"Xplenty has been great for us"

What do you like best?

Xplenty has been easy to use and the support has been great. We haven't had any issues. We use it as an add-on through Heroku. It gives you many connections options including direct to Salesforce or to PostGres.

What do you dislike?

We haven't had any real issues with Xplenty, You have to be creative with your connections to save node hours or you can pay for more of course :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a solid product that you can learn on your own. Knowledge of API's and data connections is certainly helpful, but Xplenty will you through creating connections and most connections these days are relatively well documented.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Xplenty has helped us connect several different databases including Salesforce. The connections are fairly simple to build and there is solid functionality to manipulate data where needed. We've been able to eliminate data silos and pull information from a finicky ERP that was previously a manual process to move data.

"Simplified ETL pipelines with tons of user level customization and yet highly reliable."

What do you like best?

Clean dashboard, optimum documentation for ease of user. System is highly reliable, yet they have elaborate error logs available in case of job failure. Also, job failures are gracefully addressed through job configuration where the latest successful run fills the data gap created from previous failed job. Proper alerting mechanism through emails is in place without any extra configuration required. Also, packages can be copied across accounts, this is useful in the case where we want to replicate an existing job configuration from one environment to another(for e.g. test to production) without any manual intervention. Lastly, I want to specifically mention the excellent support team Xplenty owns.. Thank you guys..!! Naftali, David, Omri

What do you dislike?

Nothing much is there to dislike about this product.

Yet I would strongly like to have an enhancement. While fetching data from an API(considering the case when response is in json), Xplenty currently auto-detects first level of json. But it can't auto-detect nested json. It maps it to either bag or map and then in the select component we manually need to extract the fields using jsonExtractScalar or jsonScalar. I would love if Xplenty auto-detects the nested json in the source component itself and not in select component. Basically, I want to pivot nested json response to unknown number of columns in redshift extracting fields from all levels of json hierarchy.

If this feature is currently supported, then please help me out implementing it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Loading data from various data sources(mostly APIs) into a central data warehouse. Also backing up the same data to some cheap storage. In my case, the data source is sparkpost, twilio and mixpanel APIs whereas the destination is amazon-redshift and amazon S3 bucket. It eases collection of analytics data.

What iPaaS solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great product and support team"

What do you like best?

As a bonus to the product features, Xplenty has excellent customer service. The team goes above and beyond to work with us to develop our data flows and answer any questions we have about the product in their real-time chat system. If bugs or feature requests are discussed, the support team works with us to find adequate workarounds and keeps us in-the-loop while the fix/feature is implemented.

What do you dislike?

Would love to see support for package versioning. Even the ability to view edit history would be a nice addition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Excellent support team, ongoing product improvement. Overall a great experience with the product so far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking for an easy way to compile/manipulate large amounts of data from a number of sources. Xplenty has provided a solution that has made prototyping and development easy, fast and reliable.

"Xplenty makes data integration very easy"

What do you like best?

- Xplenty allows me to acquire data, transform it, organize it and analyze the data intuitively and effectively.

- It allowed us to free up development resources that were previously tied up in making data integration pipelines with custom software. That is not needed anymore as Xplenty solves this issue for us and we can achieve the same result with significantly less resources and very quickly.

- We love the fact that Xplenty integrates with the major data warehouses like Amazon Redshift for example.

What do you dislike?

There are certain integrations that are missing as of now but I'm sure they will add them eventually.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out. I'm sure you will find that you have much more free time to focus on your business goal, instead of maintaining your data pipelines.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Moving data from one platform to another and also transformation of the data.

"SaaS online ETL solution at best"

What do you like best?

The user and tech support are amazing. The platform is pretty easy to use and you don't need a lot of trainning to use it. And the online help is really good.

What do you dislike?

The UI maybe improved, It's sometimme dificult to find some functions / packages. A better log / console / output solution will greatly improce the tools, especialy for debugging.

And last,, a real MDM solution will be a huge addons.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitively try it. This solution is really easy to use and cover 90+ % of the ETL needs of a small to medium business

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have to collect data from more than 30 differents sources. Xplenty help us to maintain all the various API call. We save hundred of developping hours. It also help more junior analysts to be able to aggregate data without the help of the senior team.

Last it help us to aggregate and normalize all our data srouces.

"Excellent support, great service!"

What do you like best?

Fairly easy to use tool that they are willing to guide you through! They even did custom connections for us! Beyond that, when we were confused about doing things, they were willing to walk us through and actually do some of the work until we understood.

