Connect to Fivetran

Fivetran automated data integration adapts as schemas and APIs change, ensuring reliable data access and simplified analysis with ready-to-query schemas.

You can integrate your Databricks SQL warehouses (formerly Databricks SQL endpoints) and Databricks clusters with Fivetran. The Fivetran integration with Databricks helps you centralize data from disparate data sources into Delta Lake.
