CleverTap vs Firebase: What are the differences?

Developers describe CleverTap as "Blazing fast analytics, powerful real-time segmentation, multi-channel messaging, A/B testing and personalization". We help over 3500 brands, including Jio, Cleartrip, BookMyShow, Curiosity, McDonalds, Sony, DC Comics, and Denver Broncos understand app behavior, and make their marketing data-driven. On the other hand, Firebase is detailed as "The Realtime App Platform". Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.

CleverTap and Firebase are primarily classified as "Mobile Analytics" and "Realtime Backend / API" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by CleverTap are:

  • Funnels
  • Retention Cohorts
  • Attribution

On the other hand, Firebase provides the following key features:

  • Add the Firebase library to your app and get access to a shared data structure. Any changes made to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
  • Firebase apps can be written entirely with client-side code, update in real-time out-of-the-box, interoperate well with existing services, scale automatically, and provide strong data security.
  • Data Accessibility- Data is stored as JSON in Firebase. Every piece of data has its own URL which can be used in Firebase's client libraries and as a REST endpoint. These URLs can also be entered into a browser to view the data and watch it update in real-time.

"Great real time analytics and engagement tool" is the top reason why over 3 developers like CleverTap, while over 318 developers mention "Realtime backend made easy" as the leading cause for choosing Firebase.

Instacart, 9GAG, and Twitch are some of the popular companies that use Firebase, whereas CleverTap is used by CleverTap, Rapido, and Triporate. Firebase has a broader approval, being mentioned in 859 company stacks & 997 developers stacks; compared to CleverTap, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

      Review ofFirebaseFirebase

      Firebase is great, cheap and very flexible. Their docs are very helpful and so is the customer support, but the one thing that is so awesome about firebase is that everything is done in realtime!

      Review ofFirebaseFirebase

      We were looking for a solution to find out about all the errors our customers experienced but never informed us about.

      We use it for a few things. We use it internally for a few dashboards because it’s actually really nice to have real-time dashboard data with Firebase. We also use it extensively for live order updating. For example, when a shopper is picking your items, you'll be able to go on your order screen. There will be live showing like found or not found or whatever. You'll have live position updating of your shopper on the map. You will have live information of the status of the order like “Nicole is now picking up your order,” and all these kind of things, so you don’t have to reload the page or pull or anything. Just live updates happen natively through Firebase API, which is nice.

      Used for storing results of users (malaria predictions) and displaying to user in the app. Although the realtime aspect wasn't huge in this project, it was much quicker to push data elements for each user as firebase elements since they were purely numerical and very small. And again, the idea of familiarity - I've worked with Firebase at previous hackathons, so no need to spend time going through docs, just straight to the coding.

      Firebase let's us iterate quickly. We've used the Realtime Database to build rich UX features– like push notifications– fast. Likewise, Firebase Authentication and Cloud Functions save us from having to rebuild redundant server infrastructure. Even though Firebase can get pricey, we've saved money in developer time.

      Still in development, but we will soon (January 2016) be releasing a version that uses Firebase to keep the front end up to date in real time. Certain data are synchronised across RDS and Firebase to optimize the user experience.
