Announcing 1-minute syncs: a faster way to insights

Unlock faster time to insights for your transactional and analytical use cases today.
September 18, 2023

Having your data when you need it is just as important as having it where you need it. 

That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ve enabled a 1-minute sync option across all standard connectors where the API limit allows. Available to customers on our Enterprise and higher plans, 1-minute syncs allow real-time, low-latency data movement for all of your transactional and analytical use cases.

As of today, you can add a new connector with a 1-minute sync frequency or change an existing connector to a 1-minute sync frequency in the Fivetran UI. This change allows greater customization of sync frequencies, from one minute to one day, ensuring optimization and control over your compute and storage resources.

Why 1-minute syncs? Why now?

Fivetran has allowed those on our higher-tiered plans to perform syncs at up to a 5-minute sync frequency for a few years; however, recent product improvements around throughput and latency have allowed us to drop our sync frequency to 1-minute. With the ever-increasing need for faster syncs and real-time data movement, there’s no better time to give our customers this great new capability. 

After trialing 1-minute sync frequencies with our high-volume agent connectors over the past few months, we’ve now expanded the functionality to all of our standard connectors except those that frequently hit their API limits (found here). This new functionality helps our customers meet their needs for a variety of use cases such as regulatory compliance and downtime reduction.

Why leverage 1-minute syncs

Faster sync frequencies enable faster time to insights. Use cases typically fall into three main categories:

Real-time reporting

Regulatory compliance: Stay in compliance with government and industry-specific regulations when you enable 1-minute syncs. Increasing your sync frequency can ensure you never miss a required SLA for your reporting needs.

Inventory management: Many supply chain departments are responsible for inventory deliveries, stocking and replenishment. With 1-minute syncs, you can ensure you’re always armed with the latest information around your inventory.

Monitoring & alerting

Equipment maintenance: Have the latest insight into equipment across your factories, warehouses or fleet in a matter of seconds. 1-minute syncs help alert you when maintenance is needed or equipment has gone offline. Downtime reduction can save you money and ensure your equipment is always functioning at full capacity.

Personalized customer experience: Looking to capture your customers’ attention in the moment they’re shopping? Deliver a personalized customer experience and real-time suggestions to increase average customer spend with 1-minute syncs.

Predictive modeling

Forecasting: 1-minute syncs can ensure that your forecasts are always accurate and remain valuable to all business stakeholders. Build out predictive models to forecast sales, inventory and financials.

Dynamic pricing: Adjust your prices, discounts and inventory in real-time based on inventory levels and current supply and demand. With 1-minute syncs, you can identify the need for change and update your pricing strategy on the fly to improve sales.

Large language models (LLM): Struggling to keep up with every changing demand and interaction with your LLMs? Constantly feed them new data in real-time thanks to 1-minute syncs. This will enable your company to harness the power of natural language processing and continuously update the knowledge bank of your LLMs.

Considerations & limitations

While we’re excited to see the innovation enabled by 1-minute syncs and would love to hear how you’re utilizing them, there are some quick considerations:

  • 1-minute sync is only available to customers on Enterprise or higher plan tiers
  • Not supported for Lite connectors or connectors that frequently hit their API limits, found here
  • Ensure your use case accounts for heightened compute costs in your warehouse or data lake due to more frequent syncs

1-minute syncs to power your real-time data movement

Ready, set — sync! If you’re on our Enterprise or higher plans, you can enable 1-minute syncs right now in the Fivetran UI. If you’re interested in a 1-minute sync frequency, but you’re on our Standard plan or below — reach out to our team to learn your options to upgrade

We’re excited for the innovative ways our customers will leverage this sync-speed boost to achieve their transactional and analytical objectives.
