Jitterbit Integrates with Oracle CRM On Demand

Jitterbit has introduced advanced features to enhance the compatibility of its open source integration software with Oracle CRM On Demand Release 16.

“We are seeing a push in the Oracle CRM On Demand environment, and seeing a lot of users in our open source community come to us with requirements to integrate with that application,” Ilan Sehayek, Jitterbit CTO, tells 5 Minute Briefing. “To date we have focused more on but because we are seeing a growing trend, we made sure that our product will meet the needs of that community.”

In making the product suitable for integrating Oracle CRM On Demand with other applications that organizations have in house whether they are Oracle E-Business Suite or anything else, Sehayek says, “we have added certain things in the technology that just makes it a really straightforward, out of the box experience to integrate the Oracle CRM On Demand with other applications.”

To natively support Oracle’s On Demand security model, Jitterbit 2.0 Enterprise now includes support for the Oracle-specific JSessionID authentication method. Additionally, the data chunking features included in Jitterbit’s latest release allow users to overcome bandwidth limitations built into On Demand’s Web services calls. This feature allows users to move larger data sets—such as Oracle’s unlimited objects—in a shorter amount of time and without any programming logic.

Sehayek explains that at many organizations the Oracle CRM On Demand user and the person that also manages the environment for all the users is typically not a developer and does not need to be. However he says, if you then want to integrate the Oracle CRM On Demand with Oracle Financials, “then you do need to be a developer—so what Jitterbit does is preserve the value that the CRM On Demand proposition gives you, which is that you can have a certain degree of independence from IT and you don’t have to rely on them. You can use the resources that are managing and configuring your Oracle CRM On Demand to also perform the integration.”
