Datameer- A tool that makes complex things simple

  • April 03, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The workbooks in datameer provide a friendly GUI interface. An analytical mind can easily prepare data using the inbuilt workbook function even without much technical knowledge.

The support team is highly responsive. (10 out of 10)
What do you dislike?
There may be more opportunities in making UI more interactive and add more sophisticated Data prep tools.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It had allowed me in developing and scheduling ad-hoc reports. Also while troubleshooting, I don't find much difficulty as most of the related resources is available on its website.

An easy-to-use, simple, flexible transformation tool

  • March 04, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The tool is simple enough that users with no SQL knowledge can build reasonably complex transformation flows after a brief onboarding tutorial. The bells and whistles are limited, making for an easy-to-understand and less intimidating product for no-code users. But, because you can use SQL transformation, users with SQL experience have all the capabilities of using SQL.
What do you dislike?
The user interface needs a little work, but I'm sure somebody will work that over time. For example, I was trying to build a complex transformation with a lot of steps, and it became hard to navigate the flow diagram.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Transforming data is easy with this tool. Giving non-technical users in-database transformation capability is a big step towards data democracy for any organization trying to become more data-driven.

Simple Transformation Tool for All Levels of Technical Skill

  • January 15, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The Datameer SaaS platform is perfect for data modeling for analysts with all levels of SQL skills. If analysts are not technical and prefer a GUI-based approach, Datameer provides an easy-to-use interface that enables the same end result as if the transformations were written directly in Snowflake. Datameer also allows users to switch between the GUI or SQL, or simply utilize SQL itself. Another nice thing about Datameer is the transformations are written back to Snowflake as Views rather than Tables, so analysts can store their queries without affecting the original data design.
What do you dislike?
As the SaaS platform is still new, there may be opportunities to build upon the existing transformation tool, but the team is very receptive to feedback.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Datameer has allowed me to transform data and quickly generate insights using data from various sources without requiring in-depth technical knowledge or having to rely on technical subject matter experts at my company.

Easy and Powerful for Analytics and Transformations

  • January 01, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Datameer is an easy-to-use ETL platform and requires Less to NO coding skills. Non-technical people can easily navigate to GUI and build transformations with just a few clicks, SQL complex logics with just a few clicks.

Datameer can be used for data transformation and analytics on the data, but row-level operations are a bit limited. Datameer is built for No-code SQL operations within snowflake so it cant be compared with ETL tools, it is UNIQUE among other ETL tools in the market.

Non-SQL users can use this Datameer that generates the SQL queries in the form of views, this is a very good feature of Datameer.
One more good feature is to extract the data in the form of CSVs at any step of the transformations that you do.

Detailed documentation that explains every functionality and feature of Datameer.
What do you dislike?
- Documentation needs to be organized properly
- Row level operations are limited
- Lookup – This can be achieved using SQL query in SQL editor but not using Objects. So SCD-2 m may not be possible with the given transformation objects
- Merge operation – This can be done using SQL query but not using the objects available. So SCD-1 may not be possible with the available transformation objects
- SQL functions are limited
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We have used this Datameer in our snowflake for Google Search Console data that gets through AWS S3, used Datameer for transformations, moreover, we exposed our model to our clients to allow our users (who are mostly non-technical) to transform and filter and extract their data and reports in the required format.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are a non-SQL user then you should definitely use this tool.
Easy to integrate with Snowflake and do transformations.

Easy-To-Use, One-Stop-Shop For All Your Data Integration Needs

  • May 13, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Datameer Spectrum connects to a multitude of data sources making it a great data integration solution. Very easy GUI lets us design complex ETL pipelines without spending time on coding. Easy to learn and master and includes transformation functions for any scenario. The Spark engine auto-scales and is very efficient. Datameer keeps adding more features and data connectors in Spectrum.
What do you dislike?
They have a large training library but some videos should be updated.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
- ETLing of SaaS data to Cloud DWs (Snowflake & Redshift)
- Replication of custom databases to DW (postgres, MySQL, etc)
- Ingestion of CSV, JSON, and text files
- Data virtualization of production databases

Simplicity and consistency across the application. It just works as expected. People are surprised when I show them how easy it is to replicate a new dataset into our lake.
- We completely modernized our pipelines 6 months earlier than planned with Datameer Spectrum without the need for any additional headcount.
- Reduced production database import/export time from 5+ days to 10+ minutes and 300 TB storage is avoided with the virtualized databases.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
1. Try it out quickly, alongside a modern DW like Snowflake or AWS. Run a project for a month or two and make your own conclusions.
2. Datameer is affordable compared to other vendors like Informatica and Fivetran. Spectrum engine autoscale is included in the price so test it without worring about additional costs.
3. Embrace their ELT approach and ask support for help if you need it. Support is very responsive.
