OAKLAND, Calif. – April 5, 2011 – Jitterbit, a leading provider of powerful, flexible and easy-to-use application and data integration solutions, today announced the availability of Jitterbit 4.0, the company’s award-winning software for on-premise and cloud integration. Jitterbit 4.0 was designed to facilitate IT and Business collaboration, simplify cloud integration and accommodate big data requirements.

Connecting cloud, SaaS and other internal applications is a business and IT priority. Jitterbit offers a simplified approach to integration for IT and business analysts, offering easy, out-of-the-box integration to hundreds of enterprise applications and an intuitive drag-and-drop design. Its unique “no-coding” approach allows users to graphically configure and manage their cloud integration and on-premise application and data integration projects.

“Our research shows that when dealing with analytics, two thirds of organizations’ time is spent collecting, preparing and integrating data,” commented David Menninger, VP and research director, Ventana Research. “With organizations surveyed integrating over five different data sources, the value of a good integration tool is an important part of managing information to drive better business performance.”

Hybrid cloud and on-premise infrastructures are driving the rapid growth of globalized business data, creating increased demand for flexible technologies that can keep up. Jitterbit 4.0 adds features to boost productivity and collaboration between business analysts and IT during complex integration projects, multi-lingual support for global teams and information, and high-performance processing to accommodate the growth in big data.

Jitterbit 4.0 new features and functionality provide:

Business and IT Collaboration – a completely revamped user interface with new features that enhance integration productivity and enable collaboration between business analysts and IT to define and complete complex integration projects. New features include automated data mapping tools, “no coding” transformation and formula wizards, and “business analyst” and “developer” modes.

Simplified Cloud Integration – Easy to use Jitterbit ConnectTM wizards allow non-technical users to quickly configure integrations between their cloud and on-premise applications using Web services, XML, databases and flat files. The Jitterbit Connect for Salesforce wizard has been updated to support Create, Update, Upsert and Query calls.

Support for Global & Big Data – Jitterbit features new levels of performance power to scale for complex, high volume integration while simplifying testing of large data sets. Unicode support allows Jitterbit to connect any data from any language or country. Global search and replace allows for one-click edits across large integration projects.
