About the Services
Jitterbit is an iPaas platform that offers automated pre-built data workflow templates between various data systems as well as a possibility to create new applications to streamline business processes. It was founded in 2003 and offers its customers 120+ integration templates with pre-built data flows.
Jitterbit provides services for more than 3,000 companies with its low-code integration solution. The platform suits for businesses of all sizes and charges its customers according to the number of connections.
Rivery is a fully-managed SaaS platform. It provides a unified platform for data ingestion, transformation, and workflow orchestration. It started in 2018 and now has offices in New York, Austin, Tel Aviv, and London.
Rivery uses an easy, no-code wizard interface. But for flexibility, it allows coding in Python and SQL for data transformations. Rivery refers to data pipelines as Rivers. You can do the following 3 types of rivers:
- Source to Target River for data ingestion,
- Logic River for data transformation and workflow orchestration,
- and Action River to make REST API calls.
Any of these rivers can benefit from the 200+ pre-built connectors.
Rivery runs exclusively in Amazon Web Services (AWS). So, the compliance and security certificates of the AWS platform are in effect. Rivery does not keep any customer data that flows in their pipeline.
Skyvia is a no-code cloud data integration platform which supports a big variety of data integration scenarios including ETL, ELT, Reverse ETL, data migration, one way and bi-directional data sync, workflows automation, etc. It was created by Devart in 2014 to boost data-related performance: cloud data integration, backup and management.
Skyvia offers more than 160 ready-made data connectors for dozens of thousands of free users, including 2000+ paid customers. It's easy to use, offers drag-and-drop interface and suits both IT professionals and business users.
Skyvia has flexible pricing plans for each product, making it applicable for businesses of all sizes, from a small startup to an enterprise company. Also, Skyvia's freemium model allows users to start using it with a completely free plan and then decide if further upgrade is needed.
It is hosted in a Microsoft Azure cloud which provides the best data security and complies with a wide set of security standards including SOC 2, ISO 27001, and many others.

Jitterbit offers more than 120 pre-built data integration flows between various cloud and on-premise applications. They can be found within the marketplace with a catalog of Integration Recipes for one direction data integration and Process Templates, pre-built integration use cases that execute a specific business process using objects across multiple applications or systems. The platform offers a Connector Builder with no-code interface to create standards-based HTTP/REST connectors.
There's also a Connector SDK, Java library for developers to create custom connectors. The Connector SDK offers the most control over creating connectors, but requires a developer familiar with standard Java development practices and tools, such as Maven, Docker, Postman, and Git. However, Jitterbit allows HTTP for REST connectors created only with anonymous or basic authentication, as OAuth 2.0 isn't supported.
Rivery supports 200+ connectors for databases like Oracle and SQL Server. And SaaS platforms like Salesforce and HubSpot. And flat files like CSV. It also has the ability to connect to online sources through REST APIs. And use Rivery WebHooks to connect HTTP endpoints to cloud data warehouses. And stream real-time events and notifications.
Rivery regularly updates its connectors to ensure 100% compatibility when you connect.
Skyvia offers more than 160 connectors and the number is rapidly growing. Among these connectors there are CRM, accounting, email marketing, e-commerce, human resources, marketing automation, payment processing, product management, all major databases and DWH, flat files, etc. Customers can also leave request for creating a new data connector and Skyvia will prioritize building it without additional payment.
Jitterbit offers transformation as a project component that is used like a step in an operation to map or transform inputs to a resulting output by moving data, cleaning data, or applying business logic. Customers can also leave the data unchanged in case there's no need for transformation.
There are three display modes for accessing a transformation: mapping, script, and preview mode. Mapping and script modes provide tools for configuring the transformation, while preview mode provides tools for testing the transformation with sample data.
Transformations happen in a Logic River. And inside you can use SQL for in-warehouse transformations. Or, use Python for more complex scenarios. You can also use conditional logic. It will allow you to get different transformations depending on a condition. Then, you can put the transformed results into a variable, a Python DataFrame, a flat file, or a database table. But note that Python is for Professional and Enterprise plans only.
Skyvia is a full-featured ETL service that allows building data integrations with powerful transformations between multiple data sources. It is a no code solution with support for data splitting, complex expressions and formulas, lookups, and many more operations.
Skyvia's Data Flow and Control Flow components can be used for building more advanced ETL data pipelines with support for multiple connectors and additional features like modifying the data, flowing through them, splitting flows of records into multiple outputs, or modifying data flow variables.
Jitterbit offers support depending on the client's subscription plan. It can be reached via the Jitterbit support portal or email. Support response depends on the subscription plan and can take up to 48 hours to get the answer. There's also a possibility to ask questions within Jitterbit community.
The platform also provides a library of assets and trainings within the Jitterbit University.
Rivery offers various ways to get you up and running in your data integration efforts. It includes 24/7 global support. And also, on-boarding and dedicated customer success services that vary by plan.
It also has a community forum where customers can share their knowledge. And finally, online documentation, webinars, and eBooks. Check these resources first prior to sending support issues.
Skyvia offers free email, chat (on website or in app), and forum support for all customers. It also provides extensive documentation with lots of tutorials and user guides.
For paid customers there's also a phone support option, and additional support options for Enterprise customers.
Jitterbit offers a free trial by request. Pricing depends on the number of connections, additional features, support and training levels. For example, the most popular version allows data integrations for no more than three applications.
Overall, Jitterbit provides its customers with three pricing plans: Standard, Professional, and Enterprise. It also offers discounts for nonprofit organizations and educational institutions.
Rivery lets you select between annual contracts or on-demand, pay-as-you-go pricing. Pricing is based on a credit system called the Rivery Pricing Unit (RPU). You compute RPUs based on the processed data size in bytes. Or the number of executions for API-based sources.
The pricing plans include the Starter for $0.75/RPU and Professional for $1.20/RPU. But for the Enterprise plan, you need to contact sales.
All plans include the following:
• Unlimited users,
• All 200+ sources and 15 targets,
• Unlimited usage,
• Reverse ETL,
• Change Data Capture (CDC),
• Unlimited SQL transformations,
• and 24/7 global support.
Python transformations, however, are only available in Professional and Enterprise plans. Note also that in the Starter plan you can only do up to a per hour synchronization. And up to 5-minute frequency for the higher plans.
Skyvia Data Integration is a freemium tool with an option to request a 14-day trial. Paid plans start from $19 per month. Pricing tiers (from Basic to Enterprise) vary by the number of successfully loaded records, frequency of scheduling and the inclusion of the advanced ETL features. There are no purchase commitments and customers are able to upgrade or downgrade at any time depending on their needs. A detailed comparison can be found here.
