Intuitive, intelligent, powerful.

Reviewed on 11/5/2020

I've only had positive experiences with the product and company - these guys stand behind what they do.

Pros

This application is incredible. I used to think that syncing a cloud-based application into a local SQL server had to be addressed on a case by case basis. Then I found CData, which allows you to set up connections from multiple popular data sources to various destinations in a flexible and intuitive manner. Selecting tables/fields, scheduling sync jobs, etc. - all of it is very easy!

Our needs are limited to syncing a few sources into a local SQL server database, primarily so we can report on it using Tableau. However, the application allows for many more data sources and destinations than we are using. It's clear the product team has made great strides for their app to meet the needs of many.

Additionally, the support team is fantastic. They are not only knowledgeable and helpful, but the company has been shown to be very customer-centric by mobilizing development resources as needed to meet our needs through updates to the application on multiple occasions.

If you are looking for middleware to sync data between systems - look no further!

Cons

The application is locally installed on a machine, as opposed to being cloud-based. Would be nice to access it from anywhere. That said, this hasn't ever really been a hindrance. We have it installed on a server machine which I can remote access from various workstations.

Alternatives Considered

Talend Data Fabric and Blendo

Reasons for Switching to CData Sync

I don't recall all of the details, but the other products were ruled out pretty quickly in comparison. CData just seemed so intuitive.

Simple to use and very powerful for building your data warehouse

Before decided to go with CData Sycn I spent 6 months to trial on many different options and tools. Taking into accounts cost and maintenance, CData Sycn provided the most effective way to bring the Saas database into our on premises Data Warehouse. Setting up trail is very easy as well, you have access to the full feature but limited number of rows to proof the concept.

Pros

We use this bring multiple Saas database into our on premises data warehouse (SQL Server). This software is so powerful and easy to use. It does not require deep technical knowledge on how to deploy this. The support team was very helpful during deployment. The documentation of this software is very comprehensive.

Cons

The only downside to this is for all the connectors I setup there is no increamental upload which will make the data sync so much more efficient. having to sync the entire table can take a while especially once database grow biggest over the years. I hope CData Sync developer team will bring this feature soon!!

Simple & effective way to load data into our Azure SQL data warehouse

Reviewed on 2/7/2020

It's a powerful data load tool for organisations that don't want more complicated ETL tools. Customer service is great and I recommend CData Sync.

Pros

CData sync has proved itself to be a simple & reliable tool for loading data into Azure SQL. It has got a lot of flexibility in terms of how and when the data is loaded. It supports incremental loads. It's powerful and simple at the same time

Cons

We wanted to use the Sage50 UK integration but the driver does not expose all the data we needed. I think that is more a limitation of the Sage50 UK API. We now extract our Sage50 UK data with ODBC and then run an incremental load using CData Sync every 15 minutes. It works well.
