Sprinkle Pipeline is a good alternative to Fivetran due to its no-code data engineering capabilities and ability to host on your own servers.Start Free Trial
Your pipeline is scattered across multiple tools, fivetran doing the ingestion, transformations are executed via Airflow, data is stored in data lake and warehouse. It becomes very difficult to do impact analysis going thru logs of so many systems.
For data replication, there is a round-trip from your datasource servers to your data warehouse via the Fivetran servers. This leads to data egress cost charged by cloud providers.
If you want to have full control for reasons like compliance, you cannot host Fivetran on your own servers. Fivetran offers only SaaS deployment model.
Fivetran provides only data ingestion with very basic transformation capabilities. For any production grade transformation pipelines, you have to integrate and manage different tools like Airflow, and have to optimise transformations using custom coding in python or pyspark.
For debugging and also for building quick reports, you have to rely on different tools.
"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."
