Cloud Elements product overview

What is Cloud Elements?

Demand for integrations increases each year as application networks become ecosystems. More and more users need to aggregate and contextualize data in order to act on that information or automate processes. SAP estimates that API integration work will account for as much as 50% of the time and cost of building a digital platform.

Key benefits of using Cloud Elements

- Cloud Elements is purpose-built for embedded integration in software products (i.e. headless) - every resource in the platform is available via API, even your custom Elements and Formulas.

- Multi-tenanted, reusable integration resources: with other integration platforms, there’s work to be done to create the back-end resources that support each users unique integration instances; Cloud Elements eliminates this work.

- Cloud Elements offers developers normalized methods (REST/JSON) & enhances native endpoints with functionality few support, like webhooks and bulk data operations, saving developers time researching each API.

- Extensible tooling: Element Builder allows a developer to customize an existing Element by adding resources in minutes or build new first-class, fully-reusable, and automatically documented connectors.

- Virtual Data Resources (VDRs) allow application developers to create a single, virtual representation of any object (e.g., Customer, Contact, Employee) and transform the disparate data models from many applications in a category, say CRMs, into a single, standardized, canonical model that is easily maintained and supported.

The Hub elements are great. Being able to build one integration and have it work for multiple data sources is awesome.

Sometimes you have to look into multiple instances to find the root cause of an error.

It is *extremely* difficult for a new user to learn, especially if they are not a computer science major.

Cloud Elements helps out with data collaboration, integrating different API's extremely well.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

We use Cloud Elements helps us connect to cloud documents and and hubs of other cloud services. The uniform API is extremely easy to use and well worth it when you gain access to all other elements. Authentication is consistent and easy & we love that our apps are now so cooperative. Number one for easy of use.

Cons

Eventually we all ran into an issue using the uniform API & getting identical data pulls from all our cloud services. Data would pull with slight delays which meant waiting an extra second here or there. Even with these minor faults, we are much more productive.

One Hub To Rule Them All

Reviewed 5 years ago

I like how simple it is to leverage. The console is easy to navigate and elements are quickly added for most services. The support team is crazy responsive and the development team listens to their customers. Cloud Elements handles a lot of the integration concerns such as mapping, transformation and even work flows. I integrate systems and applications all day long. Cloud Elements is able to reduce the time and effort required to provide quality solutions to my clients. By consolidating APIs into a single endpoint and leveraging custom objects, mappings and transformations, I can deliver higher quality solutions in less time.

Pros

Cloud Elements handles a lot of the integration concerns such as mapping, transformation and even work flows.

Cons

The release cadence for the development team has been remarkable over the past year, but I'd like to see more elements! Some of the user experience in the console needs to be revisited to make it easier for some use cases. I've experienced a few issues with outages, but there is clear communication on when these things occur. Make sure you account for these scenarios during development.

Cons

We use cloud elements to integrate with our customers' file sources

Reviewed 4 years ago

A vast pool of services, all identically presented to our software

Pros

We're always getting new customers with new technologies to integrate with, and I have oodles of trust that we'll be able to just point our software at a different cloud element source, without having to change anything else about our application.

Cons

Initial setup was difficult; we were hoping to have a webapp file browser without writing it ourselves.
