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, SaaS 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.

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).
SnapLogic CTO James Markarian recently appeared as a guest on DisrupTV, a weekly live-interview web-series produced by analyst firm Constellation Research and hosted by R “Ray” Wang and Vala Afshar. The trio discussed a variety of enterprise topics including modern data management, data lake strategy considerations and big data analytics.
SnapLogic was in New York this week for Strata + Hadoop World NYC, and our CTO James Markarian took the opportunity to sit down with Dave Vellante and George Gilbert, hosts of theCUBE, for a wide-ranging discussion on the shifting big data landscape.
Another release is in the books – today we announced the Summer 2016 SnapLogic platform update, along with several additions and improvements to our Snap library. The release brings additions for big data integration, self-service integration, and enterprise governance and control.
As our VP Engineering Vaikom Krishnan put it:
“SnapLogic continues to break down the barriers between data and application integration in the enterprise with a converged platform that is built for self-service. The Summer 2016 release further enhances our Snap library and resources for Snap developers to help support our vision of ‘anything, anytime, anywhere’ integration.”
Highlights of this “Snappy” release include:
New Snaps for Apache Hive and Teradata
Major updates to Snaps for Anaplan and Tableau
Enhancements to the Mapper Snap that make it faster and simpler to search, filter and map the entries in a complex schema tree
User-defined pipeline parameters can now be logged and retained with runtime history in order for administrators to audit API usage and quickly debug pipeline performance issues
A new, seamless way to auto-shard documents across all nodes in a SnapLogic data processing Snaplex, leveraging the power of all nodes and boosting data integration performance
Users can now limit invocation of triggered tasks to one instance at a time for more granular control and to avoid overloading resources.
We’re also excited for the launch of the new Snap developer site. It’s easy to use, mobile-friendly and full of practical guidance for our customers and partners building and maintaining their own Snaps.
Data visualization is a hot topic, but is only useful when the most up-to-date data is made available. This SnapLogic Live session features Tableau Integration for customers seeking rapid integration to connect Tableau with other cloud and on-premises applications and data sources.
