Jitterbit Marks the One-Year Anniversary of IBM’s Acquisition of Cast Iron by Extending Its Successful Swap Out Program

As IBM Cast Iron Customers Face Rising Costs Jitterbit Offers Reliability, Better Support and Guaranteed ROI

OAKLAND, Calif. – June 21, 2011 – Jitterbit, the leading provider of powerful, flexible and easy-to-use application and data integration solutions, today announced the extension of its successful “Cast Out The Iron” swap-out incentive program to help existing IBM Cast Iron customers avoid the big blues by seamlessly upgrading to Jitterbit.

As companies transition from an on-premise to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, reliable integration is the key to recognizing value from these investments. The “Cast Out The Iron” swap-out program for Cast Iron customers provides a worry-free migration path to Jitterbit 4.0. In addition, Jitterbit is offering “Guaranteed TCO Reduction” for Cast Iron customers making the switch. Previous swap-out customers have reported up to an 80 percent savings and more than 300 percent return on investment after moving from Cast Iron to Jitterbit. Enrollees in the program will also benefit from Jitterbit’s straightforward annual subscriptions, superior reliability, and responsive, hands-on customer support. To take advantage of this program, current Cast Iron customers can register at http://www.jitterbit.com/castout.

“IBM’s acquisition of Cast Iron has left a void for cost-effective integration solutions in the mid-market. As their contracts come up for renewal many Cast Iron customers are feeling the sting of increased prices,” said George Gallegos, CEO of Jitterbit. “Organizations that have already upgraded to Jitterbit have reported significantly lower TCO, better product reliability and outstanding customer support. We welcome every Cast Iron user to try our 30-day trial and discover why so many customers have made the switch.”

“With Jitterbit, we can offer our clients a more mature and dependable integration platform than IBM Cast Iron,” said Kurt Neubauer, CEO of JAUST Consulting Partners, “Jitterbit also provides more responsive support and maintenance at a lower total cost of ownership. We are excited to offer Cast Iron clients the opportunity to make the switch.”

The latest release of Jitterbit 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. Its unique “no-coding” approach allows business analysts to graphically configure and manage integration projects.
