Imagine a platform that seamlessly connects to all your data sources – marketing tools, CRMs, financial systems, and more – then automatically pipes that data into your chosen data warehouse (such as Snowflake, Redshift, BigQuery, etc.). That’s Fivetran, a modern, cloud-based automated data movement platform.  Fivetran eliminates the need for manual coding and complex data pipeline builds with its 150+ pre-built connectors. It truly is a “click and connect” experience.
