Overall Satisfaction with Fivetran

Fivetran is used by our reporting and analytics team to ingest data from multiple SaaS, Ad platform, and internal data sources. Fivetran supports our ELT approach using delivered connectors for most of our data sources.
  • Easily connects to source data using delivered connectors
  • Transforms data into standard models and schemas
  • Has very good documentation to help quickly setup connectors
  • Alerting and notification could be enhanced and be more timely in some cases
  • The error messages when there are connector setup issues could be more clear
  • Fivetran has allowed us to dramatically improve our time to insight
  • It allows us to focus on business value as opposed to engineering
  • Reduced the amount of engineering resources we need to make data available
Fivetran is more intuitive and easier to use than code-based ETL/ELT tools. The data modelling Fivetran performs makes the data more usable more quickly. Fivetran's dbt support and integration is unique.

Would you buy Fivetran again?

Yes

[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.
