Any large business or organisation that wants to manage their workload effectively and with the least amount of room for error might choose the ActiveBatch Automation tool. Being a consultant I feel that It aids in task automation and has the flexibility to change in response to varying company requirements. It helps to save huge time by doing all the repetitive tasks on daily basis. During the patching activity the schedulers can be stopped. It also help by alerting us if any system/job is down so that SLA can be saved. Overall ActiveBatch Automation stands as a dependable cornerstone for ensuring the seamless operation of our tasks.

Snaplogic is unique from other IPASS tools if you're very sensitive about data security as they have an on-premise option where your data never needs to leave your data center. And data pipelines can be quickly created if Snaplogic has the requisite connector to your data sources. On the downside, if you're transforming a large amount of data for example in training machine learning models, a tool with elastic compute capability is more appropriate.
Read full review Pros Businesses can use ActiveBatch to plan tasks based on parameters like frequency, dependencies, and the time of day. By automating typical actions like backups and data transfers, businesses can make sure that crucial operations go off without a hitch. Multiple systems and apps can be used in complicated workflows that ActiveBatch can automate. For instance, it can automate a workflow for processing orders from beginning to end, from the customer order through inventory control and delivery through the processing of invoices and payments. Files can be sent between many platforms and systems safely with ActiveBatch. Transfers to cloud-based storage systems like Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure are also included in this. SFTP and FTP transfers are also included. Read full review Easy access to any type of source system. Data could be in any format. Very beautiful visual representation of transforms that makes it super easy to use it by any non developer. It can be run in cloud or on-premise. helping you choose your comfort of security. Has pretty good customer support and have recently started their community forum as well. Read full review Cons On RARE occasions, have seen scheduling properties changed that don't take effect. Simpler to understand/more robust reporting options would be nice to have. Maybe I'm missing something, but why doesn't the Instances view show completion time? Just execution time and duration. Read full review They need to have a way to connect to GitHub to allow the users to maintain their version control in GitHub. This is a missing functionality. As pipelines become complex, it's difficult to have all the snaps stitched together - just like to see it done differently. They do not have a way to start/stop a preview. This is hard to use, especially if you have to stop an accidental preview invocation. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
This has been hands down the BEST software company I have ever used and dealt with. I am a 25 year IT veteran at this college. They go above and beyond in soliciting our feedback/input and proactively follow up about bugs, issues, etc. I have given multiple potential clients my thoughts and after seeing the SL demo they all sign up. I appreciate their support model, it's REFRESHING!

We can easily add new plans/jobs in our batch schedules. Also, coordination with reporting and QA jobs is simple to do. Building schedules, restarting jobs, triggering dependencies is easy to understand. The system is very stable and allows us to easily see overall processing times.

It is very powerful but has a steep learning curve

My colleague contacted them directly, I only know hearsay on this but it was not good.

They can be prompt but they have not been as useful as I've wanted. We had a bug that affected many of our customers through an API connection between SnapLogic and our platform. Eventually they were able to figure it out, but it took a long time of negotiating between our engineering team and theirs. Additionally, we installed the SnapLogic groundplex for our customers and we've run into a bunch of problems of connectivity. If SnapLogic offered to be on those calls with our clients to troubleshoot how to fix these problems, I would give them a better grade here.

The groundplex in our VPC is very nice for security reasons and the SnapLogic team was extremely helpful during our implementation

We opted for SnapLogic due its ease of use and the flexibility it offers, it was the platform that was strongest in both application integration and data integration and both were use cases we wanted to be able to cover.
Read full review Return on Investment I have not run numbers to determine hard impact, but a quick estimate is that at least one job is running for a average of about 6 hours per day - that 6 hours, if done by hand, would equate to about 30 - 40 hours per day (and in some cases, could not be duplicated manually, as the job repeats faster than a person could accomplish one cycle.) Read full review We have cut development time down by at least 70% The software was more on the expensive side at renewal which required some further approvals to be sought for the spend More developers are able to build and use Snaplogic pipelines in their projects Read full review ScreenShots
