DataSync vs SnowMirror

DataSync and SnowMirror are two popular applications for integrating ServiceNow with other apps and databases.

While they both help improve the availability of ServiceNow data and help combine it with other sources, their approaches to doing so differ greatly.

The result, is two vastly different experiences in terms of ServiceNow’s instance performance, scalability of the integration, the volume of data transfers, and more.

What you'll learn

The right integration solution for an organization depends on their specific requirements.

No Impact to Performance, with DataSync

For example, DataSync achieves massive throughput without impacting ServiceNow’s performance by avoiding web-services and API-based data transfers.

Instead it leverages “Push” technology to replicate data to a cloud-enabled Message Broker System to facilitate data transfers without having to compete with ServiceNow’s bandwidth

SnowMirror relies on the more traditional web-services based integrations – which may suit organizations seeking continuity with existing web-services-based integrations

But this can cause performance issues when high data volumes are present, and requires access to sufficient internal resources to maintain the integrations themselves.

Benefits of Integrations-as-a-Service

Organizations that opt for integrations delivered and maintained as-a-service can make much more proactive use of internal resources.

The scope of integration projects is often initially underestimated. Then when it is under way, there is often more work to be done over time to ensure the integration scales with the organization’s growing data volumes and requirements.

This makes internally managed integrations time consuming, difficult to budget for, and vulnerable to employee turnover.

Integrations-as-a-Service avoid these shortcomings, allowing organizations to take advantage of the vendor’s expertise in delivering integrations. All Perspectium applications are delivered as a managed service.

Perspectium Integrations: Created and Delivered by ServiceNow Integration Experts

The Perspectium solution and service was created by the founding developer of ServiceNow, David Loo, who used their intimate understanding of ServiceNow, to create an unrivalled experience in ServiceNow integrations.

The ServiceNow organization even uses Perspectium’s solutions for their own integration needs. This is despite ServiceNow offering its own integration applications.

As with many others, the organization prefers Perspectium’s integration applications for tasks where massive volumes of ServiceNow data need to be extracted and replicated, without impacting ServiceNow’s performance.

We help many organizations integrate their ServiceNow data with the wider enterprise … including ServiceNow themselves!

Protect Data Against System Failure

The Perspectium application “queues” data transfers between systems.

So if there’s ever an issue with the target system, the data is not lost. It's securely encrypted and queued until the target system is back online. The transfer can then continue as normal.
