Suggestions for ETL Engines

  • 1.  Suggestions for ETL Engines

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for recommendations for ETL engines that are cloud-based, relatively easy to use, and cost-effective. We've been using the on-premise version of Jitterbit for a number of years to move data from Salesforce to our public website and now need to upgrade to the cloud-based service (Harmony) at a cost that is almost twice what we are paying now. This does not include the cost of getting a developer to help us set up and integrate the data, and then maintain the application.

    If you have any suggestions for other services, I'd love to hear about them. I'm also interested in utilizing this engine to grab data from multiple sources as a way to create more robust data/analytics reports about our business processes and customers.

    Talend- https://www.talend.com/ - is the leading open source tool, and you can take a look at how it's used with Salesforce here https://www.talendbyexample.com/talend-salesforce-reference.html

    Talend can serve as part of your infrastructure for data warehouse/lake and multi-platform reporting.