What do you dislike?

Notification of holiday hours would be nice. We had a mission critical migration going on when Passover came, no support as everyone was off.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give xplenty a try. Work with the sandbox a bit, and if something is confusing, ask support, they always seem to reply within about 5 minutes for us!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been able to migrate from Netsuite into Google Bigquery, Bigquery to Salesforce, as well as various other combinations of software fairly intuitively! It's far easier to learn than other integration tools, and just as powerful!

"My xplenty experience"

What do you like best?

The best feature is the costumer support, they're always there in case you have any doubt. Even if you don't ask them something, they are constantly monitoring their system and asking you if you need any help with any of your running jobs.

What do you dislike?

Errors might not be the most descriptive, and it has happen to me that and strange error happens that I don't know how to solve. I had it happen that a package got stuck for too long (7 hours, compared to 10 min averawge) and they weren't able to fix it, but so far it has only happen once.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use, amazing costumer support. Hihgly recommended for data replication and mergin data from diferent sources to a common one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating ETL process, quickly, easyly and more importantly reliably. Benefits include the facility to create new packages and duplicate them, so you do less work when you need that. There's also a nice API which we us to complement the capabilities of Xplenty

"Huge time saver"

What do you like best?

Things we like the best -

1) Ease - It is very intuitive product.

2) Variety - It has tons of integrations ready to go.

3) No maintenance - Since it's on the cloud we don't have to spend our IT resources managing the systems.

4) Customer Support - There had been few times when I needed help with formatting the data. Live support was always there to help me. You get emails from real people when something fails - they are watching!

What do you dislike?

Package organization and inability to group components within a package (wink wink - Add a sequence container)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building ETL pipelines with the speed of light. We could write integrations using python but Xplenty saved us lot of time. We wanted to spend more time understanding data; not how to get to it and Xplenty did that for us.

"Excellent tool if you are looking for a powerful yet simple to use way to move your data."

What do you like best?

By far, their support is incredible. They are incredibly responsive and helpful and the people doing the support know their stuff. Next, I would say that they have found a nice blend of capabilities and simplicity. We have been able to get non-engineers productive in the tool very quickly.

What do you dislike?

I know that they are working on this but the new UI is much better but doesn't seem to be fully completed. We are still forced to jump between the old and new. Not terrible but it will be nice to be fully transitioned.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a lot of SaaS services that we use that lock up a tremendous amount of valuable data. We needed a way to bring this value back in house to combine with data from other systems to maximize its value. We were able to do this very quickly with xplenty and now we are able to take value adding aggregate data and push it back to these services such as Salesforce. This has made these tools even more valuable.

"Good Product backed by great service"

What do you like best?

What we love best about Xplenty is the near real time support we get from the team. Xplenty's point of difference is the customer support we receive. The product itself is good. Easy to use at a high level. The people at Xplenty are the difference - which is unusual for Cloud proposition. A nice change from dealing with a faceless machine.

What do you dislike?

If I had one complaint it would be lack of the ability to interrogate datatypes in the processing flow before it's pushed to the hadoop cluster. Sometimes troubleshooting the ETL process is a little slower than it could be because of that. I'm sure as the product develops that will improve - we have many examples where we've found an issue and then their engineers proactively work to solve it. Online Documentation could do with some improvement but that is mitigated by the customer service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're building our business around a completely automated no touch information flow. Xplenty has helped us realise that in an affordable fairly priced way. The particular problems we're solving is being in a place to flexibly deal with 1M new rows of information every day in order to make good decisions about the smart-grid infrastructure that we're getting that data from.

"Great Support and Powerful functionality"

What do you like best?

Amazing support. I always get a quick and helpful response. Visual structure of building data flows means I can more easily introduce less technical colleagues to the tool and have a higher expectation of their success.

What do you dislike?

Occasional UI glitches that I need the support team to fix. Lack of results simulation can make debugging slower. Iteration is slower when I need to allow it to complete and fail before resolving issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are building a data warehouse in Bigquery of marketing data to use in online reporting dashboards. This is merging data from multiple sources, including FTP file storage, Google Sheets, and external API's. We also leverage the tool to create more complex outputs such as forecasted data and generating deltas between periods. It helps to ensure we can generate the output exactly as desired, without needing to shoehorn into limitations of dashboard tools.

"Comprehensive Feature Set, Excellent Customer Support"

What do you like best?

