Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Cloud Elements to power our integrations with key platforms. We have received excellent feedback and it reduced our go to market timeline significantly. The platform is configurable and is highly customizable to meet most business needs. We have not received a lot of support issues either.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

At my organization, we use Cloud Elements as a white label solution to provide various integrated solutions to our customers. It's used by our technology department primarily to enable a quick development cycle into creating integrations with products such as QuickBooks Online, MailChimp, etc. The main business problem it solves is the ability for our team to quickly and efficiently create a new connection to a new piece of software that our users might want. Along with that, we don't have to do any of the actual API maintenance that would be required if we were to set up the system on our own.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Cloud Elements to set up integrations between our platform and other technologies that are common to small and medium-sized businesses. It is being used by our product and technology teams but the integration layer is being used by hundreds of our small business customers every day. Cloud Elements allows us to move to bring integrations to market MUCH faster than if we were to build individual integrations to each platform.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our software is focused on helping marketing and content teams streamline the process of content planning and production. These teams often leverage cloud storage providers like Dropbox, Box or Google Drive to store and share their content assets internally, or with third-party creative partners/agencies. We chose to leverage Cloud Elements' Document Cloud to seamlessly integrate all those storage services into our application with one single endpoint. This integration enabled our development team to get multiple connections established all at once and we don't have to worry about keeping up with the variety of API/maintenance updates that each service would require. For our clients, this integration helps to improve collaboration and version control so they can collaborate and produce more efficiently and actually hit their content deadlines...;)

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We had an existing system that relied on using a limited selection of 3rd party Cloud Storage Providers, with plans on making our usage of cloud storage much more tightly integrated with our system and make it look more as part of the system and not some weak tack on. We also had desires of providing our own cloud storage as an option, likely on AWS S3. Our first task was to make sure we supported the existing list of Cloud Storage providers so we looked in to their APIs and it didn't take long to realize that although very similar in functionality we would need to have implementations for each provider meaning that we had to also support updates and changes to each API as well as implement our future features multiple times. With the addition of our desire to add our own cloud storage option it was quickly adding up in development time and ongoing maintenance time. This was more than we could deal with from such a small team while keeping pace on new features to keep us ahead of competition. Researching if anyone else had commented on the same issue of supporting multiple APIs we came across Cloud Elements who offered a Unified API solution. They had a Cloud Storage offering that allows you to develop against a single API provided by Cloud Elements while they take care of the various differences with the Cloud Storage Providers API. On top of covering off all the Storage Providers we were after they were also working on AWS S3 integration.

Cloud Elements Scorecard Summary

About Cloud Elements

Cloud Elements is a cloud API integration service that uses cooperative apps to connect an organization’s customers, partners and employees to the cloud services they use. The vendor says that by using their pre-built elements, their one-to-many approach connects applications with services, each through a single API. The organization’s app can instantly share data with other applications in the cloud, lifting the burden of integration off of businesses and users. Users can design, aggregate and publish their own APIs using the vendor’s Element Builder, which is their RESTful API Designer. This solution includes real-time monitoring, usage, reporting and notifications with enterprise-grade API management.
