Data Agency i-spark Uses Dataddo for Heavyweight Integrations

By Melanie Rankin | 3 min read

In terms of data expertise, Dutch agency i-spark ranks above the pack. Focusing on eCommerce and SaaS companies, i-spark utilizes commercial tools to help businesses build a data infrastructure they can maintain long-term. Beyond data wrangling, i-spark specializes in dashboard-building and analysis, engineering reporting systems that will provide insight into an e-business’ most vital questions. 

Finding the right pipeline solution 

Initially, the i-spark team turned to Dataddo for a simple answer to a simple question. A client with a basic Google Analytics use case needed to pull their website data for reporting on a daily basis. However, since the client didn’t have the capacity to maintain a custom pipeline, i-spark looked to connect them with a service that could support a basic API call long-term. With other ETL platforms charging exorbitant prices and pushing unnecessary features, i-spark chose Dataddo for its intuitive setup and no-maintenance requirements, giving their client a tool that would serve them even without developer expertise. 

Soon, i-spark realized the deeper potential of a Dataddo cooperation.

Dataddo’s quick connectors change the game

Dataddo’s ability to create new data connectors on-demand in a matter of days provided a useful supplement to i-spark’s workflow. The agency saw an opportunity to outsource more common integration cases which could be handled by a third-party specialist. This freed up i-spark’s internal resources to optimize their clients’ reporting and ultimately saved the client time and money along the way. 


“It’s convenient for the client —  they can be up and running quicker and cheaper than if everything needed to be built from the ground up. [Dataddo] does the whole process, including the historical data. What’s particularly useful is their ability to build new connectors — that’s key.”

Outsourcing data integration to focus their skills 

Several years into ongoing cooperation, i-spark has integrated Dataddo into their client rhythm. Data integrations that they determine to be better for outsourcing are referred to Dataddo, where i-spark acts as a liaison between Dataddo and their client to gather details like syncing frequency and depth of historical data. With Dataddo managing the API endpoints, i-spark is better able to support their clients in building sustainable data systems which will answer their biggest business questions.