Their customer support is excellent, they've addressed issues I've brought up in a timely manner and also implemented reference solutions for complex problems that are incredibly useful for getting the maximum value from their platform. Variety of data sources, destinations and intermediate transforms covers all of our ETL needs and most of our third-party integration requirements as well.

What do you dislike?

Entry level plan at 250 hours per month is on the expensive side. Lack of XML support (they support JSON just fine).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Overall this is an excellent product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ingest, clean and enrich client data before loading into our systems. Pull data from ad platforms like Facebook and services like Stripe. Generate and export reports for clients and for internal use.

"Good but could be cheaper"

What do you like best?

I like the relative power of the new UI, where you can connect a source to a destination and pass it through some transformations along the way. I configured this a while ago and haven't had to touch it, which is what I was hoping for. In most cases I've been able to take care of some of the configurations that other ETL solutions didn't allow.

What do you dislike?

The price for this service is very high, relative to other companies doing the same thing. There are plenty of cheaper ETL solutions around who are rapidly developing new features, and I'm not sure that xplenty will still be as attractive in a year. Also, there is at least one unusable feature that has yet to be fixed---I wanted to be able to synchronize from an Azure container, but this still doesn't work like the AWS bucket synchronization. Also, incremental database transfers are not particularly easy and required some SQL coding. This is a checkbox in most other ETL solutions I looked at.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

data warehousing. Also geo-ip tagging.

"Simple and Flexible Integrations"

What do you like best?

The number of integrations. Xplenty supports a good number of the platforms we use and makes it very easy to bring that data to our data warehouse.

I also love the pricing model. "cpu hours" is much more reasonable pricing than # of rows. I get a lot more value out of xplenty than its competitors.

What do you dislike?

Complexity and lack of documentation. I'm not looking to do a whole lot of ETL between the data source and destination. For example, it took me a long time to figure out the available options for "table". The documentation pointed me to the schema browser but it wasn't very clear that I needed to click "View v2017.2 SuiteTalk Schema Browser Online" then "Connect Browser" to view the list of tables. I would have expected xplenty to be able to query netsuite for a list of tables, then present a dropdown, similar to how its able to query for the list of columns.

Another example is LinkedIn. I don't know how I would have ever figured that out if xplenty did not provide a template. Many of the "integrations" listed on the website just come from supporting REST.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There's more involved than just typing your name/password for each data source and hitting go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrating all of our data sources into our data warehouse on a >nightly basis.

We have AdWords, Bing, Netsuite, and LinkedIn Ads hooked up. We would like Twitter Ads, Ringcentral, Outreach.io, cloud health, google sheets (source), and Marketo

"Great Service and tool!"

What do you like best?

In the time I've been using XPlenty, I really liked the tool and the amount of work it saved us from doing, that we achieved in just some hours with XPlenty. Also the chat support was very helpful.

What do you dislike?

I found the UI a part of the application that can be improved. In some times I found it a bit confusing. For example when running a package, the first time I was afraid that clicking the "Play" button will run the production package, I didn't assume that it would pop up a dialog to pick the environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Database migrations / Data transformation for analytics. It saved us effort and time of building a ETL tool or process.

"Great Cloud ETL service with A++ online support "

What do you like best?

Their ability to work with many sources (both relational and non-relational DBs, JSONs, XML etc.), but definitely the support team with their prompt responses and solutions.

I haven’t met many providers with such a patient and helpful team, which sometimes stay with you hours on the chat until you have what you need.

Also the tool has many features-yet-to-come, they always have suggestions and work-arounds on more complicated issues which haven't been implemented yet in the GUI.

Xplenty has a great API and many connectors to DBs and other cloud providers, making it easy to implement it into existing workflows.

What do you dislike?

Actually nothing, maybe those several missing features I wish they would be already implemented in the GUI (but hey, they are constantly improving)

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's easy to set up and start working on it immediately.

Try and see for yourself

"My experience with Xplenty"

What do you like best?

The customer support is one of the best I have experience. They were very prompt every time I would have an issue with using Xplenty. Moreover, the development team is also quite fast, as they were able to implement pagination for an API I was using in less than 2 days.

What do you dislike?

It's impossible to perform iterations for APIs unless i create a table with all the indexes and load them into xplenty. I also think the rest API modules should accept inputs coming from selects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would advise that you keep the support as efficient as is and improve the set of features, which is still rather basic for some use cases (like performing a REST API request multiple times).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm creating a data warehouse solution for a marketing company. The platform helped me gather data from a lot of marketing sources.

