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.
Hevo offers 150+ pre-built connectors including databases (both relational and non-relational types), cloud apps, webhooks and REST API to extract data. 40+ of pre-build connectors are offered for free.
Hevo supports all major data warehouses (BigQuery, Snowflake, Redshift) and databases (SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MySQL) as destinations and besides native connectivity provides ingesting data using webhooks from any data source that offers webhook connectivity, and from any source that provides REST APIs using HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST, or DELETE data.
For new data sources, Hevo accepts customer requests for building custom integrations.
Skyvia offers more than 140 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 consider 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.
Hevo offers both pre- and post-load transformations. It provides two ways for preload data transformation: Python code-based or drag-and-drop. There are also automatic transformations for the source data while loading or ingestion process.
Hevo's transformations are called In-flight Transformations and include: table/column name sanitation and compression, JSON parsing in destination, conversion of dates to timestamps in UTC format, addition of meta fields, and dropping of fields. There are also User-driven Transformations that include: cleansing, data enrichment, re-expression, filtering, normalization, successful ingestion of failed events. Any post-loading data transformation or extraction can be done through SQL query-based Models. Hevo also integrates with the dbt Core, however, it's still in beta version.
Note: Data loading must be stopped while performing any data transformations.
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 more.
