Samsung SDS has invested in US API integration platform provider Jitterbit, the company has announced.

The investment was made through Samsung Venture Investment, with neither companies disclosing the amount paid.

Jitterbit offers solutions that allow customers to connect their Software-as-a-Servce(SaaS), cloud, and on-premise applications. It also allows them to create new APIs from existing enterprise applications and combine them with external APIs.

The demand to connect SaaS, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), and other legacy systems are increasing as well, according to Samsung SDS, with the company saying Jitterbit's solution will allow the integration to be done in a cheaper and more timely manner.
