If you'll be working with 3 or more integration services you might need to use Mule.

Cloud Elements

Cloud Elements shines when you want to offer multiple options to the user on a type of system, such as supporting integration to CRM and wanting to offer Dynamics, Salesforce, and HubSpot on equal footing. If you only have a single integration with a single system, using Cloud Elements adds an unnecessary layer of abstraction.

Pros

  • If you are working with 3 or more services to integrate with a different data source, you'll be able to see the benefits of using Mule.
  • In terms of usability, you can develop an API even not fluent in any programming languages.
  • Mule also provides a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus.

  • Maps a single integration to multiple systems, cutting down on the time and complexity to support multiple systems
  • Robust and interactive documentation that guides the developer every step of the way
  • Responsive and friendly customer success that supports your team's efforts

Cons

  • Responsive IDE. More likely they need to improve the IDE as it lags whenever you are working with 20-30 APIs in a package.

  • When Cloud Elements rolled out their "Admin Console 2.0" it was a rough launch with many bugs
  • Cloud Elements has a large variety of integrations, but certain desirable systems (EG, Workday or Xero) are not covered in their catalog
  • Providing a truly unified API that returns the same format of data from each system requires writing transforms for each endpoint rather than it being an out-of-the-box feature

Alternatives Considered

MuleSoft is also a similar product to Cloud Elements, but is not available as an option in this form.

Workato and MuleSoft are competing cloud API connector platforms that perform a similar function to Cloud Elements. We chose Cloud Elements over them because CE provided a more robust path to unifying the behavior of connected systems.

Zapier is a workflow automation tool that I feel draws erroneous comparison to Cloud Elements that I need to highlight. Workflow automation tools (Zapier, IFTTT, Microsoft Flow) do provide multiple integrations, but for simplistic scenarios where only a handful of explicitly described steps need accomplished. Cloud Elements is a platform for developers to deliver faster and with higher reliability than making integrations one-by-one in complex systems that solve demanding problems.

Return on Investment

  • Time and energy saved.
  • In the initial stages, this tool is little tuff to understand but will love it once you know how to use it.
  • Powerful tool.

  • Greatly reduced development and testing time for our project.
  • Allowed us the ability to offer more integrations than we could have done without the Unified API.
  • Will reduce our support needs as we only need to integrate with one API and Cloud Elements will be the ones responsible for the maintenance needs of integrating with the Cloud Storage providers.
