  • "We are pleased to work with the Salesforce 1 Platform team to connect the new era of digital business," said Andrew Leigh, VP Alliances and Marketing, Jitterbit. "Lightning Connect represents a new generation of digital connectivity that enables companies to deliver more engaging and meaningful experiences to their customers."
  • "Salesforce1 Lightning Connect is a new breed of real-time integration that turns any external data source into a first class citizen on the Salesforce1 Platform," said Scott Holden, VP, Salesforce1 Platform, Salesforce.

Product Key Features
Jitterbit Harmony is a modern, cloud integration platform designed to quickly connect on-premise, cloud, mobile and API endpoints into end-to-end digital processes that span multiple departments, apps, customers and partners. Lightning Connect works with Jitterbit's Harmony cloud integration platform to instantly access any type of SAP data, such as orders, invoices or credit history, without physically synchronizing the data. This allows companies to immediately access data from mission-critical operational systems from any app built and running on the Salesforce1 Platform to enable more compelling user experiences across any app or device.

Salesforce1 Lightning Ignites a New Era of Innovation in Platform as a Service
Building on the tremendous success of last year's launch of the Salesforce1 Platform, Salesforce1 Lightning defines a new era of Platform as a Service (PaaS). With Lightning, Salesforce is delivering a new user interface for every Salesforce app, optimized for any device. And developers and business users can now quickly build apps with a custom user interface for every screen shape and size. Today Salesforce is launching the new Lightning Connect, a new breed of real-time integration that will change the way companies access and connect with data stored in legacy systems. Unlike other integration tools, Lightning Connect can be configured in minutes with point-and-click tools and does not copy and store outdated data in Salesforce.
