Kapow Software™ First to Integrate Google+® and Salesforce® Chatter® at Dreamforce® 2011


- Aug 23, 2011 – Leading cloud integration innovator synchronizes and integrates applications and data with Salesforce without API dependencies

Palo Alto, California—August 23, 2011—Kapow Software, the leading innovator in cloud integration, is demonstrating the power of its Katalyst™ Application Integration Platform by integrating Google's social network, Google+ (which has no API), to the social enterprise solution, Salesforce Chatter at the ninth annual Dreamforce conference, August 30th through September 2nd in San Francisco. As a Silver Sponsor, Kapow Software is exhibiting in booth #1205, where attendees can see the demos.

While there are vendors that provide solutions for connecting the 3,697 web applications with published APIs, Kapow Software extends customer access to data to the 132,018,040 external sites such as partner and customer web applications and B2B portals and ecommerce markets, for which no APIs are available. Kapow Katalyst simplifies the integration and synchronization of enterprise applications, content management systems (CMS), data, documents, and file systems through automated solutions. For that reason, hundreds of enterprises, including Audi, Intel, Lowe's, NetApp, and P&G, as well as numerous U.S. government agencies, have chosen to work with Kapow Software.

Kapow Katalyst is an application integration platform for cloud, mobile, and social — as well as legacy — applications. In collaboration with proven Salesforce experts and long-time strategic services partner, Threshold Consulting, Kapow Software created the Google+ to Chatter integration demo. It is a prime example of the power and value of the Katalyst Application Integration Platform's ability to integrate an application that doesn't have APIs.

"One of the amazing aspects of this integration is that Google+, as of yet, has no APIs," said Kevin O'Hara, practice director for cloud solutions at Threshold Consulting, Inc. "This is just one example of how far beyond the limited world of application connectors the Kapow Software platform is. Kapow Katalyst allows us to integrate with any application, even when there is no API. Kapow Katalyst also simplifies the process of migrating apps to the force.com® platform by enabling us to overcome the artificial barriers erected by many vendors."

Application Integration 3.0 jumps API barrier

"Kapow Katalyst is the first and only enterprise-class application integration platform to enable on-demand, self-service integrations without dependencies on APIs — this is the third generation of application integration," said John Yapaola, president and CEO of Kapow Software. "As more and more enterprises shift to hybrid application environments (on premise and in the cloud), our unique approach to integration not only offers enterprises substantial ROI, short time to value on crucial projects, and rapid process automation by connecting applications, but also enables the integration of applications that were previously impossible to connect due to a lack of APIs. I encourage anyone looking to integrate Salesforce with any system, whether APIs exist or not, to come by our Dreamforce booth, see the demo, and ask about the Kapow Integration Challenge for Salesforce."
