SnapLogic announced a series of innovations to its Intelligent Integration Platform. These updates and enhancements enable users across the organization to fully embrace self-service development, integration, and automation, resulting in speed, efficiency, and productivity gains for IT and business teams.
The latest improvements include self-service for API consumers; 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.
“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 Flows – Pipeline Extensions and Expanded Connectivity
SnapLogic’s Flows interface helps business users embrace self-service and build their own integrations and automations as needed to support their business goals. To continue to provide this functionality, 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 involvement.
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.
API Management – Increasing Productivity
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 rollout. 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.
