We purchased this product to:
- Reduce time to market.
- Improve business process agility.
- Improve business process outcomes.
- Drive innovation.
- Create internal/operational efficiencies.
  • Ease of system use
  • All-you-can eat model
  • Good support and consultancy
  • There is a disconnect between resource utilisation displayed on the dashboard and what it actually is, that can be improved.
SnapLogic has worked really well for us because it has offered complete flexibility to integrate against a diverse systems landscape. As we opted for the fully managed option (with Cloudplexes) it was easy to set up and maintain. It is also relatively easy to use resulting in low barrier to entry for new users - my team of data engineers was able to start up and delivery quickly.

We built data integration pipelines from S3 to Redshift, DynamoDB to Redshift, MSSQL AWS RDS to Redshift, as well as SQS queue systems. Generally, these were Change Data Capture solutions. In other work, we also moved data from Redshift to external services like sales, HR, and operational systems: Salesforce, SAP, Acqeon, etc. SnapLogic has helped our organization centralize and consolidate our data in a unified way under a single framework.
  • Extract transform load
  • AWS service integration
  • ETL development environment
  • Git integration outside of Github (Bitbucket, and other git service providers)
  • I would like to see an improved way to perform unit testing within the SnapLogic framework, as opposed to the manual approach
  • I would prefer that the underlying source of SnapLogic pipelines be more human-readable, although it is a GUI approach to authoring pipelines
Well suited for incrementally moving data between systems. As for the movement of big data, SnapLogic expects you to delegate this to EMR or some sort of external spark executor, this should be kept in mind for the ETL of large amounts of data; however, working database tables works just fine.
We were given deep support whenever we needed it. Whether on how to use the tool right, or to help track issues.

Snaplogic is the core product that we use to move data from various sources, whether on-premise or in the cloud, to our data lake in Snowflake. Its use is expanding company-wide from engineering to finance and sales operations. This can be attributed to Snaplogic's graphical user interface which uses a jigsaw puzzle metaphor and makes the product accessible to business users as well as engineers. Snaplogic provides the monitoring and logging tools that allow us to track all data movement in one central location. A major selling point that distinguishes Snaplogic from many competitors is the availability of an on-premise node called a Groundplex as well as a cloud-based node called a Cloudplex. This hybrid configuration precludes the need to punch holes in the firewall and keeps sensitive data inside.
  • Has an on-premise solution named Groundplex to access sensitive internal data as well as a cloud solution named Cloudplex for external data? And you can use both Groundplex and Cloudplex for a completely secure solution for sensitive data.
  • The GUI based Designer uses an intuitive jigsaw puzzle metaphor.
  • Has a wide selection of connectors to a variety data sources ranging from an Oracle database to a web destinations using a REST API.
  • Has own version system, but no support for de facto git repositories.
  • Has XML support, but does not support XML mixed content.
  • Has support for Data Science with several ML snap packs, but computation power is inherently limited on Snaplogic nodes. To handle large data sets, computing needs to be elastic and thus ML is more suited for other systems.
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.

SnapLogic is used as an Integration platform in our Organization. For any kind of Data Integration here at our organization, we use SnapLogic. we have taken two Org as part of the license here for all development activity along with Feed master as well for real-time Integration. SnapLogic is the best iPaas you can say for normal and complex Integration as well for real-time / Batch / Adhoc / Scheduling / Event-based Jobs. SnapLogic uses various scripts as well which helps us to achieve anything and transform as part of the Business requirement. In short, I would say this is the best Integration platform for Data Integration.
  • Realtime Integration
  • Cron jobs Execution
  • Snap / Connectors provided by SnapLogic
  • Documentation available on SnapLogic Confluence Page
  • Provinding capabiliites to their client
  • SnapLogic support SLA
  • Readymade documents / re-usable SnapLogic codes to their clients which can save time and effort.
  • SnapLogic certification

RedEye leverages SnapLogics technology to help streamline our workloads. Our engineers can rapidly prototype bespoke client integrations, this saves us crucial development and increases our speed of delivery.
  • Simple and easy to use interface.
  • Lots of integrations out of the box (snap packs).
  • On hand technical support.
  • Additional snap packs especially around social elements, Google, Twitter, etc.
  • Examples of best practice such as debug techniques, dealing with parallelisation.
  • Live support.
As a configuration as a code tool, SnapLogic stands up very well in this space. It has plentiful integrations and generic ones which allow you to bridge the gap when you find there isn't a handcrafted pack already available, in essence, there's always a way to achieve what you're trying to do.

