Really Simple Integration
SnapLogic 2.0 enables “Really Simple Integration,” a new approach to data integration that leverages RESTful Web technology to provide agile data integration solutions for business IT groups. Really Simple Integration enables enterprises to quickly and easily make data from databases, SaaS applications, SOA Web services, and other common data sources readily available for use by business analysts and other business users. In the Really Simple Integration paradigm, knowledge workers use familiar tools, including Web browsers, Google, and Excel, to discover, consume, transform, and publish enterprise data, creating a virtuous cycle of self-service data access and distribution.
SnapLogic Data Integration Framework
The SnapLogic data integration framework consists of a SnapLogic Server and SnapLogic Components, which perform access and transformation functions such as reading and processing data from databases, enterprise applications, XML documents, files and even web pages. SnapLogic Components are configured into SnapLogic Resources, which are linked together to form SnapLogic Pipelines. Each SnapLogic Pipeline performs a data integration task, such as reading data from a data warehouse, reformatting it, and writing it to a database. A growing collection of free SnapLogic Components and Pipelines is available at www.snaplogic.org.
