- Aug 31, 2011 – Kapow Katalyst™ helps partners resolve customer challenges with application integration, content migration, and data aggregation in complex IT environments

Palo Alto, California—August 31, 2011—Kapow Software, the leading innovator in cloud application integration, announced the certification of its Salesforce AppExchange listing for the Kapow Katalyst Application Integration Platform. Kapow Katalyst helps independent software vendors (ISVs), systems integrators (SIs), and enterprise IT collaborate on solving the application integration challenge: how to integrate the millions of enterprise applications — whether legacy, cloud-based, or mobile — that cannot currently be efficiently integrated or synchronized due to a lack of application programming interfaces (APIs).

How Kapow Katalyst can help ISV and SI partners

According to Rory Byrne, vice president of business development at Kapow Software, “We have been developing Kapow’s partner community over the last 12 months, working with both ISVs and SIs to help them address their customers’ application integration and content migration challenges. We are very excited about our AppExchange listing, which provides one more tool that our partners can use to deliver faster time-to-value.”

Kapow Katalyst enables ISVs to perform agile integration into their applications from on-premise or legacy systems in spite of the barriers to access that exist. Many ISVs are building applications that address the “long tail” or “fat tail” of specific enterprise functions such as the supply chain, for example, and Kapow Software provides valuable integration in these functional segments, including integration to supplier, vendor, partner, and customer applications and systems.

Kapow Katalyst allows SIs to migrate to the force.com® platform faster and to integrate with any other data source — regardless of the availability of APIs. Using Kapow Katalyst, SIs can create a reusable set of services that address the demands of the cloud, mobile, and social worlds.

Kapow Katalyst is a valuable force multiplier for salesforce.com consulting partners and SIs:

• Gives services partners the agility to deliver Salesforce and force.com projects faster •

• Enables SIs to overcome many of the artificial barriers that prevent successful migrations to force.com apps

• Empowers consulting partners to deliver innovative integrations between force.com and any application, increasing value

• Removes third-party dependencies such as the dependency on APIs

• Allows consulting partners to break down the emerging silos in the social enterprise space

Kapow Katalyst is ideal for ISV partners who develop native applications on the force.com platform:

• Gives native force.com applications unlimited integration reach to other applications, even when no APIs are available or exist

• Enables faster, risk-free migrations from any on-premise or legacy system to force.com applications• Supports mobile applications with real-time data from any source, including location-aware content

• Integrates with the entire spectrum of social media applications

    Seeing is Believing: Kapow Software Demos at Dreamforce

    Kapow Software continues to build on its momentum as the innovation leader in cloud integration and migration as a Silver Sponsor at Dreamforce, the salesforce.com® event of the year, where the company is demonstrating a real-time integration — developed in collaboration with Threshold Consulting — of the enterprise collaboration solution Salesforce Chatter® and the new social network Google+®, which currently has no API; and an integration workflow for IBM® Lotus Notes®, which makes it possible to integrate Lotus Notes — without an API — into other enterprise applications. Dreamforce attendees can see these demos in the Kapow Software booth, #1205.
