It’s Big Data Week here in Silicon Valley with data experts from around the globe convening at Strata+Hadoop World San Jose for a packed week of keynotes, education, networking and more - and SnapLogic was front-and-center for all the action.
SnapLogic stopped by theCUBE, the popular video-interview show that live-streams from top tech events, and joined hosts Jeff Frick and George Gilbert for a spirited and wide-ranging discussion of all things Big Data.
First up was SnapLogic CEO Gaurav Dhillon, who discussed SnapLogic’s record-growth year in 2016, the acceleration of Big Data moving to the cloud, SnapLogic’s strong momentum working with AWS Redshift and Microsoft Azure platforms, the emerging applications and benefits of ML and AI, customers increasingly ditching legacy technology in favor of modern, cloud-first, self-service solutions, and more. You can watch Gaurav’s full video below, and here:
Next up was SnapLogic Chief Enterprise Architect Ravi Dharnikota, together with our customer, Katharine Matsumoto, Data Scientist at eero. A fast-growing Silicon Valley startup, eero makes a smart wireless networking system that intelligently routes data traffic on your wireless network in a way that reduces buffering and gets rid of dead zones in your home. Katharine leads a small data and analytics team and discussed how, with SnapLogic’s self-service cloud integration platform, she’s able to easily connect a myriad of ever-growing apps and systems and make important data accessible to as many as 15 different line-of-business teams, thereby empowering business users and enabling faster business outcomes. The pair also discussed ML and IoT integration which is helping eero consistently deliver an increasingly smart and powerful product to customers.

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.
The SnapLogic big data team was at the Spark Summit last week in San Francisco. Around 2,500 people attended this year and featured several high profile speakers such as Matei Zaharia the creator of Spark, Jeff Dean of Google, Andrew Ng of Baidu, and representatives from influential tech companies like Amazon, Microsoft, and Intel.
The SnapLogic team is going to London! Our team of hybrid cloud and big data integration experts will be in town this week for Strata + Hadoop World EU to talk about big data integration, moving to a data lake and how to quickly ingest, prepare and deliver big data in Hadoop or Spark environments, regardless of the data’s velocity, variety and volume.
The SnapLogic team is charging full steam ahead this month talking big data and what it means for the future of enterprise IT, with some recent and upcoming speaking opportunities led by our fearless leader, Gaurav Dhillon. This week Gaurav spoke on a panel at Andreessen Horowitz a16z Tech Summit SF, titled “Own Your Data, Don’t Be Owned By It”. Joined by leaders from Cazena, Databricks and Mixpanel, the summit examined technologies that are changing the future of business and Gaurav’s panel specifically addressed big data, and if CIOs and CMOs are using it or just talking about it. Gaurav will also be speaking at the a16z Tech Summit in London next week. He was also at the Variety Big Data Summit on a panel with executives from Microsoft and Google. Here’s a picture of the panel from Twitter.
We’re also sending a team to a few upcoming events including the CDM Media Big Data Summit, an event in Phoenix next week for C-level executives involved in data storage, management and analysis to discuss how companies can effectively manage, protect and leverage the growing amounts of data in the enterprise.
SnapLogic specifically will be sponsoring the Mobile Data Quality Thought Leadership portion of the Summit. Data quality has long been one of the most challenging issues that IT organizations and the enterprises that are home to them have had to deal with. Everyone knows that these data quality issues exist, but the cost and complication of addressing them has pushed them to the back burner. With a focus on best practices, the event will allow attendees to explore strategies and technologies surrounding real-time data processing, data protection and privacy, meeting industry regulations and compliance, and data storage.
And finally, catch us in December for the Gartner Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit in Las Vegas. We enjoy going to this event every year to talk to attendees about modern integration challenges and how, as mobile, cloud and IoT transform the enterprise, application and data integration strategies must evolve to seize new opportunities. These strategies usually include the need for a hybrid integration platform, that is able to handle streaming, event-based application integration and real-time and batch-oriented data integration. We’ll be talking about SnapLogic’s Elastic Integration Platform as a service (iPaaS) of course.
