This week SnapLogic posted a presentation of the 10 Modern Data Integration Platform Requirements on the company’s blog. They are:
- Application integration is done primarily through REST & SOAP services
- Large-volume data integration is available to Hadoop-based data lakes or cloud-based data warehouses
- Integration has to support the continuum of data velocities starting from batch all the way to continuous streams
- Integration is event-based rather than clock-driven
- Integration is primarily document- centric
- Integration is hybrid and spans cloud-cloud and cloud-ground scenarios
- Integration itself has to be accessible through SOAP/REST APIs
- Integration is all about connectivity… connectivity connectivity
- Integration has to be elastic
- Integration has to be delivered as a service
I’ve embedded the presentation below.
SnapLogic published Eight Data Management Requirements for the Enterprise Data Lake. They are:
- Storage and Data Formats
- Ingest and Delivery
- Discovery and Preparation
- Transformation and Analytics
- Scheduling and Workflow
- Metadata and Governance
The post originally appeared on ITBusinessEdge as a slide show. The company also recently hosted a webinar on Democratizing the Data Lake with Constellation Research and published 2 whitepapers from Mark Madsen.
Last week SnapLogic posted the company’s mission on their blog, which is focused on accelerating how enterprise integration technology is delivered in the enterprise. The company is growing rapidly and hiring. Here is the their mission statement:
It’s time to rethink integration.
Integrating data and applications with legacy products is slowing down your business.
What you’re running now is no longer running fast enough for today’s business needs.
But what if you could eliminate the pain of integration and get to its promise?
To prioritize outcomes over process.
To enable your enterprise with a modern solution.
With SnapLogic you can.
SnapLogic brings all your data together, at incredible speeds and
with an ease never known before.
Data, applications, and APIs—from any source, anywhere.
Instead of coding, you merely drag and drop intelligent connectors in the cloud.
They fit together seamlessly.
In a snap.
You’ll connect faster and more efficiently, enabling you to become a more agile business.
Whether it’s maximizing investments in big data, or getting new products to market faster.
Whatever your enterprise strategy, SnapLogic gets you there easier and quicker.
And wasn’t that what integration was supposed to do in the first place?
Don’t let your legacy integration solution be your legacy.
It’s time to let go of those old ideas.
It’s time to operate at the speed of modern business.

I recently participated in an online web conference called Cloudcon 2015: Integration and Web APIs where I reviewed 5 signs you need better cloud integration:
- You’re Struggling with the Integrator’s Dilemma
- You Have Unintegrated Integration:
- You Thought Cloud = API Utopia
- You Still Have Swivel Chair Integration
- You’re Considering Going Back to On-Prem Due to Diminishing SaaS Returns
It’s a topic I wrote about in this blog post last year. Here’s the recording of the presentation, which also includes an overview of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform and a Q&A session with Vance McCarthy from Integration Developer News.
This week Carl Lehmann from 451 Research reviewed the trends, best practices and reference architecture for integration platform as a service (iPaaS) and hybrid cloud integration. Here’s the presentation, which also includes an overview of SnapLogic’s Elastic Integration Platform.
Recently I hosted a SnapLogic webinar featuring the company’s co-founder and CEO, Gaurav Dhillon, and industry analyst, author and practitioner David Linthicum called: The Death of Traditional Data Integration. The webinar was very well attended and the discussion was quite lively. I’ve posted sections of the transcript on the SnapLogic blog, you can also listen to the podcast on the company’s iTunes channel, and the slides are now on Slideshare. I’ve embedded the YouTube video below. Enjoy!
Here’s an an infographic from SnapLogic that reviews some the drivers and requirements for cloud-based integration, also known as Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), as well as reasons why legacy technologies won’t be able to keep up with the need for speed.
