OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwire - January 26, 2010) - Jitterbit, the leading provider of powerful, flexible & easy-to-use data and application integration, today announced a year of record growth in both its revenues and new customer engagements. On the heels of this momentum, Jitterbit also announced a new addition to its executive team with the appointment of Steve Yount as vice president of sales and marketing.

The need to "do more with less" fueled demand for flexible, cost-effective data integration solutions in 2009. Using Jitterbit, technical business analysts are able to connect legacy systems and on-premise enterprise applications with today's growing cloud computing infrastructure. In addition to more than 100 percent growth in revenues, other company milestones include:

-- Jitterbit 3.0 Enterprise released for high volume transactions and expanded connectivity options designed to address large-scale enterprise integrations.

As Jitterbit's new vice president of sales and marketing, Yount will help to develop overall corporate strategy and focus on building and maintaining customer and partner relationships. Bringing more than 20 years of sales leadership, business development and relationship marketing experience, Yount has led two software companies to more than $100 million in revenues and has held senior positions at IBM, Uccel, Legent, Neuron Data and Symix amassing knowledge in enterprise software, web services, hosted applications, subscription services and e-business products.

"In 2009 we experienced increased demand for Jitterbit as companies worked to leverage legacy data by integrating it with cloud and SaaS systems. Jitterbit delivers greater flexibility and value by allowing technical business analysts to easily build and manage otherwise complex integration projects," said Sharam Sasson, founder and CEO of Jitterbit. "We're entering the new year bullish on continued growth as the market returns, and we are thrilled to welcome Steve Yount to the executive team to help us guide major initiatives and build customer relationships in the year ahead."
