We know you don’t wanna keep your data scientists and business analysts waiting to get critical business insights. As the most direct approach, you can go straight for the CSV files exporting if this is a one-time thing. Or, hunt for a no-code tool that fully automates & manages data integration for you while you focus on your core objectives.

Well, look no further. With this article, get a step-by-step guide to connecting HubSpot to Databricks effectively and quickly, delivering data to your marketing team. 

Replicate Data from HubSpot to Databricks Using CSV

To start replicating data from Hubspot to Databricks, firstly, you need to export data as CSV files from Hubspot, then import the CSV files into Databricks and modify your data according to the needs.

  • Step 1: Suppose you want to export your Contacts data from HubSpot. In such a scenario, navigate to Contacts > List. Now select the list you want to export and click Export. An export window will appear. You can select the properties you want to export and click Next. You can select the File format as CSV in the dropdown menu. Now click Export, and you will receive an email based on the email id you used to log in to your HubSpot account.

You can download by selecting Download your export file by navigating to your mail inbox.

  • Step 2:  In the Databricks UI, you must click on Data by navigating through the Sidebar menu. Click on Create Table, after you browse your files from the local computer, or simply drag your CSV files into the drop zone and upload them. Your path will look something like this: /FileStore/tables/<fileName>-<integer>.<fileType>.  After uploading, your data can be simply viewed by clicking the Create Table with UI button.

  • Step 3: You can modify and read the CSV data after you have uploaded the data in a table in Databricks.
    • Click on Preview Table after selecting a Cluster. You can now read your CSV data in Databricks.
    • In Databricks, the data types are string by default. You can change the data type to the appropriate one from a drop-down list.
    • The data can be easily modified with the help of the left navigation bar. The left navigation bar has the following options; First Row Header, Multi-line, Table Name, File Type, and Column Delimiter 
    • Click on Create Table, once all the above parameters are configured.
    • The CSV files can be read easily from the cluster where you have uploaded that file.

This 3-step process using CSV files is a great way to effectively replicate data from HubSpot to Databricks. It is optimal for the following scenarios:

  • One-Time Data Replication: Your marketing team needs the HubSpot data only once in a long time. 
  • No Data Transformation Required: This method is ideal if there is a negligible need for data transformation and your data is standardized.

Automate the Data Replication process using a No-Code Tool

In the following scenarios, using CSV files might be cumbersome and not a wise choice:

  • Frequent changes at Source Data: You will need to perform the entire process frequently to access updated data at your destination to achieve two-way sync.
  • Time Consuming: If you’re exporting your data regularly, then the CSV method might not be a good fit since it takes time to replicate data using CSV files. 

You can use automated pipelines to avoid such challenges. Here are the following benefits:

  • Automated pipelines allow you to focus on core engineering objectives while your business teams can directly work on reporting without any delays or data dependency on you.
  • Automated pipelines provide a beginner-friendly UI that saves the engineering teams’ bandwidth from tedious data preparation tasks.
