Cloud Elements Named a Visionary by Gartner!

By Ross Garrett in API Industry Trends Posted May 10, 2018

Cloud Elements is a visionary on Gartner's 2018 Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management. We have re-imagined the world of API and application integration - unifying the world’s APIs and making it easier for developers to focus on the data they care about. It’s a mission we’re passionate about, and we’re proud to announce that Gartner has recognized our API Integration Platform as a visionary in their Full Life Cycle API Management Magic Quadrant for 2018!

Cloud Elements Gartner Magic Quadrant

In a complex and crowded landscape, our ability to simplify the consumption and integration of 3rd party APIs is highly differentiating. With a catalog of more than 150 prebuilt API-based connectors (Elements), our platform enables developers to integrate to leading enterprise cloud & on-prem applications without needing to be experts in every API.

 Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) API Management

We’re also included in the Gartner’s 2018 Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service Magic Quadrant - making us the only vendor appearing in both of these key API integration focused MQs with a single product offering, supporting both API management and app integration use cases.

We have focused on making API integration easier for developers, and our approach using Unified APIs (Elements) and Virtual Data Resources (VDRs), is fundamentally different from every other integration platform in the market today - and Gartner agrees!

From talking to our own customers, and from the research published by Gartner, most organizations are quickly finding that their existing integration approaches are simply not delivering fast enough to meet the new challenges - and it’s a problem getting exponentially worse with the number of enterprise SaaS applications and therefore APIs exploding. For SaaS providers themselves, owning the integration experience is a matter of competitive advantage - not just an offer of completeness.
