Planview, the leading provider of Work and Resource Management (WRM) solutions, has announced that it has standardized on the SnapLogic platform to help their global customers integrate Planview’s WRM solutions with any other application in their ecosystems, whether in the cloud or on-premises.
It’s always a treat to be able to share our customers’ inspiring success stories. MWD Advisors, a UK-based industry research and advisory services firm, recently spent time with our customer, global pharmaceuticals giant AstraZeneca. MWD published the results of that interview to their research subscribers in a report titled “AstraZeneca supports strategic cloud shift with ‘citizen integrator’ platform” (reprint provided here).
AstraZeneca started their journey with SnapLogic as part of an IT initiative to make their business process infrastructure more agile, and to incorporate cloud-based platforms and applications. They wanted to efficiently integrate SaaS systems and on-premises platforms without investing in a large, specialized integration team.
SnapLogic’s Vice President of Engineering Vaikom Krishnan recently outlined the 10 New Requirements for Modern Data Integration. Here is a presentation that summarizes these requirements.
Last week we hosted a webinar with industry analyst, thought leader and author David Linthicum that focused how the enterprise problem domains are changing and how data integration technology must change with it. The presentation boiled this down to 5 critical and lesser known data integration requirements, how to understand them, and how to pick the right approaches and technology to solve the problems.
According to David, the 5 most critical things to understand about modern data integration are:
- Workloads and data are likely to be distributed across traditional systems, private clouds, and public clouds.
- Data is growing quickly, with big data and data lakes common within most enterprises.
- Data must be delivered in real-time, on-demand, in support of most modern applications and business processes.
- Security is now systemic, it can no longer be an after thought.
- DevOps is the new standard for building and deploying applications and data store.
After a brief hiatus, we’re kicking off our Summer 2016 SnapLogic Live series next week with Hybrid Cloud Integration for Salesforce. As all SnapLogic Live webinars go, this session will feature a live demo of SnapLogic integration in action, this time with a focus on Salesforce.
We are pleased to share with you the integration success story of one of our customers: Xactly. Xactly is a leading provider of enterprise incentive compensation solutions for employee and sales performance management.
In order to stay lean, agile and stay on top of their rapid growth, the Xactly IT organization took a cloud-first approach. While they quickly adopted and gained efficiencies from SaaS solutions such as Workday, Salesforce and NetSuite OpenAir, the fact that they were disconnected led to information siloes. Pulling information out of each tool in the stack took time and effort. This did not fit their agile goals.
So they turned to SnapLogic. Continue reading “Xactly Uses SnapLogic to Connect Cloud-Based Applications, Speed Business Data Flows”
