SnapLogic Announces Salesforce Integration Solution Pack
SaaS Integration Innovator Enables Rapid and Easy Integration of Salesforce with Other SaaS Applications, Enterprise Applications, Web Sites, and Other Data
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Aug 5, 2008 – SnapLogic, Inc., the Really Simple Integration company, today announced the Salesforce Integration Solution Pack, an extension to the SnapLogic open source data integration framework. SnapLogic enables enterprises to integrate data on both sides of the enterprise firewall and to create custom integration solutions, including application integrations, enterprise mashups, and rich Internet applications (RIAs). The Salesforce Integration Solution Pack enables rapid and easy integration of Salesforce.com with other SaaS applications, behind-the-firewall enterprise applications, Web sites, and other data sources. The Salesforce Integration Solution Pack is the second SaaS integration solution pack offered by SnapLogic to date. Recently, SnapLogic announced its SugarCRM Solution Pack, which supports both standard SugarCRM deployments as well as Sugar On-Demand implementations. The SnapLogic Salesforce.com Solution Pack will be available as a free download from www.snaplogic.com beginning Aug. 18.
The Salesforce.com Solution Pack includes a complete set of SnapLogic Resources for reading, writing, and updating data in Salesforce.com accounts. Integration pipelines can be created within minutes of installing SnapLogic. Uses of the Salesforce.com Solution Pack include:
- Migrating customer records from internal CRM systems to Salesforce.com
- Creating custom data feeds that enable authorized users to import Salesforce.com data securely into enterprise portals, wikis, and desktop applications, such as Excel
“As Software-as-a-Service applications see increased mainstream adoption, the isolation of previously local data becomes a real concern,” said Stephen O’Grady, principal analyst, RedMonk. “SnapLogic’s Solution Packs are aimed at precisely that problem set—the challenge of blurring the lines of internal and external data.”
“SnapLogic breaks down barriers to SaaS adoption and enables enterprises to realize the full value of their Salesforce.com investments,” said Chris Marino, chief executive officer, SnapLogic. “SnapLogic’s solution packs for Salesforce.com and SugarCRM provide enterprises with the fastest and easiest way to integrate popular SaaS applications with other enterprise applications and data, on whichever side of the firewall they reside.”
