Data from SnapLogic’s Snaps to Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store

Tech enterprise customers can now uncover business value and access new insights from their cloud-based big data initiatives with the addition of SnapLogic’s pre-built intelligent connectors — called Snaps — to Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store. The release on Sept. 21, 2016 is the most recent collaboration between Microsoft Azure and SnapLogic, the industry’s first unified data and application integration platform as a service (iPaaS).

Customers can utilize Snaps to access and transform their data quickly no matter its format or if it comes from on-premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid environments into Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store, which is a scalable, cloud-based depot for big data analytics workloads. From there the data can go on for further processing on an HDInsight cluster. Then customers can quickly analyze relevant data using multiple business intelligence tools or off-cluster data stores.

“As data gravity continues to move to the cloud, enterprises require a modern, agile platform to manage the massive volumes and varieties of data increasingly being stored and processed in data lakes,” said Craig Stewart, SnapLogic’s vice president of product management, in the company’s press release. “Together with Microsoft, we are making it easier and faster for our customers to turn big data in the cloud into intelligent, actionable insights that in turn deliver meaningful value to the business.”

Before this latest one, SnapLogic and Microsoft Azure have partnered on a variety of products. These include Microsoft HDInsight, Microsoft’s cloud-based Hadoop distribution that supports managed processing of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data, Azureplex, SnapLogic’s hybrid execution framework for Microsoft Azure, and Snaps for Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Microsoft Azure SQL Database and Microsoft Azure Blob Storage.


 Key Takeaways: 

– Uncover business value and access new insights from data in any format or from on-premises, in the cloud or in hybrid environments.

– After Snaps pushes the data into Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store, it can be processed further in HDInsight cluster then analyzed using a variety of business intelligence tools or off-cluster data stores.
