Kapow Technologies Victorious in 2008 Jolt Awards Competition

Company Takes Top Honors in Enterprise Tools Category for Unique Abilities in Creating Mashup and Web Intelligence Applications

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) - Kapow Technologies, the expert in harvesting mashable public and private web intelligence with software that turns the web into the world's largest database, announced today that the Kapow Mashup Server Web 2.0 Edition has won the 2008 Jolt Product Excellence Award, Enterprise Tools Category.

The Jolt Awards, often referred to as the "Oscars® of software development," recognize those products, books and websites that have "jolted" the industry in the past year. Hundreds of Enterprise Tools Category entrants, including some of the world's largest software vendors and innovative startups are screened by a thorough lab-review process by a panel of judges consisting of the foremost industry insiders, columnists, and technology leaders. Judging criteria are meant to distinguish outstanding products ahead of the curve, and prove that they deliver productivity, innovation, quality, ROI, risk and flexibility.

"Winning a Jolt Award is one of the highest honors in the software industry," said Stefan Andreasen, CTO and founder of Kapow Technologies. "The award validates the Kapow Mashup Server's uniqueness and effectiveness. While there are a lot of different companies that focus on providing the visual composition tools for mashup components, Kapow Technologies is the only solution on the market today in use at hundreds of enterprises around the globe that enables access to the underlying data sources and services to be mashed up, whether they are located inside the organization or on the Web."

The Web 2.0 Edition of the Kapow Mashup Server is optimized to enable easy and quick creation of mashable components from just about any web resource, making it possible to reuse web data or business logic from inside a company or the public web. Once the feeds have been generated, they can be published as lightweight RSS/Atom feeds or REST services, typically used by mashup builders to develop quick-to-assemble ad hoc applications that combine web content from different sources into a new application. The Web 2.0 Edition makes it possible for IT organizations to cost-effectively address the long tail of their application backlog, using mashups as a means to rapidly deploy IT solutions to the edge of the enterprise. A variety of use cases of the Kapow Mashup Server can be found here.
