It is a recommendation engine that uses machine learning. And it predicts the next step in building a pipeline. It claims to have an accuracy of up to 90% in recommending the next step.
Its 700+ pre-built connectors called Snaps are available across other SnapLogic products. This includes Data Integration and Automation. There are also transformation snaps to do cleansing and data preparation.
SnapLogic platform runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS). And it leverages the security and compliance capabilities of AWS.
SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is a data integration tool from Microsoft. You have SSIS when you buy Microsoft SQL Server. Launched in 2005, SSIS works with a variety of sources and delivers it to the desired destination. It’s a mature product that is flexible, scalable, and reliable. It is ideal for small-scale data migrations to large-scale enterprise data warehouses.
You can design SSIS packages using Visual Studio with drag-and-drop functionality and then perform a variety of data integration scenarios. And this includes ETL, ELT, reverse ETL, data ingestion, replication, and more. SSIS provides a range of data connectors for SQL Server, Oracle, Excel, and other data sources. It can also work with structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data. There are also third-party providers of free and commercial SSIS components. This adds more connectors and transformations to SSIS.
SSIS comes together with SQL Server installer. And it needs installation and configuration by a skilled IT professional. Data resides on customers’ on-premise or cloud servers. So, they are in control of its security. But you can also deploy it in the cloud. So, the security and privacy certifications of that cloud provider are in effect.

SnapLogic calls their pre-built connectors Snaps. And they have 700+ snaps to connect and integrate data. This includes major relational and NoSQL databases, SaaS platforms, and more. So, you can be sure that major CRM, accounting, email marketing, and other SaaS apps are there. But if you cannot find your connector, call your Customer Relations Manager for a custom Snap.
