    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.

    If you are evaluating SAP products, it is easy to get started with the SAP Cloud Appliance Library. Cost comparisons are provided. On-premise solutions are easily tested by non-IT users. It is simple to use at a low cost. I recommend anyone evaluating SAP products to try it out.

    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.

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

    You could do it yourself, or wait for your hosting provider to provide it, but that takes time.
