Before Fivetran

Prior to working with Mighty Digital, this transportation startup had no clear understanding of the cost-effectiveness of various ad campaigns. Their previous ETL pipeline was built using Airflow and Python transformations to get the data into a warehouse. Looker models were used as a final layer of transformations on top. Mighty Digital’s initial investigation uncovered this architecture was prone to errors, missing data points and overall inefficient. The team did not have accurate advertising results to action on, so Mighty Digital was brought in to re-imagine and re-engineer a more stable, insightful data architecture.

Negative consequences

The existing solution was convoluted. It was multiple softwares, stitched together, to create a confusing, complex architecture that provided no insights. Its complex and inefficient data stack and ETL solution led to: 

  • Lack of data insight, reliability and availability 
  • Inefficient marketing campaigns and ad spend
  • Inability to turn data into customer retention optimizations 
  • Decreased trust in data due to errors

Fivetran solution

With Fivetran, dbt*, and our integration - Fivetran Transformations for dbt Core - Mighty Digital helped a transportation startup unlock its advertising data to find more efficiency in their budget and increase its reporting visibility. This enabled the startup to accelerate its growth in a competitive market, while satisfying its customers with delightful advertising campaigns.

“The overall process of implementing Fivetran and dbt together was very straightforward. Sometimes I wondered if these two technologies were created for one another. The ease with which you set up the source data integrations, connect pre-configured models for that source, and then integrate it all into a set of transformations is just outstanding. You can go from zero to hero in a matter of days or even hours instead of weeks or months.” — Vladyslav Hrytsenko, CTO and Senior Technology & Strategy Consultant, Mighty Digital


  • Greater visibility into the performance of their marketing campaigns with target audiences
  • Reduced data latency, enabling their clients to quickly react to behavioral changes in their customer base
  • Cut engineering costs associated with building and maintaining data pipelines, while freeing them up to focus on other projects

“Fivetran’s data models provide two primary benefits: parsed, defined and described data model as well as ease of use. The first saves a ton of time while working with the source data. You can rely on a tested and standardized open-source model and do that quickly and efficiently with Fivetran Transformations.” — Vladyslav Hrytsenko, CTO and Senior Technology & Strategy Consultant, Mighty Digital
