Jitterbit Unveils Harmony Live! API Platform to Empower Businesses to Join the 'Now Economy'

Now Anyone Can Quickly Design, Orchestrate and Manage Real-Time APIs on Jitterbit's Single Cloud Integration Platform

ALAMEDA, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 15, 2015) - Jitterbit, the leading provider of fast, agile integration solutions for the modern enterprise, today announced the release of Harmony Live!, the only unified cloud platform for companies to quickly design, orchestrate and manage real-time APIs. Built on the Harmony Cloud's "Sonic Architecture," Live! delivers market-leading speed, performance and reliability along with enterprise-level security to empower every business to build and orchestrate APIs to join the "Now Economy."

Companies across every industry recognize the need to provide their employees, partners and customers with instant, real-time access to their digital assets from anywhere and on any device. Harmony Live! enables these companies to create seamless digital experiences and share their products and services through orchestrated APIs that connect to thousands of B2B, consumer and mobile apps, as well as smart devices and the Internet of Things.

"Digital disruption is shaking up traditional business models, with more than 50 percent of the Fortune 500 going out of business since 2000," said R "Ray" Wang, principal analyst, founder and chairman of Constellation Research. "Customers seek to do more than manage their APIs. Users want to design and orchestrate APIs, which connect business processes that drive new models and revenue opportunities."

The API Platform for the Rest of Us
Unlike legacy integration solutions and API management tools, Harmony Live! empowers non-technical users to connect any on-premise system, cloud app or device and expose it instantly as an orchestrated API in minutes. Using the Jitterbit Studio, users can connect, orchestrate and manage their APIs without writing a single line of code.

Today's APIs require more than just management: APIs need to be orchestrated. Unlike API management, API orchestration means that APIs are connected to the business, tied to real-time digital processes and shared securely for plug-and-play connectivity with any system. The results are orchestrated APIs that expose business processes and govern digital interactions between the apps, data and devices used by businesses and their customers.

"Anywhere" APIs Offer Unmatched Power and Flexibility
Live! offers the only end-to-end API solution that runs on a single multi-tenant cloud platform and allows APIs to be connected to anything and deployed anywhere. Live! "Anywhere" APIs can run in any environment while connected to the Harmony API Gateway, which exposes APIs securely, reliably and with sub-second response times. 

Live! "Anywhere" APIs can also be instantly linked to popular apps through pre-built connectors, including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, Salesforce, Autodesk and NetSuite. These systems can then be securely exposed as a service connected to a specific business process that ties together employees, partners and customers. If a data source, app or device doesn't have an API, Live! can provide it an "Anywhere" API, and even combine multiple sources into a composite API to offer services that tie together users, systems and processes.

For example, Club Auto, Canada's leading roadside assistance service, handles 70 percent of roadside events in the country. In order to provide real-time support for drivers, Club Auto needed to bridge the gap between the roadside assistance subscribers of its OEM clients, such as Volkswagon, Toyota and Ford, with the suppliers of roadside services throughout Canada. Using Harmony Live!, Club Auto has created real-time connectivity to support 275,000 dispatches, 550,000 service calls and over 1.5 million cars across Canada.

Harmony Live! runs on a unified cloud platform and includes everything businesses need to design, orchestrate and manage their APIs:
