About the Services

Jitterbit

Jitterbit is an iPaaS platform that offers app integrations. It launched in 2003 and serves thousands of customers, including Rolls Royce, Walmart, and T-Mobile today. Harmony and Data Loader are Jitterbit’s integration products.

Harmony has the Cloud and Design Studios for creating integrations. Cloud Studio runs in a browser, but Design Studio is a desktop app that you need to install. Both have visual interfaces to design integrations.

Meanwhile, Jitterbit Data Loader is for integrating Salesforce data, databases, and flat files. You can schedule the integration to run on your specified frequencies.

Customers who rely on Jitterbit trust that their data is safe. Jitterbit has certifications for SOC 1 and 2, GDPR, and others.

Alteryx Designer

Alteryx Designer claims to be an all-in-one tool. That is from data preparation to analytics. And G2 and Gartner report positive feedback from end users. Alteryx as a company started in 1997 and became one of the trusted data platforms by known brands. It has various products, including Alteryx Designer Desktop and Cloud.

Alteryx Designer allows you to blend, prep, and analyze your data. Coding is optional, and the tool offers drag-and-drop capabilities. It’s good to see reviews from other users for specifics because some say that it’s easy, but others say there’s a steep learning curve. And note that the Desktop Edition is for Windows only. So, Mac and Linux users are out of the picture.

If you need to switch between Desktop and Cloud and back, it is not possible for now. Because the 2 Editions are 2 separate tools. You can’t migrate your workflows from the Desktop to the Cloud and vice-versa. You need to create them from scratch. That’s why you need to choose between the two and stick with your choice.

Alteryx implemented many measures to ensure the safety of customer data. They have earned certifications like HIPAA, SOC 1 and 2, and GDPR compliance.

Skyvia

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.

Connectors

Jitterbit

Jitterbit supports 15 generic connectors for RESTful apps, databases, OData, and more. The rest are application connectors like Salesforce, Paypal, and more. Combined, Jitterbit has 170+ connectors. This does not include connectors made by Jitterbit partners.

You can create a custom connector using the Connector Builder or Connector SDK. This is an option if your data source is not in Jitterbit’s pre-built connectors.

Jitterbit also supports on-premise data sources using Private Agents. So, Jitterbit covers both your cloud and on-premise data sources.

Though the connector count is impressive, your chosen plan limits how many you can use. So, if your company has 8 or more data sources, you need an Enterprise plan to integrate them all.

Alteryx Designer

Alteryx Designer supports over 80 data connectors. It includes data on cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. And popular databases such as Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL.

You can use the Alteryx Connector SDK to create a custom connector. This allows customers to connect to any data source. This means you need a knack for Python programming to create custom connectors.

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

Jitterbit

Jitterbit offers transformation as an integration project component. It acts as a step in an operation to map or transform inputs to a resulting output. With this you can apply data cleansing or other business logic to your data. Customers can also leave the data unchanged in case there’s no need for transformation.

There are three display modes for a transformation: Mapping, Script, and Preview mode. Mapping and Script modes provide tools for configuring it. Then, Preview mode allows you to test it with sample data.

The platform also allows script components written in either Jitterbit Script or JavaScript. This will add flexibility to transform data, perform calculations, or perform logic validation. But this will increase the learning curve.

Alteryx Designer

With Alteryx Designer, you can perform a wide range of transformations. Be it filtering, sorting, aggregating, pivoting, and more. The software also supports data profiling and cleansing.

You can perform data transformations in Alteryx Designer using a drag-and-drop interface. Some of the transformations are the Formula, Multi-Field Formula, and Cross Tab. It makes it easy to transform data without coding. But for complex scenarios, you can code using Python or SQL, or do machine learning.

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.
