Stitch vs Xplenty: What are the differences?
Developers describe Stitch as "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. On the other hand, Xplenty is detailed as "Code-free data integration, data transformation and ETL in the cloud". Read and process data from cloud storage sources such as Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud Files and IBM SoftLayer Object Storage. Once done processing, Xplenty allows you to connect with Amazon Redshift, SAP HANA and Google BigQuery. You can also store processed data back in your favorite relational database, cloud storage or key-value store.
Stitch and Xplenty can be categorized 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, Xplenty provides the following key features:
- Xplenty provides you with an visual, intuitive interface to design your ETL data flows
- Xplenty lets you integrate data from a variety of data stores, such as Amazon RDS, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server and MongoDB.
- Read and process data from cloud storage sources such as Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud Files and IBM SoftLayer Object Storage
