Our “No Coding” tagline has resonated with many of you. Thank you for the support and positive comments in the media and your blogs. Disruptive technologies often have the opposite effect e.g. making people uncomfortable. The Kapow Web Data Server is truly a paradigm shift – radically changing how traditionally complex migration of data between source and destination systems or turning applications into web services is done.
Many customers have described to me the “aha” moment they’ve had. Across the board, our customers kept saying to us, “the amazing thing about the Web Data Server is that it requires no coding”. It’s great when your customers do your marketing for you!
Two revolutionary inventions with the Kapow Web Data Server are key to our ability to eliminate traditional coding associated with Business Intelligence, Data Integration, and application integration projects:
1. Existing applications can be easily accessed as-is through their HTML/AJAX front-end through our point-and-click visual development tool, eliminating the need to deal with proprietary APIs. Even better, it’s done in the context of the content owner or business user (through what they see in their web browser), eliminating any misunderstandings that occur when explaining to coders what needs to be done i.e. translating business/ functional requirements to technical specs.
2. Instant, visual feedback allows results to be seen on the spot – delivering high productivity and time to market improvements.
We have several videos on our website demonstrating how users easily access, enrich, and serve web data with “no coding”:
• Harvest the web for pricing and market intelligence
• Access and serve web data from Linkedin, Jigsaw and more with no coding
In fact, the tool is intuitive and easy enough that even our marketers have been known to build their own Kapow robots to harvest web data.
But programmers love our product even more. Why? It makes them more productive. With a visual interface, real-time feedback, and 100% accuracy, programmers get more done in a lot less time.
All Content Migration, data warehouse ETL, data integration and application development projects require an iterative process, from first attempt until solved.
With traditional methods, each iteration can take weeks and even months to get it right. This is cumbersome and frustrating for most.
The Kapow Web Data Server cuts down each iteration to 3 simple steps (measured in minutes):
1. Visually instruct what you want (without coding), just like working with the data in a web browser (point and click).
2. See the end result in real-time, right in the middle of instructing how and what to do. (Since this happens real-time, step 1 and 2 are basically the same… but would you believe me if I called it a 2 step process?)
3. Modify instructions based on the instant, visual feedback, i.e. go back to step 1.
This extremely quick turn-around per iteration with the Kapow Web Data Server allows you to get to 100% of what you want. 100% accuracy in 1/10th the time. And did I mention “no coding”?
Don’t just take my word for it, please check out what Intel and Audi had to say about Kapow.
Technology continues to evolve. The market demands it. Register for our free trial. It really works.
