Cloud Elements, an API integration provider has moved ahead to make an announcement regarding its new collaboration with International Business Machines Corp (NYSE:IBM)
in a move to push for the delivery of a series of new connectors in IBM App Connect, the provider’s ultimate integration platform, that is expected to move quite a long way to assist users quickly connect apps to automate talks as well as provide a major lift to productivity.
The main goal of the new collaboration will be to see it that IBM’s App Connect catalog is made more accessible. As a matter of fact, the number of users is set to rise by quite some large proportion.
The good news to all the IBM customers is that they will in the near future be able to leverage on the different applications within the complex App Connect interface to get notifications, automate integrations, sync data and track outcomes in opposition to the recent approach which forced users to manually perform the integrated tasks. From a historical perspective, they have been regarded as high touch and repetitive as well.
The Director of Application Integration at IBM, Tony Curcio in a statement said, “We chose Cloud Elements because of their novel canonical data and object model which normalizes connectivity to cloud applications. This approach helps accelerate IBM’s time to market for these new connectors in IBM App Connect. In working with Cloud Elements, we look forward to a significant reduction in the development time, cost and maintenance for our platform.”
Some top business analysts have for some time now been advising the provider to do all within his means to increase its capacity to carry out marketing for the third-party cloud services as well as get to eliminate the various maintenance concerns.
