About the Services
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.

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.
AWS Glue supports the following connection types:
• JDBC-compatible data sources,
• Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS),
• Amazon Redshift,
• Amazon DocumentDB,
• MongoDB Atlas.
But there’s no mention of the latest number of data connectors available for AWS Glue.
AWS Glue provides an API for creating custom connectors. With this, you can connect to data sources unknown to AWS Glue.
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.
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.
AWS Glue can generate ETL code to transform source data into target schemas. Its graphical user interface (GUI) supports various types of transformations. These include handling missing values, filtering, mapping, aggregating, pivoting, and more.
If you prefer to code your transformations, AWS Glue supports Python and Scala.
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.
