Are you looking for an easy and quick way to migrate data from Firebase to Google Bigquery? Use the cloud data pipeline: Daton for effective data transfer. 

In the competitive digital landscape that we live in, it has become imperative that eCommerce businesses of all sizes aspire to grow and stay profitable have to look into their data deeply and leverage this for growth. Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) has increasingly become a popular solution for businesses that don’t want to bear costs to build their backend infrastructure. Almost 60% of the world’s internet traffic is on mobile, generating massive revenues from their Mobile Apps and websites. Development teams across companies prefer using Google’s Firebase to develop advanced Mobile Apps quickly and easily. Apps Made using Firebase also give companies the ability to track their users to a greater extent and work towards proving a more personalized user engagement, which helps increase CLTV. 

Modern eCommerce businesses use different apps to run all the verticals with minimum manual labour. You can get a comprehensive picture of the business by consolidating data generated in all these apps and make informed decisions. Manual data integration takes a considerable amount of time and effort. So, data Savvy businesses take the help of a cloud data pipeline like Daton to automate data migration. Daton is a highly automated data pipeline that integrates data from all these channels into a cloud data warehouse like Amazon Redshift.

Why integrate Firebase to Google Bigquery? 

Firebase with Google Analytics generates essential data like Traffic, User Behaviour, Clicks, Bounce Rates, Time on Site, Traffic Source, Audience Demography, Browsing Device, Crash Analytics, and much more. eCommerce companies that sell globally often have separate views or dashboard for each country-specific mobile application. So, they have several marketing channels with varying demographics for each country – driving traffic to a separate website & mobile app. Firebase captures the flow of traffic from different channels into a mobile application. But Firebase fails to accurately capture the sales data and the data from marketing tools like target audience and impressions. The data from the other data sources and Firebase need to be consolidated to understand the sales funnel and give accurate attributions to the marketing activities. Manual data consolidation is a difficult task if done manually. Hence use Daton to replicate data from Firebase to Google Bigquery quickly without needing coding. 

Firebase Overview 

One of the leading positions in the BaaS market is held by Google’s product, Firebase. It allows users to eliminate the need in managing backend databases and to obtain corresponding hardware. Firebase supports Android, iOS, Web, and Unity. It has three categories of services divided into app building, quality assurance, and instruments for business growth. Firebase Realtime Database is NoSQL cloud storage connected with the application to provide real-time access to the data across different platforms. One of the advantages is that the database can work offline, caching the data in device memory, and after reconnecting to the internet, synchronizing it. Its tools work together so that development teams can improve mobile app performance and obtain useful insights. Before releasing a new feature, you can test it on a specific user base and monitor performance. 

Google Bigquery Overview  

Google BigQuery is the first serverless data warehouse service which was available in the market. A database administrator architects the schema and optimize the partitions for performance and cost in a Google BigQuery environment. This cloud service automatically scales to fulfil any demands of a query. Google BigQuery service offers an excellent pricing model based on the amount of data processed by incoming queries, not on the storage or the compute capacity for processing queries. The best part about using Google BigQuery is that you can instantly load data to the service as soon as you start using it. The primary requirements are a mechanism to load data into the data warehouse and the ability to write SQL queries.
