What is Fivetran?

Fivetran is a cloud-native data removal tool that streamlines and simplifies the data analysis process with a zero-maintenance pipeline that ensures quick and transparent data delivery from the source to the warehouse. It was created to empower analysts by allowing them to accelerate analytics and achieve faster time-to-insights without the need for complex engineering, allowing users of all technical skill levels to make more efficient data-driven decisions. It is a public-cloud hosted SaaS that is available through annual subscriptions paid via invoice. It is fit for small to large businesses. Starter, Standard, and Enterprise are the three tiers of plans, with Starter, Standard, and Enterprise being the most expensive. Fivetran assists data-driven businesses that benefit from business intelligence insights. E-commerce, retail, software, web services, cybersecurity, financial services, commercial real estate, and other industries are among the industries it serves.

Fivetran is a data-driven company that helps businesses with business intelligence insights. Among the industries it serves are e-commerce, retail, software, web services, cybersecurity, financial services, commercial real estate, and others. The solution then optimizes loadings by incrementally updating data sources in batches, with data load time configurable as frequently as every five minutes or as infrequently as every 24 hours. BigQuery, Snowflake, Azure, and Redshift are just a few of the popular cloud warehouses that Fivetran supports. The platform prepares data by normalizing schemas obtained from APIs, allowing it to be analyzed immediately. Transformations are always performed in the warehouse, ensuring that the raw data is always accessible alongside the transformed data; data is never lost, and changes can be edited and rerun on the raw data. If there are any hindrances or concerns in any process step, the system will notify users. Dashboards allow users to interact with the platform by displaying ELT processes in a visual, easy-to-understand format. The solution maintains transparency with granular system logs of every sync that users can cross-reference in their logging system. Users can manage data by using a set of policies and procedures that describe other data such as file size, date of data creation, tags, titles, authors, and so on. 

Thanks to the platform’s zero-maintenance configuration process, users can be up and running in 10 clicks. With streamlined data extraction and preparation processes, users can simplify their data stack, allowing for more accurate and efficient access to analytics. Thanks to automatic updates, data entry tasks are reduced, and real-time accuracy is ensured across storage facilities. The platform also reduces workloads on cloud data warehouses by putting the burden of demand on the warehouses’ servers rather than the warehouses themselves. Users can use the solution to extract data from various sources and load it into their data warehouse to create a single, unified source of truth in the cloud. Fivetran, unlike many other traditional data tools, prefers ELT (extract, load, transform) to ETL (extract, transform, load) (extract, transform and load). It ensures that transformations will not compromise stored data by flipping the last two steps and deferring data transformation, allowing users to perform analysis more deliberately and securely. With this platform, integrating with other systems is simple and painless. Users can pull data from their CRM, ERP, or other business solutions, as well as a variety of cloud data sources, allowing for real-time monitoring. Advanced security features are included, and the system complies with PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, and SOC 2 standards. It also encrypts components in transit and at rest, and it purges data after each sync. With instantly scalable cloud resources, optimized processes, and pricing plans that keep up with companies as they grow, the platform helps users navigate a world of exponential data growth. By signing up on the vendor’s website, interested buyers can get a free 14-day trial of the platform to test connectors and features. Users can create unlimited connectors for up to two sources, all pointing to the same destination. For more information on adding more sources or destinations, users can contact the Fivetran sales team. Fivetran provides technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When Fivetran receives a support request, a support agent is assigned to the case and will work with the client until the problem is resolved.
