New! SnapLogic eXtreme

SnapLogic eXtreme takes on big data integrations, letting enterprise business and IT professionals easily process large amounts of data and perform complex transformations –without requiring the specialized skills typically necessary for data integration and management. You can now reduce the time and effort it takes to support business goals and use data as a strategic asset.

Just a reminder, all Snaplexes in your org must be updated to the latest version in order to see the new Snaps.

The first update of the 4.14 Release to UAT was pushed.

See the Release Notes for the UAT delta information.

Just a reminder, when a Quarterly release goes out, each SnapLogic customer can decide to keep their existing version of Snaplex (Cloudplex or Groundplex) and Snap Packs for up to 28 days before upgrading. This gives you the opportunity to make sure the new Snaplex and Snap Packs are stable and working as expected before rolling them out to your entire corporation. Until you upgrade your Snaplexes, you will see a message in Dashboard like “The current Snaplex version (master-3239) is deprecated” and you will not see all new Snaps.
