Adding Reverse ETL to Your Fleets

Adding Reverse ETL to Your Fleets

Our team at Shipyard is hard at work developing new integrations to use with your Fleets. Today, we are excited to announce three integrations to tackle reverse ETL inside of Shipyard: Census, Hightouch, and Rudderstack.

Introducing our Reverse ETL Blueprints

Starting today, Shipyard has two Blueprints that allow you to incorporate Census, Hightouch, and Rudderstack into your Fleets. The combination of Shipyard and these Reverse ETL vendors will allow you to get data to your stakeholders as soon as it is ready for them.

By providing your credentials along with information about the specific sync, you can use Blueprints to:

  • Trigger a Sync
  • Check Sync Status

Ditch Schedule-Based Refreshes

Before Shipyard, data teams were forced to look at the average time upstream processes took to complete before they could schedule their Reverse ETL syncs. Thankfully, Shipyard allows you to ditch the guessing game. In Shipyard, you can setup a workflow that will begin a sync the moment the upstream process is complete.

With the use of the Check Sync Status Blueprint, you will know the exact moment that your sync finishes. This allows you to run downstream processes from your Reverse ETL processes as soon as your sync is complete.

Build Trust with your Stakeholders

There is nothing worse than realizing another part of your data pipeline errored out and bad data went out to your stakeholders. With Shipyard, we stop this issue right in its tracks. If an upstream process fails, the fleet will stop running until you are able to remedy the error. On top of this, you can also schedule an automated alert to go out on Slack or email the moment an error occurs. You can have the peace of mind that bad data will never go out to your stakeholders.

Incorporate Reverse ETL with the Rest of your Data Stack

A reverse ETL tool generally does not live on its own in the data stack. There are a number of upstream and downstream processes that a data team would love to connect to their reverse ETL syncs. Shipyard allows you to create Fleets that connect all of your data tools together.

Here are a few examples of workflows that you can now create inside of Shipyard:

  • Send an email notification to stakeholders when an upstream process fails causing a delay for the Reverse ETL sync.
  • Download a CSV with the new data from the sync.
  • Send Slack alerts when a sync is complete allowing the team to know exactly when data is ready for them.

Get Started Today

Census, Hightouch, and Rudderstack Blueprints are now available to all users and can be tested with any account. Sign up for our free Developer Plan to start automating your data orchestration process.

We're looking forward to seeing how users will take advantage of this functionality to quickly launch, monitor, and share data pipelines

About Shipyard:
‌Shipyard is a modern data orchestration platform for data engineers to easily connect tools, automate workflows, and build a solid data infrastructure from day one.‌
‌Shipyard offers low-code templates that are configured using a visual interface, replacing the need to write code to build data workflows while enabling data engineers to get their work into production faster. If a solution can’t be built with existing templates, engineers can always automate scripts in the language of their choice to bring any internal or external process into their workflows.‌
‌The Shipyard team has built data products for some of the largest brands in business and deeply understands the problems that come with scale. Observability and alerting are built into the Shipyard platform, ensuring that breakages are identified before being discovered downstream by business teams.‌
‌With a high level of concurrency and end-to-end encryption, Shipyard enables data teams to accomplish more without relying on other teams or worrying about infrastructure challenges, while also ensuring that business teams trust the data made available to them.
