PlaidCloud gives you the ability to easily include an unlimited number of sources and handle low-quality data. It can also use fuzzy matching to help make associations between data sets with no common key.
PlaidCloud has native import and export capabilities for Microsoft Excel, delimited files, HDF5 files, JSON files, XML files, SAS7BDAT SAS files, and HTML scrapped web data. It even has native Quandl support to quickly pull in public data like currency rates or other public economic information.
