Stitch vs Census: What are the differences?
What is Stitch? All your data. In your data warehouse. In minutes. Stitch is a simple, powerful ETL service built for software developers. Stitch evolved out of RJMetrics, a widely used business intelligence platform. When RJMetrics was acquired by Magento in 2016, Stitch was launched as its own company.
What is Census? Sync your warehouse data to any app. It syncs your data warehouse with CRM & go-to-market tools. Get your customer success, sales & marketing teams on the same page by sharing the same customer data.
Stitch and Census can be primarily classified as "Big Data as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Stitch are:
- Connect to your ecosystem of data sources - UI allows you to configure your data pipeline in a way that balances data freshness with cost and production database load
- Replication frequency - Choose full or incremental loads, and determine how often you want them to run - from every minute, to once every 24 hours
- Data selection - Configure exactly what data gets replicated by selecting the tables, fields, collections, and endpoints you want in your warehouse
On the other hand, Census provides the following key features:
- Turn your warehouse into a Customer Data Platform
- Sync with customer facing tools
- No more data outages

We recently moved our Data Analytics and Business Intelligence tooling to Looker . It's already helping us create a solid process for reusable SQL-based data modeling, with consistent definitions across the entire organizations. Looker allows us to collaboratively build these version-controlled models and push the limits of what we've traditionally been able to accomplish with analytics with a lean team.
For Data Engineering, we're in the process of moving from maintaining our own ETL pipelines on AWS to a managed ELT system on Stitch. We're also evaluating the command line tool, dbt to manage data transformations. Our hope is that Stitch + dbt will streamline the ELT bit, allowing us to focus our energies on analyzing data, rather than managing it.
