Todac Dataswitch: Legacy Migration

What were the underlying reasons or business implications for the need to innovate and transform the business? Describe the business and technical challenges the customer was facing.

Legacy Data Modernization has always been a challenge for Enterprises and Mid Market firms and the need to accelerate the process of securely migrating data to the cloud with self-serviceable capabilities has always been rising. This is where DataSwitch’s Legacy Migration As A Service (LMaaS) helped SnapLogic prospects accelerate their migration process.

Which customer did you implement this on?

ClarusOne, CarFax (POC), Caterpillar (POC)

Describe your strategy and execution to solve the business challenge. Include details on how SnapLogic played a role in the strategy and execution, including Snaps and other SnapLogic products/features.

DataSwitch developed a focused Accelerator platform to simplify forklift + shift + Optimize Legacy Metadata structures (xml) into SnapLogic Pipelines (slp) with test cases focusing on complex use cases and automate the migration play up to 70%.

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)

Typically it was DataSwitch’s product dev + TODAC advisory team who developed the Legacy ETLs to SnapLogic pipeline accelerator. DataSwitch and TODAC team had immense support from Jason Wakeam, Jay Unalkat, Rich Dill, Karthik Bandi & Craig Stewart during this journey.

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

Clearly enabling faster closures of Legacy migration use cases (INFA/ Datastage/Talend/SSIS to SnapLogic) for the sales folks. Up to 70% reduction in migration efforts and over 50% TCO reduction as wetted and confirmed by key folks at SnapLogic.

What was the ROI the customer gained from executing the strategy? Include any additional measurable metrics (ie. productivity improvement, speed improvement, % reduced manual inefficiencies, etc.)

The project is still on with ClarusOne and we are doing up to 100% automation of the Talend to SnapLogic jobs.

Anything else you would like to add?

Would like to request more support from the Product Team of SnapLogic in terms of coming up with a focused agenda of better migration enablement exercises.
