Fivetran is a cloud-based business intelligence solution which caters to needs of analysts, data engineers and business intelligence teams. The solution is HIPAA compliant and provides connectors to pull data from multiple sources. The solution is able to track operations through logs, replicate data from the cloud to the warehouse and more.
The solution enables users to automatically transform data to the type needed for the target data warehouse. The solution automatically updates data types in the warehouse when it is changed in the source. Fivetran also enables analysts to run analytics from predefined schemas and customize the names of schemas.
The dashboard allows users to connect to the data warehouse through connectors. Operations performed on the connectors can be tracked in logs. The sync between the data warehouse and source occurs in incremental batches and analysts can track the progress in real time. Built-in connectors enable direct fetching of data from the cloud. Integration of the solution is possible with various data warehouses like BigQuery, Snowflake and Azure.
Fivetran offers customer support via email.

Fantastic software easy to use and best of all not expensive. Helps you simplify what usually becomes complicated. Now I manage ETLs without having to write or keep the code.
For the meantime, Five Trans only offers one direction data sync. It would be phenomenal if it would offer a two way directional sync. However for the price, it is a great acquisition.
This software has allowed me to manage a vast majority of my major ETL integrations without actually having to write or maintain any code. This has been greatly beneficial for my time as I'm not able to devote more focus on other, more value-added tasks for the company. I'm currently only a team of 1 and the time that Fivetran saves is immeasurable. It just is a high quality product that does exactly what it says it does and does it reliably.
Very easy set up. Troubleshooting is made simple when there are problems. The downtime has been minimal and appears to be getting better as they improve the product. Fivetran is also great value in terms of the service provided and overall cost. When I've had issues, their tech support has been quick to respond and helpful.
Occasional delays do occur and there's sometimes no real good explanation for it. Most of the time I just assume that there is something wrong with the service Fivetran is trying to pull from but there isn't much detail on it/ estimates on when a delayed connection might catch up. Other than that, there's no way to make connections to services that aren't pre-built which is understandable but that should get better over time as Fivetran adds new connectors.

I have known these guys since they where an iddy pitty start up...There product is killer. Get all your SaaS data synced to your warehouse with out writing code or API or ETLs....Brilliant!
Like any start up, they have little quality issue .... but nothing material for the price you pay.

Currently, Fivetran offers only one direction data sync. Having both directional sync would be awesome.

Efficiency on creating data streams from all our 3rd party programs, this helps us retrieve our data much quicker and be able to spend less engineering time.
1. The ease of the interface and how it can be easily used by any user without any technical background.
2. The amazing customer service is one of the major things that I always point to when I think about fivetran's service. Any troubleshooting emails or questions that we may have are always answered at an extremely attentive team, whether it is a question to our AM or a technical issue that might even be picked up by one of the founders. In addition, any need for a new integration that we request is often considered and then eventually built in.
3. The time it saves by having a common integration ready to go is extremely helpful. Instead of having to require an engineer to build the connection, we are able to leverage fivetran for our data streaming needs.
There isn't anything in general I don't like about Fivetran in all honesty. I think generally the only con I would mention is that there are some features that could be improved such as improving visibility into what is happening after we do an integration such as logs of files uploaded, exact upload to column name references and allowing a little more flexibility on some of the newer integrations.
