How to replicate Amazon Redshift to BigQuery?

Here are two approaches you can use to replicate Amazon Redshift data to BigQuery. This will allow you to evaluate the pros and cons of both and choose the one that best suits your requirement.

Build your own data pipeline 

This process needs a lot of experience and consumes a lot of time and manpower. The chances of errors are more due to multiple integrated steps one after the other. You need to extract data using Amazon Redshift APIs & then connect it properly with the BigQuery data warehouse. This whole process to build a custom data pipeline requires regular intervention that makes it cumbersome.
