As we continue to roll out our Elastic Integration Platform to more and more enterprise customers, I’m excited to say that SnapLogic has been recognized this week by two prominent publications. Here’s a summary: “The Sand Hill Cloud 50 represents a unique set of players of various sizes and hues that span SaaS, Paas and IaaS, security, storage and services spaces and that stand out from the crowd with a unique differentiation and value proposition.” According to Sand Hill, the 50 “represents a unique set of cloud players that stand out from the crowd.” Here’s what they said about SnapLogic:
“Integration platform as a service that connects cloud applications, APIs and disparate data sources with the rest of the enterprise. Named a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant in the integration platform as a service category. Customers include Netflix, CapitalOne, iRobot and Acxiom. The company enjoys 100 percent growth in YoY bookings.”
Database Trends and Applications magazine introduced the second annual ?DBTA 100? list of companies that matter most in data. According to the DBTA, “with organizations increasingly seeking to become data-driven entities?companies that actually use the data they are amassing for competitive advantage?DBTA set out to recognize innovative providers of hardware, software, and services….The 100 companies that matter in data comprises both seasoned veterans and disruptive new vendors.” As part of the DBTA 100, we had the opportunity to publish a “View From the Top” company overview. Here’s my summary of SnapLogic and what we’re setting out to do: Enterprise IT organizations today are facing a dilemma?their legacy integration technologies were built before the era of big data, social, mobile and cloud (SMAC) computing and simply can?t keep up. With respect to Clayton Christensen and his book The Innovators Dilemma, we call this The Integrator?s Dilemma. In 2013 SnapLogic introduced the industry?s first Elastic Integration platform as a service (iPaaS). Fast, multi-point and modern, it?s built from the ground up to handle today?s data, application and API connectivity challenges.
- Data Integration as a Service: Don?t let old ETL slow down your new analytics. SnapLogic goes beyond rows and columns-centric tools while providing pre-built Snaps for Tableau, Amazon Redshift and big data sources.
- Cloud Application Integration: Got Salesforce? Workday? ServiceNow? What about SAP and Oracle? Whether it?s cloud-to-cloud or cloud-to-ground connectivity, if you?ve got SaaS, we?ve got Snaps.
- APIs and the Internet of Things: Keep up to date and be ready for what?s next with Elastic Integration. With over 160 pre-built connectors, called Snaps, and a software-defined multi-tenant architecture that respects data gravity, the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform is ideally suited for today?s hybrid IT environments. It?s the Integrator?s Solution for the SMAC era.
I should also note that SnapLogic is included in this week’s BVP Cloudscape: Top 300 Private Cloud Companies. It’s a pretty impressive list of cloud and big data companies. We’re also listed in the 2014 OnDemand 100 Top Private Companies.