"It's good at what it's good at"

What do you like best?

As an SaaS ETL tool, it mimics some of the ETL tools "of old" such as Pentaho, SSIS, etc. But, by leveraging cloud services, you can have this ETL environment up and ready for development with a conversation - perhaps same day.

What do you dislike?

Needs the ability to change connection based on a variable (environments: dev/prod, etc). Without this, to ensure safety, we have to have separate packages for dev/prod rather than simply changing environments. They are very close to this with variables, but to my knowledge you can't use variables in the Connections. You also can't have "secure" variables that can be input, but never known to the end user. The new "beta" version of the UI adds some much needed features such as workflow, but it adds a TON of useless whitespace, which is the trend of the last few years. Significant waste of space, loved the compactness of the old version better. Needs folders (or worst case "tags") to organize packages. Should be a one-day implementation, shocked this doesn't exist.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand the limitations and ensure it will work for you prior to pulling the trigger.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloud to Cloud data warehousing. Great integration with Salesforce, Netsuite, GCP. Simple to get started if your cloud accounts aren't too locked down (VPN, etc).

"Top notch customer & support service"

What do you like best?

The live support chat is what separates XPlenty from its competition. 10/10 for that. The number of premade integrations is also in the top 3.

What do you dislike?

I have not come across any negative aspects so far. There are always more connections that could be (and are) added.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a ton of competitors out there but what really made me become a fan of XPlenty is its live support chat. Every data source is vastly different and has a steep learning curve when it comes to APIs. XPlenty has a lot of premade integrations but usually my clients have very specialized data sources online that require using the Rest API. Every single time in the past 3 months has the support been helpful, sometimes daily, all day long. Nevertheless, XPlenty is in the top 3 of the number of premade integrations I believe.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I help my clients get their social media and advertisement data from all their different online sources into SQL databases which they can then use for data visualization purposes. Not having to use multiple software to achieve this has been a big plus.

"Breaks the dependency on R&D"

What do you like best?

Xplenty saves us lots of developers hours (internal and external), simplify data integration and cancel the need in many Salesforce Apex Codes. Within minutes, you can create any process you want from multiple data sources for your needs.

What do you dislike?

As a non-developer, sometimes I need a step-by-step guide in order to understand (and not just execute) the processes I want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If I would have the option, I would use Xplenty 3 years ago, and save valuable time and resources.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a Customer Success team, we want to have the accurate data, real-time, in our CRM, for alerting and measuring purposes. With Xplenty, we can easily do that to give better service to our customers.

"A great tool for developing data processing"

What do you like best?

The tool is very easy to use, and does not require experts to use. Anyone with some basic knowledge in data manipulation (and business knowledge) can use it. The UI is simple, easy and clear. The support is GREAT!! we asked for a new connector and it was ready in less than a month.

What do you dislike?

We did not have any issues. If you need to tune performance, you might need someone with more technical knowledge (but this is the same as in any tool).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool to use. We do not use it for Big Data, but for our use it is great. They have great service!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Xplenty to enable our business users to create data processes for their own use (like query DWH and export data to Salesforce). It is very quick and has good monitoring.

"Allows me to easily access data from various sources"

What do you like best?

Once packages are created and jobs are scheduled, shipping data between sources becomes a completely automated process. Customer support is usually quick to respond to questions too.

What do you dislike?

Some of the packages to move data from certain channels are a little clunky, but they provide templates to make it easier to get started.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Moving all advertising data to Google BigQuery to make it easier to track performance without sifting through every channel. Also moved data from our mySQL database to BigQuery to improve query speed and reduce load on our live database servers.

"Xplenty makes the ETL process user friendly"

What do you like best?

Before xplenty I had almost no experience with the ETL process or data in general for the most part. Luckily their support team was fantastic and they were willing to walk me step by step through the convoluted mess that is data management.

Seriously they are available around the clock and always respond withing 5-10min.

What do you dislike?

I wish you could create folders for your packages so that related packages would be easy to find. I also would like better scheduling. Not being able to schedule jobs to SPECIFIC nodes means we waste node hours regularly or are forced to run a less than optimized scheduling system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You have to jump into it. After a week or two with assistance from support you will know the platform in and out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving too many to count but the main problems being solved are:

1) Cut development time in half for data migration and transformation (maybe more than half)

2) Operational Data Analytics

3) Call center monitoring

"Extremely Well Put Together - Lacks Advanced Functionality"

What do you like best?

