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.
Informatica offers 180+ pre-built connectors for cloud, on-premises applications, platforms, databases, and flat files. There are such connectors as JSON Target, OData, and REST V2 for REST API and OData service. The platform also provides Informatica Connector Toolkit for developers to create new connectors.
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.
Informatica offers various data transformation capabilities like aggregation, cleansing, masking, filtering, parsing, ranking, and more. The service processes data transformations in real time or batch and applies Apache Velocity transformation scripts to convert hierarchical inputs like JSON or XML into JSON, XML, or text output without flattening the data.
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.
