Xplenty is a data integration platform designed for non-technical users who may not have experience with SQL. The platform allows users to create data pipelines using a low-code or no-code visual interface. Xplenty’s pipelines work well for simple point-and-click connections, but users requiring more complex data transformations may be disappointed with Xplenty’s performance.
Panoply is the easiest way to sync, store, and access all your business data. The platform combines a powerful data warehouse with code-free ETL, which results in quick and easy setup and minimal upkeep. Users can query data directly in Panoply or connect their preferred analytical notebook or BI tool.

Xplenty provides native integrations for 100+ data stores and SaaS applications. Users with technical expertise can use Xplenty’s API connector to connect additional data sources and destinations.
Panoply provides built-in ETL integrations with dozens of data sources, including popular cloud APIs, databases, CRMs, advertising platforms, and file storage systems. Users can also pipe data in through partners like Stitch or Fivetran or pull in data via an S3 bucket. Once data is synced, users can query it via Panoply’s workbench or connect their favorite BI tool.
Xplenty’s pricing is calculated per connector, rather than data usage, with users paying a flat monthly rate based on the number of connectors they’re using. Potential users will need to contact the Sales team for specific pricing information as Xplenty does not list pricing on its website.
Panoply offers both monthly and annual plans starting as low as $299 per month. Its pricing model is simple and transparent, based on how many query bytes users need. There are no extra fees for adding users or the number data connectors used so cost is more predictable than with pay-by-the-hour or pay-by-the-row models.
