We started building the Connection Cloud in 2008 to bring productive order to the exponentially growing challenge of accessing data in the cloud.
Intuit’s QuickBase customers are creative problem solvers who use a pioneering cloud platform to easily create customized applications on their own – no IT or engineering degree needed. Yet they increasingly struggle with integrating data across multiple systems that are often fragmented, and might be hosted in both the enterprise and the cloud.
Today we are happy to announce that the Elastic Intelligence team, innovators of the Connection Cloud, is joining Intuit, and its QuickBase team. As the industry has moved to a more connected world, we at Elastic Intelligence have created a simple and graceful solution to make it easy to share data in the cloud. As part of Intuit, we will provide a game-changing experience, making cloud data easily available to do-it-yourself app builders using the QuickBase platform, without the need for expensive developers or complex API programming.
We can’t wait to begin working with Intuit, and the team is excited about what the future holds for us. Together we’ll be on the leading edge of cloud computing, offering a platform where resourceful employees can easily create customized SaaS applications that access and share the data in their other business systems to drive productivity.
Looking ahead, we see a future where QuickBase will no longer be only for creating new “greenfield” applications, but could be a cockpit for information workers to use their scattered data securely in one place, using “virtual tables” in their QuickBase applications.
For now, it’s business as usual for customers. We look forward to sharing more as the united QuickBase team begins working together.
Looking back, it has been an incredible journey and we’d like to thank everyone who has played such an important part along the way. Now onward with Intuit!
