I'm not sure which cloud provider was used by my company for SnapLogic, as that was maintained by a different team. I'm just an application user. SnapLogic requires maintenance, but the administration work or maintenance work was done by a separate team, so I'm not quite clear in terms of maintenance. There are releases I'm aware of, where I would get a notification that the product would be offline for some time because the team will be doing certain enhancements. The administration and maintenance team is given information on the new releases for this version, so my team, particularly the application development team, would test it and make appropriate changes if required. Sometimes there's a scene where one snap was getting removed and you need to replace it with a different snap, particularly a newer release or version. SnapLogic has regular maintenance, release, or version handled by a different team within my company. There are approximately thirty to fifty users of SnapLogic within the company. There's a team dedicated to administration activities in terms of deployment, maintenance, release activities, and providing access. There's a team of application developers which I'm part of that uses the tool to create pipelines, work on SnapLogic to develop apps, and do ETL transmission. I didn't work with the solution daily. I only worked with it whenever required. SnapLogic is used comparatively less by multiple organizations. I would opt for other traditional tools that have a lot of other features, which have a built-in cache for faster performance and can process huge ETL load volumes, such as Informatica, Talend, including PySpark. I would rate SnapLogic less. My advice to people looking into implementing SnapLogic is that if you have basic ETL knowledge, you can do self-study on this. There is also documentation for every snap, so even if you don't know how to build pipelines or how to work on this tool, the documentation would be really helpful. There's a help button in the tool that when clicked, directly takes you to that particular snap's documentation. You can self-study and you can create it yourself. External training is not required, and that is one pro about SnapLogic. The UI portion is also good. There is a separate window for pipeline creation and you can go to the Snaps and folder areas separately. I'm rating SnapLogic eight out of ten. My company is a customer of SnapLogic. It is an AWS partner, but not a SnapLogic partner.

I'm a customer and an end-user. I'm using the latest version of the solution and just upgraded last week. People should try the solution and try the free POC. People should try it and compare it to others, and, if it works within the environment and the necessary integrations, it's a good solution for them. Right now, the product is in the process of not really adding new things, but rather enhancing all of the features they have. They're also implementing machine learning and AI right now. They're also moving towards big data. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

I'm using the latest version of SnapLogic, but I don't remember the version number. In my organization, across the board, I'm not sure how many people use SnapLogic, but at my location, there are thirty to forty users of the solution. In terms of roles, all users are developers. My advice to first time users of SnapLogic or to anyone looking into implementing it is that if there is a requirement to move data across systems or to integrate data across different systems, I'd definitely recommend SnapLogic, because it's a tool that's pretty easy to use. Much of it is only drag and drop and it is a low code tool. I'll very much recommend SnapLogic to others. My rating for SnapLogic is eight out of ten. There are still issues for a user like me in terms of debugging in SnapLogic. It gives very limited options for debugging, and that's a major area to work on, so I didn't give it a perfect score. My company is a customer of SnapLogic.

I have experience in both WSO2 and SnapLogic. I worked as a consultant and my client used SnapLogic for retail. I utilized hybrid deployment for SnapLogic. The company had Plexus, so for the CloudPlex, SnapLogic provided the managed service and for the GroundPlex, it was deployed in AWS. In terms of the maintenance of the solution, at one point in time, the company had fifty developers working on SnapLogic, and there was also a citizen initiative where citizen users were created, so there were close to sixty developers. There was an operations team of ten people and out of the ten there were seven engineers, and there was a team leader, and then a manager. The team didn't just handle technical errors, as it also provided functional support for SnapLogic. I'm rating SnapLogic eight out of ten.

We are an implementation partner for SnapLogic. So far, I've been extremely satisfied with the solution. I'd rate it at a nine out of ten, as there is always room for improvement in any product.

I think the master data management, use-cases, and high-volume data transfers are good. Each product has its own strengths and weaknesses. Solutions such as Mulesoft will focus heavily on the engineering soft bundle. If SnapLogic meets the needs and requirements of the use cases and the business, then I would recommend this solution to anyone who is interested in using it. I would rate SnapLogic a seven out of ten.

We use the solution on a daily basis. I'd advise other companies that if it's combined with other tools it will make for a very strong solution. I'd recommend the product. We already have clients on it and many of our team members have tested it. I'd rate the solution six out of ten overall, simply because, as a solution, it's still growing. It's not mature yet. If it had simpler logic processing, I'd probably bump it up to an eight. It's easy to use, scalable and reusable and it's overall a great product.

What is your recommendation in choosing an integration product for implementing fusion applications? ICS or ODI?I have heavy duty file processing in interfacing Cloud ERP with many 3rd party systems, but not they are not voluminous. Which would you recommend?

ICS and ODI are not mutually exclusive, and can be used in a tandem, ICS is good for publish and subscribe patterns, also has lots of adapters such as file, ftp and various SaaS adapters. ODI is for heavy transformations, but has almost no concept of publish and subscribe (there is pub/sub pattern within ODI but is not the same as messaging pub/sub). So, I would use ODI for heavy transformations on large files if required, ICS for integration via out of the box provided adapters.

I believe that ODI is appropriate for file processing and manipulation use cases. It provides most of the capabilities needed for such task through a large library of KMs / Knowledge modules. The required skill set for the ODI is mainly SQL developer which is easy to obtained easier than Oracle SOA suite or ICS developers.
