Change data capture (CDC) is a crucial, but also tremendously underappreciated, feature that forms the backbone of modern ETL workloads. Without knowing which data has changed since you last accessed it, you’d be forced to extract all the data from a source table or database each time that you perform data integration—which would be a tremendously inefficient process. (For more information, check out our article on when to use change data capture.)

It’s no surprise that users are interested in performing change data capture with tools like Integrate.io. A cloud-based ETL platform for database sources, Integrate.io saves countless developer hours with its automated, scalable, and easy to sync integration for Amazon Redshift.

Using Change Data Capture 

When it comes to using change data capture, what needs to be first understood is that CDC requires an application that reads, transforms, and imports streaming data for a production database to a data warehouse. 

While most tools such as MySQL, Ruby, or Python require users to build their own CDC application to move data, with Integrate.io, this tedious process is no longer needed. Check out more about how Integrate.io simplifies CDC replication below.
