Dataddo, a SaaS startup that provides an automated, no-code data integration platform, today announced the launch of its free plan, the first-ever free data integration plan with no mining limit. It’s a no-investment way for any professional, regardless of technical skill, to access and start working with data from disparate sources. The plan comes in response to corporate cultural barriers that hinder the adoption of data initiatives within organizations across all industries, such as low data literacy
Over the past five years or more, the vast majority of large enterprises across all industries have invested in data initiatives, with the percentage now reaching 97%. Yet only 26.5% of these companies claim to be truly data-driven.
A growing body of evidence suggests that the main reason for this gap is company culture, which means both lack of leadership buy-in to initiatives and lack of employee confidence in data skills. . In a recent Accenture survey of 9,000 employees at companies across all industries, nearly three-quarters of respondents (74%) said they felt “overwhelmed or unhappy when working with data.” This is critical because, as Gartner states, “the real drivers of [data-driven culture] are the people.
Dataddo’s free plan aims to help businesses overcome these hurdles by making it easier for them to share data and familiarize employees with visualization tools before investing in paid tools. In large enterprises, the plan can also be used to test the validity of any data model on a small scale before fully deploying it in a data warehouse. The plan is the first free data integration plan in the market that does not limit mining limits and can be used for an unlimited time.
Under the plan, subscribers can access ten of Dataddo’s more than 200 connectors and automate the synchronization of any volume of marketing, sales, financial and other data in the cloud with up to three dashboard applications and/or or Google Sheets per week. The company offers a growing library of free templates for popular dashboard apps, allowing professionals of any data skill level to start analyzing right away.
“The Dataddo platform is designed for non-technical business professionals. But it’s also incredibly friendly for engineers, as it lets them leverage low-level platform operations through an API if they need to.says Petr Nemeth, founder and CEO of Dataddo.
The platform’s engineering layer incorporates proprietary anomaly detection technology and automatic format harmonization that make unstructured data dashboards ready for business teams and easier to manipulate for engineers in downstream systems. For more advanced insights, users can easily merge datasets from multiple systems directly in the Dataddo app before exporting them to a dashboard.

Dataddo is launching its free plan alongside the rollout of reverse ETL functionality, as well as a headless data integration product, which allows businesses to build their own data products on top of the unified Dataddo API. These are additions to the platform’s existing ETL, ELT, and database replication functionality.
“Once companies outgrow our free plan, there’s no limit to how far they can expand the integration. Whether they are just starting to analyze data in Google Sheets or ready to integrate our API into their own application, Dataddo supports companies at every stage of data maturitycontinues Németh.
Besides the free plan and headless data integration, Dataddo offers two scalable paid plans: Data to Dashboards and Data Anywhere. The former is a full-fledged version of the Free plan; it allows subscribers to sync data with more than three visualization tools, and unlocks more platform features and direct support. The latter further allows subscribers to send data to warehouses, between warehouses and from warehouses to applications (reverse ETL). Custom rate plans are available upon request.
The platform is SOC 2 Type II certified and compliant with all major data privacy laws globally, including ISO 27001, GDPR for Europe, CCPA and HIPAA for the US, LGPD for Brazil, POPIA for South Africa, and more.
