Olga Annenko feature-alert 0 Comments

Integration Components Special in September

Our usual Feature Alerts are almost exclusively about new or improved features and functionalities of the elastic.io platform. Yet integration components are what makes any integration platform as a service a true magic wand in the hands of integrators.

That is why we decided to dedicate one complete Feature Alert to new and updated integration components only. Below you will find all the integration components and their updates that we released in August and September 2017.

What to expect in the coming weeks:

In addition to extending our components list, we continue working on improving the so called Local Agent – the part of the elastic.io iPaaS that allows tying together multiple SaaS products with on-premise systems and databases. The first release of the updated Local Agent is expected next week already!

Additionally, we are working on the internationalization (now try to say this word aloud and fast!) of the elastic.io interface. Soon there will be no more “English-only”.

Last but least there are going to be some more cool integration components. But more on this later.

Stay tuned for our next newsletter!
