Excellent Data Pipeline

Reviewed on 29/6/2022

It was very easy to sign up and set up Facebook to BigQuery. The user UI is easy to use and step-by-step instructions are included. You don't need a dev to get things moving as long as you're passingly familiar with Facebook and BigQuery and can read directions.

Pros

I used Hevo to pipeline data from Facebook into Big Query. The service worked as expected and properly transferred my data. It was one of several services I evaluated for our data pipeline needs.

Cons

I had some integration needs that HEVO did not include, so I had to go with another provider who included those. Otherwise, HEVO was amongst my top choices.

The best Data Extraction service for Startups

Reviewed on 6/4/2022

Hevo was the ideal tool that I needed to bootstrap our data infrastructure. As the person who set everything up I am very satisfied with them and hope that this will be a long partnership.

Pros

Hevo is very easy to set up (the whole process is self explanatory) and has a lot of integrations. It also allows for a lot of flexibility with Rest API and Webhook integrations.
The UI is very well tought out and the whole product feels professional.
I should also point out the Consumer Service, which is great and very helpfull. I get answers every time I talk to them, and I feel my problems are being taken seriously.

Cons

Hevo doesn't allow precise control of the Ingestion and Loading frequency and times. You can only choose a frequency or specify certain times, but even this one is limited to a certain number of runs.
This is our only limitation with Hevo right now.

Hevo Rocks!

Reviewed on 11/1/2023

If I could give their customer service / support team 10 stars, I would. They've been very responsive and patient while I ask pesky questions.

Pros

I really like how intuitive it is to build a new pipeline and get data flowing from an API into a destination database - in our case Azure SQL.

Cons

I don't like that REST API calls that yield the same data are not considered "historical" from a billable event standpoint.

Alternatives Considered

Reasons for Choosing Hevo

We don't want to create code-based ETLs and data pipelines anymore. The maintenance overhead is way too high.

Hevo is a critical in connecting data sources across the org with each other and our warehouse!

Reviewed on 1/1/2023

Pros

We have multiple pipelines and connections with almost every piece of software across our organization. Hevo makes it possible for us to keep everything up to date and helps to centralize our reporting by brining current data into our warehouse for day to day analysis and reporting.

Cons

We have very few problems with Hevo. If we have any trouble it's almost always related to our usage limits.

Super-easy to deploy, great support

Reviewed on 22/3/2022

Hevo absolutely made it simple for us to move data from a wide range of disparate applications into a single Snowflake database.

Pros

I like how easy - almost trivially so - that it is to get started with Hevo. It literally just works. The team have made it really simple to start, and include a free trial. Also the support team are excellent. It has great documentation as well so you can synchronise easily from a wide range of sources and destinations.

Cons

Some things aren't as polished as you'd like. For instance, you can't categorise pipelines or sort them into folders. You simply have a huge list. Also, there's no easy way - without programming it yourself using the Hevo API - to manage pipelines in bulk. Let's say you have pipelines for similar databases with the same structures; you have to manage them by-hand, individually, or you have to make your own tools.

Hevo data for Extraction and Loading to Snowflake

Reviewed on 25/4/2022

Very Pleasing. I set it up once and I don't have to worry about it again.

Pros

Simple and effective hassle free table syncing between Cloud VM SQL Server and Snowflake DWH.

Cons

Getting Hevo white listed with other vendors such as FTP sites is the first big hurdle.
Sometimes I'd like to have it sync a view from my source system but it struggles with this. Instead I make it sync the source tables of the view.

Hevo- A smart and convenient ETL tool

Reviewed on 5/12/2022

it's overall a very good experience working with Hevo. Hevo support is very helpful in case of any failure.

Pros

Creating new data pipelines in Hevo is very easy and super fast. We need to just give connection details and boom!!! pipeline is ready to use within minutes.

Cons

Hevo should give detailed information about each run like when did exactly it start and end to calculate the overall time taken.

Hevo Data saved us

Reviewed on 27/6/2022

Pros

Hevo Data saved our company in more ways than one. For the bi-directional Hubspot features alone, this tool is worth the cost for us, hands-down. We were able to pull all of our Hubspot data into our data warehouse, annotate, and push back to custom properties and objects.

