Today, in a bold move, we announced the release of SnapLogic’s latest AI-powered innovation, GenAI Builder. The first ever no-code, click-and-configure application development tool, GenAI Builder allows organizations to take GenAI into their own hands and build limitless, secure applications with large language model (LLM) capabilities.
Watch the unveiling of GenAI Builder on demand.
What is GenAI Builder?
GenAI Builder is a specialized tool within the SnapLogic ecosystem, aimed at integrating internal company data with LLMs. A first-of-its-kind automated solution, GenAI Builder rapidly ingests untapped enterprise data to easily create new business insights, applications, and processes. It uses the Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) approach to teach AI models about specific business data, enhancing the relevance and accuracy of AI responses.
This applies to multiple types of data, whether in the cloud or on-prem and can be applied to critical use cases, including:
- Customer support automation
- Data analysis and reporting
- Contract and document review
- Marketing personalization
Uniquely compatible with legacy mainframe data, modern databases and APIs, GenAI Builder builds conversational AI to transform and simplify any customer, employee and partner digital experience. It is particularly suitable for businesses seeking a ready-to-use solution that integrates with their existing data infrastructure, offering enhanced security and tailored AI responses.
“SnapLogic’s GenAI Builder seems incredibly promising and we’re very eager to see how it can help us harness the power of LLMs by extending its powerful integration platform we already rely on daily. Our team has so many ideas on how LLMs can help us create innovative solutions but the pace, technical knowledge required to experiment and the security concerns have been a challenge to overcome. By simplifying and streamlining the development process, SnapLogic’s GenAI builder could be a game changer.”Gaurav Bajpai, Sr Director, Engineering at Lumeris
The boundless opportunities in GenAI
Generative AI is projected to have a profound impact on global business, with McKinsey estimating it could “add the equivalent of $4.4 trillion annually” through improvement of customer interactions, automation of business processes, conversational business intelligence, and IT acceleration via code generation.
Unfortunately, companies seeking to capitalize on generative AI face prohibitive obstacles, including:
- Inaccuracy of results
- Privacy and security concerns
- A lack of available AI skills
These coding, skills and bug-fix obstacles are similar to what customers face when they implement a modern integration strategy. By adding GenAI Builder on top of its generative integration platform, we’ve extended our powerful integration capabilities to also address the problems customers face with building generative AI solutions.
Businesses today can apply these tools to their private data, developing products and services on top of their existing infrastructure. Whether a beginner or an expert, the technology is highly flexible, offering multiple entry levels for engaging with this cutting-edge model.
With GenAI Builder, SnapLogic customers can create LLM solutions with the same generative integration platform that automates the complex tasks of building integrations, all in one secure solution that requires no coding.
“Instead of relying on multiple experienced python coders working for days and weeks to create a LLM-based solution, any employee – including those in finance, marketing, HR and other business departments – can now use GenAI Builder to create solutions in a matter of hours. By using natural language prompts to create powerful generative AI solutions while simultaneously connecting disparate data sources, global businesses can save millions and accelerate their LLM projects tenfold.”Greg Benson, Chief Scientist at SnapLogic
Use cases for GenAI Builder
The wave of generative AI is unlocking the power of data across the enterprise, and delivering a new level of innovation for IT to support their business. GenAI Builder provides the ability for either IT or business teams to:
- Rapidly and securely create and deliver digital experiences
- Support the growing demand from business units for new AI driven services
- Add conversational AI co-pilots to existing and new applications through a no-code visual designer and pre-built templates for common use cases
- Securely integrate their data with LLMs, to create powerful RAG applications without coding, ensuring context-specific AI results while safeguarding data integrity
GenAI Builder hosts a simplified setup of plug-and-play models and embeddings, making the technology approachable, even for those with little to no coding experience. It’s an instant and iterative tool that encourages experiential learning as opposed to an arduous technical learning curve.
“We aren’t just stepping into the future with GenAI Builder, we are teleporting businesses there. Product and IT teams now have the ability to rapidly add high-performing conversational interfaces to their most important digital experiences, changing them from basic tools into intelligent collaborative systems, creating an entirely new realm of capabilities for employees, customers, and partners, delivering unprecedented business value.”Jeremiah Stone, Chief Technology Officer at SnapLogic
Considerations for implementing AI
Harnessing the power of AI doesn’t always require an advanced technological understanding — what’s required is understanding the potential, overcoming fear and uncertainty, clearly communicating about the technology and ensuring proper data controls.
Use your existing infrastructure
When it comes to implementing new technologies such as generative AI, it’s crucial to harness the power of existing resources. Some leaders fear that implementing AI technology involves starting entirely from scratch, which can result in missing out on its tremendous potential. We encourage organizations to leverage their existing infrastructure and knowledge whenever implementing such next-gen tech solutions.
Find your internal champions
Identify technical and non-technical “champions” who understand the technology and are willing to stick with it as it matures. Equally crucial is the ability to articulate this understanding and enthusiasm to multiple stakeholders within a company. We recommend mandating internal communications practices around complex technical concepts to ensure everyone, no matter the department, understands the potential of the tool being introduced.
In a world increasingly concerned with data privacy and security, public models and cloud-based services used must come with proper controls and certifications. The use of infrastructure and technology operated by third-party entities should always be conducted under legal and technical oversight to ensure that private data stores aren’t compromised.
The application of this technology will soon become the norm for organizations that want to remain competitive. It’s time to leverage these tools and navigate the organization into the enlightened era of generative AI.
Start building today
GenAI Builder is now available for private beta and will be generally available to all SnapLogic customers in February.
