Getting Started with Stitch Enterprise

Part Two

Integrations

Stitch connects to a large, diverse universe of databases, APIs, and data applications to replicate data. We use the minimum allowed permissions to connect to data sources and extract, process, and load it via our secure infrastructure.

Stitch eliminates the need for version, API, and script maintenance, enabling you to consolidate data from various sources with just a few clicks. Integrations can be set up in just a few minutes, and if you don’t have the right credentials or know where to find them, you can invite one of your colleagues to help you out right from the integration setup page.

Case Study: Instapage

Using Stitch, Instapage was able to consolidate data from more than 15 sources and boost internal collaboration without allocating a lot of financial and developer resources.

Stitch enabled the Instapage team to combine data from support tickets, chat, visitor tracking, and engagement and forecast support demand to the hour, leading to a revamp in their scheduling and hiring practices.

Guaranteed access to every data source

When we built Stitch, we focused on extensibility and ease of use. Because of this, we can uniquely guarantee access to every data source you and your team might need. We’re able to accomplish this through our open source project, Singer, which can replicate data from any source to any destination.

Singer integrations, or taps, can also run in Stitch, taking advantage of our authentication, monitoring, and alerting features. If there’s an integration you need that Stitch doesn’t currently support, there are several paths open to you.

Custom-built integrations

As part of an Enterprise contract, Stitch can build and commercially support custom integrations. We’ll work with you to establish requirements, ensuring the deliverable is to your specifications.

We can also introduce you to one of our implementation partners, who are experienced at writing and supporting Singer taps and targets. Please reach out to the Stitch Sales team for more information.

Do-it-yourself and Community-built integrations

If you’re the hands-on type, you could consider building your own Singer tap. This approach ensures that data extraction functions exactly as you need and intend it to.

When the ezCater team ran into a data source that Stitch didn’t support, they decided to develop their own AppsFlyer integration:

To extract data from AppsFlyer without Singer would have meant writing a script that runs on a schedule, pulls from the API, and pushes to Kinesis. The tap we wrote is just as simple, but because it's built with Singer it can be run inside Stitch, and now we don’t have to worry about running it, and we have no ongoing operations costs.

Senior Software Engineer, ezCater

By building their own tap, ezCater was able to get the data they needed when they needed it and still leverage Stitch’s infrastructure to do the heavy lifting. Additionally, their contribution benefits all Stitch users: AppsFlyer is now available to all Stitch users as a Community integration. Check out the rest of the ezCater story here.

Community integrations are data sources built and maintained by the Singer community. Commercial support is available for Community integrations as part of an Enterprise plan.
