 Jitterbit Open Edition, a business integration product built on and
 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
 and improve the offering on an ongoing basis. While Jitterbit Open Edition's
 tools can be downloaded and used at no cost by business analysts and
 application developers alike, Jitterbit will also provide value added
 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.
