Earlier this year I penned a blog about the ‘Unknowns’ of Big Data Integration. The focal point of the piece was the need for businesses to become more situationally aware by quickly harnessing data from a variety of sources to try to prepare for a ‘Black Swan’ event in the course of their business cycle(s).
Last week, Kapow announced that we would join forces with Kofax to lead the industry in making data more integrated and actionable in the enterprise. The immediate alignment of our companies and the scale of the Kofax organization have the potential to create a new disruptive force in the Big Data Integration sector.
Over the years, we (at Kapow) have always championed the “TIME TO VALUE” (TTV) metric as the real justification for making economic business decisions. The timing to join forces with Kofax will accelerate the integrated data deliverables to our customers and the larger Kofax family of customers.
The past 3 ½ years as CEO of Kapow provided me with a great opportunity to work with incredible people (our family) in an effort to deliver the best product and service to our customers. In turn, our customers have been extraordinary in their support of Kapow and that was clearly demonstrated at our first ever user summit this past March.
I look forward to an unparalleled growth period for Kapow as part of the Kofax team with access to Kofax’s extensive resources, financial strength and global presence. The best of times lie ahead as we continue to revolutionize the way data, coming from a wide variety of sources, is used in the enterprise to drive the business forward with greater precision, agility and affordability.
Thank you all for your support over the years and for your continued support for many years to come.
