SnapLogic is introducing a series of new innovations to its Intelligent Integration Platform, enabling users across the organization to fully embrace self-service development, integration, and automation.
The latest improvements include self-service for API consumers, enabling organizations to build applications and microservices faster and manage their entire API ecosystem more efficiently with upcoming support for third party APIs; the ability to build data products faster and accelerate analytics projects with enhanced support for leading data warehouse tools; and added features for SnapLogic Flows, the company’s self-service user interface for non-technical business users.
Combined, these enhancements further advance SnapLogic’s position as the leading platform provider to help organizations with a hybrid- or multi-cloud environment successfully implement their enterprise-wide integration, automation, and self-service visions, according to the vendor.
“One of our core principles at SnapLogic is to make our platform rapidly accessible and easy to use by an entire organization, regardless of individual technical backgrounds. The ability to support self-service for all users and workflows is fundamental to the way enterprises will operate in the future,” said Vaikom Krishnan, chief product officer at SnapLogic. “The ability to design and consume APIs easily and build applications, microservices, and data products faster, while providing broader and more efficient management of the entire environment will make organizations more agile and effective. At the same time, by supporting increased collaboration between business and IT, development bottlenecks are eliminated, resulting in greater productivity and faster outcomes.”
SnapLogic’s innovative Flows interface has been designed to give business users what they need to embrace self-service and build their own integrations and automations as needed to support their business goals.
To continue to provide the functionality needed to make this process easy and intuitive for all users, SnapLogic is adding pipeline extensions, and new connections to popular sales and marketing endpoints such as Microsoft Dynamics for Sales, Microsoft Teams, and Microsoft SharePoint.
With new connections to these sales and marketing endpoints, business users can build integrations within the new systems, without IT needing to be involved.
Pipeline extensions enable better collaboration between business and IT users, helping business users leverage data endpoints and systems that are in the IT domain or ones that are not yet available in Flows, while giving IT an efficient management tool where they retain access to key systems and approve certain apps for use by business users.
In January, SnapLogic is adding simplified webhooks to Flows which enable business users to act on events in real-time without having to rely on specialists to write code. These simplified webhooks help business users respond to market changes faster and deliver superior customer service.
SnapLogic simplifies the creation and ongoing management of APIs with this release. With the importance of APIs continuing to grow within the enterprise, it is critical for teams to have the tools they need to properly manage their development and roll-out. At the same time, it is just as important to companies’ self-service visions that API access and development power be given to business users.
To support these dual goals, SnapLogic has enhanced the API developer portal that now empowers API consumers with the ability to create accounts, subscribe to APIs, and get notified when their request is approved or their key is renewed.
This enables IT teams to remove themselves from ongoing API user management, which can be tedious and time-consuming, while allowing them the visibility needed to maintain oversight, governance, and security.
By February, SnapLogic’s Intelligent Integration Platform will also feature management support for third party APIs, enabling users to manage administration of any API, regardless of where it was created, through a single gateway. This also enables consistent security and traffic control policies to be applied, regardless of the API origin.
SnapLogic now supports all leading cloud data warehouses, with new support for Google BigQuery, Google’s serverless, highly-scalable cloud data warehouse.
In addition, enhanced Snap Packs for Microsoft Azure, Amazon, and Snowflake have been added, continuing SnapLogic’s commitment to helping users unlock the power of their data quickly and easily, no matter where that data may be located.
