Simon Peel, Chief Strategy Officer, and CMO at Jitterbit, explains how they support both technical and non-technical personas so that a larger number of people can take part in integration. Harmony, Jitterbit’s API integration platform, plays a central role in streamlining the integration process. Fundamentally, the platform empowers Developers, “ad-hoc” integrators and also Citizen Integrators—a term used by Peel for non-technical employees. Citizen Integrators work on the simpler use cases, while technical users focus on the more challenging tasks. With hundreds of certified API and integration templates that a client can pick off the shelf, Jitterbit enables teams to rapidly integrate data both in the cloud and on-premise. Peel highlights that they provide companies with a single platform that brings connectivity and automation of business processes to the masses, while still enabling technical users to achieve more complex tasks faster than they otherwise could. “Digital transformations will only be successful if people from across the business come together to achieve a common goal.”
To ensure the success of a customer’s engagement, Peel’s team works with the client to understand their existing scenario and identify desired positive business outcomes that are then mapped to the required capabilities of the product. In the next stage, which involves onboarding the client and executing the project, the company uses the requirements drawn in the first stage for defining the process and measuring progress. Every customer is assigned a customer success manager who works closely with the client throughout the project lifecycle.
We see a world, in the not-too-distant future, where artificial intelligence will be used to automatically integrate entire systems. This will take our value proposition to the next level
Jitterbit differentiates itself from a plethora of integration providers by offering a single platform that can provide different interfaces matched to the user and their technical knowledge. Another factor that sets Jitterbit a class apart is its fervor for providing unparalleled customer service. These core competencies have won Jitterbit multiple awards, and more importantly a 100 percent recommendation from its clients.
Exemplifying the Jitterbit offering is their engagement with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) whose searchable real-world cancer data is collected and stored by ASCO CancerLinQ. The data is drawn from various sources, such as electronic medical records and laboratory systems, and used to enable quality and personalized cancer care for every patient. ASCO faced the challenge of having the data anonymized and transmitted securely. Jitterbit solved this problem for ASCO by allowing them to transfer millions of patient records per day with over a billion oncology records processed to date. It is estimated that with comprehensive information on just three percent of patients, 100 percent of cancer patients can be provided with the necessary assistance for better health outcomes.
With a keen eye on the future, Peel indicates that Jitterbit will continue to lead and accelerate the pace of development. “We see a world, in the not-too-distant future, where artificial intelligence will be used to automatically integrate entire systems. This will take our value proposition to the next level,” concludes Peel.
Samsung Ventures Invests in Jitterbit
ALAMEDA, Calif.: Jitterbit, the API transformation company, announced that Samsung Ventures has invested in Jitterbit. Jitterbit plans to use the investment to increase its international presence, accelerating sales and marketing in the region. As part of the deal, Samsung SDS will leverage Jitterbit to accelerate the speed of integration for its customers and will resell Jitterbit solutions to help customers in South Korea to do the same.
The number of new cloud apps has exploded 30-fold over the past couple of years, there are hundreds of thousands of SaaS apps on the market today, and countless legacy products. Connecting these systems and automating business processes end-to-end has become increasingly important as enterprise data becomes scattered across an ever-growing number of internal and external systems. Samsung invested in Jitterbit for its ability to empower teams of varying technical abilities to quickly compose innovative solutions through integration and APIs to dramatically reduce the time and cost of connecting applications. Connecting multiple systems, such as enterprise resource management (ERP) or supply chain management systems, can take a skilled developer weeks to complete. With Jitterbit, a non-skilled developer can finish the work within days.
According to Sean Im, SVP at Samsung SDS, "By strengthening cooperation with leading tech companies such as Jitterbit in Korea and abroad, Samsung SDS strives to provide the best solutions to our customers.”
“Samsung is one of the most recognized brands in the world and we’re pleased to collaborate with the company as a strategic investor and partner,” said George Gallegos, CEO of Jitterbit. “As the number of applications continues to increase at a dizzying pace, our integration and API platform will be instrumental to help Samsung SDS provide services that drive business and improve competitive positions in a hyper-connected economy.”
