A connected apps platform is a single platform that allows anyone in an organization to easily build and customize apps using real-time, shared company data. When you seamlessly connect everyone and everything, anything is possible.
As organizations become more complex, so do their challenges. Teams turn to disparate tools in an effort to move faster, which create siloes and makes data inaccessible to other teams. This results in company-wide misalignment, miscommunication, and inefficiency. Organizations are forced to choose between moving fast, or moving together— a choice they shouldn’t have to make.

A connected apps platform starts with shared company data—a single source of truth—that powers all workflows and ensures work moves together. Anyone on any team—at any technical skill level—can build custom apps that best support their workflows. These apps are connected to all the other apps that live on the same platform. The result: teams are able to work autonomously, while moving in sync with the rest of the organization.
With the Airtable Connected Apps Platform™, teams build custom apps for their own workflows—from managing campaigns to launching products to tracking vendors—using real-time, shared data on a company-wide platform.Read the datasheet

A connected apps platform allows anyone in an organization to use shared data to build and customize apps. It has built-in tools that enable organizations to deploy, manage, and scale connected apps across multiple teams.
With Airtable, anyone can build a custom app to power any workflow, whether it's to manage the product roadmap, launch marketing campaigns, or track vendors. Intuitive app-building tools make it easy for those closest to the work to build flexible, powerful apps, without any technical expertise.

Let's say a team creates an app for a specific use case, such as a content calendar. With Airtable, you can easily connect data from that content calendar app in real-time to other teams who need it for their workflows. So when a single record is updated in that app, that data is automatically updated in all the other apps it's connected to. This gives every team visibility into changes as they occur, so they can move in sync.
More than 380,000 customers use the Airtable Connected Apps Platform™ today to transform their work. By building connected apps on the Airtable platform, teams are better aligned, drive faster business results, enhance team productivity, and mitigate security risks.
