Getting Started

Welcome to Hevo, the easiest and the fastest ELT on cloud! Using Hevo Pipelines, ingest data from a variety of applications and systems into a database or data warehouse in near real time. To get started, you essentially need:

  • An active Hevo account. You can start with a 14-day full feature, free trial account.
  • Access to the Source system (Integration) where your data resides.
  • A Destination (a database or data warehouse) to which the data must be replicated.

Hevo provides a quick 4-step process to set up a data Pipeline. A simple Pipeline can be set up in less than 3 minutes whereas a complex one could take you around 30 minutes.

Here are the steps for setting up a Pipeline in Hevo:

  1. Select and configure your data Source.
  2. Select the objects/tables to be replicated.
  3. Select and configure the Destination.
  4. Optionally, set up transformations.

Ta-da! Your Pipeline setup is complete.

Post setup, Hevo moves data to the Destination in 2 steps:

  1. Ingests the historical data from the Source in batches and loads them to the Destination.
  2. Once the historical data ingestion completes, Hevo fetches data from the Source in micro-batches at frequent intervals (depending on Source configuration) and applies them to the Destination.

Here are the steps in more detail:

  1. Select and configure the Source:

    a. Start creating a Pipeline.
