7 Things You Should Know About SnapLogic’s Elastic Integration Platform

In a series of recent posts on the SnapLogic blog, I’ve been reviewing the primary requirements of a modern integration platform. In this post I outlined some of the key principles behind SnapLogic’s Elastic Integration Platform, as well as the most popular posts on the blog. (Not surprisingly, 3 of the 5 most popular posts were written by the company’s Chief Scientist.)

The presentation below provides an overview of 7 things you should know about SnapLogic’s elastic integration platform as a service (iPaaS):

6 Requirements of a Modern Integration Platform

In 2009 I worked with data and application integration guru David Linthicum on a whitepaper called, “What to Look for When Evaluating Cloud Integration Solutions.” The 6 requirements were:

  1. True multitenant versus hosted offering
  2. Ease of use
  3. Try and buy / rapid deployment
  4. IT or LOB usability
  5. Scalability
  6. Vendor viability

While I don’t think I’d change this list too much in 2014, I’ve been putting together a series of posts on the SnapLogic blog summarizing the requirements of a modern integration platform. Now commonly known as integration platform as a service (iPaaS), the 6 primary requirements are:

  1. Fully-Functional Cloud-based Service (based on a Software-Defined Architecture)
  2. Single Platform for Big Data, Application and API Integration
  3. Elastic Scale
  4. Built on Modern Standards (REST, JSON)
  5. Broad Cloud and On-Premises Connectivity
  6. Self-Service for Citizen Integrators

Let me know if you agree or disagree with the list. I’ve embedded a demonstration of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform below if this is an area of cloud computing that is new to you.

Still Stuggling with SaaS Silos?

Got SaaS? Salesforce? ServiceNow? Workday? Zuora? Amazon Redshift?

What about on-premises apps? SAP? Oracle? Microsoft Dynamics?

Don’t forget social media, big data, identity management, online storage and cloud analytics solutions…

I summarized 5 signs you need to re-think your cloud integration strategy on the SnapLogic blog today. Here’s an overview:

Talking Cloud Integration at #DF13

Here’s a quick interview I did with Matt Childs from Vidcaster on the show floor at Dreamforce 2013:

Last week I interviewed Jeff Kaplan from THINKstrategies to get his views on the conference and what was announced. Some of the highlights are here. The slides we reviewed are below.

Unfinished Business: Gaurav Dhillon Introduces @SnapLogic Integration Cloud

Gaurav Dhillon co-founded Informatica in 1992 and ran the company until 2004. In 2006 he co-founded SnapLogic, a data integration start-up in San Mateo, California. In 2010 he took over as the company’s Chairman and CEO and re-focused the company on tackling the emerging cloud data and application integration challenge in the enterprise.

Today SnapLogic introduced the SnapLogic Integration Cloud, with a focus on three key areas:

You can read more about the Winter 2014 release of the multi-tenant integration platform as a service (iPaaS) here. Here’s a video of Gaurav introducing the company out summarizing the importance of the right approach to cloud data and application integration in the API economy. He’s also presenting on that topic on a GigaOM webinar with David Linthicum later this week.
