The way we do business is changing, and a big part of that change comes from the increased prevalence of software as a service (SaaS). Some of the most critical components of a business' operations are often handled through a remote service accessed through a web hub, but once you start making use of multiple SaaS applications, managing your servers and access can become complicated. That's where elastic.io comes in. Marketed as a hybrid integration platform, elastic.io makes sure that the SaaS applications you use most frequently can easily interface with your local and proprietary software, more effectively connecting this software to your company's private "internet of things". The problem with integrating remote services to your proprietary systems is that each uses its own API. Connecting them to your systems can be a laborious affair, and one that you have to keep repeating whenever you make major changes to your own software or add a new SaaS to your interface. elastic.io bypasses these complications through the use of connectors that automatically bridge the distance between local and long distance affairs. These connectors cover a wide range of areas that your business need to keep running productively like customer relationship management, marketing automation, and development, and standard connectors are immediately available for some of the most popular SaaS platforms like Mail Chimp, Salesforce, and Microsoft SQL Server. Users can easily create their own connectors for SaaS APIs that aren't supported, or they can request the development of new connectors directly with the development team at elastic.io. They're generally responsive and happy to help their users customize specific connectors for the needs of their businesses. A whole range of API connectors don't mean much if they aren't effective. Thankfully, elastic.io boasts a reduction of 80% on the time needed to set up connections to an SaaS platform. For companies making use of a wide range of SaaS programs, this can be a major way to save time and money, and it can also reduce the long-term costs associated with maintenance and troubleshooting. Once your connectors are set up, you can count on them to respond dynamically to data spikes, and the custom integration components allow you more control over the aesthetics and practical application of the connectors within your own proprietary software. The designer interface gives administrators full control, and it's both cleanly designed and intuitive to use. The elastic.io platform comes with a wide and respectable range of customer support options. Their documentation is easy to understand and dense, providing everything from the fundamentals of integration into deep level development. Now matter how deep you want to go into the software, you'll have the tools you need to find creative solutions to your problems. They also maintain a full-time and responsive customer service team to help users and developers with any problems they may face.