We use SnapLogic as the firm's main data integration platform, with all the main systems connected to each other via SnapLogic. We had various types of data sources within our organization (files stored on networks, SQL databases, APIs) which needed to be centralized and exposed to other consumer applications and SnapLogic was the solution that made this possible in a very robust and flexible way. A truly iPaaS product, SnapLogic allows us to connect data endpoints with ease, in a very logical and functional way.
  • Connects various type of data sources to destination endpoints.
  • Easy to use, no heavy coding required.
  • Good overall monitoring of integrations via centralized Dashboard view.
  • Constantly updated and improved over a reasonable time frame.
  • Error handling and documentation around it should be more specific and in depth.
  • Some reported features that need fix/improvement are not brought fast enough in the product's general upgrade cycle.
SnapLogic is suitable for environments where the data sources are of mixed type (SQL, File, API) and you need fast and easy integration between systems using those data sources. SnapLogic is not suitable when dealing with very complex and specific data transformations where a lot of coding is required. Their scripting functionality is limited.

SnapLogic is used in our organization to integrate Product Master Data with various systems and with a Kafka implementation in between. The biggest problem solved by SnapLogic is the ability to put many different endpoints speaking to each other with the correct format of the data and on a Streaming basis instead of a Batch basis.
  • The ease of development and analysis of integration processes thanks to the heavily visual user interface.
  • The ability to see the integrated documents step by step between the Snaps.
  • The integrated dashboard capabilities.
  • The inability to predict how much processing power one will need before purchase.
  • Log file viewing and analysis not very linear in my opinion.
  • How to guides are scarce and could explore Snaps' configuration more deeply.
For an environment with many different endpoints, some on-prem and some on the cloud, SnapLogic really helps in bringing all of them together and integrating their data. It also behaves well with large volumes of data and can be a great addition to a Streaming Platform such as Kafka. Perhaps not so appropriate for small scope use-cases.

We use SnapLogic for data process and management. It is a key piece of software to integrate third-party software between each other and/or into our homebuilt software.
  • SnapLogic has great built in tools.
  • SnapLogic has a great ease of use.
  • SnapLogic manages data quickly and secure.
  • SnapLogic UI is not always the most intuitive.
We have tried other tools and no one is as good as snapLogic. It is easy to understand and to use. And it does very well, what it is supposed to do. When you get into more edge cases it can be a little bit frustrating. But even in those cases, support is great and it will give you all to fix your issue.

Snaplogic was brought in during our migration from Oracle Ebiz on Prem to Oracle HCM cloud. During that same time, we also implemented Okta with custom IDM hooks to both Oracle HCM and Ellucian Banner. We had a spaghetti integration structure, integrations all over the place and not well monitored. We have since implemented Snaplogic and are now seeing significant ROI on our integrations as well as begun to develop in-house APIs for use across the campus. We are looking to expand the platform into Data Warehousing in the coming year or two.
  • Pricing.
  • Support and Customer Follow-up.
  • Almost limitless integration ability.
  • UI, little hard to learn.
  • Training.
  • User conference.
Snaplogic has the BEST pricing model in the industry. There are no excessive "end-point" pricing or # of API call-only pricing models. They allow for on-premise hosting of their Nodes, which gives us the flexibility t expand endpoints and API calls without massive budget overruns. They listen to their customers and meet with us monthly to go over release notes AND ask for feedback/issues/tickets we have faced in the last month to address them. I've never seen another vendor do this in my 25 years of IT. The Snaplogic UI has a steep learning curve and its UI isn't the best. It's not as easy as say a Tray.io or Zapier but it is much more fully-featured. Snaplogic realized their gap and has since released Snaplogic Flows (Zapier, point, and click) integrations.

