Seeing Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Integration at SuiteWorld




As reviewed in Jorge Garcia’s recent blog post, Jitterbit recently announced general availability of its Harmony Integration Cloud Platform. The gist of the matter of the latest release is that it is now entirely in a public cloud (as an Amazon AWS instance) versus being in disparate private cloud platforms as it was previously. About 5,000 salesforce.com’s customer relationship management (CRM) users have had the Data Loader product in beta release for almost a year, but the full enterprise edition is now available to the general public.
 
Jitterbit Harmony continues on its course of offering non-technical users and business analysts the ability to design data and process integrations in a visual manner rather than via pesky coding, i.e., taking a “clicks not code” approach. Some notable features include the use of Jitterbit Automapper to intelligently map fields, the visual studio designer for processes, and the ability to add business logic with the built-in formula library (see illustration). See Jitterbit’s video for more details.

 

In addition to a plethora of legacy on-premises enterprise applications and devices, companies must increasingly deal with a spate of new applications leveraging cloud, mobile, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Many experts predict that by 2020 more than 50 billion smart devices will be connected, creating ever more efficient business processes.
 
Jitterbit’s closest competitors include Adeptia, Appirio, IBM Cast Iron, Informatica, SnapLogic, Tibco, Accenture, Cloud Sherpas, Dell Boomi, and BlueWolf. Many of these were also present at the recent SuiteWorld 2014 conference.
 
Jitterbit has been instrumental in devising integration between the Autodesk Cloud PLM 360 product with NetSuite’s cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP). Jitterbit and its peers have been involved in integrating NetSuite to many other needed third-party products. Given that mere integration will likely be commoditized sooner rather than later, some of these integration vendors also provide consulting services and industry expertise.
