Jitterbit: Turning Rapid Integration into a Competitive Advantage

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

For most enterprise leaders, there was a predictable cadence to the acquisition, accumulation and eventual rationalization of an application stack. When you had a large number of applications in the stack, you knew that it was time for some consolidation. That was because having all those different applications added complexity, but no value.

This belief that having fewer applications is a virtue, however, is no longer true. Today, organizations are creating competitive advantage by bringing together a diverse set of applications and compositing them into their own unique operating platforms. But that is often easier said than done.

Jitterbit realized that organizations needed a simple and fast way to make these connections and create this type of advantage-delivering platform — whether their applications reside on-premises or in the cloud. With its cloud-based integration platform, the company helps enterprise organizations make these connections.

Merely making a connection between two applications, however, is only table stakes. The company’s platform also helps enterprises modernize legacy environments by automatically building APIs and enabling their management and reuse.

Moreover, the platform’s low-code configuration approach and use of integration templates enable organizations to democratize the integration of applications, deploy them rapidly and easily adapt them to changing business requirements. In this way, the company believes, it helps enterprise organizations unleash the transformative power of integrations and APIs.
