The key differences between Stitch, Jitterbit, and Xplenty:

  1. Customer support: Stitch doesn't provide free phone/voice/video chat support on its Standard plan. Jitterbit has different customer service response times that depend on the pricing plan. Xplenty offers free customer support and fast response times for all users.
  2. Price: Xplenty charges by the connector and not by the volume of data, which could make it the most affordable option. Jitterbit could cost $90,000 a year for some users, according to one source. (See Pricing section below for more information). Stitch approaches pricing differently depending the plan level.
  3. Scalability: All three platforms scale as your business does. Stitch, however, charges more money as this happens. 
  4. Skill level: Xplenty requires no code whatsoever, making it a good option for businesses without a data engineer. 
  5. Reviews: All three platforms have received positive reviews from users on the website G2.

The average business pulls data from 400 different locations, which makes it tricky to generate valuable data insights. Data-driven organizations use an Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) platform to pull all this information into a data lake or warehouse for deeper analysis. However, many businesses lack the technical skills (like coding) to facilitate this process. 

The three tools in this review make ETL workflows easier. Stitch, Jitterbit, and Xplenty improve data management for users who don't want to maintain a data pipeline. But which tool is the best one for your business?

Stitch vs. Jitterbit vs. Xplenty Overview

Stitch Overview

Stitch is a cloud-based ETL platform that moves data from various SaaS apps and databases (Salesforce, Facebook Ads, MongoDB, etc.) into data lakes and warehouses (Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery, Snowflake, etc.). Users then analyze data with BI tools. Stitch's managed data pipeline streamlines ETL with automated monitoring, API maintenance, and replication configuration that delegates data to analysts. Launched in 2016, Stitch became part of Talend (an open-source data integration tool) in 2018.

Jitterbit Overview

Jitterbit is an API integration tool that serves various data integration functions. Though not primarily an ETL tool (Jitterbit serves as an iPaaS and API management platform too), it uses "parallel processing algorithms" that transfer large data sets to data warehouses and relational database systems. Jitterbit comes with prebuilt transformations and native connectors that simplify data pipelines.

Pricing

Stitch

Stitch prices scale depending on the size of the company.

  • Standard plans range from $100 to $1,250 per month.
  • Stitch prices Enterprise plans individually. 
  • No free phone/voice/video chat support for users on the Standard plan.

Jitterbit

Jitterbit doesn't publish prices online, so it's hard to make a comparison. However, one Reddit user claims Jitterbit quoted $90,000 a year, which would work out significantly more expensive than either Xplenty or Stitch.

What we know for sure about Jitterbit:

  • There are three pricing tiers: Standard, Professional, and Enterprise.
  • All users receive free customer support, but there are different response levels for different tiers. (A 48-hour minimum response time for Standard customers; a 6-hour minimum and 24-hour emergency hotline for Enterprise customers).
  • NOTE: Jitterbit is an all-in-one API integration tool that handles other processes in addition to ETL. Users pay for all these features, regardless of tier, whether they need them or not). 

Xplenty

Xplenty charges by the connector instead of volume. 

  • Flat rate depending on the required number of connectors.
  • No extra costs for large data sets.
  • Price stays the same every month. 
  • Telephone, video, and email support free for all users.