SnapLogic has been an integral part of our company's digital transformation from an on-prem solution to a SaaS model. Our engineering teams use SnapLogic to unify our new services to existing services and data/tables to ensure that our customer experience is optimal from a data pull capability perspective, as well as the efficiency of the load times and service calls as we continue to prioritize our roadmaps. Overall, SnapLogic has let us innovate at speed as we grow and support our existing and new customers with existing and new services.
  • Easy tool to build the pipelines
  • Great error monitoring capabilities
  • Updated UI
  • Readily available documents to support our Risk and Compliance Team
Ability to tie in legacy data tables and services with new, more modern data storage and micro-services for companies that are transforming their model and need to support existing and new customers.

We use SnapLogic in the engineering department. My team, the data engineering team, is the primary user of SnapLogic. SnapLogic allows us to load in data from all of our external sources into a single source, our datamart, which we then use for business analysis.
  • SnapLogic is great at connecting quickly to an external source.
  • SnapLogic is great at building complex logic into ETL pipelines
  • SnapLogic is great at connecting to many different external sources and bringing the data together into a single source
  • SnapLogic has many UI weaknesses that make working in it daily pretty frustrating
  • SnapLogic has trouble connecting to certain external sources that it has specific snaps for which is frustrating
  • SnapLogic has a hard time abstracting out complex pipelines in order to reuse them without having to copy and paste
SnapLogic is well suited for business analysts or engineers who are looking for a fast and easy way to load in data from external sources. It is not great for real-time updates to large datasets or for large rebuilds of data. It is not great for abstracting out a process that you want to reuse in many different scenarios.
SnapLogic product support is great and the community is good. The documentation could be a bit better, especially free training videos on how to use the product.

We use SL in a Citizen Integrator approach. This helps reduce the time to implement by reducing the interactions and accelerating the development. In a few days, a solution can be built, covering several endpoints requirements such as FTP or API.
  • Reduce time to market
  • Low code
  • Strong user community
  • Product functionality and performance
  • Error detection and Debug may be not so easy
  • Ticket/incident submission could be imbedded in the solution
SnapLogic as data integration and Kafka as a data streaming is just the perfect combination. Not aware of a better combination.

We are using Snaplogic across ITV to support a vast number of integration use cases to support our Digital Transformation strategy. Within our Salesforce team, we did not have the technical resources or tools to be able to tackle integration items on our roadmap. We used to outsource the work to various developers to build point-to-point integrations which were difficult to scale and maintain. We moved to Snaplogic 2 years ago, which has been instrumental in empowering non-developers to become citizen developers - by using Snaplogic the team has been able to build out multiple integrations between different systems, using a variety of integration protocols to suit each use case.
  • Offers a simple and logic to use visual interface, with real-time feedback and validation.
  • East to use branded connectors, simplifying the connection to well-known applications using the language of the application
  • Great community, always offering help and tips when building pipelines
  • Some of the Snaplogic University courses are great, but there is not enough, I would like to see a larger range of video tutorials and perhaps something more interactive training like that of the trailhead.
Well suited if you have a mix of legacy systems and mature SaaS / API-based integrations. When you don't have a vast pool of development resources and integration architects, enables a lot of users to hit the ground running and start building out integrations using just configuration tools. When you need to schedule both parent and child processes to work wither each other. If you want an easy to use interface, with real-time validation and data previewing so you can identify errors before you deploy your integration solution

We use SnapLogic to integrate data from our business systems into our data stack, to integrate our applications as a central integration point, and also to allow us to automate previously manual tasks such as file transfers to external vendors.
  • Ease of setting up integrations via graphical user interface
  • Monitoring of configured pipelines and integrations via dashboard
  • Performance and reliability of configured pipelines
  • Configuration of accounts / permissions can be clunky
  • Assets can build up in environment folders and be hard to manage / track down
Snaplogic is an easy-to-use and well-designed application, it makes simple integrations easy to create via its interface and also allows more complex and detailed jobs to be set up with additional settings and customization. It can be used by bothering higher-level business users and low-level technical users to achieve business objectives.

