Zapier is great for moving small bits of data from one place to another when a triggering event occurs. Parabola focuses on what happens during transit, allowing you to create custom flows that reformat, group, filter, or enrich your data while it moves from place to place.
Parabola works with a batch model, so rather than moving a single row when an event occurs, Parabola can move up to millions of rows at a time, on a schedule. While Zapier’s functionality is limited to pieces of the data set, Parabola supports table-based operations like aggregation, growth rates, and math. Zapier and Parabola can work well together, playing off of each other’s strengths to create robust data solutions.
