Great team to work with, flexible, knowledgeable and willing to help.

2017-08-08

Pros

Users can try to troubleshoot on their on real time. Users don't have to be coders or engineers to have to use.

Cons

Sometimes you have to look into multiple instances to find the root cause of an error. But I'm sure that is just the nature of how it's coded.

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

2018-02-08

Pros

The uniform API is extremely easy to use and well worth it when you gain access to all other elements.

Cons

Eventually we all ran into an issue using the uniform API & getting identical data pulls from all our cloud services.

One Hub To Rule Them All

2017-03-06

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

Some of the user experience in the console needs to be revisited to make it easier for some use cases.

Recommendations to others considering Cloud Elements

Talk to somebody who has done a few implementations with the Element or API you are looking at consuming. Also, make sure to get in the console and play around.

We have worked closely with Cloud Elements to build a Ground2Cloud connector for us.

2017-08-17

Pros

Being able to build one integration and have it work for multiple data sources is awesome!

Cons

Getting the connector setup and working has been a little difficult to get off the ground but the communication has been great throughout.

Great way to integrate systems easily and without that much of experience from similar cases.

2017-08-18

Pros

Built-in functionalities and UI's drag&drop type of ways to configurate settings.

Cons

Even though it's easy to use there is so much things you just have to know and try before actually getting the things done.

2017-08-08

Pros

nothing so far, we have not had any success with any integration, I haven't used the software first had to say what I like just the end result, which I don't.

Cons

down time and ease of use, our customers are asking for refunds due to the time when CE was down and we have not had a successful integration as of yet.

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

2017-08-08

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.

Cloud Elements

2017-11-15

Pros

The console is easy to navigate and elements are quickly added for most services.

Cons

It is *extremely* difficult for a new user to learn, especially if they are not a computer science major. It seems like there should possibly be some sort of templating or a wizard to walk through basic element
