Early success stories across industries
We had the opportunity to hear use cases and stories of innovation from enterprises across industries that are proactively using generative AI to improve operational efficiency, data transformation and customer acquisition.
Siemens Energy: a blueprint for innovation and efficiency
The event further shone a spotlight on the success story of Siemens Energy. Mario Pilz illustrated how the company leveraged AWS services and SnapLogic to bridge its IoT platform with the standard MES system across its vast network of over 80 global factories.
This case study underscored the power and capability of AWS and SnapLogic in catalyzing innovation and operational efficiency, serving as a blueprint for other organizations aiming to upscale their technological infrastructure.
Syngenta’s leap with Smart Mart: a transformation story
The journey of Syngenta’s Smart Mart, presented by Harish Krishnamoorthy, was a narrative of transformation and innovation. Syngenta’s choice of SnapLogic, despite having access to seven different ETL tools, speaks volumes about the platform’s usability and efficiency.
The outcomes, including a 60% reduction in time to market and an 80% reduction in loads on SAP, were not just impressive; they were game-changing. This segment highlighted SnapLogic’s intuitive design and its “too easy to use” interface, a rare criticism that underscores the platform’s user-friendliness.
Optilyz revolutionizing direct mail marketing
The presentation by Katya Bakhova and Philip Lenhart from Optilyz was a deep dive into how the strategic use of AWS and SnapLogic is revolutionizing the landscape of direct mail marketing in the digital age.
The introduction of the “custom connector” emerged as a pivotal innovation, significantly enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of customer acquisition strategies in an era dominated by digital marketing tactics.
A path to rapid value: GenAI from SnapLogic
Sean O‘Meara, SnapLogic’s solution engineer, captivated the audience with a demonstration of SnapLogic’s GenAI capabilities for data migration.
The demonstration, which included the seamless migration from Oracle to AWS Redshift and the optimization of push-down ETL to Redshift with AI support, was not just a display of technical prowess but a testament to the synergistic relationship between SnapLogic and AWS. This demonstration underscored our commitment to providing rapid, value-driven solutions to our clients.
The day culminated with an open session, fostering a rich environment for dialogue, collaboration, and networking. This segment provided a platform for attendees to engage with experts from AWS, Eviden, and SnapLogic, facilitating a sharing of ideas and perspectives that are crucial in the ever-evolving tech landscape.
Charting the course for innovation with GenAI
