SnapLogic was front-and-center at AWS re:Invent last week in Las Vegas, with our team busier than ever meeting with customers and prospects, showcasing our solutions at the booth, and networking into the evening with event-goers interested in all things Cloud, AWS and SnapLogic.
Ravi Dharnikota, SnapLogic’s Head of Enterprise Architecture and Big Data Practice, took time out to stop by and visit with John Furrier, co-founder of the live video interview show theCUBE. Ravi was joined by Matt Glickman, VP of Products with our partner Snowflake Computing, for a wide-ranging discussion on the changing customer requirements for effective data integration, warehousing and analytics in the cloud.
The roundtable all agreed — organizations need fast and easy access to all data, no matter the source, format or location — and legacy solutions built for a bygone era simply aren’t cutting it. Enter SnapLogic and Snowflake, each with a modern solution designed from the ground-up to be cloud-first, self-service, fully scalable and capable of handling all data. Customers using these solutions together — like Kraft Group, owners of the New England Patriots and Gillette Stadium — enjoy dramatic acceleration in time-to-value at a fraction of the cost by eliminating manual configuration, coding and tuning while bringing together diverse data and taking full advantage of the flexibility and scalability of the cloud.
To make it even easier for customers, SnapLogic and Snowflake recently announced tighter technology integration and joint go-to-market programs to help organizations harness all data for new insights, smarter decisions and better business outcomes.

This week, the SnapLogic team will be supporting one of our partners, Amazon Web Services, in Las Vegas for the annual AWS re:Invent conference. This gathering of the global AWS community will feature hands-on labs and bootcamps and cover topics such as infrastructure maintenance, and improving developer productivity, network security and application performance.

Fall is the time to move your clocks back, get a pumpkin latte and slow down with the approaching cold weather. But not for SnapLogic! We continue to deliver with full force. After our Summer 2016 release, which was feature-packed, the Fall 2016 release takes the SnapLogic platform to a whole new level by extending support for Teradata, introducing new Snap Packs for Snowflake and Azure Data Lake Store, adding more capabilities to Spark mode, and delivering several enhancements for security, performance and governance. As our VP of engineering, Vaikom Krishnan, aptly said, “We continue to make it easier and faster for organizations to connect any and all data sources – whether on premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid environments.”

We have a slight problem at SnapLogic. While we spend a vanishingly small percent of the day watching adorable cat videos on the Internet, it seems our CEO always shows up behind our desks while doing so. If only we knew when our CEO was nearby and could get an alert when he was.

What is Apache Hive? Hive provides a mechanism to query, create and manage large datasets that are stored on Hadoop, using SQL like statements. It also enables adding a structure to existing data that resides on HDFS. In this post I’ll describe a practical approach on how to ingest data into Hive, with the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform, without the need to write code.

Today’s post comes from Joseph A. di Paolantonio, an industry expert working at the convergence of IoT with data management and analytics at DataArchon.com and the Boulder BI Brain Trust. Leveraging a career that started with renewable energy research in graduate school and industry, developing risk assessment models and algorithms for aerospace systems, and managing teams for enterprise data warehousing, BI and data science, Joseph is defining sensor analytics ecosystems to bring value from the IoT.
What’s IOT All About
We have been asking what the IoT is all about for a very long time. Since Kevin Ashton first coined the phrase in 1999, and perhaps even since Nikola Tesla first played with a remote control boat in 1898. For many, the simple act of connecting a device, not a computer, not a router, to the Internet is enough. But even if everything around us, in work, at home, for business, for play, was connected..Does this make the Internet of Things? Does this fulfill much of the hype or any of the stories surrounding the IoT? Not at all.

Last week we attended Workday Rising in Chicago where we talked to attendees about integrating Workday with the rest of their IT ecosystems. The real stars of the show, however, were our customers from Vassar College who gave a brief presentation at our booth to discuss their journey from finding the need for an integration vendor, to assessing different platforms, to ultimately choosing SnapLogic’s elastic integration platform as a service (iPaaS).
