SnapLogic updates Intelligent Integration Platform

SnapLogic announced new capabilities to its Intelligent Integration Platform. The updates and enhancements enable users across the organization to embrace self-service development, integration, and automation, to improve speed, efficiency, and productivity gains.

The latest improvements include self-service for API consumers, to enable organizations to build applications and microservices faster and manage their 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 data warehouse tools; and added features for SnapLogic Flows, the company’s self-service user interface for non-technical business users. To provide the functionality needed to make this process easy for all users, SnapLogic is adding pipeline extensions, and new connections to sales and marketing endpoints such as Microsoft Dynamics for Sales, Microsoft Teams, and Microsoft SharePoint.

Customers who use Google BigQuery can now leverage SnapLogic’s visual ELT (extract, load, and transform) capabilities to push down transformations to their cloud data warehouse. Data engineers won’t have to write complex SQLs to transform data. Enhanced Snap Packs for Microsoft Azure, Amazon, and Snowflake have been added.

MACH Alliance announces MongoDB and Netlify as members

MACH Alliance announced a new category of “Enabler” membership and MongoDB and Netifly as the first two members. The new category applies to organizations that are heavily utilized by MACH organizations to deliver a MACH service or technology. They are, therefore, enabling a MACH provider but don’t offer a direct MACH solution. As such, they aren’t suited for an Alliance membership in the Vendor or System Integrator categories. While a Vendor member produces an application that enterprises can buy, an Enabler member delivers a service or technology vendors can use as part of a MACH integration.

There are two types of Enabler groups:

  • Technology Enablers are Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) that MACH vendors utilize to deliver their service. They are enabling MACH ISVs and aiding the promotion of the MACH architecture.
  • Service Enablers are service organizations that are stakeholders in MACH projects (like a specialized design agency could be) but may not have a direct involvement in implementing a MACH solution.

All Enablers are aligned to the non-functional areas of a MACH architecture. This includes, but is not limited to monitoring, data storage, cluster or container management, tracing, service meshing, API Gateways and orchestration.

Gilbane Advisor 12-8-21 — analytics blues, future cloud

This week we have articles from Erik Bernhardsson, and Roger Martin. News comes from RWS / Tridion, Optimizely and Welcome, MongoDB, eccenca, and Quantinuum.


Opinion / Analysis

Singing the data analytics blues

It just ain’t what it is cracked up to be… I get a seemingly endless flow of complaints about Data Analytics (DA for short), even though it is the hottest thing in business these days. Why isn’t DA giving me the insights that it is supposed to provide? We have a DA team now, but the little startups keep figuring stuff out before us and beating us?

Roger Martin has essential reminders for some of us, and a handy short piece for all to share with colleagues who are asking questions like these.

How the cloud will be reshuffled

Though cloud computing is not at all new, is a large and growing market, and is dominated by Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, how it will evolve is unclear. Just as cloud computing makes it possible for startups to jump start, and enterprises to slash some infrastructure costs, it adds cost and complexity to software engineering, and adds future lock-in and data integration and repatriation risks. In addition, while the big three will likely remain entrenched at the lowest level of the computing stack, we don’t know who will share the other layers, or how they will overlap. Erik Bernhardsson has a theory worth checking out, and includes link to his critics.
