Cloud Elements, an API integration provider, today announced a strategic partnership with Axway, a catalyst for transformation, to deliver 20 new connectors for the API Builder in the Axway AMPLIFY™ platform, a hybrid integration and engagement platform enabling the delivery of immersive digital experiences. The partnership will help enterprises accelerate connectivity to applications for new ecosystem-driven business models and revenue streams.
Together with Cloud Elements, Axway will be able to extend the hybrid cloud integration features of the AMPLIFY API Management solution that is part of Axway AMPLIFY to create a digital ecosystem without borders. With immediate access to over 20 of the most popular Elements out of the large Cloud Elements’ Catalog, Axway customers will have unified and productized integration capabilities to the leading cloud applications. Those connectors cover market leading solutions in the CRM, marketing suites, cloud storage, service management and social media areas. The solution enables API developers to work with simple yet feature-rich connectors to create high-value APIs and focus on building differentiating digital user experiences on mobile, web and IoT.
Suraj Kumar, General Manager and VP Platform-as-a-Service at Axway, explains why cloud integration capabilities are key to enhancing the customer experience: “We are focused on enabling API developers to quickly connect applications to data sources and services. Providing our customers a broad range of connectors across commonly used cloud apps and services allows API developers to accelerate delivery while maintaining creativity and control. We chose Cloud Elements because of its unique approach to integration – its ‘Elements’ provide far more comprehensive capability and usability, which our enterprise customers require.”
Cloud Elements’ Element Builder, an integration tool to extend the capabilities of connectors or build new Elements from scratch, has been enhanced to integrate with the Axway AMPLIFY platform. This API Builder enhancement significantly decreases Axway’s time to market for integrating Third Party Cloud Services, and ensures the resilience of these integrations, as Cloud Elements ensures the maintenance, monitoring and version control of these connectors.
“Our partnership with Axway is one more step towards Cloud Elements’ vision of distributing our Elements (connectors) across leading API platforms. Together we are transforming the customer experience and shifting the burden of integration away from the developer,” said Cloud Elements CEO and Co-Founder Mark Geene. “Axway will have access to our rapidly expanding catalog of more than 130 elements, each with built-in features that make integration faster, easier to use, and more reliable.”
