Kapow Software (formerly Kapow Technologies) launched Kapow Katalyst 8.0, an extension of the company's product portfolio for rapid integration and delivery of data to any application and any device. At the heart of the Katalyst platform is the Kapow Extraction Browser, a browser-based data integration engine designed to support data extraction from enterprise, Web and cloud applications without the need for existing application programming interfaces (APIs). The new platform is equipped with features that support collaboration among different departments, business stakeholders, application developers and IT, allowing them to deploy Kapow for their most strategic enterprise data integration projects.

Kapow Katalyst automatically extracts, transforms, integrates, and migrates data to and from any application and device. New to Kapow Katalyst is a Web-based management console that improves cross-departmental and cross-functional collaboration around strategic integration projects. In addition, the management console is 100 percent compliant with today's enterprise IT infrastructure and security requirements, allowing Kapow Katalyst users to leverage their current IT investments. The new console also enables IT to continuously monitor the status of their organization's entire production system across the enterprise to ensure maximum performance, governance and security.

Additional features and benefits of Kapow Katalyst include:

  • Easy to deploy for multiple projects and solutions across the enterprise: Cross-functional and roles-based data sharing, data delivery, and API generation

  • Direct connection to existing governance setup: User role management leverages existing LDAP and Active Directory policies

  • Compatible with existing IT infrastructure: Deployable on major J2EE application servers such as IBM Websphere, Oracle WebLogic, and Tomcat

  • Easy collaboration between IT and application developers: One-click generation of shareable APIs in Java/.NET or SOAP/REST Web services in users' existing Java and .NET application server infrastructure

The platform's main solution areas include cloud/SaaS integration, partner integration, business process automation, mobile enablement, social media monitoring, market intelligence, automated Web data extraction and open-source intelligence.
