Sprinkle Pipeline is a good alternative to AWS Glue due to its No-Code approachStart Free Trial
AWS Glue is not friendly to non-technical users. For instance, since all the tasks run in Apache Spark, you need to be well-versed in Spark to tweak the generated ETL jobs. What’s more, the ETL code itself can only be worked on by developers who understand Python or Scala.
Glue is limited to only AWS ecosystem. You can import only import data from S3 and or from databases, using DMS (Data Migration Service). There is no support for other SaaS applications like Google Analytics, Facebook Ads etc.
Glue primarily works on S3. There is no way to do incremental data processing and transformations to create realtime pipelines. Due to the lack of incremental sync, you cannot see the real-time data for complex operations.
For customising ETL code, AWS Glue only supports two programming languages, Python and Scala.
Debugging and finding reasons for data discrepancy related issues is quite cumbersome, and requires lot of developer's bandwidth.
"Swiggy’s hyperlocal time-critical business model requires quick and accurate insights.Therefore, most business and product teams need to do analyses by themselves. To make this happen, we needed a no-code analysis platform that was feature-rich and easy to use at the same time. Sprinkle has served that purpose very well for us. Today, we have hundreds of business and product users running thousands of analyses every month without the need for any analysts."
"The data team has been able to reduce the data dependency on them. Through the self-serve analytics on Sprinkle, the business & product users are able to get the required data & visualisations with ease themselves. Once the models are set up, it is very easy for users to build on new dashboards, which is very helpful in catering to ad-hoc requests."
"The tasks like building the data pipeline, which could have easily taken up to 2 weeks, can now be achieved with Sprinkle in a day or so. The reporting tasks that could have easily taken 4 to 8 hours can be done through automation on Sprinkle in half an hour, which is a game-changer for sales."
"A great data integration tool which helped our company bring together different data sources like MySQL, Mongodb, Segment and S3. It had all we wanted from a data integration and management platform at one place. Moreover the Sprinkle team is really supportive and flexible in their client support and always available even for smaller questions."
"Sprinkle helped our analytics team to focus on building models instead of worrying about data. Proactive support from sprinkle makes it easy to implement projects faster in our organisation."
