SnapGPT delivers AI-powered decision-making…

Generative AI is changing the blueprint for integration. It’s changing the way we think about the economics of team velocity, project structure, and delivery models. This technology, when applied to the software interactions we use every day, has the potential to play a transformative role in organisations.

In many ways, foundation models such as ChatGPT, Claude, and PaLM2 are redefining human-computer interaction. With their remarkable ability to generate contextually relevant and coherent responses, these services have captivated individuals and industries alike, sparking a wave of innovation and transforming the way we engage with technology.

The iPaaS (integration platform as a service) is no exception. The next generation of iPaaS have the potential to shrink complex system integrations from days and weeks to hours and minutes, allowing businesses to innovate faster, reach further and operate more efficiently.

Generative integration

Generative integration is an emerging integration software category that leverages GenAI to allow users to turn intentions into integrations faster.

By unearthing hidden connections, organisations gain a competitive edge, fuelling innovation and driving transformative change. As generative integration continues to evolve, it’s clear that it’s not just about simplifying the integration process – it’s about paving the way for a future where data-driven decisions are made with clarity and confidence.

SnapLogic recently released SnapGPT, the world’s first generative integration solution. Companies have been using AI for years to help crunch large amounts of data to produce insights for their businesses. SnapGPT takes this a step further by automating the creation and ongoing curation of data and process flows, allowing businesses to quickly introduce changes around new opportunities.

3 Ways SnapGPT is changing integration

SnapGPT streamlines workflows, reduces manual intervention and enhances development efficiency, while maintaining encryption standards.

SnapGPT catalyses business decision-making by:

1. Democratising integration: SnapGPT empowers employees with any job title or technical skill level to easily and quickly create workflows and data pipelines via natural language or voice prompts in nearly 100 different languages.

2. Delivering faster time to value: SnapGPT auto-generates sample data for testing and comprehensive documentation for each integration, allowing employees to validate new business workflows and put them into production more quickly. Users can also generate workflow and pipeline descriptions to significantly reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

3. Reducing IT integration workloads: SnapGPT acts as a tireless, intelligent co-pilot, providing contextual suggestions and real-time guidance throughout the integration process, boosting confidence and providing self-service to users of all experience levels while reducing strain on IT to assist, create, test and monitor integration builds.

Pioneering a new era of integration

Founded in 1889, Barnard College at Columbia University is revered as one of the most selective academic institutions in the US. The college recognised the importance of connecting all of its disparate systems and automating processes while accelerating analytics. This data-driven connectivity is key to driving modern learning experiences in a digital-first landscape while keeping pace with today’s student expectations.

Nancy Mustachio, Director of Enterprise Applications at Barnard College, has been instrumental in leading the college’s transformation to a smarter, more digitally connected future. She recently embraced the opportunity to leverage SnapGPT and is excited to be at the forefront of this pioneering technology.

“We are starting to see the initial benefits of Generative Integration. It’s early days but we can already see its potential to increase team efficiency,” Mustachio says. “Our team of developers has used SnapGPT to create and test integration workflows in under an hour, compared to days. I foresee SnapGPT will continue to advance to handle more complex integrations. We’re excited to be at the forefront.”