Xplenty's integration and interface is bar none the best that I have seen in the business. They have put a lot of effort into building robust solutions very quickly.

What do you dislike?

Lack of advanced features and customization. Looping is a very important part to accomplish some of our most important API calls - unfortunately this was an area in which Xplenty did not succeed in meeting our expectations. Lack of Python or other programming languages was also an area that held it back from a more fully customization experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Determine the limits in which you can grow into the product. After several successful integrations we found ourselves at the mercy of the inability to push the product further.

"Xplenty eliminated all cron job headaches"

What do you like best?

Xplenty ETL platform removed our need to maintain cron jobs. Their customer support is also quite efficient in troubleshooting any pipeline transfer problems quickly.

What do you dislike?

Didn't like losing our primary support person after 6 months but such is the nature of tech.

If you have any ETL needs and cron jobs are too difficult to administer across multiple ETL jobs then you definitely need to give Xplenty a try.

"Great cloud-based ETL tool"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, connects to any database, very easy to schedule ETL jobs

What do you dislike?

The ETL transform functions aren't the best out there. It doesn't really stack up to the transforms you can do with other software like SSIS or Pentaho, but since you can use SQL you can really work around any of that if you do encounter a limitation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are building a Star schema data warehouse in the cloud and using Xplenty for the the ETL tool. It's been a very easy process and we've relied heavily on Xplenty for much of the processing since the source database isn't that powerful (we do aggregation and joining and calculations in Xplenty rather than using a SQL script off the database).

"Great ETL service allowing us to move at extreme speed"

What do you like best?

Xplenty makes it extremely easy to understand how to do really developed ETLing, this brings down the barrier and gives the power of moving and cleaning data to an entire company.

Xplenty has amazing customer support, and continues to proactively help us use the product as well as possible.

What do you dislike?

UI update could be nice, and the ability to schedule within a collection would be amazing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Moving data from production systems with order and minimal impact to SLAs. Cleaning data for standalone products, allows us to move extremely quickly.

"Awesome tool!"

What do you like best?

What I like best of the tool is how you can define a data workflow with their respective transformation in a really easy and visual way. Just by adding nodes in the package editor page you can add any type of sql command you like. Moreover the columns selector are kind of cool, where you can see which attributes you have available for that node.

What do you dislike?

There some bugs in the UI that make the experience a little bit difficult. For example there are some times where the validation fails at first, but when I refresh the page it passes. I would be awesome if I don't have to refresh at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would really recommend this tool for anyone, it was really easy to learn and we had a functional dataflow in few days. Editing these is also really cool and kind of fun actually. It makes it really easy to move data from an application to another with features that help you know which attributes you have available in each node of the flow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are syncing and transforming data from one app to another in order to perform data analytics. Xplenty came really handy when we were defining the architecture, we had a tough deadline, and at first we where considering the option of doing this our selfs, but it was a really crazy goal to accomplish. When we found about Xplenty we didn't even doubt about using it, it was the perfect tool to solve our issue. And by adding this one to our architecture, we could reach the deadline with a really good product!

Haven't found anything to dislike at this point. Product works well and has a fair price point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for integrating other softwares. Saves time and effort.

"Easy to use ETL-Tool with great support"

What do you like best?

The fast and qualitative support, the user interface and how easy it is to build connections and schedules.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes some things are not very clear and you have to ask the support. For instance the variables in a package are only going to work if you run the package as a job. I tried to run the REST API Connection in the package and wondered why it didn't work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure your data is of high quality

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are importing salesforce and marketing data from many different channels. The benefits are clearly automation of data flows and shape the basis of our analytics.

"Decent functionality, easy to use, limited documentation, poor version control"

What do you like best?

Relatively easy to use, strong customer support

What do you dislike?

Documentation is kind of weak, occasionally jobs will fail with no real explanation and work on reruns which scares me a little bit, no option to view past saved packages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's fine for out of the box stuff, lacks some customizability and documentation. The sweet spot for using Xplenty is probably a team with relatively strong technical knowledge but without the desire/time to set up a full Luigi/Airflow pipeline.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Xplenty to automate data transfer in and out of warehouses, collect from disparate sources, and to automate some other stuff similar to a cron job.

"Xplenty Saves Time and Increases Data Accuracy - In a Straightforward Manner"

What do you like best?

The employees at Xplenty, from management to the individual contributors, truly understand what small and medium businesses need to integrate data across their various systems. I came from very minimal experience working with SQL, REST APIs, and Salesforce SOQL. In a few weeks, we were able to connect our Salesforce into a SQL database for reporting, storage, and analysis. The time we saved and the insights we gained were invaluable.

