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.

Dell Cloud Manager (Discontinued)

Dell Cloud Manager (Discontinued) is well suited for a larger organization where there are multiple departments and many users. It could be particularly useful for such an org as it can reduce the time spent on server issues, troubleshooting requirements, etc.
It is not a great use for (like it was for us) small firms or single departments with their own budget. Although the service is excellent, it can get expensive.

Pros

Cloud Elements

  • The API itself is very robust and easy to use, being a standard REST interface, standard HTTP response codes, well-packaged error messages, etc.
  • Their uptime is great! I think I've seen one (short) 5-minute' blip' the entire time we've been connected for any type of primary function.
  • Their support is top notch, they respond quickly, and the team that works with you is communicative and knowledgable.

Cons

Cloud Elements

  • The only thing I can think of that they could improve is the quality of the assets they produce in the go-to-market process. This is a huge value add service, but the quality of what was produced was lower than what we would have produced internally. We spent more time going back and forth on the assets than it would have taken us to build them from scratch.
