SnapLogic announced new pre-built intelligent connectors for SAP Analytics Cloud to enrich enterprise business intelligence, planning and predictive analytics in the cloud.
Additionally, SnapLogic announced advanced support for Docker to help DevOps teams automate their Snaplex deployments using container management infrastructure. These latest updates to the SnapLogic Enterprise Integration Cloud – together with recently-announced integration with the Apigee Edge API Platform and newly-available connectors for Adobe Cloud Platform – underscore SnapLogic’s commitment to simplifying and accelerating data and application integration for leading organizations around the world.
Breaking silos and streamlining access to data across disparate sources has become critical to enterprises as they shift to data-centric business models. With the new SAP Analytics Cloud Snap Pack, enterprises can easily analyze and visualize business-critical data from hundreds of application and data sources (including Salesforce, Workday, and NetSuite) to enable users across all functions to obtain real-time insights and make better decisions faster. From finance professionals analyzing sales forecasts from multiple regions, to CRM managers visualizing the ROI from various marketing campaigns, to product leaders identifying profit and losses from diverse product lines, now all users can trust the completeness and accuracy of the data they are analyzing when making key business decisions.
“As enterprises accumulate overwhelming amounts of data from an explosion of applications, mobile, and IoT devices, it is critical for businesses to manage and analyze that data effectively and distribute that insight immediately across the business,” said Craig Stewart, VP of Product Management at SnapLogic. “With the SnapLogic SAP Analytics Cloud Snap Pack, we enable customers to feed data from anywhere into their SAP Analytics Cloud, empowering every business unit with enriched intelligence and analytics.”
With the May 2018 release, SnapLogic is also introducing Docker container support for Snaplex deployments. Now, SnapLogic customers can run nodes much more quickly in Docker containers, speeding up the time to delivery and improving their existing DevOps processes and infrastructure management in a Docker container environment.
The May 2018 release also includes new engineered integration with the Apigee Edge API Platform and new connectors for Adobe Cloud Platform. In addition, to coincide with the May 2018 release, SnapLogic earlier this month introduced its new big data in the cloud solution, SnapLogic eXtreme.
