Data integration, automation and API-development company Jitterbit has acquired Zudy, a no-code/low-code (NC/LC) application development platform provider.
Zudy’s platform, Vinyl, is used by a variety of commercial and government enterprises.
The technology is lauded for its ability to develop integrated ‘bi-directional’ applications for on-premises deployment without a single line of code.
Jitterbit doesn’t define what it means by bi-directional applications, but we can assume the company is referring to applications that support human languages that read right to left as well as left to right.
This acquisition expands on Jitterbit’s existing capabilities in the no-code / low-code application development space, further demonstrating the company’s commitment to providing a best-in-class suite of tools and services for integrating and automating business processes. The newly acquired platform complements Jitterbit’s existing solutions with additional choice and flexibility, making Jitterbit’s full suite of tools and services available via cloud deployment, on-prem installation or a hybrid approach.
“In addition to the added scale and enhanced ARR profile, this acquisition further differentiates Jitterbit’s capabilities, while enhancing our ability to meet the application development and automation needs of businesses across industries with offerings to serve both on-prem and cloud environments,” said George Gallegos, CEO of Jitterbit.
According to magical analyst house Gartner, the worldwide market for low-code development technologies is expected to reach £22.4 billion in 2023, up 19.6% from 2022.
To date, Zudy serves 150 enterprise customers across more than 50 major industries, focused on global enterprises and mid-size growth businesses, and has been used to develop more than 3,500 apps.
“We created Vinyl to reduce the technology barriers required to build customized business solutions that integrate into and across the enterprise of our customers,” said Tom Kennedy, founder and CTO of Zudy. “Joining Jitterbit is the next phase of expanding our integration capabilities to empower companies across the globe to build and deploy the solutions they need in weeks, rather than months and years.”