SnapLogic is an easy-to-learn solution that reduced the delivery time of our integrations and improved its reliability. We use it to integrate the ERP with a CRM and many other applications in our ecosystem. The pre-built connectors are powerful and simplified the development of integrations across many different applications. The transformation tools are flexible and allowed to easily transfer of different and complex data structures across the systems.
  • Powerful and flexibe connectors for the main data sources and applications in the market.
  • The interface is easy to use and intuitive.
  • User support is really helpful and engaged.
  • Data transformation tools are useful.
  • Update logs could be more clearer and detailed.
  • Run time error handling is limited and some messages are too generic.
  • There are no pre built connectors for less known apps in the market.
SnapLogic is an easy-to-learn solution that helped improve the delivery time of our integrations. There are many pre-built connectors with powerful functionalities for the main applications available in the market and some generic connectors that can be customized.

SnapLogic is currently being used by the organization as its main data integration tool in our data architecture. It is used to bulk load data from various data sources widely dispersed throughout the Caribbean, and store in our Snowflake data lake. We also utilize SnapLogic on a major compliance project which requires heavy transformations of financial data for reporting.
  • The ease of use being drag and drop ability to designing and developing data pipelines.
  • It cuts down development time by more than 70% over coded data pipelines.
  • The use via the browser means that it is widely accessible by all in the company, no matter the platform.
  • The lack of customization in the snaps with supplemental code
  • Some functionality, as loops, are not as out of the box as it may seem and requires multiple snaps to achieve
  • Custom development of snaps are very confusing and not easy to do.
SnapLogic is well suited to bulk transferring of data with standard transformations. It also has a great manager section for the administration of your projects. Where SnapLogic may fall short is in the transformation heavy projects where the data sits in the pipeline during transformation. This can cause bottlenecks with resources on the nodes.

It is being used by the integrations team. We extract data from our customers' databases from their servers, transform them so that their Chart of Accounts codes from their data gets recognized within our product, and automates the scheduled job into our platform. It's significantly easier to use an ETL tool to do these actions rather than building our own internal tool to accomplish that.
  • Copying, versioning pipelines.
  • Easy customization of whatever you're trying to achieve.
  • The installation process is vague, and our customers have issues with using Java for security reasons. If they had an install package that could fix that it would be less of an issue.
  • They could make it more convenient to use on the web browser, if I was working on a customer in the Manager I don't want to have to navigate to keep going back to that.
If you have integrations that are complex in terms of the movement of data being from a bunch of different systems and have a lot of different moving parts, it works great. Their support is more hands-off though which is a bit frustrating for installing the SnapLogic groundplex or having any general issues. Once you're all set up, it's an amazing product to use.
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.

We use SnapLogic for any kind of report or data automation. Pushing data into a database, or generating scheduled reports.
  • Report Automation! This is a MUST have for any team that wants to send automated reports.
  • Updating metrics that don't come through another solution. If you need to get data into a larger data set, Snap is the best (only?) way to do it cleanly.
  • Simple interface. You don't need to be a developer to learn and understand Snap pipelines.
  • Your underlying data to snap into a different solution (SQL) must be VERY clean, or pipelines break. I expect this, but it would be great if you could adjust columns without breaking a pipeline.
If you need to automate reporting or data moves you HAVE to have SnapLogic. I've built out 2 workflow automation teams and Snap has been integral to both of these teams. It's not suited for completing analytics, but rather for getting data into a place where you can make decisions based on that data.
I give it a 9 because we have never had to use them. The product is so intuitive and there are plenty of online resources. I'm sure if we reached out to the support would be great, but we've never used it.

