It must be SaaS upgrade season – the Appirio CloudWorks platform, which enables enterprises and MSPs alike to move data from on-premise into the public cloud by way of providers including Google Apps and Salesforce.com, has gotten an update. New in the CloudWorks May 2011 release: various usability tweaks, beta implementations for Box.net and Jive, configurable fields and more.
Here’s the scoop on the new features, taken straight from the official blog entry:
Configurable fields – you can now select which standard or custom Salesforce fields for display and edit on the Contact, Account, and Opportunity apps
Activity stream – you can optionally display latest Activities, instead of latest Chatter, for record details
App Chooser – allows users to select other CloudWorks apps in addition to the currently displayed matching app
Create a Contact – you can now specify Title, Phone, and Mobile
Debug mode, which allows users and Appirio support personnel to see detailed debug info to help diagnose problems
Prototype versions of CloudWorks apps for Box.net and Jive
Support for Salesforce orgs that enforce IP range restrictions
Better handling of situations that previously required users to clear their browser cache
“Quick Start” configuration for newly created CloudWorks tenants, to make it easier to create demo or test tenants
Appirio CloudWorks fills a unique role in the cloud services channel – where companies like AweSync focus on migrating data from one app directly into another, CloudWorks seems to have an intriguing focus on the cloud as a holistic whole, moving data at large into the SaaS application that makes most sense.
We’ll be tracking Appirio closely going forward, so stay tuned to TalkinCloud.
