Kapow Technologies and Plumtree Software Partner To Deliver Rich Portal Applications


The New Partnership Leverages Web Integration For Accelerated Portlet Creation and Publishing In The Portal Framework

Campbell, CALIF. - May 18, 2005 – Today at the EMEA Plumtree Odyssey Conference in Wokingham, U.K, Kapow Technologies announced a technology partnership with Plumtree Software (Nasdaq: PLUM) that will help enable customers to expedite the population of the Plumtree Enterprise Web Suite through a code free "point-and-clip" portlet creation solution and automated migration of legacy content.

Kapow Technologies and Plumtree will collaborate to use the Kapow RoboSuite Web Integration platform to simplify portlet creation and publishing of legacy applications into the Plumtree Corporate Portal. It will also migrate, integrate and synchronize legacy content with the Plumtree Content Server.

"Portal frameworks have evolved from a 'single point' application access portal to a platform for deploying advanced applications. This new generation of portals combine content and collaboration with application functionality," said Tony Sanders, vice president of worldwide channel operations at Plumtree Software. "As a result, the partnership with Kapow Technologies is intended to provide Plumtree Software the ability to access and reuse legacy applications and content, and integrate them into portal environment, resulting in accelerated deployment and faster return on investment for our customers."

Kapow RoboSuite is a Web integration platform that uniquely uses the Web front-end interface as the integration point. This means integration of any application or information that is accessible from a standard Web browser. The RoboSuite platform uses visual modelling to define "integration robots" that are automatically executed in a server environment for clipping Web applications and turning them into portlets; easily integrating application logic and data for composite portal applications; migration, integration and synchronization of content into the portal content server; and Web services enablement of legacy applications for easy access to application logic.

"The trend towards integrated portal and content management solutions is driving the demand for new Web integration platforms. Kapow customers are experiencing dramatic savings in cost and time for the development of portals containing both applications and content," said Stefan Andreasen at Kapow Technologies. "With the new partnership, we are exited to have the ability to help deliver such an increase in productivity and efficiency to Plumtree customers. "

Deployed at major clients within the financial, transportation and public sectors, RoboSuite is a complete Web integration platform delivering clients faster time to value through automating application and information integration through the widely available Web user interface.
