CLOUD ELEMENTS IS PARTNERING WITH SAP TO POWER 150 INTEGRATIONS IN THE SAP CLOUD PLATFORM OPEN CONNECTORS
SAP customers will have access to our entire catalog, including our two newest Elements, S/4 and R/3 to integrate across a multitude of different use cases. The integration use cases for SAP customers include:
- Hire-to-Retire using our Human Capital Management Elements,
- Quote to Cash using our Finance and CRM Elements or to
- Simplify API design to accelerate go-to-market for new applications using existing data.
The initial focus of the partnership will offer integration capabilities within the SAP Cloud Platform, and will quickly expand to other integration and automation scenarios across multiple SAP business units, branded as SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors.
“We built Cloud Elements in anticipation of the large demand within an enterprise organization to control and manage their cloud applications in real time. Legacy “point-to-point” integration patterns couldn’t scale in a cloud-centric enterprise environment - something SAP has recognized and addressed with our new strategic relationship.”
- Mark Geene, CEO and Co-founder of Cloud Elements.
Integrating to a normalized SAP Element is unique in its own right, but it's our Virtual Data Model that really fuels digital transformation. Enterprise organizations now have the ability to centralize their data structure into canonical data models, that can be replicated to and from their SAP applications and across a growing catalog of 150+ cloud applications.
“Cloud Elements enables SAP to provide customers with a pre-built integration solution across all leading enterprise applications. By simply plugging into our virtual data resources, every enterprise can become an intelligent enterprise and focus on the data they care about.” - Mark Geene, CEO and Co-founder of Cloud Elements.
