Stitch Data is a cloud-first, open-source ETL platform that enables business teams to rapidly and securely move data from multiple sources to designated data warehouses for fast and efficient analysis.
The platform is an integral part of the Talend Data Fabric, providing prebuilt connectors to over 100 databases and SaaS applications, with support for leading data warehousing platforms like Snowflake, RedShift, BigQuery, and Azure Synapse Analytics.
Stitch Data offers a simple interface with ready-to-query schemas designed to accelerate the process of onboarding and extracting insights from new data sources.
The platform, as stated in one of its documentation pages, does not support user-defined data transformation. This means that you can’t carry out advanced data transformation processes on the platform. It does support and automate a few basic preload transformation processes, like JSON structures, data typing, object names, etc., but these are only sufficient for light- and medium-duty data warehousing needs. Advanced data transformation capabilities can only be accessed by signing up on Talend, Stitch Data’s “parent platform”.
The platform is also compliant with major security protocols, including SOC-2 and HIPAA.
