    ETL Tools for ActiveCampaign

    CData offers ETL tools specifically designed for ActiveCampaign, enhancing the capabilities of ETL solutions to connect and interact with ActiveCampaign data. These tools facilitate robust, reliable, and secure data movement, utilizing both ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) and ELT (Extract, Load, Transform) methodologies to transfer data from ActiveCampaign. Among the most prominent tools for this purpose are Airbyte, Fivetran, Stitch, and Matillion, each offering unique features and capabilities tailored to various data management requirements.

    Airbyte stands out as a leading open-source ELT platform that provides both a self-hosted and a cloud-based solution. Since its inception in July 2020, Airbyte has rapidly gained popularity and is now used by 40,000 data engineers. It boasts the largest catalog of data connectors, syncing several petabytes of data each month. Major companies like Siemens, Calendly, and Angellist rely on Airbyte's services. The platform integrates with dbt for data transformations and offers orchestration integrations with tools like Airflow, Prefect, and Dagster. Its connectors are open-source, and it provides a Connector Development Kit for building new connectors efficiently.

    Fivetran, established in 2012, is another key player offering a managed ELT service. With around 300 data connectors, Fivetran serves over 5,000 customers, charging based on monthly active rows. It is a closed-source platform, which contrasts with Airbyte's open-source nature. Stitch Data, a cloud-based ETL platform, was developed on top of the open-source tool and later acquired by Talend. Stitch Data is utilized by more than 3,000 companies, although its reliability has been called into question due to issues with connector quality and support.

    Matillion is a self-hosted ELT solution that supports approximately 100 connectors and is used by over 500 companies. Unlike Airbyte, Matillion does not integrate with tools like dbt or Airflow. Meltano, an open-source orchestrator for DataOps, is built upon Singer's taps and targets but is more developer-centric, requiring engineering expertise to build connectors. In comparison, ELT tools are generally favored over ETL for their ability to handle unstructured data, provide more automations, and offer better data integrity, reliability, and flexibility, making them well-suited for data analysts and traditional data warehouses.
