Talking Cloudification and Data Gravity in the Enterprise

SnapLogic_ipaasLast week we were part of an online event called Cloud-Con: Integration & Web APIs, hosted by Integration Developer News. SnapLogic VP of Marketing Darren Cunningham was on a panel of expert speakers to talk about cloud integration and introduce the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform. The session covered the following topics (check out the recording here):

  • Adoption trends for iPaaS in the enterprise
  • The question of “cloudification” – figuring out which apps to move to the cloud and when
  • The importance of data gravity and whether or not a company’s data will reside behind the firewall or in the cloud
  • New enterprise integration challenges including big data access and analytics, disconnected SaaS silos and API proliferation
  • Speed as the #1 business driver for a cloud integration platform
  • How traditional integration approaches can’t keep up – legacy EAI is not build for the web and is code-intensive; legacy ETL is built only for rows and columns and struggles with real-time (the “Integrator’s Dilemma“)
  • Legacy Integration (rows and columns, have to choose between batch or real-time, behind the firewall) vs. Elastic Integration (any data type, any time, any scale, any location, any device)

If you don’t have time to watch the full recording, check out the slides below that cover the major points from last week’s discussion. You can also see a quick demo of the SnapLogic elastic iPaaS in action – our latest and greatest look at the product – or contact us to set up a live demo and discuss how we can help with data and application integration as you move more and more systems to the cloud.
