SnapLogic recently launched a new philanthropy program called SnapLogic Cares. The program is directly tied to our culture, which is committed to giving back to the communities through employee volunteer opportunities that give back and make a positive difference in the lives of others. SnapLogic Cares plans to sponsor regular volunteer activities for all of the U.S. office locations (San Mateo, Boulder, Boston, and New York) and soon organize activities for the international offices.
We are pleased to announce our new podcast series called SnapTalk. The series will feature short, 10-15 min. episodes on topics relevant to big data, data management and app and data integration. Our host for the series is Ravi Dharnikota, SnapLogic’s head of enterprise architecture. Each episode features a special guest in conversation with Ravi, such as SnapLogic’s chief scientist, Greg Benson.
This project grew out of the great conversations we have at Snappy Hour. Eating lunch as a group at least a couple of times a week and our weekly happy hour (called Snappy Hour) are big parts of the SnapLogic culture. And, invariably, the conversations at these gatherings range from the lightweight, such as the latest episode of Game of Thrones, to the complex, such as the future of Spark and what makes streaming data streaming. This podcast series is intended to capture the essence of those ad hoc discussions, get people thinking, and hopefully inspire additional discussions.
The first episodes are posted now and cover topics such as Spark, streaming data and Kafka. Stay tuned to this space for the next episode. The SnapTalk playlist is here – I hope you’ll subscribe, and we welcome your feedback.

There is also a great discussion about the state of enterprise software and the vital role that integration technology plays in the era of cloud computing, big data analytics, and the Internet of Things. In this series of posts I’ll feature some of Gaurav’s responses. Here he is asked about integration in the modern, composite enterprise. I encourage you to read the full discussion here.

More and more enterprise HR departments are breaking up with their legacy on-premise application providers and turning to Workday for powerful HCM delivered as a modern cloud service. In order to stay up to date, Workday must be able to keep up with employee information changes (such as legal name changes, preferred name changes, job locations, etc.), benefits, access & termination of an employee, and expense reports. But how are we able to make these changes in real time? Thankfully, SnapLogic’s Workday Integration provides the answer.
