  8. 8. 8 Two Critical Questions for Enterprise IT CRM HRMS ITSM ERP SCM Analytics “Cloudification” Which Apps to Move to the Cloud and When? “Data Gravity” Will Data Reside Behind the Firewall or in the Cloud?
  9. 9. 9 Traditional Integration Approaches Can’t Keep Up  Legacy EAI – Not built for the web – On-prem ESB – Code-intensive  Legacy ETL – Built for rows and columns – Batch-oriented – Struggles with real-time Organizations are increasingly turning to iPaaS offerings because of their close affinity with SaaS and the anticipated greater ease of use, lower costs and faster time-to-integration than traditional integration platforms. . ““ Known as “The Integrator’s Dilemma”

  12. 12. 12 About iRobot
  13. 13. 13 Needed to increase cadence and veracity of distributed manufacturing data collection processes with a focus on operational intelligence. • Synchronize data across multiple geos, vendors, and firewalls “With SnapLogic we’ve been able to eliminate some of the rigidity and time-consuming tasks related to traditional integration patterns.” - Jim Teal, Information Architect iRobot
  14. 14. 14 The Challenges We Faced  Geographically distributed manufacturing  Veracity of data and quality of testing was a concern  Wanted to eliminate FTP and VPN channels  Wanted to eliminate file-based processing  Multiple SaaS applications:
  15. 15. 15 Options Considered  Oracle Data Integrator already in use in-house – Re-use existing file based integration patterns – Establish persistent network connectivity to remote resources and rewrite ODI integrations for database to database integrations, eliminating file management  Looked at another iPaaS solution iPaaS
  16. 16. 16 Why SnapLogic?  Software defined architecture – Control plane in Boston, data planes in China  Standards connectivity, eliminated VPNs, etc.  “Groundplexes”  Schema-less approach  Strongly-type vs. weakly typed  68 to 6 pipelines Metadata Data
  17. 17. 17 Next Steps with SnapLogic  New Design Pattern developed is highly reusable and we plan to expand the use cases to include additional areas like: – Quality Data Collection – Repairs and Returns – And many more  Expand footprint of SnapLogic with other Snaps for integration of cloud and on-premises apps to eliminate data silos
