Are you looking for a quicker way to transfer data from Dropbox to Amazon Redshift? Here is an easy solution for this data migration process using a cloud data pipeline: Daton.  

eCommerce companies need to utilize their data to stay ahead of increasing competition and make data-driven business decisions. The massive volumes of data require fast and secured storage. The cost to build and maintain a scalable, fast and secure physical storage solution is usually too steep. So, cloud storage solutions come into play, as they provide all this at virtually no upfront cost and pay-as-you-go plans, thus becoming go-to solutions for startups and SMBs.  

Modern-day businesses use multiple apps for handling various processes. These data needs to be consolidated to get a complete sense of the business. The problem arises with separate data silos, making it more difficult and time-consuming to analyze the data. Thus companies are struggling to make sense of all the data being generated. As a result, Online retailers are reducing the time & effort of reporting and analyzing their multiple data silos by integrating these massive amounts of data present in different sheets and CSV files in Dropbox to data warehouses like Amazon Redshift. 

Why integrate Dropbox to Amazon Redshift? 

Modern-day companies use cloud storage solutions like Dropbox to store their data; it makes collaboration easy, especially when multiple teams work in several offices across different countries. The data is automatically backed up by secure servers, reducing data theft and loss which is not the case for storage in physical drives. Various apps create separate silos for inventory, customer feedback, customer behaviour and billing data. Consolidating all these together in a unified place simplifies data analysis and reporting. This process takes a lot of time to execute manually, and the reports are very accurate. Thus companies lose out on potential revenue.   

So, top companies use a cloud data pipeline like Daton to replicate data from Dropbox to Amazon Redshift. It is a highly automated data pipeline that easily integrates with multiple sources and popular data warehouses.
