Why integrate SurveyMonkey to BigQuery?

But if you’re looking to go beyond Surveymonkey’s analytics, and uncover more insights then integrating your SurveyMonkey data into BigQuery is the right approach. With your SurveyMonkey data streamlined with a high-performance cloud warehouse like BigQuery, you can run anything from complex ad-hoc queries to standard reporting, and easily combine SurveyMonkey’s data with other data sources to take your analysis further and help you grow your business by making better business decisions.

SurveyMonkey Overview 

SurveyMonkey is the world’s leading cloud-based survey software to create and run professional online surveys. It helps create surveys, collect responses and analyze survey results. SurveyMonkey presents all the tools necessary for you to create strong, professional surveys easily. With SurveyMonkey, users can email surveys to respondents and post them on their websites and social media profiles to increase the response rate. Users can also run customer satisfaction surveys to get feedback on products and services.

BigQuery Overview 

Google BigQuery is a serverless data warehousing platform where you can query and process vast amounts of data. It is fully managed and performs storage optimization on existing data sets by detecting usage patterns and modifying data structures for better results. The best part about it is that one can run multiple queries in a matter of seconds even if the datasets are relatively large in size. BigQuery is a powerful tool for business intelligence and it offers analytics capabilities to organizations of all sizes.

How to replicate SurveyMonkey to BigQuery?

Here’s an overview of the two approaches you can use to replicate SurveyMonkey 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 to be executed one after the other. You need to extract data using SurveyMonkey APIs & then connect it properly with the BigQuery data warehouse. This whole process to build a custom data pipeline is cumbersome.
