3 min read

At SnapLogic we are driven by our customers’ success – we thrive when they thrive. The passion for our customers’ success only increases when we hear of some of the amazing work they do, and then we’re doubly excited when their integration projects get noticed by other industry watchers.

One of those watchers, Constellation Research, recently published an in-depth case study detailing how Kaplan Test Prep successfully deployed the SnapLogic integration platform to move data from dozens of apps and data sources into a cloud-based data lake, reducing time to value from weeks to days and enriching data reporting to fuel product and service innovation, all while saving the organization hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Kaplan is a global higher education company that helps millions of students prepare for high-stakes exams like the SAT, GMAT, USMLE, BAR review, and more every year. The 80-year old company had a disparate combination of legacy systems they used to gather data and information on student performance, customer issues, product usage, and corporate financials. These services were critical for the business but were incredibly cumbersome and expensive to operate, and these problems only exacerbated as the company continued to grow.

Kaplan came to SnapLogic for a strategic iPaaS solution that could help integrate the vast amount of data the company was analyzing, be flexible to connect the various old and new data sources, while also being quick enough to send data to the right department when the business needed it.

The end results for Kaplan were staggering, as SnapLogic helped Kaplan:

  • Reduce the annual operating cost from $1 million to about $150,000
  • Reduce the time to create data reports from 4 weeks to 3 days
  • Ingest 50+ applications rapidly into their data lake in the Amazon Web Services environment
  • Enrich data reporting to fuel innovation in products and services
  • Create an enterprise-standard technology connecting systems across the business

We’re also grateful that Kaplan shared their story and results with us for both a case study and video.
