In the midst of some big announcements recently – our new Partner Connect program, kicking off a July data warehouse roadshow and yesterday’s Top Places to work award – we’d like to take time during this week’s SnapLogic Live to review our definition of the term ”citizen integrator,” and how to enable someone in that position to facilitate the various integration demands within their company.
As the integration market continues to mature, there is a constant demand to support and process more complex data and process flows. When applications process large data, they often run out of resources and become unresponsive, leaving users confused and unhappy. Gauging resources and alerting users with appropriate messages are some of the most important factors of ideal software. In the Winter 2016 release of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform, we introduced the concept of pipeline queuing, which allows users to define thresholds for their Snaplexes, and when thresholds are reached, any further requests to it are queued until the next resources are available.

SnapLogic was recently reviewed by advisory firm MWD Advisors for our efforts to reinvent integration platform technology by creating one unified platform that can address many different kinds of application and data integration use cases.
A few highlights from the report:
- An in-depth look at our multi-tenant, AWS-hosted platform which includes the SnapLogic Designer, Manager and Dashboard
- The Snaplex execution environment; namely, the Cloudplex, Groundplex and Hadooplex
- 3 competitive differentiators – deployment flexibility, a unified approach across multiple integration scenario types and both scalability and adaptability
MWD Advisors is a specialist advisory firm providing practical industry insights to business leaders and technology professionals working to drive change with the help of digital technology.
For the past few months, we’ve been hosting a series of bi-weekly live demo sessions with our team of integration experts at SnapLogic. Each week we focus on one particular type of integration and, via a live demo, shows how customers can solve different integration challenges using the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform. So far, we’ve covered everything from app integration to big data integration for customers using Hadoop.
In addition to the demo, we also take time to cover a Q&A session based on questions we receive from customers and attendees.
If you’re interested in ServiceNow integration, register here for next week’s SnapLogic Live session which will take place on Thursday, October 29th at 10:00am PST / 1:00pm EST. In the meantime, recordings of past sessions are available to view on our video site. One of our most popular SnapLogic Live demos, featuring Salesforce integration, can also be viewed below:
I talk with customers as often as I am able, and one of the questions I typically ask is why they chose SnapLogic. “Ease of use” is one of the most common answers. The SnapLogic interface is sometimes described as “deceptively simple” in that it is easy and intuitive enough for the non-developer to use without assistance, yet powerful enough for the expert integration developer. The Summer 2015 release makes things even simpler for the self-service integrator, but enhances the structure and governance that enterprises require.
Why is it important for large enterprises to enable self-service integrators? In short: business agility. If app and data integration is the exclusive domain of a few highly trained experts, integration will always be a bottleneck. When new business applications or data sources are added to the mix to meet company objectives, manual, code-intensive integrations will slow the process. By opening integration to a wider group of employees — with the appropriate controls — enterprises can respond to change faster. In this way, the Summer 2015 enhancements to the SnapLogic platform improve our support for business agility.
The release features a variety of new capabilities and improvements including:
- Impact analysis and modeling so both experts and non-experts can anticipate the impact of their changes
- Enhanced governance so administrators can provision and monitor self-service users with confidence
- New Snaps for Amazon DynamoDB, Apache Avro, Apache HBase and Google Spreadsheets
- Updates to a variety of Snaps

We recently posted a recap of last week’s Hadoop Summit here on the blog and now have a great highlight video to go along with it. The event proved to be a great couple of days for the SnapLogic team to talk to customers and prospects about their Hadoop adoption plans, big data integration use cases, and how to connect faster with the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform.
The team also attended keynotes and sessions, had great discussions about the potential of the data lake, and hosted a lunch featuring SnapLogic Chief Scientist and big data expert Greg Benson, who covered big data processing engines, SnapReduce, and how enterprise customers are ingesting, preparing and delivering big data with SnapLogic’s modern data integration platform.
Take a look at the video below, as well as a round-up of some of the social buzz during the event:
There was a lot of social buzz at this year’s Hadoop Summit, with everything from giveaways at our booth to technical sessions covering all things Hadoop:
This month, we are planning the delivery of our latest Snap Release.
NetSuite Update will be added to the NetSuite Snap Pack. This Snap provides the ability to update the records of an object in NetSuite.
This release also introduces the Splunk Search Snap, which executes a search query using Splunk’s REST API.
As with all releases, we make continual improvements on our Snaps. Changes in this release focus on Database Snaps, NetSuite Snap Pack, Script Snap, and others. See the Release Notes for more information.
