The rise of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and the increasing heterogeneity of enterprise applications portfolios and data sources have necessitated a shift to suitable alternatives to traditional integration approaches. Integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS), a sub-segment of PaaS, continues to evolve as an integration approach capable of meeting a wide range of integration needs, including on-premise, cloud, B2B, and mobile application integration.
"Cloud Elements offers a developer-centric iPaaS, marketed as an “API aggregation and management platform” that helps reduce development effort and achieve faster time to value in integration projects. The platform supports multi-tenant integrations, extending the benefits of the underlying "one-to-many" approach to a large number of customers/accounts.In the two year of its existence, Cloud Elements has made good progress, both in terms of the adoption and evolution of its iPaaS solution."
