Back in December 2007, I posted on the Jitterbit Trading Post in the context of the wider movement in open source software (OSS) to make OSS more available and more interoperable. That post back in December was based on a discussion with Sharam Sasson who is Chairman and CEO of Jitterbit. The Jitterbit Trading Post was intended to be the central hub for complete integration solutions built with the Jitterbit open source Integration Suite.

In this podcast, we're going to ask how that process is going. Jitterbit has released Version 2 of its flagship product. And that added some new business process design features as well. Jitterbit has also told me offline that it is seeing some relationship between Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and open source integration and we're going to try to explore that as well.

To do that, we're talking with Ilan Sehayek who is Jitterbit's chief technology officer. Ilan has held various engineering marketing and executive roles in the IT industry in the past 18 years. Prior to leading Jitterbit's engineering team, he served as director of market development at Amazon.com where he created the platform for retailers to run their direct to consumer operations. Before that, he was a founder and VP of product strategy and engineering at CommerceRoute where he pioneered, developed, and marketed integrated app appliances to the enterprise and B-to-B market. So we've got both sides of the experience there in terms of SaaS, and open source--plus exchanges--and that puts us in a pretty good position for some interesting information.
