About the Services
Hevo is a no-code, low-code data movement platform that handles ETL, ELT, and Reverse ETL. It launched in 2017 and today, more than 2500 organizations trust Hevo. This includes Abbot, Hugo, and more.
The Hevo Pipeline UI uses a simple fill-in-the-blanks form. And from here you can specify the sources, transformations, and destinations. Meanwhile, you still have the option to reverse ETL using Hevo Activate. It supports 150+ connectors but the number of destinations is 15+ only. Reviewers from sites like G2 wish there were more destinations.
You can start with Hevo for free. But it limits the connectors you can use to 50+.
Hevo complies with data privacy and security standards. They have certifications for SOC2, GDPR, HIPAA, and CCPA. But only the Business pricing tier ensures HIPAA compliance.
AWS Data Pipeline
AWS Data Pipeline is a cloud-based data integration service from Amazon. It works well with cloud and on-premise data sources. Amazon launched it in 2012. And since then, it helped thousands of customers move and process data.
But unlike AWS Glue, Data Pipeline is not serverless. It requires an Amazon EC2 instance to perform processing.
AWS Data Pipeline has a web interface to define your data processing workflows. And it requires no coding knowledge. In one place, you can schedule, automate, and track your data workflows. It’s more of a fill-in-the-blanks rather than drag-and-drop.
AWS Data Pipeline is like any other AWS service when it comes to security and privacy. It’s HIPAA eligible and has various certifications, including SOC 1 and PCI DSS. Rest assured that your data is in safe hands.
Skyvia is a no-code cloud data integration platform for many data integration scenarios. It’s an all-rounder tool for ETL, ELT, Reverse ETL, data migration, one-way and bi-directional data sync, workflow automation, and more. Devart launched this fantastic product in 2014 for cloud data integration and backup.
Skyvia offers more than 160 ready-made data connectors. These are available for thousands of free users, including 2000+ paid customers. Big names like Hyundai and General Electric trust Skyvia to process their data. Its easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface suits both IT professionals and business users. And don’t take our word for it. Listen to G2 reviewers about how easy it is to start and work with it. Data integration experts who used other tools can adapt with little to no help from support.
Skyvia has flexible pricing plans perfect for small startups and large enterprises. So, it makes it applicable to businesses of all sizes. Also, Skyvia’s freemium model allows users to start using it now and then decide if they need to upgrade later.
The safety of your data is also our prime concern. So, we hosted it in Microsoft Azure cloud, providing the best data security and privacy. It complies with a wide set of security standards, including SOC 2, ISO 27001, and many others.

AWS Data Pipeline
AWS Data Pipeline has data connectors for AWS RDS, JDBC data sources, and more. These let you connect to various data sources. Be it databases, cloud platforms, and storage systems. Some of the most popular ones include Amazon S3, Amazon RDS, and Amazon Redshift.
AWS Data Pipeline allows you to connect to other data sources using AWS SDKs. This allows you to connect to any data source with an API or a JDBC driver. With this, you can use Java, .NET, and others.
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.
Hevo Pipelines supports 2 ways to create transformations. First is the Python-based transformations. So, you need Python coding skills to do this. Another option is the drag-and-drop transformations. Both ways of transformation support aggregating, cleansing, filtering, and more. These are user-driven transformations.
Automatic transformations occur in Hevo before it reaches the destination. This includes table and column name sanitizing, date conversion, and more. Note that Hevo always converts dates and times to UTC format. So, if you use a different time zone, you might get surprised with this conversion.
Hevo also supports post-loading transformations. This happens when you already loaded your data in the destination. When you need post-loading transformations, Hevo requires you to use SQL models.
For more advanced transformations, Hevo also supports dbt transformations.
AWS Data Pipeline
AWS Data Pipeline supports various types of transformations like filtering, aggregation, and normalization. You can use a simple drag-and-drop interface to perform transformations. Or write your transformations using a programming language like Python or Java. For even more complex transformations, you can also use Hive, Pig, and MapReduce.
Scheduling data transformation activities is easy with AWS Data Pipeline. And you can also check it in real-time using the AWS Management Console or through API calls. With AWS Data Pipeline, customers have complete control over their data transformation process.
