This week, the SnapLogic team will be supporting one of our partners, Amazon Web Services, in Las Vegas for the annual AWS re:Invent conference. This gathering of the global AWS community will feature hands-on labs and bootcamps and cover topics such as infrastructure maintenance, and improving developer productivity, network security and application performance.
Are you currently using Amazon Web Services and struggling to find the right integration solution to connect the platform with other cloud and on-premises applications and data sources? Adopting AWS Redshift and looking for a modern data integration solution? If so, check out this demonstration of SnapLogic for AWS.
Last week we hosted a webinar with our partner AWS and our customer Earth Networks: Weathering the Data Storm: How SnapLogic and Amazon Web Services Delivered Analytics in the Cloud for Earth Networks. The webinar featured:
- An overview of AWS S3, Dynamo DB, and Amazon Redshift
- An overview of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform and our AWS-specific connectivity
- A summary of Earth Networks’ journey to AWS and their hybrid cloud data integration requirements
There was a lot of great content and best practices shared during the 45 minute presentation. Not surprisingly, my favorite quote came at the end from Earth Networks on the combination of PaaS + hybrid cloud data integration:
“Amazon Web Services is the platform and SnapLogic is the glue.”
I’d like to thank our friends at Amazon Web Services for presenting and working with us on preparing and promoting the webinar and of course Eddie Dingels, architect at Earth Networks, for sharing his fantastic story and insights. You can learn more about SnapLogic for AWS Redshift here.
Interested in data integration and cloud analytics? Join us tomorrow for a live webinar featuring SnapLogic customer Earth Networks, and how they used SnapLogic and Amazon Web Services to deliver analytics in the cloud.
Earth Networks leverages big data from its vast, worldwide network of sensors monitoring weather and greenhouse gases to provide weather alerts for governments and consumers. Because minutes matter when severe weather looms, Earth Networks must quickly retrieve and analyze large datasets from many sources. Driven in part by explosive data growth from mobile devices, Earth Networks needed a better and more scalable solution.
Enter SnapLogic and Amazon Web Services. In this live webinar, we’ll discuss how Earth Networks was able to create a responsive, self-service cloud for data integration, preparation and analytics. Register now to learn how Earth Networks:
- Reduced its on-premises datacenter from 300 to 7 server instances leveraging Amazon Web Services
- Gained faster data insights using SnapLogic’s Amazon Redshift data integration to quickly integrate, transfer and analyze data from multiple applications
If you can’t make tomorrow’s session, we’ll be sending out a recording of the webinar and presentation slides for those interested. Register here.
Last week the SnapLogic team was in New York for the AWS Summit. It was a fantastic event, with amazing energy. For me the words that came up over and over with people I spoke with at the booth were:
- …and Crowded (it was a record turnout!)
Not surprisingly, we spent most of our time talking to AWS customers, partners and prospects about everything related to data, data and application integration, data warehousing and cloud analytics. I found that when people saw some of the logos on our sign (see above) of vendors for whom we also deliver pre-built connectivity, called Snaps, the conversations deepened. I’ve compiled a Storify summary of some of the highlights from the keynote, tweets featuring Amazon Redshift, which is the fastest-growing new product line in the company’s history, and of course the perspective from the SnapLogic booth, which was packed throughout the day. I’ve embedded it below:
Thanks to the AWS team for a great event! Here are some additional resources on how SnapLogic powers AWS Redshift:
- Free cloud data integration trial for Redshift (no on-premises software required)
- Video: Getting started with the SnapLogic free trial for AWS Redshift
If you want to dive deeper into the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform, which runs on AWS, this post summarizes some of our most popular cloud integration architecture posts.
As we move further along into the New Year, we’re focusing on some key messages for 2014 around cloud integration, marketing, Big Data and analytics. In addition to checking out the many Cloud predictions out there, it’s also going to be important this year to keep in mind Digital Marketing as “the central engine of growth for many companies,” and the possibility that 2014 will become the year of cloud business analytics.
If this topic is of interest to you and your company, we invite you to take part in an interactive webinar two weeks from now where we’ll be discussing the new wave of Cloud Analytics in particular. This is an important topic because, as traditional approaches to extraction, transformation and loading (ETL) and enterprise data warehousing are under siege, the demand for self-service and increased data access continues to grow as organizations increasingly compete on analytics.
Some examples of these changes can be seen as follows:
- Amazon Redshift saw incredible adoption in 2013, becoming Amazon’s fastest growing product line
- Tableau introduces cloud-based data visualization and Tidemark delivers powerful enterprise performance management in the cloud
- Birst continues to gain traction in all segments of the market as IT organizations look to deliver greater business agility and visibility while reducing costs
In addition to discussing the shift to business intelligence in the cloud, we’ll also review specific use cases for powering your next-generation analytics strategy with the right integration platform as a service (iPaaS) solution. This includes how we see customers using Amazon Redshift and how we expect that to change in 2014, and how visualization tools like Birst, Tableau Desktop and Tableau Online allow you to take advantage of cloud data warehousing.
So join us at 10am PST/1pm EST on Tuesday, January 28th to learn more about the rise of the cloud data warehouse. We encourage information and integration architects, data warehouse practitioners, systems integrators, business analysts and BI practitioners to attend. See you then!
Last week, we announced SnapLogic as the fastest integration platform as a service (iPaaS) and hosted a great discussion online between SnapLogic founder and CEO Gaurav Dhillon and industry thought leader David Linthicum about the future of cloud integration and data management in today’s API economy. It was a busy week and an exciting time for us to get the message across about the “Integrator’s Dilemma” and the need for speed (Simple, Powerful, Elastic, Enterprise-ready, Deployment flexibility) when it comes to cloud integration.
This week, we’re hosting a webinar that dives further into our Winter Release of the SnapLogic Integration Cloud. The webinar will address how to get a faster time to value with our HTML5 cloud Designer, Elastic Integration for hybrid AND cloud-to-cloud deployments, our enterprise-ready security, administration and monitoring platform and how to connect to the 160+ Snaps in our SnapStore.
Join us on Thursday, October 31st (Happy Halloween!) to hear more and get the latest news on the SnapLogic Integration Cloud.
