What is the AWS Marketplace?
The AWS Marketplace is an online store that helps customers find, buy, and immediately start using the software and services they need to build products and run their businesses. AWS Marketplace complements programs like the Amazon Partner Network and is another example of AWS’s commitment to growing a strong ecosystem of software and solution partners.
Who should shop on AWS Marketplace?
People interested in commercial and free IT and business software, including software infrastructure, developer tools, and business applications should visit AWS Marketplace.
This is an exciting time for AWS developers who are looking to enhance and increase the speed at which they develop applications. For the first time, they can now integrate to the SaaS apps they need for rapid app development leveraging the Cloud Elements platform which is tied to their existing AWS account. With the Cloud Elements platform built into the AWS Marketplace, AWS developers will have access to our catalog of 120+ Elements (or connectors) ranging from social applications like Instagram and Twitter, to finance applications like Quickbooks and Expensify, to CRM and Marketing applications like Salesforce and Marketo. In addition, developers will gain access to our robust API integration platform, handling the full lifecycle of an integration from authentication to data mapping to event orchestration.
Why Cloud Elements?
“The Cloud Elements platform provides developers access to a broad catalog of API endpoints that are normalized across multiple cloud services, such as CRM, Finance and eCommerce apps, facilitating a much more productive way to build integrations directly out of the AWS Marketplace vs. the traditional point-to-point approach,” said Dave McCann, Vice President, AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “AWS customers are looking for ways to leverage application integration they can incorporate into their solutions and AWS Marketplace offers Cloud Elements a channel to give customers easy procurement, consumption-based pricing, and costs integrated into their existing AWS bill.”
From our CEO, Mark Geene:
“We’ve set out to organize the world of APIs in categories of cloud services with a one-to-many approach towards integration, and have had tremendous success in doing so. And now, in collaboration with Amazon Web Services, we are pioneering the next step beyond integration to offer the first open API Distribution platform,” said Cloud Elements CEO, Mark Geene. “API Distribution is an exciting new space for us to innovate in, not only will service providers be able to publish their APIs into our growing catalog of integration, but they will now be able to distribute their API to the world’s leading API marketplace, the Amazon AWS Marketplace. It’s truly an exciting time to be one of the first vendors to automate the publishing of our APIs into the AWS Marketplace, and offer a new channel for customers to purchase our integrations.”
For a limited time, all Cloud Elements API Integrations can be purchased as a special promotional price of $0.05 / API call. To get started, click here.
