  • One of the most common customer use cases that I encountered while on our Sales Engineering team was the ability for our customer’s application to detect and react to changes in a given endpoint service - such as a when new contact is added in Hubspot or an invoice is updated in Quickbooks.

  • I’ve heard the phrase “compliance is hard” thrown around here lately at Cloud Elements and yes, it is hard - I think that we can all agree on that.

  • The Pony Express was a very short-lived integration platform back in the late 1850s. It provided a way to deliver mail from east-coast to west-coast before major transportation links existed. Riders would collect mail packages from St. Joseph, Missouri and then head west at full speed - stopping every 10 miles or so at a Pony Express station to switch to a fresh horse. Every 75 miles or so, the...

  • Our Elements are the root of what we do, but don’t call them Connectors, it doesn’t do them justice. Their job is to provide a standard way to connect to endpoints, regardless of the nuances of each given endpoint, and frankly, is not as easy as it sounds.

  • While given a common name, not all integration platforms as a service (iPaaS) are built the same, in fact far from it. Much like purchasing a car, the destination of adding integrations to your product may look the same, but getting there (and how fast) can be wildly different. While there are many resources that help you ask the right questions when car shopping, there is relatively little whe...

  • Today's software customers don't just want integration, they expect your application or software offering to work with the other apps they already use right out of the box. They don't want to figure it out on their own, or worse have to solely engage with a third-party to enable integrations tasks. It's clear that modern SaaS companies, digital enterprises, and platform providers need to make i...

  • These days every company's software stack is like a machine with hundreds of parts all hacked together. Each cloud application is just one of those parts, and customers need it to work with every one of the other applications that they already use.

  • What is SOC 2? SOC 2 is a standard developed by the AICPA which specifies security protocols for data storage. In contrast to SOC 1, which focuses on the security of financial data, SOC 2 is required for all companies that store any proprietary customer data in the cloud, which is just about every SaaS provider. Achieving SOC 2 compliance is about more than just data encryption; it encompasses...
