Fivetran works well when you have a lot of data in different places and want to get it all in one spot. I don't think it's as necessary if you have one cluster that needs to be replicated against and the data could wait a day. In this instance, there are other tools.

Talend Data Integration

Talend Data Integration is easy to use and learn. Talend Data Integration can perform bulk data migrations of up to a few million records without any issues. We have not tried it or had use case which required more than a few million records at a time. It works particularly well with databases and CRM software.

Pros

Fivetran

  • Quick replication of data with minimal lag.
  • Automated reporting if data is out of date.
  • The customer support team is relatively good.

Talend Data Integration

  • JSON parsing, if you are into highly nested JSON object parsing Talend has the ability to display the structure of JSON and allows you to define the extraction logic in the metadata. Same with XML source.
  • Customization, For mostly all ETL work you will have a component in Talend. And in case you have a very specific requirement you can end up easily designing a custom component that you can code and reuse and share with others.
  • Talend has a connectivity option to almost all the databases (relational or NOSQ)L and sources available. It also has generic JDBC/ ODBC drivers in case you need it.
  • I like the ease of deployment across environment (DEV and PROD) with the use of context variables.

Cons

Fivetran

  • A full schema refresh takes us two-three days and knocks us offline from monitoring up-to-date business KPIs, running updated analyses, etc. This is likely due to us having massive amounts of data (from a count(1) perspective, not size of tables perspective).
  • There's little to no progress estimate on the front end UI to see how long this refresh might take and you need to enable back end logging in Amazon to see where it's at in the sync process and derive rough estimates of completion time.

Talend Data Integration

  • Syncing with Git should be made easier
  • Can face issues with certain big data spaces
  • Support find it difficult to resolve complex issues

We use Talend Data Integration day in and day out. It is the best and easiest tool to jump on to and use. We can build a basic integration super-fast. We could build basic integrations as fast as within the hour. It is also easy to build transformations and use Java to perform some operations.

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.

Good support, specially when it relates to PROD environment. The support team has access to the product development team. Things are internally escalated to development team if there is a bug encountered. This helps the customer to get quick fix or patch designed for problem exceptions. I have also seen support showing their willingness to help develop custom connector for a newly available cloud based big data solution

Alternatives Considered

Fivetran

Honestly, we haven't done much investigation in a while, it just works 360 days of the year. The other five days there may be a hiccup that will throw us a day off of data, but it gets caught up in the end.

Talend Data Integration

Talend is much versatile in assimilating various different business use cases. It covers more functionality and is packed with tons of features to explore. It has the ability to fine tune to each project, and not be a one-fits all solution. Problems with Excel, is that it is not suited for large projects, collaboration work. Alteryx is a very costly alternative.

Return on Investment

Fivetran

  • I don't think about ETL (Extract, Transform and Load).
  • I don't process any ETL, it's set it and forget it.
Scott Laronge | TrustRadius Reviewer

Talend Data Integration

  • Easy to build complex data transformations.
  • Licensing model isn't that flexible.
  • Memory mangement for huge volumes of information. You have to modify ETL designs to handle it properly.
