Your organization and the applications that enable your business rely on data – and putting your data at the center of the app ecosystem helps turn your business into a platform that other products will rely on. The ability to manage, integrate and govern your data and partners is fundamental to your digital future.
Quite often when you think about API Adoption, you stop at the API Management layer. But building it, and expecting developers or partners to come won’t guarantee success. With so many apps and products – each with an API – developer fatigue is real, and organizations can do more to shift the burden of integration away from customers.
There are much more API consumers than there are API providers. This API consumption requires management too, in order to deal with API version changes, detect service outages, and to broker security (e.g. managing API keys). Turn your business into a platform, that supports an ecosystem of application with your product at the center.
With more than 1000 SaaS applications enabling your business today – how do we ensure that data can be shared and synchronized seamlessly between them?
Until now, you have been forced to create point-to-point integrations between these applications. Configuring how to connect App A with App B. This doesn’t scale and doesn’t provide you the visibility or governance you need to manage data integration between a growing number of cloud services.
Cloud Elements provides a unique approach to enterprise integration – we allow your product owners, architects and developers the ability to focus on the data they care about, without worrying about the application interfaces that expose or consume that data.
Elements Connect allows you (IT) to enable your internal customers to quickly consume integration templates you have built with the Cloud Elements integration platform.
You can roll out a branded integration marketplace that ensures IT can maintain control of how sensitive data is moved around while offering a self-service, iSaaS marketplace for your non-technical stakeholders.
Business requirements are changing fast, and Cloud Elements can help turn your legacy systems into developer friendly APIs that will support your digital future. We’ve learned that quite often a one-size-fits-all approach to API design and exposure doesn’t work, and different types of users, developers, and devices have different expectations and requirements when it comes to API consumption.
As API integration evolves and matures, it has become very clear that not all API consumers are created equal: data objects may need to be modified based on the device type; orchestration or composition may be needed depending on the sophistication of the client; security might need to be adapted to fit mobile, web, or IoT scenarios.
