SnapLogic Expands Cloud Integration Platform's Data Quality Capabilities

Cloud connection company SnapLogic has expanded the data quality capabilities of its cloud integration platform with its Summer 2011 Release.

As part of an organization’s integration technology, SnapLogic now enables seamless data cleansing, data enrichment, and controls for data governance, according to company officials.

The new release also features a NoSQL database, CouchDB, inside the SnapLogic Integration Platform. Plus, it comes with the ability to leverage a new JSON Snap that helps companies to integrate large amounts of unstructured data. Moreover, it introduces in-memory optimization of data transformations.

The number of cloud-based applications and data sources is increasing and businesses can no longer afford to spend extra resources on data quality each time they add a new data source to their ecosystem.

With SnapLogic, companies of all sizes can seamlessly incorporate data quality controls directly into their integration pipelines as the data moves between multiple, disparate on-premise and cloud-based systems.

Company officials said that SnapLogic’s capabilities apply to a wide range of data types and domains and can be configured without coding, including matching and de-duplication that apply business rules when extracting data from a database, or identify and link duplicate records across multiple data sources

Also, it can create cascading, expression-based data operations for performing advanced data filtering and then output filtered data to any number of destinations; extract data into individual components or merge individual data components into a single string; ensure data is standardized and data located in the wrong field is moved to the correct field; and more.

Additionally, SnapLogic is enhancing its capabilities around big data and its high-performance run-time engine, said company officials.

“One of the key challenges that our company faces in on-boarding new clients is integrating data from legacy systems. SnapLogic lets us truly automate this process by cleansing and enriching that data before we move it into our Cloud.” Jai Chawla, co-founder and head of Projects at Paperwork Pro.

Earlier this year in May, SnapLogic announced its “Snap” for EMC Greenplum Database.
