Welcome to the Next-Ready API Integration Platform
We Want You to Be Free to Innovate
For too many businesses, integration stands between them and successful innovation. They want to create new products and experiences for customers and enter new markets, but integration holds them back. It slows them down, it drains developer resources, and it frustrates the vision of innovators.
Cloud Elements wants to make innovation easier. We lift the burden of API integration, so businesses can pour their passion and resources into new and better experiences for customers and deeper collaboration with partners, to power what’s next.
From APIs to Ecosystems
APIs are no longer the solution. They are the problem. Every app or data source publishes an API that says, “Here’s how to connect with me.” All you have to do is structure your data and application their way. And that works fine for the first integration. But what if you want your app to integrate with every ERP system? What if you want 5 or 6 apps integrated together for one part of your business, and another 5 for another department? Pretty soon, you’re inundated with an API integration backlog, and a maintenance nightmare.
Cloud Elements takes a completely different approach when it comes to handling the multiplier effect of API proliferation. Instead of connecting to each app or data source individually, we create a virtualized API as the foundation for how to connect you with everything else. This virtualized API can connect with multiple applications, so integration scales. This approach puts your business and your data at the center of a customized Application Ecosystem. Integration starts with you, not with the API.
Our Integration Platform Starts Simple and Stays Simple
Cloud Elements jump starts your integration efforts with pre-built Elements to a library of over 200 of the most popular applications and endpoints. These Elements offer advanced features like normalized authentication, discovery APIs, search capabilities, event-driven workflows, unified error handling, and so much more. You can also use our technology to build your own Elements. You can contribute your Elements to expand the catalog for others as well. Control is handed back to you, the innovator. Your business becomes ready for what you want to do next.
A Community of Innovators
We can’t do this alone. We’ve been fortunate over the years to work with a group of customers who’ve joined our effort to make integration simpler and more powerful. It’s a diverse set of:
- Product visionaries who are leading the charge at their organizations to drive innovative new experiences for their own customers
- Technology leaders who share our desire to make integration an enabler of innovation instead of its enemy
- Developers who have adopted Cloud Elements and constantly champion our product, and give us new ideas for making it better
With your help, we can accelerate our customers’ innovation, and forge lasting relationships. Be A Part of our Community.
“Previously it took us about 3 years to build 3 integrations, and in the year that we’ve used Cloud Elements we built 6 more integrations that now over a ⅓ of our user base is using.”
The Cloud Elements Team
At Cloud Elements, a leader shows up authentically, is well-organized, and has clear goals and objectives set for a great collaborative experience. Our leadership agreements are the fundamental principles that help shape our culture and set our team up for success in any project or challenge we face. We expect every Cloud Elements employee to uphold these elements of leadership everyday to help build a company, culture, and product that we are proud of.
We treat each other with respect, and lift each other up. We can agree to disagree, be tactful, and have productive debates. Leaders respect team boundaries and trust that leaders of those teams will lead effectively and do what is best for Cloud Elements. We are respectful of all lifestyles, genders, and races. We go out of our way to be inclusive and make this a great place to work for team members of all backgrounds.
We are inclusive. We are not limited by org charts or reporting structure. We invite teammates into the vision and trust them to develop and execute a plan. A leader at Cloud Elements is an excellent communicator and ensures that the entire team is aware of expectations, on the same page, and working toward a common goal.
Mentor and Coach
We believe that everyone benefits from timely coaching (even the CEO :)). We hold each other accountable to our values and principles. We know that the little things matter and that we can positively impact each team member’s career and life by working to continuously improve ourselves. Every meeting and interaction is an opportunity to coach.
Vision Leads and Execution Follows. We are forward thinkers, consumed with making tomorrow better than today, and we never settle. Leaders will set strategic goals based on their vision and empower the team to develop a plan and execute. Leaders can see a step ahead and prepare and plan the team to pivot if needed. It is expected that a leader has their finger on the pulse of the marketplace, industry, technology, team, culture, and business landscape at all times.
