IHS Selects Kapow Technologies Web Data Services Platform For Automated Content Migration


Leading Information Provider Relies on Kapow Web Data Server to Modernize Corporate Web Site

PALO ALTO, Calif. - Mar 30, 2010 – Kapow Technologies, the leading provider of Web data services for enabling real-time business, today announced that IHS (NYSE: IHS), a leading global source of critical information and insight, has selected the Kapow Web Data Server to ensure the most efficient and accurate content migration for its major corporate Web site renovation. IHS is consolidating several Web site properties into one, under a new Web Content Management (WCM) system.  IHS chose Kapow to automate and simplify the complex process of extracting and migrating all of its legacy data to the new WCM. Thanks to Kapow Technologies’ out of the box integration with IHS’ WCM system provided by SDL Tridion, the company is able to completely and reliably automate the migration of all content without manual coding, significantly lowering costs and time to market.

“The IHS Web site project is a large and very important step in our online marketing strategy, and it will transform how we engage our customers as well as position us for strategic growth,” said Kevin Spiller, senior director, Website Management and Strategy at IHS. “After our extensive due diligence process, it was clear that Kapow’s successful track record of streamlining complex content migration processes and the integration with Tridion was the best option for us.”

The Kapow Web Data Server allows companies to more accurately and reliably complete enterprise-grade migrations in a fraction of the time and cost due to its robust automation capabilities. The solution’s intuitive visual point-and-click Interactive Development Environment (IDE) enables surgical data extraction of all content formats, including static HTML pages, as well as cleansing and standardization of all content through its powerful data transformation functionality.  In addition, Kapow Technologies’ certified connector to the SDL Tridion WCM system further speeds and eases loading of legacy data by eliminating the need for hand coding to APIs.

“IHS is a prime example of how Kapow Technologies helps companies move their business forward by eliminating the barriers to reliably access, migrate and integrate Web data – all without costly and time consuming coding,” said Ron Yu, vice president of Marketing at Kapow Technologies. “We’re delighted that IHS is benefiting from Kapow’s accurate, scalable, and pain-free content migration solution that will not only save them considerable time, resources and money on their website unification project but also accelerate their time to value with their new SDL Tridion WCM system.”
