Kapow Technologies Announces General Availability of Its Web Integration Platform Version 6.0


Latest release sets a new standard for ease of enterprise-level portlet creation and content population in portals, as well as support for new Web 2.0 technologies

Palo Alto - Feb 13, 2006 – Kapow Technologies today announced the general availability of version 6.0 of its Web Integration platform. The new release uniquely offers enterprise-level web application integration through new advanced clipping capabilities, as well as Web 2.0-type integration leveraging web services, XML, SOAP, REST and other standards.

Over the past few years, the Kapow Web Integration Platform has become a new integration standard among Internet-intensive businesses in the areas of media, financial services, travel and manufacturing, because of its unique ability to integrate any resource accessible via the web. Put simply, if the applications and content to be integrated are available on the web, Kapow Technologies is the go-to-vendor. Version 6.0 makes Web Integration even easier, with the following functionality to create a rich-Internet or portal-based solution:

  • Enterprise-class visual clipping platform — the ability to visually define and generate portlets in as little as a few minutes
  • Component Clipping — the ability to clip different independent and interconnected sections of any given web application and automatically generate a portlet
  • Full-Site Clipping — the ability to continuously clip full web sites including support for frames, pop-up screens and JavaScript, and quickly define HTML elements that should appear in -- or disappear from -- the clip
  • Integration capabilities using new "Web 2.0" technologies such as consuming and producing web services and integration using SOAP, XML and REST
These capabilities compliment the ability to continuously migrate any content into a content management repository, delivering both an application and an information-rich Internet solution.

"We are pleased to ship version 6.0 of the Kapow Web Integration Platform, which is the industry's only full-featured Web Integration solution that is proven to meet the most demanding enterprise real-time requirements," said Glenn Hasen, CEO of Kapow Technologies. "The Kapow platform now offers advanced web clipping capabilities, combined with new web-integration standards support, which provides limitless integration project possibilities for our customers. Whether companies want to create mashups, combine leading enterprise applications into new web resources, or collect, remix and publish Internet content in specific ways, we are certain that Kapow Technologies offers the most efficient and cost-effective choice in the industry today."

The Kapow Web Integration Platform is currently deployed at more than 100 clients worldwide. Version 6.0 culminates a five-year development effort, which was achieved in collaboration with key partners and clients. A test license can be downloaded from www.kapowtech.com.
