Jitterbit 3.0 Solves Complex Integrations for the Enterprise Market

As Enterprise Adoption Grows, Latest Release Manages Large-Scale Integrations With Enhanced Management Tools and Rapid ROI

OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - Jitterbit, the leading provider of open source integration software, today announced Jitterbit 3.0, the next major release of the award-winning solution for data and application integration. Designed to address large-scale enterprise integrations, the new version adds support for high volume transactions, expanded connectivity options and new enterprise management tools and features for multi-user environments. Already in production at select customer beta sites, Jitterbit 3.0 represents the most intuitive and comprehensive integration solution available on the market today.

Jitterbit has been adopted by more than 5,000 organizations with customers representing some of the world's largest companies and government agencies including NASA, Continental Airlines and Balfour Beatty. Offering easy, out-of-the-box integration to hundreds of enterprise applications and an intuitive drag-and-drop design, Jitterbit significantly speeds integration projects and reduces operational costs for Fortune 2000 customers.

"Standardizing our integration projects on Jitterbit was an easy choice," said Kevin Clinton, CIO for Steel Warehouse, an integrated steel service center in business since 1947. "Jitterbit's drag-and-drop data mapping lets us visually represent the results we were after, and we had our first interface completed in less than an hour. Using Jitterbit, we have significantly reduced administrative costs and time, and continue to discover a seemingly endless depth of sophistication. At Steel Warehouse, we were first in line to get our hands on 3.0 and its new management capabilities."

Jitterbit's open source solution addresses the cost and complexity typically associated with integration, reducing project delivery time by up to 80 percent over alternative options. Its unique "no-coding" approach allows business analysts to graphically configure and manage their cloud computing integration and on-premise application and data integration projects.

"Jitterbit has proven that open source integration is the best option for enterprises looking to quickly and easily solve complex integration requirements," stated Sharam Sasson, Jitterbit founder and CEO. "Jitterbit 3.0 takes enterprise integration to the next level, delivering rapid ROI for real-time integrations of any scale. Today, Jitterbit is the clear replacement for hand-coded integration and is a proven alternative to more expensive, proprietary integration vendors."

Jitterbit 3.0 introduces features to significantly enhance productivity and simplify management, and includes performance upgrades and expanded enterprise connectivity. More intuitive and flexible than ever, the new version can be used to solve nearly any integration requirement in today's more complex and distributed business infrastructure.

Team/user management -- Jitterbit 3.0 includes new features for multi-user environments, allowing multiple users to download and work on a project simultaneously.
