SnapLogic calls their pre-built connectors Snaps. And they have 700+ snaps to connect and integrate data. This includes major relational and NoSQL databases, SaaS platforms, and more. So, you can be sure that major CRM, accounting, email marketing, and other SaaS apps are there. But if you cannot find your connector, call your Customer Relations Manager for a custom Snap.
But Snaps are not for connections only. Depending on the data source, a Snap can do more. For example, a MySQL Snap includes running Bulk Inserts or stored procedures.
SnapLogic regularly updates Snaps to ensure 100% compatibility.
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 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.

Meanwhile, the ELT Snap Pack provides transformations for ELT pipelines. With this, you can use SQL expressions and functions in the transformations. You can aggregate, cast to a different data type, join, filter, and more.
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.
