together - just like to see it done differently.
  • They do not have a way to start/stop a preview. This is hard to use, especially if you have to stop an accidental preview invocation.

This has been hands down the BEST software company I have ever used and dealt with. I am a 25 year IT veteran at this college. They go above and beyond in soliciting our feedback/input and proactively follow up about bugs, issues, etc. I have given multiple potential clients my thoughts and after seeing the SL demo they all sign up. I appreciate their support model, it's REFRESHING!

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.

They can be prompt but they have not been as useful as I've wanted. We had a bug that affected many of our customers through an API connection between SnapLogic and our platform. Eventually they were able to figure it out, but it took a long time of negotiating between our engineering team and theirs. Additionally, we installed the SnapLogic groundplex for our customers and we've run into a bunch of problems of connectivity. If SnapLogic offered to be on those calls with our clients to troubleshoot how to fix these problems, I would give them a better grade here.

The groundplex in our VPC is very nice for security reasons and the SnapLogic team was extremely helpful during our implementation

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.

Snaplogic
We opted for SnapLogic due its ease of use and the flexibility it offers, it was the platform that was strongest in both application integration and data integration and both were use cases we wanted to be able to cover.

Return on Investment
Fivetran
  • Development cost have reduced for each connector
  • The pay-per-use model is still not out their which requires lot of overhead cost
Read full review
Snaplogic
  • We have cut development time down by at least 70%
  • The software was more on the expensive side at renewal which required some further approvals to be sought for the spend
  • More developers are able to build and use Snaplogic pipelines in their projects
