Jitterbit, Inc., the pioneer of open source integration productivity software and Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM), the market and technology leader in on-demand business services, today announced that Jitterbit's open source integration suite is now certified and available through Salesforce.com's AppExchange and can directly integrate with Salesforce.com implementations.
With Jitterbit, users and developers can quickly and affordably connect and transform customer data into Salesforce.com from a variety of data sources and formats. An open source integration solution, Jitterbit addresses the problems of cost and complexity associated with connecting applications, data and partners. Jitterbit is immediately available for free download and deployment at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange.
"Jitterbit is a strategic integration partner for Salesforce.com, and their certification on the AppExchange means Salesforce.com customers can now rapidly and affordably integrate their CRM data into their IT environments," said Shay Casey, a manager of Salesforce.com's Appexchange Certification Program. "We're excited to continue our relationship with Jitterbit as they help our customers take full advantage of the benefits of an on-demand enterprise."
When it comes to integration, Salesforce customers have had limited options, relying on expensive, complex and proprietary solutions that require specialized technical staffing. Jitterbit allows users to integrate their data "out of the box" without any coding expertise. Jitterbit also provides pre-packaged integrations for Salesforce.com, called "Jitterpaks" that include all the basic configurations for getting customer data integrated with Salesforce.com. Jitterpaks dramatically reduce complexity, cost and implementation time and are available for free download from the Jitterbit website.
