Appirio CloudWorks Cloud Integration Platform Gets Update

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.
