We’re thrilled to announce our newest Heavybit member Kloudless – a company that provides developers with universal APIs enabling them to connect to many enterprise applications and data sources using a single integration. Supported services include file storage, CRM, calendar, and more.
In order to fully leverage the cloud and sell software, application developers must integrate their software with the services that enterprises are already using. But most integrations require consulting application-specific docs, auth schemes, object data, data formats and functionality. The resulting hairball of connected microservices requires hours of work to set up and ongoing vigilance to maintain.
With Kloudless, over 3,000 organizations save time on integration and maintenance by using simple RESTful Universal APIs to manage their business applications.
Kloudless is Berkeley-based and backed by prominent investors including Draper Fisher Jurvetson Managing Director Tim Draper and Yammer founder David Sacks. As of today, they’ll also be Heavybit’s newest member company. Please join us in welcoming the Kloudless founders Eliot, Vinod and Tim to the Heavybit community.
