Cloud Elements Unifies API Management and iPaaS; New Entrant in Two Gartner Magic Quadrants Validates Strategy

Only Unified Platform Recognized in Both Application Service Governance and Enterprise iPaaS, Worldwide Magic Quadrants

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Apr 20, 2015) - Cloud Elements, a cloud API integration, aggregation and management service, today announced inclusion in two Gartner Magic Quadrant reports. The company is positioned in the "Visionaries" Quadrant of Gartner's 2015 Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance for completeness of vision. Additionally, Cloud Elements is positioned as a Niche Player in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service, Worldwide. Inclusion in the recent reports validate the company's position as the only unified platform to combine API Management and iPaaS.

"In just over two years, Cloud Elements has burst onto the API management and integration scene with a dramatically simplified, yet powerful approach," said Mark Geene, founder and CEO at Cloud Elements. "Inclusion in these two Gartner Magic Quadrant reports further validates our position that API management and iPaaS should be one platform and our unique method that brings an API management approach to the world of integration."

Cloud Elements' API Manager is a unified platform that combines the key capabilities of iPaaS (integration Platform-as-a-Service) and API Management.

The unified platform offers four key capabilities:

  • Publish: Ability to design, document and publish RESTful APIs that you build, buy or use
  • Integrate: Rapidly expand your library of pre-built connectors, "Elements," to popular cloud services
  • Aggregate: Abstract and organize API resources across multiple endpoints into categories of uniform APIs for more rapid integration to multiple cloud services
  • Manage: Authentication, real-time event management, data transformations, usage and monitoring services to manage all your APIs and Integrations in one place
