    Presentation: Enhancing SaaS applications through data integration with SnapLogic

    SnapLogic is an open source integration framework, designed from the ground up
    to apply the principles of the web to solving the data integration problem.

    SnapLogic can be used for traditional integration between applications, as well as SaaS
    integration.  Its Web architecture is uniquely suited for solving 'Cloud to Ground'
    integration problems, while its component architecture and open source implementation
    make it very flexible and extensible.

    The talk will begin with an introduction to the SnapLogic architecture and the
    capabilities available, including extending the system.  We will then review some simple
    transformation pipelines that access a basic orders system. Finally, we will look at an
    application that uses these pipelines to implement a collaborative account management
    system on top of SugarCRM combining data from multiple applications to improve account
