Jitterbit is pushing integrations to the people. The company will push its Jitterbit Harmony Winter ‘17 update to customers tomorrow morning in the hopes of spreading its integrations platform to the unwashed, non-developer masses.
The Winter ‘17 is aimed at creating “Citizen Integrators” by implementing a point-and-click path to developing integrations between internal and external systems. Initially, this takes the form of 50 preconfigured recipes from Jitterbit designed to bring together popular web services inside enterprises.
The integrations include syncing Salesforce.com with NetSuite, or bringing together data from external services and internal databases. The update includes support for cross-connecting services and products like SAP, SteelBrick, Workday and Zendesk.

Andrew Leigh, vice president of marketing and alliances at Jitterbit, said the company plans to release more than 500 recipes over the course of 2017. Those will be supplemented by others created and shared by customers in an open repository.
“It’s more than just API adapters; these recipes represent best practice processes,” said Leigh. “We’re including not just the connections, but the orchestrated processes. It’s the entire end to end orchestrated process.”
Jitterbit Harmony Winter ‘17 goes live in the web management console of all Harmony customers Thursday morning.
