The smartest way to replicate data into your warehouse

Fivetran builds technology to help analysts load data into a warehouse.

We’ve built the only zero-maintenance pipeline, turning months of ongoing development into a 5-minute setup. Our connectors bring data from applications and databases into one central location so that analysts can unlock profound insights about their business.

Thanks Tom & Mike. Im the Cofounder of Fivetran. Fivetran provides automated data synchronization from APIs like, databases like MySQL, and tracking pixels like snowplow.js into Amazon Redshift. We've also added a full CSV uploader! We built Fivetran to help analysts and analytics teams more easily access the data they need without having to wrestle complicated APIs for months getting their data pipeline setup. Fivetran is the only zero-configuration data integration tool for analytics teams that can be setup in 5 minutes, literally. Try it yourself, Setup a full free trial at
Mmmmmm Middleware hunt!
This looks pretty useful. Anyone here using redshift to combine all their various analytics data? I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Might be something we use for PH. This would save me from writing the integrations myself. Similarly, I know has a redshift integration as well. I believe it can at least get your GA & mixpanel events pushed straight into redshift.
@mscccc (In a previous life) We basically piped *all* our data to Redshift with the eventual goal of stopping reliance on GA & mixpanel. We then used Looker ( ) to analyze the data. However, we did all the piping through our own app, and not through a 3rd party.
@ai If you had to, would you do it the same again? Any regrets? My goal is to bring together/analyze data from a few separate systems. (+ longer term storage)
@ai @mscccc Hey Anand, building your own data pipeline is definitely a viable option, but often times teams don't have the technical bandwidth to build / manage these API integrations on an ongoing basis, and find it more cost affordable and faster to use a product like ours, and then use a product like Looker on top of the data that we deliver. BTW, we support pulling data from both GA & Mixpanel.
@mscccc absolutely. In fact, I would've started trying to aggregate events on our own and relying on redshift solely from day 1.
@taylorwcbrown right - I kinda get it. One of the reasons to use redshift is to collect, store and analyze data how you want. I don't particularly see a need to pull GA/mixpanel data into Redshift - those tools provide decent visualization capabilities and great scale. I'd want to circumvent their use and go directly to Redshift. My $0.02.
