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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Jitterbit

Jitterbit offers a free trial by request and there is no information about the length of this trial period. Pricing depends on the number of connections, extra features, support, and training levels. Jitterbit provides its customers with three pricing plans: Standard, Professional, and Enterprise. It also offers discounts for nonprofit organizations and educational institutions.

All plans include unlimited cases per year, a customer success manager, and more. They also include API platform and Options as add-ons only. Whether these have separate pricing is not clear. You need to contact their Sales for this. Customers also get all Jitterbit Harmony features. It varies only with number of Private Agents, Agent Groups, and environments.

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.

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.
