Why Choose Striim vs. Attunity (Qlik Replicate)?

  • Modern, cloud-scale architecture
  • Under 2 seconds end-to-end latency
  • Transform, enrich, and analyze your data on the fly

Fortune 500 companies power their cloud initiatives with Striim

Companies Choose Striim for Scalable, Real-Time Replication

Our legacy analytics platform used to take an hour per customer data load and weeks for each new deployment. With Striim we are able to transfer operational data to Snowflake in near realtime.

CTO at Inspyrus

We chose Striim as it provides continuous access to the data in our MySQL database without impacting its performance, and without taking the data out of the Google Cloud environment.

Striim vs. Qlik Replicate: Feature Comparison

Qlik replicate vs Striim

Cloud-Scale Architecture

Striim scales horizontally on in-memory compute with high availability and failover for maximum uptime. 

Qlik Replicate is a single-node solution. Doesn’t scale horizontally. Must be deployed as a virtual machine. Can deploy in a server cluster to run separate data pipelines but a single pipeline can’t scale across nodes.



Real-time Transformations + Analysis

Striim users can build detailed in-flight transformations, data masking, filtering logic using high-speed SQL queries. Striim scales horizontally with in-memory compute for high performance transformations.

Qlik Replicate supports a limited set of pre-defined transformations and basic filters. Qlik doesn’t scale on in-memory compute, therefore scalable in-flight transformations and data processing/analysis aren’t possible.



Real-Time Data Visualization Dashboards

Striim offers real-time dashboards visualizing end-to-end data delivery from source to target. Striim matches source and target transactions and alerts users to missing transactions, making it easy to catch issues as they happen. 

Striim offers data delivery SLAs and customers see end-to-end latency under 2 seconds.

Qlik Replicate provides a graphical overview of replication tasks, but only provides the table name, number of records loaded, and time when error occurred. This makes it difficult to debug data lag and data loss scenarios.



Real-Time Data Enrichment

Striim supports data enrichment and normalization using in-memory key-value stores for historic data. This allows you to enrich raw, real-time data with historical aggregates and lookup data. 

Qlik Replicate doesn’t support data enrichment.



Cloud Partnerships

Striim’s cloud partners include Google, Microsoft, AWS and Snowflake. Striim partners closely with cloud vendors to support a full breadth of endpoints for a variety of strategic use cases. Striim also supports deployment via metered and SaaS marketplace offerings to take advantage of cloud scalability.

Qlik partners with cloud vendors including Google, Microsoft, and Snowflake, but its solution is not built to take advantage of the scalability of the cloud. Offers limited technical integration with cloud partners.



Custom Alerts

Striim allows custom alerts on data delivery SLAs, data loss, and user-defined rules.

Qlik Replicate allows configuration of a limited set of predefined alerts.

Data Targets: APIs



High-Performance, E1P CDC

Striim supports high-performance, E1P log-based CDC for many popular databases including: Oracle, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MySQL, HPE Nonstop, and SQL Server.

Qlik Replicate also offers high-performance CDC from popular databases.



Striim offers a modern data platform that's both powerful and easy to use

Create data flows with a few clicks

Select from hundreds of templates to simplify building your data flows. A step-by-step wizard will lead you through the process of connecting to your source and target to create a data flow application. You can also create custom data flows from scratch.

Process your data with real-time SQL queries

Your data flow defines how to collect, process, and deliver data. The simplest data flow just has a source, a stream, and a target. In many cases you will need to perform some processing on your data. Striim enables you to set up continuous SQL queries optimized for streaming, real-time data.

Monitor your data flow in real-time

Our built-in dashboards and monitoring enable you to see the state of your data flows in real-time and easily identify any bottlenecks. Striim can also validate that your data has been delivered and provide visibility into the end-to-end lag. This level of visibility is essential for mission-critical systems that may have SLAs regarding how current the data is.

You can also drill down on any of the components in a data flow to see detailed statistics that include read/write rate, lag, latency, cpu usage and many other metrics. This detailed information can help identify any bottlenecks, and aids in tuning data flows for maximum performance and minimal latency.

Set alerts and create workflows to take corrective action

Striim allows you to define SQL-based custom alerts so you can stay informed about the status and performance of your data flows.

In the case of errors, or failures, you can also automate workflows to perform corrective actions. By tapping into error or status streams you can trigger compensating data flows to start, or perform other actions to remediate problems.
