Really Simple Integration
SnapLogic 2.0 enables “Really Simple Integration,” a new approach to data integration that leverages RESTful Web technology to provide agile data integration solutions for business IT groups. Really Simple Integration enables enterprises to quickly and easily make data from databases, SaaS applications, SOA Web services, and other common data sources readily available for use by business analysts and other business users. In the Really Simple Integration paradigm, knowledge workers use familiar tools, including Web browsers, Google, and Excel, to discover, consume, transform, and publish enterprise data, creating a virtuous cycle of self-service data access and distribution.
SnapLogic Data Integration Framework
The SnapLogic data integration framework consists of a SnapLogic Server and SnapLogic Components, which perform access and transformation functions such as reading and processing data from databases, enterprise applications, XML documents, files and even web pages. SnapLogic Components are configured into SnapLogic Resources, which are linked together to form SnapLogic Pipelines. Each SnapLogic Pipeline performs a data integration task, such as reading data from a data warehouse, reformatting it, and writing it to a database. A growing collection of free SnapLogic Components and Pipelines is available at www.snaplogic.org.
“Much of the industry discussion about enterprise mashups, rich Internet applications (RIAs), and related topics has focused on presentation technologies,” said Chris Marino, chief executive officer, SnapLogic. “SnapLogic powers these applications by enabling knowledge workers to locate, manipulate, and share critical enterprise data so that it may be presented.”
New in Version 2.0
SnapLogic 2.0 Community Edition is a thoroughly re-architected and optimized version of the SnapLogic data integration framework. New features in the latest version include:
- A high-performance SnapLogic Server, which runs on Windows or Linux
- Indexable metadata, enabling distributed SnapLogic Resources and Pipelines to be discovered through search engines, including Google and behind-the-firewall enterprise search tools
