Celigo supports more than 200 connectors. This includes databases, SaaS apps, and more. But your chosen plan limits the number of connectors you can use. The free plan allows you to have 2 endpoints or connectors in 1 flow or integration. You can’t do much in the free plan unless you move to a paid plan.
You can also let Celigo connect to on-premise data sources using the Celigo Agent. With this, there’s no need to whitelist IP addresses from Celigo to your on-premise server.
There’s also a universal adaptor for creating new connectors. So, if your data source can use REST, HTTP, or FTP, Celigo can communicate with it.
Airbyte has over 300 built-in connectors. This makes it one of the most comprehensive data integration tools available. These connectors cover a wide range of data sources. This includes databases, cloud platforms, SaaS applications, and more. Some of the most popular connectors include Salesforce, HubSpot, and Google Analytics.
Airbyte also offers a custom connector SDK and development service. So, no worries if your data source is missing from the list of pre-built connectors. With these options, you can build your own connector or have one built for you.
Skyvia offers more than 160 connectors, and more to come very soon. It supports connectors for CRMs, accounting, email marketing, e-commerce, human resources, marketing automation, payment processing, product management, all major databases and DWH, flat files, and more. It’s also not a problem whether your data is on-premise or in the cloud.
You can access your on-premise data with peace of mind using the Skyvia Agent. It allows you to connect to databases like SQL Server, MySQL, and more using an encrypted connection. You need to download the Skyvia Agent and install it. Then, download a secured key file and place it in the same folder as the Agent. The Agent is like an unbreakable metal door, and you use the key file to open that door to your on-premise data. You can also set it up so that Skyvia can access only the resources you specify and nothing else.
Customers can also leave a request for a new data connector. And Skyvia will prioritize building it without additional payment.
Celigo allows using rules to define simple operations to transform your data. Some examples are flattening JSON or XML structures or removing columns you don’t want to include in the integration.
Airbyte’s ELT approach allows for flexible data transformations through dbt. Meaning you can do the transformations using SQL or Python. So, there’s no drag-and-drop moving forward. And dbt is another paid product if you have a team of data professionals. It’s free if you have one developer access to use.
Airbyte supports a wide range of transformations. Be it filtering, aggregation, joining, and more. Customers can also create custom transformations to fit their specific needs. This wide range is only possible because of coding in dbt.

Moreover, Skyvia has an Expression Builder to build formulas with many functions. With this, you can convert or extract parts of the data or form new values to suit your needs. And if you love coding in SQL, Skyvia can further extend your transformation needs. It supports multiple joins, groupings, CASE expressions, and more in SELECT queries.
