Helpful and Easy tool to use!

5.0 5 years ago

Pros:

Fantastic software easy to use and best of all not expensive. Helps you simplify what usually becomes complicated. Now I manage ETLs without having to write or keep the code.

Cons:

For the meantime, Five Trans only offers one direction data sync. It would be phenomenal if it would offer a two way directional sync. However for the price, it is a great acquisition.

Alternatives Considered:

ELT with Fivetran and built-in support for dbt

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Overall, I consider Fivetran to be a leader in the space. I haven't been exposed to competing offerings that come close to the stability and feature richness of Fivetran.

Pros:

1. Hands-off, low code ELT data operations platform that meets expectations of ultra-small start-ups as well as large established enterprises. 2. Integrates extremely well with Snowflake and PostgreSQL data warehouse destinations 3. Provides (experimental at the time of writing ) support for Fishtown Analytics dbt through a completely seamless integration requiring absolutely minimal configuration 4. Integrates extremely well with PostgreSQL upstream data sources, specifically those hosted on Salesforce, AWS and GCP clouds, where write-ahead logs are not made available by the cloud providers.

Cons:

1. SDK for development of custom connectors and a choice of execution methodology (e.g. package, deploy and execute on customer-supplied IaaS)

Easy to set up and even easier to manage multiple integrations across multiple systems.

5.0 7 years ago

Comments: This software has allowed me to manage a vast majority of my major ETL integrations without actually having to write or maintain any code. This has been greatly beneficial for my time as I'm not able to devote more focus on other, more value-added tasks for the company. I'm currently only a team of 1 and the time that Fivetran saves is immeasurable. It just is a high quality product that does exactly what it says it does and does it reliably.

Pros:

Very easy set up. Troubleshooting is made simple when there are problems. The downtime has been minimal and appears to be getting better as they improve the product. Fivetran is also great value in terms of the service provided and overall cost. When I've had issues, their tech support has been quick to respond and helpful.

Cons:

Occasional delays do occur and there's sometimes no real good explanation for it. Most of the time I just assume that there is something wrong with the service Fivetran is trying to pull from but there isn't much detail on it/ estimates on when a delayed connection might catch up. Other than that, there's no way to make connections to services that aren't pre-built which is understandable but that should get better over time as Fivetran adds new connectors.

Industry Leader for a reason

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: We use Fivetran for all integration points where connectors are available. Support has been great and billing reasonable.

Pros:

Fivetran has many out-of-the-box connectors to the most frequently used data sources. This has allowed our business to gain quick access to many of the data sources needed. Their customer support has been outstanding for all issues I've had to troubleshoot. They continually work to develop new connectors and integrations with many. Dashboard is user friendly

Cons:

Sync times can cause issues with business processes if you need to start at a particular time multiple times a day. Choices are limited for users and sync times consistently change (i.e every hour does not have the ability to start on the hour but at a fivetran determined start time). Package integrations with DBT seem to have multiple issues, although Fivetran does offer office hours with support staff to assist. Would be nice to see a price breakdown for monthly MAR in addition to just the # of records.
