Product Details

What is Fivetran?

Fivetran replicates applications, databases, events and files into a high-performance data warehouse, after a five minute setup. The vendor says their standardized cloud pipelines are fully managed and zero-maintenance.

The vendor says Fivetran began with a realization: For modern companies using cloud-based software and storage, traditional ETL tools badly underperformed, and the complicated configurations they required often led to project failures. To streamline and accelerate analytics projects, Fivetran developed zero-configuration, zero-maintenance pipelines to deliver data into modern cloud warehouses.

Shaped by the real-world needs of data analysts and business intelligence users, Fivetran technology promises to enable organizations to control their data without complex engineering and ultimately supports data-backed decisions and company culture.

Fivetran is very well suited for any near real-time ingestion requirements for available plugins. Do not use it for complex data standardization as it only supports some features with that respect. Fivetran provides the required information on data volume, cost applicable, which is helpful to plan future ingestions. Sometimes historical refresh cost goes very high, but users also can be trained to save cost with appropriate measures.

When you need a super quick and easy way to load data from a third-party source to a warehouse when a delay of up to an hour is an option, Fivetran is the way to go. It is shockingly easy and yet does support a fair amount of sophistication at a reasonable cost. It lacks automation and infrastructure as code abilities and internal transformations are limited, but it shines at batch extraction and handles schema changes for you very smoothly.

Fivetran is a good choice if you want to get started quickly with replicating production transactional database tables to Snowflake with minimal impact on production. Setup is fast and Fivetran provides a user-friendly interface that can be used to resync individual tables if necessary. It's a good solution for a mature database schema where certain tables hold a very large amount of data, which when replicated into a system like Snowflake allows users to execute queries against the dataset that would otherwise be very slow and not perform well directly against the production database.

I think it's suited best for what it was built for, ETL pipelines expedited. If you are a startup that has a software product with various different data sources that you need to quickly and reliably bring all together to some kind of centralized data store, Givetrain is well suited for this use case. If that isn't part of your business needs to do this data consolidation before any analysis it probably isn't well suited for your use case.

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.

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.

[Fivetran is] very well suited when you are using popular and common data sources, such as the major ad platforms, and SaaS platforms such as Salesforce.
If the majority of your data sources are custom internal applications or databases, may be less value as you aren't leveraging the delivered connectors.

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.
