Companies to Host August 30 Webinar to Showcase Real-World Mashups for Business

PALO ALTO, CA and BURLINGTON, MA - Aug 29, 2007 – Kapow Technologies and Nexaweb announced a partnership to deliver on the promise of Enterprise Web 2.0, including composite, mashup and other rich Internet applications (RIAs). The combination of Nexaweb and Kapow Technologies enables an enterprise to create mashup applications that improve efficiency, decision making, and productivity by allowing knowledge workers to access and work with internal and external data in real-time, regardless of location, browser, or OS via a Web.

The Kapow Mashup Server gives companies the ability to take any application component with a Web interface and quickly and easily repurpose it into an application involving Web-based content, data or business logic. The Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0 Platform is a standards-based application development and deployment solution that enables organizations to utilize legacy, SOA and third-party data to create and deploy Ajax-based, mission-critical business applications over the Web. Kapow Technologies and Nexaweb solutions are perfectly complimentary, and can be implemented together to deliver full-featured, composite applications that deliver access to enterprise-data and third-party resources alongside productivity, collaboration, and communications tools in a single, browser-based application window.

"Information access is more important than ever in today's competitive business environment," said David McFarlane, COO at Nexaweb. "To gain an edge, and truly empower a workforce, enterprises cannot only provide real-time access to data behind the firewall. External data such as market quotes, politics, world events, weather, traffic, and third-party analysis and commentary can have significant impact on your business, and consequently should be available to your workforce to help them make better decisions, faster. We are excited to be working with Kapow Technologies to offer customers a comprehensive Enterprise Web 2.0 solution at such a competitive price point."

"We are pleased to be working with Nexaweb, because together, we enable companies to develop powerful, new Web 2.0 solutions for enterprises at a fraction of the time and costs associated with traditional application development and integration," said John Yapaola, COO of Kapow Technologies. "Both Nexaweb and Kapow Technologies are well established in the financial services industry. Consequently, we are currently working together on select projects to deliver high ROI for our customers."

As part of the partnership with Nexaweb, Kapow Technologies will join the Nexaweb Web2SOA Ecosystem Program and work with Nexaweb and its other partners to create a collection of Enterprise Web 2.0 and SOA solution interoperability and reference architecture materials.
