SnapLogic May 2020 many enhancements – ask Synergy Software Systems

May 14th, 2020

We are thrilled to announce the general availability of the May 2020 release of the SnapLogic Intelligent Integration Platform (IIP).

New Iris artificial intelligence (AI) innovations within this release allow you to build painless integrations, increase collaboration within your organization with new Stickies, and automate workflows with new SAP S/4HANA Snaps, among many more.

New Mask Snap, powered by Iris AI: Simplify data masking!

As you work with a variety of data in your dev and test environments, it is always good practice to shield and protect sensitive information. Masking sensitive or personally identifiable information such as: social security numbers (SSN), email addresses, names, street addresses, and birthdates is easy with our new Mask Snap.

With the Mask Snap, Iris AI is embedded in every step :
- suggestions on the fields you should mask,
- recommended search mode,
- recommended match mode,
- recommended masking options

You can remove or mask fields, and it works with all data types, including highly-nested JSON.

We continue to enhance our industry-leading AI technology to make it easy for you to build integrations and automations, easily and painlessly. With the new May 2020 release, as you are configuring a database or an application Snap, Iris AI now provides configuration recommendations such as schema name, object name. To provide these recommendations, Iris employs over five years of metadata information and usage patterns to intelligently determine the most commonly used schemas and objects in your organization.

From source to destination, Iris AI continues to simplify schema mappings – map even complex schemas in minutes. With the May 2020 release, Iris now provides target recommendations in Mapper for exact matches between source and destination schemas.

Boost collaboration with peers using Stickies!
SnapLogic customers who have previewed our May 2020 release have embraced our new Stickies feature with great enthusiasm. Stickies enables better collaboration and documentation of your pipeline building efforts. Stickies allow you to create and post notes on the Designer canvas to annotate different parts of the pipeline and document the workings of a pipeline in detail.
Stickies provide a great collaboration tool between IT teams, who might create pipelines, and business teams, who might want to customize and run pipelines based on their specific needs.

Stickies reside at the pipeline level, thus, they complement the Snap level ‘note’ feature already present in the platform. Additionally, Stickies are part of a pipeline’s metadata – export stickies along with your pipelines.

Cross-Account IAM Role enables SnapLogic to assume an authorized role for the purpose of managing the lifecycle of Amazon EMR clusters that run Spark mode data transformations, so you don’t have to do it..

SnapLogic eXtreme is broadly applicable with support for any JDBC compliant data store.

Use a Spark mode pipeline to read from or to write to any JDBC compliant database.

No change to end of life support for Ax 2012 – plan your migration with Dynamics Gold Partner Synergy Software Systems

May 11th, 2020

Coronavirus tis impacting many IT project for Dynamics AX customers migrating from legacy versions of Ax 4/2009/2012 to dynamics 365.

Be aware that extended support plans for Dynamics AX 2009 Service Pack 1, AX 2012, and AX 2012 R2 are due to end on October 12, 2021. AX 2012 R3 users have until January 10, 2023. And Microsoft is advising customers these dates will remains in place, at least for now.

A Microsoft spokesperson provided this statement:

There is currently no plan to extend support further; however, we continue to monitor market needs including impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic related to support for Dynamics AX 2009 and Dynamics AX 2012.

So while the legacy versions are robust they will increasingly be incompatible with the latest versions of operating systems and browsers, and SQQL database and be increasingly vulnerable to malware and cybercrime. The coronavirus pandemic is affecting projects in many ways especially for global projects, for example: travel/quarantine, lockdowns and curfews on working, the need for remote collaboration, and e learning, and for global rollout more use of local partners.

There is no immediate end in sight so projects and timelines will be impacted for at last another year in which case we strongly advise you start your preparations for migration as early as possible. there is mush to consider: the on premise vs on cloud decision is now of greater importance, environmental sizing for cloud or on premise needs is significantly different as is new licensing and features for D365, new security set ups, code and data migration, project methodology via LCS , budgetting and project planning all take a lot of time.

The new challenges are accelerating different ways of working and some Business Process re-engineering should also be considered- e-commerce, Robotic Process automation, Lean manufacture, cross platform and application processes, self service, vendor collaboration, Customer portals, increased use of smart phones and mobiles from bar cod e driven WMS operations to Advanced analytics on your phone anytime anywhere any devices. To compete needs omni channel tailored services – there has never been a greater need for increased cost control, efficiency, and customer service. Start the process now while you can – as deadlines get nearer there will be backlog of customers seeking to upgrade and shortage of available resources both internally and externally.

TEAMS -75 million users -ask Synergy Software Systems, Dubai

May 1st, 2020

The use of Microsoft Teams has surged more than 70 percent since March with the massive global shift to remote work requiring increased online collaboration and video conferencing. .

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella the n updated figure for daily active users (DAU) on Wednesday of 75 million.
The 75 million DAU follows a 44 million figure for the same metric as of March 18.

“As work norms evolve, organizations are realizing they need a comprehensive solution that brings together communications, collaboration and business process — built on a foundation of security and privacy,” Nadella said.

Nadella said that Teams had more than 200 million meeting participants in a single day in April. He also said those same participants racked up more than 4.1 billion meeting minutes.

“Microsoft Teams supports multiple communications modalities in a shared workspace. It is the only solution with meetings, calls, chat, collaboration with the power of Office, and business process workflows — in a single, integrated user experience — with the highest security, as well as compliance. Teams keeps all your work and communication — conversations, documents, whiteboards, and meeting notes — in context. It helps people collaborate inside and outside meetings, making them more efficient and effective while reducing fatigue,” he said.

“Twenty organizations with more than 100,000 employees are now using Teams, including Continental AG, Ernst & Young, Pfizer and SAP. Just last week, Accenture became the first organization to surpass half a million users,” Nadella said.

We use it – how about you?
