ALAMEDA, Calif., June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jitterbit, the API transformation company, today announced the launch of a comprehensive new partner program that will accelerate the company’s shift towards a partner-first business model in the face of surging global demand. The new PoweredBy Jitterbit partner program offers industry-leading incentives and go-to-market resources to empower all types of partners – from SaaS and platform providers to system integrators and resellers – to deliver enterprise integration at a rate and pace so far unparalleled in the industry.

To keep up with the massive growth in the API and integration market and continue to deliver the highest levels for customer satisfaction in the industry, Jitterbit is leveraging a partner-focused strategy that will redefine integration and API experiences on a global scale. CIOs and leading cloud platform vendors require a leading enterprise integration platform-as-a-service (EiPaaS) and an ecosystem of API, industry, application, and process transformation experts to deliver digital transformation. PoweredBy Jitterbit will form the foundation of this innovation-focused ecosystem of partners dedicated to transforming the way modern businesses achieve next-generation connected experiences.

“Digital transformation means delivering connected customer, partner, and employee experiences that transcend applications, platforms, and data silos, and the best companies will move ahead of the competition based on how intelligently they deliver, connect, and compose the data, APIs, and services available to them,” said Andrew Leigh, Jitterbit’s vice president of alliances. “PoweredBy Jitterbit enables partners to build multi-million-dollar businesses leveraging our platform, and it marks a milestone in our march towards a partner-first approach.”

Surging Integration and API Market Paves the Way for Jitterbit Partner GrowthThe 300 percent explosion in SaaS and API services over the last 24 months has made enterprise iPaaS the fastest growing segment of the technology industry, reaching an astounding 70 percent compound annual growth rate, with plenty of room for growth given only six percent market penetration so far. Meanwhile, the recent acquisitions of leading iPaaS and API Management providers by Salesforce, Google, and CA Technologies has demonstrated the strategic importance of integration and APIs to modern cloud-based platforms – which now require API solutions to match customer demand for comprehensive connectivity for cloud and hybrid environments. Without the resources or expertise to deliver this level of enterprise integration themselves, Cloud ISVs and platform providers are turning to proven industry leaders.

Jitterbit currently has over 250 global partners with strategic partnerships with nearly every major cloud or on-premises platform in the industry – including Salesforce, NetSuite, ServiceNow, Epicor, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle and Workday – and works closely with hundreds of system integrators that are leading the digital transformation movement:

-- Jitterbit has doubled the number of strategic system integrator partnerships in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions over the last year with new offices and partnerships in Germany, Switzerland, and the Nordics. Revenue from these programs has increased by over 140 percent in the last 24 months. -- Strategic OEM partnerships based on the market-leading Jitterbit Citizen Experience and OEM model have tripled over the last three years, representing the fastest growing portion of Jitterbit’s channel program.

Last month, Jitterbit announced a new partnership with Epicor, expanding its impact in manufacturing and adding to a long list of vertical-specific solution provider partnerships that includes higher education, finance, healthcare and technology.

“Jitterbit's enterprise iPaaS solution provides us what we need to navigate the complexities of API integration,” said Thierry Bonfante, vice president, global product management - cloud, at Epicor. “We look forward to our continued success with Jitterbit, leveraging the PoweredBy Jitterbit partner program to driving more value to our customers and helping them get fit for business growth.”

New Program Delivers Industry-Leading Value to Partners and CustomersUnlike programs developed by traditional integration platform providers, the PoweredBy Jitterbit partner program is laser-focused on partner value by providing the highest levels of partner margins, go-to-market accelerators and high touch support in the industry, along with the most comprehensive one-on-one partner training, certification, and support. Through this program, Jitterbit will directly help partners create specific strategies to solve digital transformation, API, and integration problems within multiple verticals and deliver the greatest value to customers.

PoweredBy Jitterbit includes the following features to deliver business success and innovation to partners and their customers:

-- ​New joint strategic business and marketing plans for every premier partner -- Access to a comprehensive onboarding process, enablement tools, go-to-market accelerators, and financial incentives to create new and profitable revenue streams -- Flexible new programs to satisfy the needs of all types of partners including referral, reseller, MSP, and OEM -- A foundation for partners to create their own intellectual property for pre-built solutions including new practices for infusing artificial intelligence (AI) directly into business processes

“It's clear the PoweredBy Jitterbit program was designed to help us to grow our business and provide better experiences for our customers thanks to the go-to-market accelerators and partner portal, which gives us access to valued content and enables easy engagement with Jitterbit and the community,” said Juan Luis Betancourt, CEO at Humantelligence, the AI-driven recruiting and culture analytics platform.
