Stitchdata connects to more than 130 connectors, including most popular data warehouses and databases as destinations. Customers can contract with Stitch to have them build new sources for them, and anyone can add a new source to Stitch using Singer, their open-source toolkit for writing scripts that move data.
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.
Stitchdata only provides the transformations required for compatibility with the destination, such as translating data types or denesting data when relevant. Aside from this, no extra transformation feature is offered.
Stitchdata doesn't perform arbitrary transformations, it performs only the transformations required to ensure the loaded data is useful and compatible with your destination. The transformations Stitch performs are dependent on the destination you choose. These can include: data typing, JSON structures, object names, and timezones.
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 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.
Stitchdata provides in-app and email chat support to all its customers (during its regional business hours), whereas the phone support is available only for Enterprise customers.

Stitchdata offers 14-day free trial. Pricing is based on the volume of rows and events replicated per month. Each Stitch plan is allotted a certain number of replicated rows per month. As a replicated row, the service counts a new row, an updated row, a sub-row or a copy of an existing row. In addition, access to some integrations depends on the type of plan you select, for example, Advanced and Premium plans come with row and destination add-ons. More details can be found here.
AWS Glue pricing depends on the number of Data Processing Units (DPUs) used per hour. DPUs are a measure of processing power and memory capacity. AWS Glue charges $0.44 per DPU hour. This means you pay only for what you use with no upfront costs or commitments.
AWS Glue also has Always Free AWS Glue 1 Million. It includes 1 million objects stored in the AWS Glue Data Catalog and 1 million requests/month.
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.
