Audi needed a solution for quickly prototyping and automating its business processes, while gaining instant access to applications and data which were either outside of the company’s control or too complex to rewrite into reusable components. Audi turned to Kapow Technologies to tackle the integration complexities inherent in the company’s legacy data and Web assets and enable its portal infrastructure for rapid service creation. Working with Kapow, Audi was able to leverage its intranet as well as external partner portals and Web applications to create new applications and portlets in just five days versus nine months. Company executives will be on hand to outline how other businesses can maximize value from their existing portals and enterprise Web data assets to quickly create custom business views, and drive business process automation.
