About the Services
Boomi AtomSphere is an integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that provides integration of any combination of cloud and on-premise applications without software, appliances, or coding. It was founded in 2000 and offers NUMBER data connectors to more than 20000 of its customers worldwide.
The platform supports real-time data integration and scales to meet high-volume needs in mobile, batch (ETL), and EDI environments. Boomi charges its customers based on the number of connectors applied and features include in the pricing plan.
Rivery is a fully-managed SaaS platform. It provides a unified platform for data ingestion, transformation, and workflow orchestration. It started in 2018 and now has offices in New York, Austin, Tel Aviv, and London.
Rivery uses an easy, no-code wizard interface. But for flexibility, it allows coding in Python and SQL for data transformations. Rivery refers to data pipelines as Rivers. You can do the following 3 types of rivers:
- Source to Target River for data ingestion,
- Logic River for data transformation and workflow orchestration,
- and Action River to make REST API calls.
Any of these rivers can benefit from the 200+ pre-built connectors.
Rivery runs exclusively in Amazon Web Services (AWS). So, the compliance and security certificates of the AWS platform are in effect. Rivery does not keep any customer data that flows in their pipeline.
Skyvia is a no-code cloud data integration platform which supports a big variety of data integration scenarios including ETL, ELT, Reverse ETL, data migration, one way and bi-directional data sync, workflows automation, etc. It was created by Devart in 2014 to boost data-related performance: cloud data integration, backup and management.
Skyvia offers more than 160 ready-made data connectors for dozens of thousands of free users, including 2000+ paid customers. It's easy to use, offers drag-and-drop interface and suits both IT professionals and business users.

Boomi connects to more than 90 sources, including popular data destinations: data warehouses and cloud applications. Boomi supports the following types of connectors: application, event-driven, technology, and custom. Developers can write their own custom connectors in Java using Boomi's Connector SDK. Connectors are also divided into two categories (Boomi- or partner-maintained) and categorized by connector classes (Small Business, Standard, Enterprise, Trading Partner).
Customers can deploy connections up to the number of licenses based on their subscription.
Rivery supports 200+ connectors for databases like Oracle and SQL Server. And SaaS platforms like Salesforce and HubSpot. And flat files like CSV. It also has the ability to connect to online sources through REST APIs. And use Rivery WebHooks to connect HTTP endpoints to cloud data warehouses. And stream real-time events and notifications.
Rivery regularly updates its connectors to ensure 100% compatibility when you connect.
Skyvia offers more than 160 connectors and the number is rapidly growing. Among these connectors there are CRM, accounting, email marketing, e-commerce, human resources, marketing automation, payment processing, product management, all major databases and DWH, flat files, etc. Customers can also leave request for creating a new data connector and Skyvia will prioritize building it without additional payment.
Boomi supports a set of prebuilt transformations through procedures called shapes (such as encryption/decryption, search/replace, test encoding, and combining documents) and lets users create custom preload transformations to convert source application format into the destination format.
When a process runs, the inbound connector in the Start shape retrieves the data within available types (database, EDI, flat file, XML ot JSON). The resulting data goes into the process as one or more documents. Documents move through the process steps sequentially, where each shape performs a specific task on the data and then passes it onto the next shape.
Transformations happen in a Logic River. And inside you can use SQL for in-warehouse transformations. Or, use Python for more complex scenarios. You can also use conditional logic. It will allow you to get different transformations depending on a condition. Then, you can put the transformed results into a variable, a Python DataFrame, a flat file, or a database table. But note that Python is for Professional and Enterprise plans only.
Skyvia is a full-featured ETL service that allows building data integrations with powerful transformations between multiple data sources. It is a no code solution with support for data splitting, complex expressions and formulas, lookups, and many more operations.
Skyvia's Data Flow and Control Flow components can be used for building more advanced ETL data pipelines with support for multiple connectors and additional features like modifying the data, flowing through them, splitting flows of records into multiple outputs, or modifying data flow variables.

Rivery lets you select between annual contracts or on-demand, pay-as-you-go pricing. Pricing is based on a credit system called the Rivery Pricing Unit (RPU). You compute RPUs based on the processed data size in bytes. Or the number of executions for API-based sources.
The pricing plans include the Starter for $0.75/RPU and Professional for $1.20/RPU. But for the Enterprise plan, you need to contact sales.
All plans include the following:
• Unlimited users,
• All 200+ sources and 15 targets,
• Unlimited usage,
• Reverse ETL,
• Change Data Capture (CDC),
• Unlimited SQL transformations,
• and 24/7 global support.
Python transformations, however, are only available in Professional and Enterprise plans. Note also that in the Starter plan you can only do up to a per hour synchronization. And up to 5-minute frequency for the higher plans.
Skyvia Data Integration is a freemium tool with an option to request a 14-day trial. Paid plans start from $19 per month. Pricing tiers (from Basic to Enterprise) vary by the number of successfully loaded records, frequency of scheduling and the inclusion of the advanced ETL features. There are no purchase commitments and customers are able to upgrade or downgrade at any time depending on their needs. A detailed comparison can be found here.
