Winter 2017 Release Is Now Available

As enterprises grow and adopt best of breed solutions based in the cloud, on-premises and/or hybrid, integrating data between varied applications, databases and data warehouses (used by the enterprise) continues to be a challenge. New solutions are rapidly adopted, and technical and non-technical users alike need help to meet the challenge of quickly integrating the data from multiple sources into one view to make decisions at the speed of business.

snp-76209-winterrelease-484x252-facebookThe release includes several new Snaps and Snap updates that make it faster and easier to integrate Workday, NetSuite and Amazon Redshift with other applications and data sources across the enterprise. All three systems are increasingly popular as businesses embrace the cloud to run their business, a “cloud shift” that Gartner says will drive more than $1 trillion in technology spending by 2020.

Here is a brief overview of new and enhanced Snaps:

  • Confluent KafkaThe need for streaming data becomes more important and today about one-third of the Fortune 500 uses Kafka. SnapLogic is pleased to introduce a new Snap for Confluent’s distribution of Apache KafkaTM, an enterprise-ready solution that connects data sources, applications and IoT devices in real time.
  • TeradataSeveral new Snaps have been added to Teradata Snap Pack expanding support with Teradata TPT Load, TPT Update Snap, and Teradata Export to HDFS Snap which allows customers to easily export data from Teradata to an HDFS cluster without the need for any additional installation or complex configuration.
  • Workday: Workday Read Snap has been enhanced to provide a simplified Workday output format making it even easier to be consumed by downstream systems.
  • NetSuite: Asynchronous operations support for NetSuite, enables more efficient use of NetSuite’s capabilities, through new Snaps including Netsuite Async  Upsert, Async Search, Async Delete List, Async GetList, Check Async Status and GetAsync Result Operations Support Snap.
  • Amazon Redshift: Our customers use Redshift to connect multiple on-premises data sources and applications to Redshift without any coding. The Winter 2017 release introduces a new Snap to execute multiple RedShift commands in one Snap, thereby making RedShift data integration pipelines even more easy to create and manage.
  • Amazon S3: The Winter 2017 release brings additional streaming performance improvement while writing to an Amazon S3 bucket.

Continued Enterprise Focus: Introducing Asset Search Functionality

SnapLogic continues to be the best platform for enterprise IT and LOB teams to integrate applications and data sources without any coding. Enterprises often have thousands of pipelines, files and accounts and it’s hard to search for a given asset. The Winter 2017 release allows customers to quickly search for assets and also filter search outputs.

Security and Performance Enhancements

Security and performance continue to be focus areas for SnapLogic. To further tighten user passwords, the Winter 2017 release enforces enhanced password complexity requirements. Customers can also configure session timeout and idle timeout parameters. In addition, the MongoDB snap pack has been extended to support SSL.

SnapLogic is committed to supporting the growing enterprise’s needs. We hope you will find the new Confluence Kafta snap, expanded support for WorkDay, Netsuite, Amazon RedShift, enhanced search and security useful. Customers can start using the capabilities described in the Winter 2017 release right away. For more information on the Winter 2017 release, including demo videos, see www.snaplogic.com/winter2017.

Don’t Let Cloud Be Another Silo: Accelerate Your AWS integration

Gone are the days when enterprises had all of their apps and data sources on-premises. Today is the era of big data, cloud and hybrid deployments. More and more enterprises are rapidly adopting different SaaS applications and hosting their solutions in public clouds including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. But soon enterprises realize that their SaaS applications and on-premises data sources are not integrated with their public cloud footprint and the integration itself becomes an expensive and time consuming undertaking.

SnapLogic Roadshow – Is The Data Warehouse Dead?

Short answer to that provocative question: no – it’s just changing. Our data integration road show hit four U.S. cities over the past two weeks. The keynote presentation was delivered by James Markarian, SnapLogic’s CTO. He shared his perspective on modern data management, the role of the data warehouse in a hybrid cloud environment, and important considerations for an enterprise data lake strategy.

We were also joined by our partner, Amazon Web Services, who highlighted their cloud data management platform, with an emphasis on Amazon Redshift. Together we highlighted some of the joint SnapLogic/AWS success stories around hybrid cloud data integration, including GameStop, Box, CapitalOne, and eero.

The bulk of James’ keynote focused on the changes to the data landscape that are affecting the role and structure of the data warehouse.  He described “data warehousing 1.0” from the 1980’s which introduced a convenient, single place to warehouse all data, but which was expensive and reliant on scripting to integrate sources. He contrasted that with “data warehousing 2.0” of the 1990’s which saw the rise of ETL processes and data marts, but which was still rigid and typically on-premises. Since that era, however, data warehousing has remained generally static. Now, with the dramatic increase in unstructured/polystructured data, plus cloudification of data sources, data warehousing 2.0 has fallen a bit short. Enter the data lake. James cautioned the audience not to think of a data lake as an amorphous, no-rules dumping ground for unstructured data. Instead, he identified multiple “zones” within the data lake, each of which has certain requirements, rules and uses.

Finally, James illustrated how lakeshore data marts and cloud-based data warehouses – connected using SnapLogic – address some of the risk and high labor costs that can be associated with Hadoop-centric data lakes.

Attendees – some of whom were already far along in their data lake adoption journey and some still in a “data warehouse 2.0” environment – certainly left with food for thought. Watch this space for the next time SnapLogic comes to a city near you.