The tool worked so well, we began using it as the core ETL connector for our data lake, and are testing as our scheduled task manager for the core transformations for our data warehouse.

The pricing model has worked out well for us. The free trial to prototype how the thing works, and how we could be efficient with our usage of connectors, has also been wonderful.

Cons

THe list of connectors is really good, but not 100% where we wish. In addition, migrations from one tool to another (e.g. Intercom -> Hubspot) require us to do a bunch of manual mapping that is hard; other tools have these mappings canned and are therefore easier to use for that use-case.

The things which I most like about Hevo is the automation level in the product. Hevo will take care of everything from source mapping to destination mapping with just a few clicks. It has many useful features, be it table/column auto-mapping , resizing and basic transformations for complex data sources like Mongo where you want to flatten the nested data.

Cons

Dead simple database replication

Reviewed on 2/7/2021

Overall the experience has been quite smooth so far. The support provided was great and the initial setup was simple.

Pros

Hevo's interface is simple to use, while powerful at the same time. From our tests so far the pipelines work reliably and performantly, and the transformation tools (offered both in a visual manner or through custom Python code for more advanced workflows) are quite useful.
The customer experience and support provided is great.

Cons

I seem to be unable to apply new transformation rules retroactively. That would be an important feature to us as sometimes new fields need to be masked or hidden but were already ingested into the destination.

Hevo is an impressive feature-packed product with great UX

Reviewed on 8/12/2020

Pros

1) Self serve product with super UX - we were able to start our pipelines by ourselves within a day

2) Detailed documentation for every source / destination with appropriate up-to-date references

3) Was impressed by the overall speed - after submitting a job to queue, it picks up the job almost immediately

4) Transformation supports Python which is great, data can be manipulated by custom scripts

5) Full visibility and control over the entire pipeline

6) Schema mapper is great, auto-mapping works for most of the use cases. Manual mapping is also possible. It shows and asks user to confirm what query it is going to execute at the destination, which is good

7) Workbench available to run queries at the destination, custom data models available to create "views" from destination tables

Cons

1) Didn't quite like the limit on number of sources in plans

2) Schema mapper doesn't have an option to change column types at the destination

An Amazing ETL tool

We are using hevo to get Data seamlessly from our transactional DB to our datawarehouse. Hevo is reliable and plays an important part in our data pipelines.

Pros

Cons

In Schema Mapper/Overview tab in each pipeline, an option to skip muliple collections at a time using a check box might be a good feature which will be very helpful for us, otherwise its now taking lot of manaul effort to skip them if needed in a pipeline.

Reliable, easy-to-use and good price/performance ratio

Reviewed on 5/8/2020

Hevo won our lengthy product comparison against other leading tools like Stitch Data, Fivetran, Matillion, etc. They provide best-of-breed usability, scale, reliability and latency. Their monitoring, schema mapping, error handling and replay capabilities are excellent. We are supporting near real-time reporting in a Snowflake warehouse thanks to Hevo's streaming replication from RDS MySQL.

Pros

Hevo's interface is well designed, so that it is straight-forward to set up many pipelines. Unlike other tools, they do not force us into their own standards, for example for naming tables. The service is reliable and performant, including at scale. The team also consists of nice people who have been very friendly and helpful.

Cons

We have no complaints. Hevo's MySQL binlog replication works well for us.

Makes ETL really easy

Reviewed on 13/7/2020

Overall, I've seen the product evolve from a beta version to a very mature one in less than a year. Our Analytics team is very happy and can sleep soundly given Hevo is doing the heavy lifting round the clock.

Pros

We have 10+ pipelines streaming a few million rows from multiple databases to a warehouse. It's very easy to use and configure. It supports all popular database types as sources and we can put custom transformation logic in the pipelines. Hevo's support engineering team has also been very pro-active and helpful throughout our engagement to date.

Cons

I think the documentation could be structured in a format of Source (e.g. MongoDB) to Destination (e.g. BigQuery) with the exact steps required to configure this pipeline. Most users would come to Hevo with this type of requirements and it would aid with discoverability.
