Data lakes undoubtedly have the potential to transform businesses by being the singular repository of all organizational data, structured, unstructured, internal, and external. Their ability to mine data scattered across a myriad of operational systems, warehouses, and data marts is also unquestionable.
However, enterprises are faced with innumerable ‘what’s and ‘how’s even as they overcome the ‘why’s, just as expected while adopting any in-trend technology.
One of the most pressing challenges is picking the right technology to build data lakes. This blog explores some of the reasons why CIOs increasingly recommend SnapLogic to build AWS data lakes.
True Data Integration Experience:
With the wide variety of connectors called “Snaps”, SnapLogic is undoubtedly a true system & data integration platform. SnapLogic seamlessly integrates with multiple and different sources, within few steps (drag, drop & configure). The Snaps enable the easy integration of data from on-premises to cloud.
Speed & Ease-of-use
SnapLogic control plan provides easy user access with code development, execution monitoring & configuration management in a single interface. The control plan provides the users with speed of development and deployment, a proven key advantage of SnapLogic.
SnapLogic also boasts excellent on-demand scalability. Moreover, with the growth of Big Data space, the addition of new snaps & functionality makes it extremely customer-friendly and the go-to-tool for newcomers in the industry.
The platform and its features enable faster and more efficient performance of advanced integration patterns. SnapLogic renders reusable design patterns, which is a valuable business advantage in the long run. It also enables non-technical business users to onboard data in just a few clicks for analytics.
SnapLogic’s intuitive control plan lets users to quickly adopt the platform. Employing snaps instead of functions, SnapLogic enables data visualization via the building blocks of integration. This is apparently a huge advantage for developers in connecting to various business systems and rapid product integration.
The pre-built patterns configurable with automatically generated steps, accelerate cloud adoption. They include quicker data load into Amazon S3 bucket and kicking off the Amazon Redshift import process in a single step.
Snaps also facilitate easy replication for data synchronization and visual designing of data operations using a core-set of snaps. They also enable execution of sophisticated extract, transform and load (ETL) operations without any coding.
The Web-based SnapLogic’s control plan hosted in AWS environment is secured and does not store any data outside the client firewall. The SnapLogic Integration Cloud is protected by AWS’ comprehensive security with all the certifications that it engenders, along with built in SnapLogic security.
The highly secured and scalable environments are hosted in 3 different environments: Groundplex, Hadooples and Cloudplex. This is one of the distinguishing factors that make SnapLogic the most preferred integration tool while building data lakes, where both security and scalability are equally key concerns.
With the increase in data explosion, there is a fast collision of applications and data integrations. With SnapLogic Ultra Pipelines, real time integration is nearly real, guaranteeing 100% data delivery. Seamless integration Is possible with various sources like Workday, Web services, Hadoop Environment etc. Also, SnapLogic Ultra Pipelines deliver up to 10x performance boost over earlier versions by a couple of main innovations.
As more and more organizations move into the cloud, it is bound to become mainstream. With all the above said advantages and benefits, SnapLogic is definitely at the forefront to enable a seamless transition into the cloud.
