Powers iPhone and BlackBerry Scheduler Apps at IBM Rational Software Conference this Week

ORLANDO, IBM RATIONAL SOFTWARE CONFERENCE - Jun 1, 2009 – Kapow Technologies, the leader in Web data services for business applications, today announced that it has achieved “Ready for IBM Rational software” validation for IBM Rational Business Developer with EGL (Enterprise Generation Language), IBM’s newest business language for building Rich Internet Applications. This validation demonstrates that Kapow Technologies’ Eclipse Plug-in for Rational EGL meets IBM Rational’s requirements for integration and interoperability. The Eclipse Plug-in earned IBM’s Best Practices Compliance indicator, the equivalent of a Gold Star, for complying with 70 percent or more of applicable best practices. In addition, Kapow has worked with the IBM Rational EGL team to create a mobile conference schedule application for iPhone and BlackBerry that will be featured and used by thousands of attendees at the IBM Rational Software Conference this week in Orlando, Fla.

“EGL lets users be more productive in developing today’s cross platform Web and SOA applications, and Kapow Technologies’ validation means that they now provide the ability to integrate enterprise and public Web data and corresponding business logic into these applications,” said Stephen Lauzon, senior manager, Ready for IBM Rational Software and ISV Technical Enablement and Strategy. “Building and powering the iPhone and BlackBerry conference schedule app for the IBM Rational Software Conference together with Rational Business Developer in a matter of days is a perfect example of Kapow Technologies’ seamless integration and added value to EGL application development projects.”

Organizations building mission-critical business applications continue to suffer from major data access challenges – they are not able to get 100 percent of the data, 100 percent of the time without major security and coding efforts. Kapow Technologies’ Eclipse Plug-in for Rational EGL allows Fortune 1000 companies to automatically discover and connect with Kapow Web data services for easy, point-and-click integration with EGL-based business applications. This enables companies to build Rational EGL applications to access any web data in a fraction of the time and cost compared to traditional software development methods.

“Kapow Technologies is committed to providing our customers with the best Web data access and Web business logic integration capabilities possible, which includes the ability to work seamlessly with IBM Rational software,” said Stefan Andreasen, founder and CTO for Kapow Technologies. “The Kapow Eclipse Plug-in allows EGL users to get immediate access to any business logic and data they see in their web browser, breaking down data access barriers once and for all.”

Kapow Technologies is exhibiting at the IBM Rational Software Conference this week. The IBM Rational Software Conference Scheduler is a very simple example meant to inspire conference attendees to envision how new agile Web 2.0 applications can empower knowledge workers and IT organizations to innovate with total freedom. In an ever more challenging economy, this application showcases the modern Web services and data integration tools available that can enable rapid creation of applications, saving significant costs while increasing productivity and leveraging existing IT assets.
