Our unique Elements are designed to unify the developer experience across all kinds of apps and services. Regardless of your backend implementation – REST, SOAP, Database, etc. – Cloud Elements creates a unified API layer and standards-based implementation across every environment.
Unified APIs are the foundation of the Cloud Elements vision, offering far greater value than simple “connectors”. For example, applications consuming the unified Cloud Elements APIs are insulated from changes to the endpoint APIs. Traditional connectors used in ESB and iPaaS platforms don’t help solve integration challenges that scale to your entire ecosystem.
An ‘Element’ is a prebuilt API integration that enables a connection into a specific cloud application or cloud service endpoint (e.g., Box, Salesforce.com). Our Elements provide a variety of advanced features built in. We offer normalized authentication, discovery APIs, search capabilities, event-driven workflows, unified error handling and so much more.
API integration is much more than just writing to the API – that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Below the surface, developers have to consider authentication mechanisms, discovery APIs, search capabilities, event-driven workflows, and so much more. Our API Integration Platform helps you manage all of it.
