ALAMEDA, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2016) - Jitterbit, the leading provider of fast, agile integration solutions for the modern enterprise, today announced that its cloud-based platform will be a fully embedded feature in Autodesk's lastest product lifecycle management solution, Fusion Lifecycle (previously known as Autodesk PLM 360). Jitterbit's intuitive user interface and integration templates make it easy for everyday users to connect Fusion Lifecycle with third-party applications in just seconds, automating common tasks across different systems.
As modern businesses take advantage of numerous apps within a single line of business, the ability to connect different applications to streamline business processes quickly and easily becomes critical. However, building these connections has typically been slow and time-consuming, and demands specialized IT resources. By embedding the Jitterbit cloud connectivity in to Fusion Lifecycle, Autodesk extends its new product lifecycle management solution across the entire organization, empowering users to instantly connect processes in real time across different applications instead of relying on custom-built integrations.
The new Event Manager feature within Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle is a game changer for traditional integration approaches with "flows" that deliver immediate efficiencies across numerous third-party applications. In Event Manager, users can browse through different applications and simply click on their choice to pull up a menu of timesaving integration options.
For example, at companies that leverage both Autodesk and Zendesk, users can employ Event Manager to automatically create a ticket in Zendesk each time there is a new task item created in Fusion Lifecycle. The integration also works both ways, so that every time a new organization is created in Zendesk a corresponding new customer item is automatically created in Fusion Lifecycle.
"Jitterbit's embedded integration capabilities play a key role in Fusion Lifecycle's evolution as a connected platform that moves beyond the previously disconnected approach to product management," said Ron Locklin, Director of Lifecycle Solutions at Autodesk. "Jitterbit's speed, performance and scale made it a great partner to serve the needs of thousands of Autodesk customers looking to break down administrative siloes."
"Autodesk's decision to embed the Jitterbit integration platform in its groundbreaking product lifecycle management solution advances a long and productive partnership between our companies," said Jitterbit Vice President of Marketing and Alliances Andrew Leigh. "We're incredibly excited to help Autodesk customers create streamlined processes that amplify the value of different applications across the organization and eliminate the need to manually execute tasks across siloed systems."
