Destinations

Learn what Destinations are and how to automatically sync your data into other applications.

DataHawk Connections is a data-syncing solution that allows you to automatically access your DataHawk data in third-party solutions called Destinations.

Connections is a turnkey and scalable way to extract data to Destinations without the need to use an API and doesn't require writing code. It goes in many ways beyond a lot of limitations that APIs have.

The way Connections work is that when you create your first Destination, we create a database that is hosted on a Snowflake cloud warehouse which we automatically maintain and manage for you.

To host data on a database in other cloud warehouses such as Google BigQuery, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Redshift, it is necessary to use an ETL solution.

ETL Solutions

ETL solutions allow the extraction, transformation, and loading of data from one source to a particular destination. In some way, DataHawk Connections is an ETL solution focused on Amazon and Walmart data, with a more extensive data coverage on these eCommerce channels.

When DataHawk doesn't cover a given Destination, generic ETL solutions can help to push data from DataHawk to your desired Destination by using your DataHawk-powered Snowflake database as a source.