SnapLogic: New Era of ETL

We are using Sisense as an ETL tool to extract, transform and load. It is connected to many source systems and we are pulling the data to the data warehouse. Using REST API, data can be fetched then transformed using a simple pipeline. Complex flows are creating using multiple pipelines. Whole data can be placed at one place in the warehouse from multiple sources using Snaplogic.
  • Easy pipeline with simple drag and drop snaps to do the transforming
  • Creating SCD has become easier than any other tool
  • Scheduling tasks are also easier with Snaplogic
  • Using rest API other tools/services can be integrated
  • Cheap and easily install-able
  • Instability of the tool as we can face some unknown issues randomly.
  • It's difficult to find more flaws as it's way easier to handle.
Snaplogic is best suited for ETL purposes, loading large chunks of data in an easy way. It is easy to install. For small scale industries, it is an appropriate tool, as it costs very little. It is less suited for complex transforming. For medium to large scale organizations, it has some functionality constraints.

Snaplogic is being used within the BI team as well as other teams to integrate data from different applications.
  • Easy to complete data integration for a non-tach-savvy person.
  • Cheaper than other established data integration products such as Informatica, Talend etc...
  • Not much maintenance headache as this is both a platform as a service, as well as software as a service.
  • Complex re-usable components are difficult to implement. Although nested pipelines exist, you have to pass all the parameters and configure them each time. If there is complex business logic during data transformation, SnapLogic forces you to use a lot of scripts. This way anyone can lose the readability and maintainability of the code of any ETL tool.
  • Parallel processing of data (multi-thread) is not easy to implement.
  • Not well integrated with the AWS environment. For instance, it does not support KMS encryption. With newer tools coming up in the AWS /AZURE environments, SnapLogic is not able to quickly come up with integration tools to compensate.
Our finance team is doing integration with the billing systems, and some of our non-tech-savvy team is doing the SnapLogic integration. I will recommend using SnapLogic. However, if there is a BI team doing data warehouse, I would not recommend using SnapLogic as the sole data integration tool.

SnapLogic is being used by our data engineering and few of our application teams, primarily for data integration, extraction, transformation and loading of data from different source systems into our data lake. We also use it across our finance, marketing and business operations use cases/projects. It basically addresses our use cases of data ingestion from various sources (business, learning, 3rd party, SaaS providers, etc) and helps our BI and analytics team focus on outcome and operational reporting than worry about data access, accuracy and compliance. It also helps to securely transmit data between applications for few of our near-real time use cases. We have recently started to test it for our ML use cases as well.
  • 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.
  • One of the biggest challenges we have had is some of their snaps tend to be slow when the data volume is large. Utilizing native bulk capabilities by working with vendors directly could help them in this space.
  • Depending on your use case, scaling it for enterprise could be expensive proposition in the long term so think what your use case and who your consumers are of this tool.
SnapLogic is well suited for data integration across varied sources by non developers or semi developers when access to certain data is more important than the whole system itself. Using it for creating data warehouses is a bit challenging and time consuming proposition using this tool.

We currently use SnapLogic in our apps department. We are constructing a new database for reporting purposes and all the data flows are being implemented (as of now) using SnapLogic. The data flows are sourced from Workday and other internal databases. We also use Snaplogic for extracting data from MongoDB, sending data extracts to external SFTP sites, etc.
  • Their customer service response time is brilliant.
  • SFTP tasks do a great job in reading the file directly from the server, instead of having to download it and then read it.
  • Tasks expose the ability to run them using external job schedulers.
  • Once you have a server up, setting up SnapLogic service does not take long. They have good documentation and customer support too.
  • 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.
Snaplogic is well suited for almost every data flow. They also have snaps to connect to various third-party vendors - which allows you to talk directly to the vendor's API. Snaplogic is less suited for data blending as it requires many snaps. It's not that it's not doable, it's just that the pipeline gets filled with a lot of snaps and can look complex.

We utilized SnapLogic to facilitate the automation of data movement between two cloud systems. This allowed us to create scheduling of data movement that optimized our processes.
  • Data movement in cloud based systems
  • Automation and scheduling of tasks
  • Data transformation
  • Training and video tutorials
  • Better on screen error messages
SnapLogic is very well suited for cloud platforms and I recommend it whenever you need to do data movement between two cloud systems.
