Jitterbit Named 2008 Best Open Source Software Winner

IDG's InfoWorld Bossie Awards Recognize Top Open Source Software for Enterprises

OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwire - August 8, 2008) - Jitterbit, the leading provider of open source integration software, has been recognized as a winner of InfoWorld's Best of Open Source Software Awards in the "Best of Open Source Middleware and Platforms: Data Migration" category. Known as the "Bossies," the annual awards recognize the best free and open source software the world has to offer to businesses, IT professionals and productive individuals who rely on computers to get work done.

Selected by InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers, the 2008 Bossies celebrate software products and companies that demonstrate innovation, functionality, ease-of-use, implementation and a proven track record in serving the needs of today's businesses.

"The breadth and quality of open source software continues to amaze us," notes Doug Dineley, executive editor of the InfoWorld Test Center. "We've singled out 60 products for Bossies -- developer tools, middleware, firewalls and routers, productivity apps, CRM and ERP, etc. -- and we're only scratching the surface. When you look at all that's available, and how good it is, you start to think that someday all software will be free."

The 2008 Bossie winners include 60 products in eight categories covering business and productivity applications, development tools, middleware, networking, security and storage. The full award results are available at www.infoworld.com/5268.

With Jitterbit, users and developers quickly and affordably connect customer data among a variety of sources and formats, such as local and hosted ERP and CRM applications, legacy systems, data warehouses and online marketplace.

Jitterbit has been adopted by more than 3,000 organizations, with customers representing some of the world's largest companies and government agencies, including NASA, Continental Airlines and Capgemini.

"It is a great honor to have Jitterbit named a Bossie winner," said Sharam Sasson, Jitterbit chairman and CEO. "To be held in such high esteem by our industry is a real privilege -- the recognition validates the value and quality of our open source technology, which goes well beyond traditional solutions to bring unprecedented flexibility and scalability to integration processes."
