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

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.

  • Requires SME to get the full ROI first year
  • Requires a culture change for Agile Automation
  • Price could be less (not cheap)

The tool can automate almost any workflow and infrastructure consumption. It has state of the art develop and support with great online training, online full manual set, and a comprehensive support team and network of SIs/VARS that are very qualified.

Alternatives Considered

Cloud Elements

At the time we found Cloud Elements we found no other option that had a Unified API for cloud storage providers.

VMware is too hard to use, too expensive to support, and not a full lifecycle tool for workflows and Infrastructure (no support of physical either).AWS or Azure or Google solutions are good if you are only in the cloud and only using their tools. Not good if you have on-prem or non-Cloud based tools/infrastructure.Build it yourself automation frameworks can be good for people with unlimited funds, but they are not the best way to go and missing many capabilities typically.

  • Not my area of expertise, but it made my job as an implementer much easier, especially after finishing the first integration.
