SnapLogic Intros AI Powered Integration Platform
November 14, 2018
has extended its integration platform with new AI-powered intelligent
workflows automating all stages of IT integration projects – design,
development, deployment, and maintenance. These intelligent workflows,
coupled with SnapLogic’s self-service user experience, simplify and
accelerate projects across application integration, data integration,
and data engineering.
SnapLogic Data Science, a new self-service solution to accelerate the
development and deployment of machine learning with minimal coding.
New API management capabilities enabling full API lifecycle management
and automating API traffic control, developer management, advanced
analytics, threat detection, and more.
New B2B integration capabilities enabling customers to automate key
business processes with external partners and create a standard method
for communicating and exchanging information about business activities
with suppliers, partners, and customers.
New Data Catalog capabilities providing organizations improved data
governance by enabling better visibility and transparency into their
Bringing Intelligent Workflows to Data Engineering Projects
SnapLogic was first to apply powerful AI capabilities to application and
data integration, and with today’s introduction of SnapLogic Data
Science, the company again breaks new ground by extending its platform
to bring intelligence-powered integration workflows to data engineering
and data science projects. Now, IT, data engineers, and data science
teams can achieve higher productivity by leveraging a visual,
drag-and-drop interface to rapidly build and deploy end-to-end machine
learning models with minimal coding.
With the addition of SnapLogic Data Science, organizations now have a
complete, self-service platform to manage a diverse range of application
integration, data integration, and data engineering projects -- key for
CIOs and IT teams who seek to standardize on a single integration
platform across the enterprise to drive productivity and efficiencies.
Consider a common challenge for airlines – reducing incidents of lost
passenger luggage. When a passenger bag goes missing, first the airline
must cross-reference several applications and systems to find the
missing bag, a typical application integration task. Then, the airline
might load this lost bag incident into a cloud data warehouse to run
analytics on it, and compare it amongst other lost bag cases, to
determine why this latest bag was lost, a traditional data integration
task. Finally, with key learnings identified and analyzed, the airline
might then build machine learning algorithms to automatically predict
when and where the next bag might be lost, a data science task.
SnapLogic can manage all of these integration processes on a single,
intelligent platform, eliminating the need for CIOs and IT teams to
manage multiple integration platforms.
Similarly, organizations can leverage intelligent workflows across
application integration, data integration, and data engineering to apply
predictive models to solve pressing challenges across the business. For
example, HR leaders can predict and then work to prevent employee churn,
sales and marketing can spot unhappy customers and resolve issues before
they escalate, and security teams can bring multiple data streams
together to prevent or mitigate security threats or violations. Doing so
on a single, unified integration platform boosts productivity while
“Modern CIOs and IT decision-makers want to assemble and orchestrate a
custom, best-of-breed application environment that best suits their
unique strategy, what we refer to as building an ‘ERP of One,’” said
Gaurav Dhillon, CEO at SnapLogic. “To do this right, in a cost-effective
way that will also scale, CIOs require a single, self-service
integration platform with baked-in intelligence that will handle all of
their complex application, data, and machine learning integration
projects. Our customers expect us to push the boundaries around how
intelligent integration can simplify and accelerate their transformation
initiatives, and we’re incredibly proud to deliver our latest
breakthrough platform innovations.”
“As a leader in commodities, our success is contingent on simple and
secure access to real-time, quality data," said Chris Throop, Global
Head of Data Science at CCI. "Data powers our business – from physical
and financial trading, to logistics optimization, to infrastructure
development – and we lean on our trusted data partners to ensure our
global teams are working from a single source of truth across all our
initiatives. We standardized on SnapLogic as the engine behind our
mission-critical enterprise-wide data warehouse due to the ease of use,
broad range of capability, and superior performance of its platform."
New Innovations in November 2018 Platform Release
In addition to SnapLogic Data Science, the November 2018 Release of the
SnapLogic platform introduces a number of new and enhanced capabilities,
including API management, B2B integration, and data catalog additions.
"Our team at Boston University is looking forward to leveraging the new
functionality in the latest release of the SnapLogic platform,
particularly the new API management additions, enhancements to the
Runtime Archive, and the new Machine Learning Snap Pack," said Carmine
A. Granucci, assistant director of integration at Boston University. "We
are continually impressed with how SnapLogic collaborates with us on new
enhancements to their platform which helps drive success in our
New capabilities in the November 2018 Release include:
API Management: new API management capabilities allow organizations
to build out a digital ecosystem for internal and external parties to
derive value from their APIs. Internal parties, such as employees, can
satisfy new use-cases leveraging existing APIs, while external parties,
including partners and customers, can gain access to the organization’s
APIs to achieve their business goals. As a result, organizations have a
better way to manage the full lifecycle of their APIs. SnapLogic API
Management helps organizations with API traffic control, developer
management, advanced analytics, threat detection, and more. Enterprises
have previously benefited from the SnapLogic platform’s ability to
create APIs without the need for hand-coding APIs whenever integrations
are needed. Now, organizations can maximize the use of these APIs across
the organization so that employees, partners, and customers can use them
without having to recreate those APIs from scratch.
Integration: new B2B integration capabilities enable customers to
automate key business processes with external partners and create a
standard method for communicating and exchanging information about
business activities with suppliers, partners, and customers. For
example, traditionally onboarding trading partners is a long, complex
process where partners would have to alter the business processes they
had in place as each trading partner was likely to follow different
document formats and protocols based on their specific industry.
SnapLogic’s new B2B integration capabilities simplify this process,
making it easy for integrators or line of business users to execute B2B
integrations on their own without specialized tools or training.
Organizations enjoy higher levels of productivity without the wait for
B2B specialists to manage the process workflows and maintain legacy B2B
Data Catalog: this new capability improves data governance within the
SnapLogic platform by providing customers better visibility and
transparency into their organization’s data.
In addition, the latest release of SnapLogic’s integration platform
includes new support for Workday Prism Analytics, new and enhanced Snaps
for Snowflake, and new connectors for Hive.
