SnapLogic Names Developer of OpenAir "Snap" Winner of the SnapStore Developer Challenge

Dylan Reinhardt Wins $5,000 and a Meeting With Venture Capital Firm Andreessen Horowitz for Cloud Integration

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) -  SnapLogic™ today announced that Dylan Reinhardt, director of operations at medical device regulatory consulting firm MyRAQA, Inc., has been named the winner of SnapLogic's first-ever SnapStore™ Developer Challenge, a contest for the developers of "Snaps," the connectors, pipelines, and data transformations that run on the SnapLogic DataFlow server and are available in the company's SnapStore online marketplace. Reinhardt is the developer of the OpenAir Snap, which connects OpenAir's professional services automation (PSA) software and services resource planning (SRP) software with third-party data sources. More information about SnapLogic, including the SnapStore, is available at http://www.snaplogic.com/.

"Dylan created a new, out-of-the-box solution that addresses the significant challenge of integrating OpenAir data with third-party applications such as Salesforce," said Gaurav Dhillon, chief executive officer, SnapLogic. "The SnapStore Developer Challenge is our way of recognizing talented data integration developers. After the success of our first contest, we intend to make this an annual event and hope to see even more participation in the future."

More than 50 developers registered for the contest, which kicked off in January 2010 and solicited Snaps for SaaS-, Web-, enterprise-, and financial system-based integrations. Entries were judged by SnapLogic and its advisors based on architecture, ease of use, functionality, and ease of installation. As the contest winner, Reinhardt will receive a $5,000 cash prize and a one-hour meeting with leading venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.

"The OpenAir Snap I developed for the SnapStore Developer Challenge met our immediate OpenAir integration needs and can also be reused as a component in future integrations," said Reinhardt. "That's the power of the SnapLogic DataFlow Platform: Snaps can be both repurposed within an organization and made available for sale to others in the SnapStore, as we have done."

The OpenAir Snap provides the SnapLogic DataFlow platform with read and write access to the OpenAir system. The Snap's building blocks model specific functions, such as search, found in the OpenAir XML API. The Snap uses the XML API, rather than the SOAP API, for its simplicity and greater internal support by OpenAir. It supports all of the standard and custom fields defined on the various OpenAir record types and allows full access to all features in OpenAir, enabling OpenAir data integration with many third-party applications.

The OpenAir Snap is now available in the SnapStore for $3,675. More information about the Snap is available here: http://store.snaplogic.com/products/openair-snap.
