Why Migrate to Visual Flow?

1

Cost-efficiency

Visual Flow was designed as an ELT tool that eliminates the need for manual coding when working with Spark, saving you both time and money. By implementing best practices for ETL infrastructure, you can significantly reduce data management costs in the long run.

2

Ease of getting started

Getting a new ETL project up and running can be done in as little as two weeks since Visual Flow is built upon proven architecture (Apache Spark, Kubernetes, and Argo Workflows under the hood of a drag-and-drop interface) with seamlessly integrated components and data source connectors.

3

Improved productivity

Visual Flow empowers you with a cutting-edge intuitive interface that simplifies data mapping. The user-friendly GUI enables business users to combine and integrate data from various sources, thus facilitating advanced data analysis.

4

Unlimited scalability

Visual Flow provides your team with the necessary means to efficiently process constantly increasing data volumes, thanks to the unlimited scalability and parallel processing capabilities of containerized Spark jobs.

Frequently asked questions

What skills should a Visual Flow user have?

Visual Flow users should know basic SQL, how data sources are used, and how the transformations you would like to apply work.

What are the cost benefits?

Solutions on, for example, AWS Glue and Azure Data Factory use a pay-per-use model, while Visual Flow is way more affordable on the minimal capacity of 100 (question) jobs.

How’s Visual Flow different from other open-source solutions?

Unlike other open-source-based ETL tools, Visual Flow provides load-balancing, streaming, and log analysis.
Moreover, implementing open-source solutions can be associated with difficulties, such as integration complexity, limited support, lack of enterprise-grade features, and skill gaps.
However, with Visual Flow, you have access to a team of experts who can resolve these issues or have already solved them.

Why should I pick you over DataStage, Informatica, SSIS, Nifi, or Sqoop?

Visual Flow is:

  1. Intuitive to install in the current environment and maintain by own IT resources
  2. Easily estimated, predictable in terms of costs, and doesn’t require strong, technical expertise
  3. Integrated with flow control and parallel data processing
I’m ready to go with you, but there’s not much data.

Not a problem! Unlike enterprise ETL migration solutions, ours is value-effective even with a small amount of processed data.
