DENVER and ORLANDO, Fla., June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At the SAPPHIRE NOW 2018 conference this week, SAP launched SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors, a purpose built API integration platform leveraging the Cloud Elements catalog of feature-rich connectors to over 150 leading enterprise SaaS applications. This is the first OEM deal with SAP for Cloud Elements, the leading API integration provider.  

The SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors product will be available to customers of the SAP Cloud Cockpit and will also work seamlessly with SAP API Business Hub. 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.

Cloud Elements is widely known for its Virtual Data Resources, a sophisticated, yet easy, approach to seamlessly integrate enterprise applications - designed for developers and enterprise architects alike. In today’s fast moving and increasingly cloud-centric enterprise, many organizations have more than 1000 cloud services in use, and require robust application integration and data governance to realize the most benefit from these applications.

“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,” said Mark Geene, CEO and Co-founder of Cloud Elements. “Cloud Elements enables SAP to provide customers with a pre-built integration solution across all leading enterprise applications. By simply plugging in to our virtual data resources, every enterprise can become an intelligent enterprise and focus on the data they care about.”

Announced today at SAPPHIRE NOW 2018, the Cloud Elements platform - branded SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors - will allow SAP customers to easily integrate SAP and non-SAP applications using a single unified integration platform.
