Jitterbit: In Harmony with Enterprise?

If application program interfaces (APIs) leave you feeling tone deaf, Jitterbit’s newly released Harmony Live could bring a song to your lips. 

Officials boast the platform, built on Harmony Cloud’s “Sonic Architecture,” allows users to create "seamless digital experiences" and share their products and services through orchestrated APIs that connect to thousands of B2B, consumer and mobile apps, as well as smart devices and the Internet of Things.

All of that, they claim, can be done through the Jitterbit Studio without the need for writing code. And that may be music to the ears a lot of non-tech types.

According to representatives of the Alameda, Calif.-based Jitterbit, Harmony Live includes options to design, orchestrate and manage their APIs. Users connect to hundreds of apps, data and devices and create custom APIs; visually map business processes; and deploy “Anywhere” APIs to the API Gateway, which "ensures guaranteed access and elastic scale no matter where your API is running."
