Developing with IBM App Connect Designer
You can easily use IBM App Connect Designer to connect apps like Salesforce, Marketo, and SAP, so that when an event occurs in one app, or a request is made to an API, the other connected apps are updated automatically.
You can get started without prior knowledge of App Connect or integration, and can choose how you want to get going from a variety of resources:
Designer is an integrated part of IBM App Connect on IBM Cloud
Not got App Connect on IBM Cloud? Sign up easily for the free Lite plan, to get your own instance of App Connect on IBM Cloud. In your App Connect, check out the welcome guide or get started with other resources below.
Want to get hands on quickly, to develop your first integrations?
Start with a template in Designer to create an event-driven flow or API flow; all in a few steps, in minutes. Start simple, or try any of the tutorials. Discover concepts and techniques as you go.
