Data Pipelines

Organizations are aspiring to become data driven. Intuitive decision-making is getting replaced by fact-based decision-making that is backed by data. Often, enterprises find it difficult to implement this data-driven decision-making as most of the workforce performing this task could be non-technical. Integrating data to make it accessible for analytics is a highly technical process. This is what data pipelines enable organizations to do; making data analysis easier for business analysts.


Pipelines in Hevo

A data pipeline, or Pipeline in Hevo is a no-code data processing framework that loads data from any Source such as a database, SaaS application, or file into a Destination database or data warehouse. For example, you may load data from your Facebook Ads account to a Google BigQuery data warehouse for analysis.

With just a few clicks you can have analysis-ready data at your finger tip, without any data loss. You can even view samples of incoming data in real-time as it loads from your Source into your Destination.

Pipeline Components

The following form the key components of a Pipeline:

  • Source: A Source is a database, an API endpoint or a file storage that holds the data that you want to analyze. Hevo integrates with over 100+ Sources. Read Sources.

  • Transformations: Python or UI-based Transformations are useful when you want to clean, enrich, or transform your data before loading it to your Destination. Read Transformations.

  • Schema Mapper: The Schema Mapper lets you map your Source schemas to tables in your Destination. Read Schema Mapper.

  • Destination: The Destination is the data warehouse or database where the data collected from Sources is stored. Read Destinations.

In a Pipeline, one Source maps to one Destination only. However, the same database or data warehouse may be configured as a Destination for multiple Sources.