With Xplenty's support, documentation, and straightforward design, there were very few challenges I faced. For any questions that came up, their support usually responded within a few minutes or at most the next business day, which was critical when we had time-sensitive projects. The cost of their service is well worth the accuracy, consistency, and time savings it provides. I would recommend them to anyone looking to connect data in CRM systems like Salesforce to SQL databases, and anything in between.

What do you dislike?

A while back, Xplenty transitioned to a new user interface for their product. It wasn't necessarily worse than before, but it took some time to figure out how to do the same tasks I was doing before in the old interface. This was a minor inconvenience, and I would suggest creating more documentation/training videos around how to transition from the old to new interfaces.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared to spend some time learning about REST APIs, JSON, and SQL. Doing so will give you a much better perspective on how and why Xplenty works, and this knowledge should help you figure out creative or nuanced solutions to connect your systems together. It is an investment of your time, but it will pay off personally and for the business as a whole.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Xplenty solves the problem of manual data extraction and insertion, and the errors that occur in this process. After configuration, which is a very important step, we realized a large time savings from this manual process. Any errors with our data that arose we knew were on our end, and this allowed for faster problem identification and resolution.

"Great ETL platform to integrate various data in the cloud"

What do you like best?

Guys are VERY responsive and have flexible approach to customers` needs. Whenever there is any problem they help at once, even if this would mean creating a new integration or writnig custom data flows.

What do you dislike?

Product needs some interface optimization fine-tuning and more connectors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Xplenty allowed us to build not only automated ETL workflows for a data warehouse but also dataflows for database migrations. We created one place where we can store all data from many sources.

"Amazing Customer Service"

What do you like best?

I think the product is good but the best part is the customer service experience because every time you face a difficulty the team is there to support (very responsive and very helpful).

What do you dislike?

The package preparation / design is not easy to use. For me, the template packages are a great feature but there should be videos explaining how to configure these packages.

How they bring hadoop to a very simple platform and based on cloud.

Fully configurable setting

Great support team, always available

What do you dislike?

Still need more feature and capability.

Need more feature supporting Google BigQuery

Package. Price per node hours need to be reduced (maybe should consider pay as you use scheme)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Should you consider having Hadoop running platform as your ETL but doesnt like the complexity of Hadoop, Xplenty will bring the same performance and capability with much less complexity to your platform

"Quick to get up and running, does simple stuff from multiple sources well"

What do you like best?

Quick to get up and running

Relatively easy to use

Good variety of connectors

What do you dislike?

Some of the functions for transformations seem to be very bespoke, maybe look to refine or make them slightly easier to use / understand

Maybe a wiki to say "if you are trying to do x... then you can use the following functions" - can be added following user support cases answered

Recommendations to others considering the product

Quick to get up and running

Look at connectors before making decision

good for use of simpler, need support (admittedly a quick response) for more transformation steps / more complicated

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

bringing in varied data sources into a central area

Combining different sets which we were unable to do before

Reducing manual reporting effort

"Xplenty"

What do you like best?

Customer support team, product reliability, customization

What do you dislike?

The UI can be a bit counter-intuitive when it comes to executing a job compared to similar services.

I think for the most basic use cases, the pricing is also slightly steep (but I found this across all similarly position services, so not a direct dig at Xplenty). If you need to get data warehoused quickly without dedicated, in-house resources, this is what you'll have to do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick, reliable data ETL services. Ability to avoid reliance on engineering and sidestep bottlenecks.

"Excellent tool"

What do you like best?

Xplenty provides a simple, intuitive interface for ETL operations. They have provided a number of feature upgrades since we have started using their tool, and their support is phenomenal.

What do you dislike?

Larger packages run slow and as a result can be tough to edit. I understand that xplenty is currently upgrading the UI to address this issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask questions. They have a great team and are eager to help.

"A Complete ETL Tool without the headache"

What do you like best?

XPlenty manages to be simple to setup and use while still putting an extensive array of functionalities and transformations at your disposal to establish a customized dataflow.

What do you dislike?

The amount of details fed back to the user via the UI on the jobs that ran (completed or failed) could be more extensive, but the live support - when a problem occurs - more than make up for this and more details are always available via the API.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not hesitate to contact XPlenty's live support, they will get you up and running in no time and will help you sort out common strategies in designing your pipeline.
