Fivetran Partners With Databricks to Extend Cloud-Based Connectors to the Lakehouse
Customers Can Expand Insights by Centralizing Operational Data Alongside Big Data Into Delta Lake
Fivetran, whose automated data integration technology helps analysts centralize data into leading data warehouses, announced a partnership with Databricks, the leader in unified data analytics, to simplify infrastructure for Business Intelligence (BI) and Machine Learning (ML). The inclusion of Fivetran in Databricks’ Data Ingestion Network introduces Databricks as a destination for the 150+ Fivetran automated data connectors.
“Our partnership with Databricks means customers will now be able to centralize the ecosystem of SaaS apps and other key operational data sources into a single unified lakehouse to power machine-learning as well as traditional business intelligence workloads”
Data engineering and data science teams that support ML and BI initiatives need data to feed their models and dashboards. Yet the integration and maintenance of key operational data sources from a variety of SaaS applications, internal databases, event collection, and file systems into an accessible ready-to-use data model, across both architecture requirements, is often a roadblock to the success of these projects. Fivetran automates the integration of these data sources into Delta Lake, an open source project that provides reliable data lakes at scale. Teams can now leverage traditional data alongside big data while eliminating complexity of repetitive configuration and maintenance.
