Kapow Software Reports Record Quarter With 64 Percent Growth


- Oct 18, 2011 – Growth driven by enterprise demand for automated application integration

Palo Alto, California—October 18, 2011—Kapow Software, the leading innovator in application integration, announced their best fiscal Q1 in company history, ending September 30, 2011. Demand for the Kapow Katalyst Application Integration Platform grew by 64 percent over the same quarter the previous year due to enterprise demand for a broad spectrum of integration capabilities and benefits. Kapow Software continues to profit from its ongoing strength in application integration, content migration, mobile enablement, web intelligence, and business process automation.

“Enterprise CIOs now require much more from an application integration platform than they did in the recent past,” said John Yapaola, president and CEO of Kapow Software. “They’ve begun to understand more clearly the value of Kapow Katalyst’s wide-ranging capabilities. It’s not simply about connecting systems… it’s about leveraging IT to innovate, build competitive advantage, and grow their company. Our focus on providing customers with unsurpassed time-to-value is clearly resonating with IT leaders around the globe.”

Added Krishna Roy, analyst at The 451 Group, “IT departments are often under pressure to meet line-of-business demands to implement and integrate increasingly ubiquitous outside-the-firewall applications in clouds, social media, and mobile environments into the enterprise. Kapow Katalyst aims to provide a fast and efficient way to integrate these applications, and embraces mobile enablement, process automation, and web intelligence, so that IT can regain control over outside-the-firewall applications, and enable them to play a much more strategic role within the enterprise."

The modern enterprise chooses Kapow Software

New customers in the just closed quarter included industry leaders Bausch & Lomb, Extra Space Storage, Lenovo, Lowes, NetApp, Raymond James, Reed Elsevier, and SAIC.

According to Steve Shaffer, CFO/COO at Jobs2Web, the leading provider of interactive recruiting solutions, “At Jobs2Web, we use ‘Kapow’ as a verb to describe how we can quickly and easily automate manual processes without putting any additional burden on our IT staff. We use Kapow Katalyst to integrate our legacy systems with Salesforce, which lets us very rapidly realize the full benefit of our investments. Kapow Software also plays an important role in on-boarding new customers and partners by eliminating the need to code when integrating their systems with ours. What normally took weeks can now be done in an hour. Overall, Kapow Software is helping us build a very competitive company.”

Salesforce.com and Oracle partner with Kapow Software

Highlights from this past quarter include taking partnerships with Oracle and Salesforce.com to higher levels of collaboration.

Kapow Software earned Salesforce AppExchange certification and listing of Kapow Katalyst 8.1 on AppExchange, assuring customers that Kapow Katalyst is designed with the highest level of Salesforce interoperability. Also, for the first time, Kapow Software exhibited at Dreamforce, where the company demonstrated the power of Kapow Katalyst with real-time integration of Salesforce Chatter and Google+, for which no application programming interfaces (APIs) were available. Social CRM is the “killer collaborative app” of the social enterprise, and Kapow Katalyst automates these “social” interactions between employees, customers, partners, and even competitors to derive maximum value and gain competitive advantage.

A Gold-level member of Oracle® PartnerNetwork (OPN), Kapow Software reached another milestone with Kapow Katalyst 8.1 achieving Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle WebCenter as well as Oracle Database and WebLogic Ready status. Using the Kapow Katalyst Application Integration Platform, customers can now automate the migration of content from multiple content management applications into Oracle WebCenter and achieve maximum efficiency with Oracle Database and WebLogic.
