Connectors

Celigo

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.

Hightouch

Hightouch can connect to 150+ connectors, including data warehouses, SQL and NoSQL databases, SaaS tools, and many more. There are more than 20 data warehouses, and about 10 of them can act as both source and destinations. The remaining 130+ act as destinations only.

You can use all available data sources in your reverse ETL pipelines for all plans. The pricing plan defines the number of available destinations. The free plan allows only one billable destination, not including free destinations like Excel, Google Sheets, and Airtable.

You also have two options if your source and destination are not in their list of connectors. You can either request Hightouch to support it or use the Custom Destination Toolkit and build it yourself.

Skyvia

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.

Transformation

Celigo

With Celigo, you can sort, group, filter, and more. You can make transformations in 2 ways: using rules or coding in JavaScript.

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.

But complex transformations require coding. This includes looping through a list to perform a calculation or restructuring the entire row with existing and new columns. So, you need JavaScript skills to do this.

Both rules and JavaScript transformations are available in Flow Builder and Data Loader.

Hightouch

You can perform transformations in Hightouch using SQL queries and functions with a visual table selector. You can also do dbt transformations like joining, aggregating, pivoting, and more in SQL or coding in Python.

You can design these transformations through Hightouch models after defining your data source. Your transformation options in Hightouch should be enough for almost any reverse ETL projects. And there’s even more transformation you can do in destinations like Excel or Google Sheets.

Skyvia

Skyvia is a full-featured ETL service that allows powerful data transformations. It is a no-code solution allowing data splitting, conversion, lookups, and many more.

You can use the Skyvia Data Flow and Control Flow for advanced data pipelines. Transformations for these advanced pipelines are flexible. It supports extending your data with new columns, conditional flows, and summarized values. And all these you can do with parameters, variables, and more for flexibility without code.

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. And you can also use DML commands like INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE.

Pricing

Celigo

The pricing plans for Celigo are available in G2. They are Free, Professional, Premium, and Enterprise. What you can get for each plan is available but not the price. You have to contact Sales to get a quote.

You can start with the 30-day free Ceiligo trial with all features accessible. Except that you can’t use the Sandbox environment where you can test your integrations. When the trial period expires, you need to upgrade to a paid plan or you will be switched to the Free plan where you can only have 1 flow integration and 2 endpoint with no Celigo Agent for on-premise data sources.

Choosing a paid plan will allow you to have more endpoints, flows, and access to API management. But for Professional and Premium plans, the API management is a separate price. Note also that the integrator.io Sandbox has a license with a separate price.

Celigo pricing is one of the dislikes in review sites. But some agree that you get what you paid for.

Hightouch

Hightouch pricing has 4 plans: Free, Starter, Pro, and Business. The main difference between the pricing plans is the number of billable destinations. Such destinations as connectors for Excel, Google Sheets, Airtable, and more are available for free. Destinations like Netsuite, Microsoft Dynamics, and Salesforce Marketing Cloud are premium destinations, available for the Business plan only.

Support, security and number of workspaces also vary depending on the plan. Hightouch offers a 30-day free trial for the paid plans.

Skyvia

Skyvia Data Integration is a freemium tool with an option to request a 14-day trial. So, price is not a barrier to entry.

And when you’re ready, paid plans start from $19 per month. Pricing tiers depend on a few factors. It includes the number of loaded records, scheduling frequency, and advanced ETL features. There are no sale commitments. And customers can upgrade or downgrade at any time. Check out a detailed comparison here.

If you doubt the price is worth it, check out review sites like G2. Aside from ease of use, reasonable pricing is one of the things Skyvia customers like. So, you can be sure the features you get are worth every penny.
