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.
Hightouch is a reverse ETL tool that syncs your data warehouse with cloud apps your business runs on. Since its launch, its customer base has grown including Spotify, NBA, and TripAdvisor.
It works by defining the source and target of your data. You can select from 150+ sources and destinations. The pricing plan limits the number of destinations you can use. You can define the pipeline model using SQL, dbt, or a visual table selector. Hightouch allows the sync schedule to automate the data flow. You can perform syncs hourly or more often in the highest-paid plan.
Hightouch secures your data with SOC 2, HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA, and Privacy Shield. So, it ensures your data safety and privacy.

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.
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 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.
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 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.
