Closing the Most Interesting of Years with the Pioneers of Enterprise Automation
Here at SnapLogic we just closed our fiscal year, and it marks my first year at the company. And what a year it’s been. Like many of you, the challenges of the pandemic have forced us all to re-evaluate how we live, work, play, and learn (a shameless copy of Cisco’s amazing tagline during my time there!). But I am proud to say that through it all, our company stood strong, focused on our amazing customers and helping them get through their own challenges, and taking care of every person on our staff. And with that, we closed one of our best years ever.
These successes were brought straight into the spotlight with our first ever (virtual) Enterprise Automation Summit. It was, without doubt, one of my proudest moments as a marketer, to see our company, customers, partners, and prospects come together to define the future of Enterprise Automation. You can view the highlights from the Summit in this short video.
We heard from our enterprise automation pioneer customers including Aramark, AstraZeneca, Illumina, Pitney Bowes, Quadpay, T. Rowe Price, and others about how they are modernizing technology environments, automating business processes, and ingesting mountains of data, quickly and efficiently into the cloud. They are achieving amazing business results and making an impact in the world.
Given the ongoing global impact of the COVID-19 health crisis, it was particularly rewarding to hear from AstraZeneca about how SnapLogic’s easy to use, and powerful, intelligent iPaaS enabled them to empower over 400 non-technical business users worldwide. On the path to a vaccine, AstraZeneca business users built their own pipelines to share clinical data and collaborate with other global researchers.
It was also great to hear how Aramark now employs a modern data architecture featuring streaming-data through SnapLogic from touchless sensors located in sports stadiums and arenas throughout the country. This enables Aramark to execute its services while providing a measure of protection from physical contact for stadium and arena goers.
And we heard from Pitney Bowes, who are investing heavily in the cloud, data science, and AI and machine learning to automate much of its growing eCommerce business, as featured recently in this WSJ article.
Statements like these from our customers left me inspired:
“We don’t need an army of developers to bring about automation. We can do more with the same set of resources.” — Jyotsna Sharma, VP and head of data architecture at T. Rowe Price
“With SnapLogic, we were able to have a single place where different kinds of data can be brought together. It’s about a person needing marketing data to go to a marketing application, or getting transactional data to go to a transactional application, or getting IoT data to go to a streaming application—all from a central location.” — Vishal Shah, solutions integration and deployment architect at Pitney Bowes
Across the board, our enterprise automation pioneer customers are realizing new business opportunities because they can accelerate and get to market faster. Whether on-premises or in the cloud, they’re seamlessly integrating and flowing operational data from (and between) applications like Adobe, Workday, Salesforce, SAP, Anaplan, and others. They are hydrating S3 data lakes and pushing data to leading cloud data warehouses like Snowflake, Amazon Redshift, and Google BigQuery for analytics.
If there’s one thing this year has taught us, times are changing! And the same goes for the data and application integration industry. Enterprise automation is the future and SnapLogic is leading the way to accelerate business processes and enable more successful digital transformations.
There’s plenty more to come in 2021, but you can watch the replay of our entire Enterprise Automation Summit here. I invite you to check out the technical and business tracks and hear for yourself. While you’re at it, pre-register for this year’s Automation Summit.
We’re all ready for the new roaring 20’s, are you?
