“Currently, we do not intend to hack as many different integration apps as possible. There is no point in competing with Zapier or IFTTT on that point, because when it comes to offering a broad selection of ready-to-use integration solutions, they are doing an extremely good job. Besides, elastic.io is in the first place an integration platform with connectors for different applications. Our initial focus was on the actual use cases of the companies that approached us. All that being said, now we see that it’s time for elastic.io Connect to become a separate product. We’re really looking forward to working on new and even more comprehensive integration apps.”
