Matillion, dbt (data build tool), from Fishtown Analytics
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.
