We closed a seed investment round.
It’s been a long time we haven’t posted on our blog. Now this time is over and we are opening a new page in elastic.io history. This is an important announcement we were working for last couple of month.
We would like to announce that we have closed a significant seed investment round with a group of private investors in Germany.
We will use these resources to significantly speed up the product development, sales and marketing efforts. We will have more power to innovate and iterate quickly, and we already have two new products which will be released very soon.
Improved CSV Writer
In our last blog post we covered updates and improvements in CSV Reader, this one will show you our new CSV Writer.
Introducing CSV Reader
Today we introduce a significant update to our CSV Connector. We had an ability to write out CSV files before but over the last couple of weeks we made a significant enhancements to CSV Write and added CSV Read action.
elastic.io build and deployment pipline
This blog post will shortly describe how are building and delivering our product every day. When we started with this automation we tried many different tools our there. Our goal was to implement a automated best-of-breed build and deployment pipeline without installing and maintaining our-own development, continuous integration or version control servers.
Featured customer: sphere.io
We are happy to present one of our customers - SPHERE.IO a product of Commercetools GmbH.
Made by developers for developers SPHERE.IO is the most versatile cloud-based commerce platform. You can call it Software-as-a-Service or Platform-as-a-Service. We call it Cloud Commerce OS.
The idea of sphere.io is very simple yet amazing - use API to decouple user experience from the backend. E-Commerce companies are just like other IT/Internet businesses facing new mobile challenges. Tablets have significantly changed the shopping behavior. Smartphone users are demanding on-the-go experience. Another e-commerce challenge is that products are no longer simple like ‘once-piece-one-price red t-shirt’ but the digital goods or subscriptions. Answer for both of these challenges is a sphere.io Cloud Commerce OS. It’s a flexible, api-based backend as a service product where front-end can be programmed easily on top of it, being it a native iOS or Android App, web-site, TV app or all of these.
New apps available for integration
In the last weeks we have been very busy developing our SDK that will allow API providers to integrate into elastic.io integration platform with ease. The progress looks quite good so far. Because we are eating our own dog food, we started implementing APIs using our SDK. Here is the list of new APIs available at elastic.io platform that have been implemented using our SDK:
As you can see, all these APIs are implemented in a descriptive way. We use Swagger with a bunch of minor extensions for API description. Additionally every description may have programmatic extensions. The full documentation of the SDK will be announced in a separate blog post.
Apart from that we are happy to announce the SFTP app that allows you to read and write files on a remote SFTP server. Now you can scan a directory of a SFTP server for new files and trigger an integration flow for each new file. Also upload of a file to a SFTP server is a “piece of cake” now.
Presenting our SDK at RuhrJUG Essen
The talk takes place from at Unperfekthaus, which is a very nice location, and starts at 6:30 pm. Don’t miss this event if you want to learn about Cloud Integration or if you are interested in contributing to a Cloud Integration Platform.
