Kapow Technologies and Plumtree Software Partner To Deliver Rich Portal Applications

From: Kapow Technologies
Published: Mon May 23 2005

Web integration platform specialist Kapow Technologies has announced a technology partnership with Plumtree Software that will help enable customers to speed up the population of Plumtree’s Enterprise Web Suite through a code-free "point-and-clip" portlet creation solution and automated migration of legacy content.

Kapow Technologies and Plumtree will collaborate in using the Kapow RoboSuite Web Integration platform to simplify portlet creation and publishing of legacy applications into the Plumtree Corporate Portal. It will also migrate, integrate and synchronise legacy content with the Plumtree Content Server.

"Portal frameworks have evolved from a ‘single point’ application access portal to a platform for deploying advanced applications. This new generation of portals combines content and collaboration with application functionality," said Tony Sanders, vice president of worldwide channel operations at Plumtree Software. "As a result, the partnership with Kapow Technologies is intended to provide Plumtree Software with the ability to access and reuse legacy applications and content, and integrate them into portal environment, resulting in accelerated deployment and faster return on investment for our customers."

Kapow RoboSuite is a Web integration platform that uniquely uses the Web front-end interface as the integration point. This gives integration of any application or information accessible from a standard Web browser. RoboSuite uses visual modelling to define "integration robots" that are automatically executed in a server environment for clipping Web applications and turning them into portlets; easily integrating application logic and data for composite portal applications; migration, integration and synchronisation of content into the portal content server; and enabling Web services of legacy applications for easy access to application logic.

"The trend towards integrated portal and content management solutions is driving the demand for new Web integration platforms. Kapow customers are experiencing dramatic savings in cost and time for the development of portals containing both applications and content," said Stefan Andreasen at Kapow Technologies. "With the new partnership, we are exited to have the ability to help deliver such an increase in productivity and efficiency to Plumtree customers. "

Deployed at major clients within the financial, transportation and public sectors, RoboSuite is a complete Web integration platform that automates application and information integration through the Web user interface, helping clients achieve faster deployment and ROI.

Kapow Technologies recently established offices in the UK as part of its global expansion programme into major target markets. Together with new offices opened recently in France, Sweden and the Netherlands, and an expanded distribution agreement with BEA Systems under which BEA Japan will market the RoboSuite Web Integration platform in this market, Kapow Technologies’ RoboSuite Web Integration Platform is now sold in more than 40 countries.
