2021 Application Innovation Award Nomination: Lazard: Transaction data flows between systems

What were the underlying reasons or business implications for the need of application integrations? Describe the business and technical challenges the company was facing and how application integrations can help.

Business use case was to flow transaction data between two systems in real time instead batch on any event happened between source vs destination and destination vs source. Challenge are, it was pull model by design and batch and user was not able to get real time info between two system after did some modification, we have to wait until batch complete.

Describe your application innovation strategy and how you executed the strategy. Include details on how SnapLogic played a role in the strategy and execution, including Snaps and other SnapLogic products/features.

Here we jumped to use SnapLogic as a middle tier to make the system real time, instead pull by batch source and destination system will push the change to SnapLogic on any event. SnapLogic triggered task and different security mechanism available helped us to implement and along with multiple Snaps.

Innovation strategy steps included:
1- How outside system will call SnapLogic since SnapLogic instance was groundplex and under company VPC. Infrastructure change on api gateway(dmz) level.
2- Whether source and destination system has push mechanism available or not on any event.
3- How to authenticate that system in SnapLogic since it was in bound call.
4- How much volume of request we can process looking into current system configuration (cpu and memory and node availability and integrated log gathering for audit). Bottom line is we followed best practice like secure, resilience and low latency.

Who was and how were they involved in building out the solution? (Please include the # of FTEs, any partners or SnapLogic professional services who were involved on the implementation)

(Ali Sharifian, asharifian@snaplogic.com) was involved on this to help it out, design we did look into our existing system nature, business request and Infrastructure restriction.

What were the business results after implementing these application integrations? Describe how your company, departments, and/or employees/customers benefit from the application integrations. Include any measurable metrics.

We made the system fully automated and real time data availability to user, it was great result to business and as well as maintenance cost saving to company.

Anything else you would like to add?

We are going to use similar kind of execution for other use case also, now snapLogic will become key for company to integrate most of the system as a middle tier.
