Blendo, an ETL as a service platform that helps companies integrate and load data seamlessly from multiple SaaS tools into their data warehouse, announced today that it has joined the Confluent Partner Program to expand ETL as a service solution and help drive the adoption and implementation of Apache KafkaTM.
Nowadays organizations are being transformed rapidly by the utilization of data that increase and vary day by day. Companies need to access multiple sparse data sources to create value and insights for their business and customers, and they implement sophisticated data pipeline systems to build their data analytics infrastructure.
Blendo helps companies get their data from anywhere into their data warehouse, and reduces the time of building full data pipelines from months to minutes.
“At Blendo, we offer an ETL-as-a-service on steroids. By joining the Confluent Partner Program, Blendo can better serve its customers, do the heavy-lifting, so they can connect the dots, combine data from different sources and answer questions about their business that span across varied data sources,” said Blendo CEO and co-founder Kostas Pardalis.
