New Podcast Series: SnapTalk

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.

Demonstration: Real-Time Workday Integration in Action

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.

This video walks through how you can achieve a real-time integration with Workday using the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform to connect to different systems. In this case, you are leveraging Workday Business process to achieve these real-time integrations to other systems.
