SnapLogic seeks partners to help drive LATAM growth

By Carlos Hernandez Saca

I am very excited to announce that SnapLogic is now seeking Latin America (LATAM) - Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Chile – partners to support our global expansion. This news follows our successful launch of SnapLogic’s global/US partner program, SnapLogic Partner Connect, just over a year ago.

We’ve got momentum. We’ve seen first-hand that SnapLogic dramatically transforms how companies integrate data, applications, and devices for digital business. In December 2016, SnapLogic secured an additional $40 million in funding to accelerate its global expansion. And we see the channel as an important driver of this expansion.

We’re making this call for partners to help us build a rich ecosystem of technology, consulting, and reseller partners in the LATAM market so that joint customers see the benefits of adopting software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, cloud data management, and big data technologies. SnapLogic’s technology enables this by accelerating integration and driving digital transformation in the enterprise.

The SnapLogic Partner Connect program includes several categories, reflecting the breadth of the SnapLogic platform and depth of adjacent partner solutions. Partner types include:

  • Technology Partners– These are providers of technologies with which SnapLogic integrates, and includes partners such as Salesforce, Workday, AWS, Microsoft, Cloudera, and Snowflake.
  • OEM/Managed Services Partners- OEM partners integrate SnapLogic into their product or service offerings. OEM partners include Manthan, Reltio, Planview, and Verizon.
  • Global Systems Integrator Partners– SnapLogic’s GSI partners are implementing SnapLogic as part of comprehensive digital transformation projects at some of the world’s leading enterprises. These partners include firms such as Accenture, PwC, Cognizant, HCL, Tata Consultancy Services, and Tech Mahindra.
  • Consulting Partners– These are organizations that provide integration consulting and best practices services, and include partners such as Interworks, Softtek, and Semantix Brazil.
  • Reseller Partners– The roster of SnapLogic international resellers is growing rapidly and increasing SnapLogic’s presence in new markets worldwide. Resellers include MatrixIT in Israel, KPC in France, Sogeti in United Kingdom, Systemation in the Netherlands, Softtek in Mexico, DRZ and Semantix in Brazil.

SnapLogic CEO Gaurav Dhillon says, “Extending our partners program into the LATAM channel is a crucial part of our business growth strategy. Working alongside strategic channel partners will provide an exciting opportunity to reach new LATAM customers and help them realize their digital transformation goals through connected data and applications.”

And I agree. The market opportunity for data, application, and device integration is large and growing, representing a unique opportunity for our partners in LATAM. As customers across the region increasingly use our modern, cloud-first platform to integrate and manage data across cloud, big data, IoT, mobile, social, and more, we look forward to working with new partners in LATAM who can help accelerate their digital transformation efforts.

SnapLogic’s self-service integration platform was recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS). Global enterprise customers such as Adobe, AstraZeneca, Box, Capital One, GameStop, Verizon and Wendy’s rely on SnapLogic to automate business processes, accelerate analytics and drive digital transformation. If you’re interested in partnering with us, we want to hear from you.

SnapLogic CEO Gaurav Dhillon Shares His “Founder Story” with Ignition Partners

Founding a startup is not for the faint of heart. Raising capital, building product, managing teams, winning customers, fending off competitors — the list goes on and on. Every successful entrepreneur knows you can’t go it alone, you’ve got to find strategic, committed, supportive partners that will help you through the tough times and propel you forward in good times.

SnapLogic found exactly that in Ignition Partners back in 2012. In the trenches together now for the past four years, the two have grown SnapLogic into what it is today and look forward to helping the company along its path to becoming a world-class cloud software company for the ages.

Reflecting on the partnership, SnapLogic founder and CEO Gaurav Dhillon sat down with the team from Ignition to share his thoughts on the daunting fundraising process, overcoming bumps in the road, and why Ignition is the ideal partner for SnapLogic. Gaurav is joined in the “Founder Stories” video by other Ignition portfolio executives including Laura Mather of Unitive, Godfrey Sullivan and Erik Swan of Splunk, Kumar Sreekanti of BlueData, Jonathan Gray of Cask and Amy Chang of Accompany.

Below are excerpts from Gaurav’s conversation with Ignition Partners.

On the daunting fundraising process:

“Your product gets examined, people need to take apart the idea and put it together again in front of your eyes. For a lot of founders and entrepreneurs, it’s very difficult to have someone sort of decompose your baby right in front of you.”

On what makes for a good venture partner:

“There are certain firms and certain partners who approach you as ‘the boss’; no bad news is ever allowed. The joke in the Valley is if you take money from ‘that guy’ you need a ‘VP of Management of That Guy’.”

On overcoming bumps in the road:

“At SnapLogic, we had to make some tough choices, we had to really take a different product approach than we had started with.”

On why SnapLogic partnered with Ignition Partners:

“A lot of folks in the venture capital business are well connected but less and less of them have the sense for how to build a great company, how to build something that is durable, who really take pleasure in helping someone grow. That’s when you start to say – ‘who’s going to be the best person for us on our journey’. And make no mistake, all companies, especially successful ones, are on a journey and they have to deal with the twists and turns of what is going to happen in the marketplace. In the case of Ignition, this team had all come from operational backgrounds, they had been in my shoes, they had run big products and big companies.”

SnapLogic Sits Down with theCUBE at AWS re:Invent to Talk Self-Service Cloud Analytics

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 integration 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.
