|What is an Element Instance?|
Each time an Element is authenticated with user credentials, it is counted as one Element Instance for the purposes of licensing.
Standard Element: Elements in this tier are transactional interfaces, that typically don’t require the use of the Cloud Elements data transformation capabilities or Virtual Data Resources. Examples include; Document Storage (E.g. Dropbox), Collaboration (E.g. Slack), E-commerce (E.g. Stripe) and Productivity (E.g. Gmail).
Advanced Element: Elements in this tier represent the majority of the Cloud Elements catalog. There are data-centric application interfaces (REST, SOAP or ODATA), where it is expected that users will require Virtual Data Resources to normalize the format of data. Examples include; CRM (E.g. Salesforce), Human Capital (E.g. SAP SuccessFactors) Marketing Automation (E.g. Marketo) and Accounting/ERP (E.g. Sage or Netsuite).
Enterprise Element: Elements in this tier represent complex enterprise applications – both cloud-based and on-premise. In many cases, guided on boarding will be required to realize the full power and capabilities of these interfaces. Examples include; ERP (SAP R/3, S/4 & S/4 HANA).
An Element Instance is an Element that has been configured and authenticated to an endpoint application. Each time an Element is authenticated with user credentials is created (e.g. Salesforce, Marketo, SAP S4), it will be counted as one Element Instance for the purposes of licensing.
Ground2Cloud (G2C): Allows for secure integration between on-premises applications and the Cloud Elements Platform without restriction. A G2C Client is installed on the on-premises application, opening a persistent tunnel to a G2C server in the CE cloud.
