Many companies jumped on the software as a service (SaaS) bandwagon because that cloud-delivery model gets their applications up and running fast and uniformly across geographies and business units. On the flip side, SaaS vendors have recreated the same sort of seperate data silos that plagued the client-server computing era.
That’s the problem database pioneer Roger Sippl is attacking with Connection Cloud, his startup that aims not only to free up that SaaS data using the SaaS company’s own APIs and Connection Cloud’s own connectors.
It’s not easy to get Salesforce.com data to work with NetSuite data, for example. Connection Cloud is working on connectors for those popular applications as well as for Intacct, Facebook, Eloqua, Google Spreadsheets, Zuora and others, to connect that data to front ends like Jaspersoft, Tableau, Yellowfin, Microsoft Excel and Access, Zendesk scripting, Appcelerator mobile app building tools and Google Appscript. The goal is to let businesses funnel their data from SaaS repositories into their analytical tool of choice which they can use to parse it and combine with other data as needed.
