I talk with customers as often as I am able, and one of the questions I typically ask is why they chose SnapLogic. “Ease of use” is one of the most common answers. The SnapLogic interface is sometimes described as “deceptively simple” in that it is easy and intuitive enough for the non-developer to use without assistance, yet powerful enough for the expert integration developer. The Summer 2015 release makes things even simpler for the self-service integrator, but enhances the structure and governance that enterprises require.
Why is it important for large enterprises to enable self-service integrators? In short: business agility. If app and data integration is the exclusive domain of a few highly trained experts, integration will always be a bottleneck. When new business applications or data sources are added to the mix to meet company objectives, manual, code-intensive integrations will slow the process. By opening integration to a wider group of employees — with the appropriate controls — enterprises can respond to change faster. In this way, the Summer 2015 enhancements to the SnapLogic platform improve our support for business agility.
The release features a variety of new capabilities and improvements including:
- Impact analysis and modeling so both experts and non-experts can anticipate the impact of their changes
- Enhanced governance so administrators can provision and monitor self-service users with confidence
- New Snaps for Amazon DynamoDB, Apache Avro, Apache HBase and Google Spreadsheets
- Updates to a variety of Snaps
