SnapLogic iPaaS Enables Company to Drastically Shorten Customer Onboarding Time and Gain Faster Time-to-Revenue
SAN MATEO, Calif. — November 10, 2015 — SnapLogic, the industry’s first enterprise integration platform as a service (iPaaS) for big data, today announced that its customer SterlingBackcheck has won a Constellation Research SuperNova Award based on the value gained from its use of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform. With SnapLogic, Sterlingbackcheck shortened the time it took to integrate data and applications from months to weeks, and therefore drastically reduced the time it took to onboard new customers.
The Constellation SuperNova Award is a prestigious award that recognizes leaders who successfully and innovatively overcome the challenges of introducing new technologies to their organizations.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Constellation Research with the SuperNova Award,” said Martin Brodbeck, CTO at SterlingBackcheck. “SnapLogic was instrumental in the outstanding transformation we achieved. SnapLogic has enabled us to eliminate time-consuming and difficult integrations and the platform has become a tremendous value-add to our business, allowing us to be more competitive and provide better customer services as well as decrease our time-to-revenue.”
“The leadership demonstrated by each of the SuperNova Award winners is inspirational. Keep an eye on them—not only can these people keep up with the rapid pace of technological change, they can lead entire organizations to follow these changes. These are the leaders who are making the promise of technology a reality for the enterprise and consequently, the rest of society,” commented R “Ray” Wang, Chairman and Founder of Constellation Research, Inc.
Transitioning from Integration Cost Center to Value-Add iPaaS
SterlingBackcheck was using a combination of homegrown and open-source integration tools for automating transactions with customers. The technology was costly and hard to use, so the company had to assign platform engineers to do the integrations, which took several months to build and required heavy customization—meaning almost everything was a one-off with little or no re-use.
Assigning engineers to integrations took their time away from business-critical work on the company’s platform to add functionality and new services. CTO Martin Brodbeck knew they needed to update their technology strategy and gain a more modern approach to data and application integration that would be faster and easier, ultimately letting engineers focus on the core business.
After looking at various vendors in the market, SterlingBackcheck chose the SnapLogic iPaaS. It provided a single platform for batch, real-time and Big Data integration. The SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform offered high availability and resiliency, and the company was able to outsource integrations to the SnapLogic Services Team.
Moving to an enterprise-class iPaaS instead of hand-coding point-to-point integrations instantly transformed SterlingBackcheck’s technology strategy, allowing the company to more directly support business and revenue goals. The SnapLogic iPaaS has shortened the time it takes to integrate data and applications from weeks to days and has drastically reduced the time it takes to onboard new customers. Another key return was the ability to put 12 engineers back into higher-value tasks that ensure the company stays competitive and delivers premium customer service. The most important ROI from standardizing on SnapLogic has been faster time to revenue.
