- Jul 28, 2011 – Critical Need for Streamlined Business Processes Drives Demand for Kapow Katalyst Application Integration Solutions
Palo Alto, California—July 28, 2011—Kapow Software, the leading innovator in application integration, announced record results from its fiscal year ending June 30, 2011. With 34 percent growth in new software subscriptions and 60 percent growth in subscription renewals over the previous fiscal year, Kapow Software took advantage of market momentum in cloud computing adoption, application integration, mobile application development, business process automation, content migration, and automated web data collection.
“There is a tremendous market opportunity right now for integration solution providers that can efficiently deliver real business value,” said John Yapaola, president and CEO of Kapow Software. “Companies want to streamline business processes through automation and integration, regardless of whether solutions are in the cloud, on-premise, behind the firewall, or mobile, as a means to higher productivity and revenue.”
While there are vendors that provide solutions for integrating the most popular applications with published application programming interfaces (APIs), Kapow Software extends customer access to data in internal, partner, and customer web applications as well as B2B portals and ecommerce sites for which no APIs are available. With the Kapow Katalyst Integration Platform, customers can now integrate, migrate, and synchronize data and applications with unprecedented ease and time to value.
According to Noel Yuhanna, principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., “When you have undefined APIs or undefined integration to an application, how do you integrate those applications? Kapow [Software] has a very strong value proposition.”*
Industry-leading organizations choose Kapow Software
New customers, including AIT, Bausch & Lomb, CSN Stores, Geckobyte, Mayo Clinic, NetApp, Raymond James, and Stanford Law School, among many other leading organizations worldwide in business and academia chose Kapow Software due to the company’s innovative approach to process automation and application integration.
NetApp, a global provider of storage and data management solutions, utilizes Kapow Software’s application integration solution across multiple systems for maximum ROI.
“Kapow Katalyst helped us intelligently clean and migrate several hundreds of thousands of files for a critical customer and partner phasing project,” said Amith Nair, senior manager of Enterprise Content Management Solution Delivery at NetApp, Inc. “We were so impressed by its versatility that we began to wonder how else we could maximize our investment. With Kapow Katalyst we are now able to easily integrate with several disparate applications and bring all the data into a single source to provide a rich and more unified experience for our customers and partners. We find Kapow Katalyst’s simplicity, accelerated time to market, and independence from APIs, coding, and pre-built connectors very compelling.”
Championing Integration 3.0
According to Stefan Andreasen, founder and CTO of Kapow Software, “Integration is in the third phase of evolution: 1.0 was EAI; 2.0 is pre-built connectors to APIs; 3.0 is on-demand, self-service integration with no API dependency. Adoption of Integration 3.0 is accelerating as businesses look for application integration solutions to rapidly scale their businesses without increasing costs while delivering real-time business value.
With the recent launch of Mobile Katalyst, Kapow Software saw rapid adoption and acceptance of its mobile application integration solution, partnering with Antenna Software and signing Audi, Commerzbank, SWAGG (a Qualcomm company), and high-profile manufacturing and airline companies.
Kapow Software continues to challenge traditional IT practices while satisfying more and more enterprise companies’ needs to simplify the integration and synchronization of their applications and data through innovative automated solutions.
