FYI, this story is more than a year old

Jitterbit has launched a new marketplace this week, enabling partners and customers to leverage Jitterbit-certified solutions designed to assist API integration solutions.

The Jitterbit Marketplace features more than 200 solution assets from more than 20 Jitterbit-certified service providers, with the marketplace expected to grow in the coming months.

Vendors can provide customers with a range of integration solutions such as application connectors, integration recipes, process templates, and related delivery services.

According to the company, businesses often face the challenges of being unable to find the right expertise for efficient application solutions, whilst also following best practice. Jitterbit launched its marketplace to help solve this issue.

Jitterbit Marketplace features partner development ‘factories' that can build solutions from between four to 16 weeks.

One strategic partner is Credex Technology, which offers connector solution development and a certification factory for Jitterbit Harmony API integration platform.

Jitterbit senior vice president of partner development, channels and alliances, Ron Wastal, says that Credex is a trusted advisor because the company has developed on Jitterbit's platform ‘for years'.

"API integrations are historically done by vendors or solution consultants that code them as one-offs, but the new Jitterbit Marketplace changes that.  We want our ecosystem to build on top of our platform and create repeatable integrations that benefit end users."

The Jitterbit partner marketplace also includes:

  • A selection of pre-built integrations, including a  vertically tailored set of application connectors, process templates, and integration recipes to unlock the promise of API360-degree business capabilities.
  • Fully certified solutions: Solutions on the Jitterbit partner marketplace are guaranteed to work well over time because they are certified and not open sourced, removing the risk of uncertainty.
  • Multiple ways to build and verify solutions: Vendors can either leverage partner developers such as Credex Technology for seamless development and certification or build solutions on their own for Jitterbit certification.
  • Expertise: The new Jitterbit Marketplace will also connect customers with Jitterbit-certified integration experts to implement solutions in ways that provide the most business value.

BMC senior vice president and general manager of digital services and operations management, Margaret Lee, says, "With the new AI-driven IT operations and service capabilities in the BMC Helix solution, IT service and operations teams can better prioritise, predict and act on issues through embedded AI, analytics, and automation.

"An open platform that integrates easily with the tools and environment of our customers is a key component of BMC's strategy. The partnership with Jitterbit provides our BMC Helix customers with industry-leading enterprise iPaaS integrations that allow them to easily customise processes with powerful AI-driven capabilities. Customers can take full advantage of these innovations as they continue their evolution towards being an autonomous digital enterprise."
