What is the Connection Cloud?
The Connection Cloud by Elastic Intelligence, Inc. is a PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) technology enabling easy access to SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) data in the cloud in real-time.
“For the first time, businesses and business users can access SaaS data in the cloud in real-time, from any source, and integrate data quickly by using the Connection Cloud,” reported the company.
Sippl said that Connection Cloud was addressing the problem – “a new era of islands of information” – created by many new, and increasingly popular, enterprise software services.
As a strategic partner, the cloud-based service allows Yellowfin customers – or any SQL-enabled application, development language or tool – to access, analyze and present their underlying SaaS data where it resides. That is, from its native source (as if all the data resided in a company’s single local SQL-compliant relational database); skipping the many complex and previously non-negotiable integration steps.
