A developer can use Crowd's remote API to connect your own web applications or user directories to Crowd.
Crowd comes with many pre-built application and directory connectors. If you have a web application or a user directory that does not work with one of the pre-built connectors, your development team can create a custom connector for you. This is a reasonably quick and easy job.
