distributed in open source. The offering addresses a growing market's demand
for simplicity and cost cutting measures in business integration projects.
When it comes to integration, customers have had limited options,
currently relying on expensive, complex and proprietary solutions that require
specialized technical staffing. With today's announcement, Jitterbit provides
a solution that reduces the level of effort and skill required to achieve
integration, combined with the benefits of an open source community to expand

management tools with enterprise support and services for a fee.

alike to download and use at no cost and with no coding required to solve many
integration challenges," said Sharam Sasson, president and CEO of Jitterbit.
