Kapow Passes Major Milestones in 2007; CTO To Speak at AJAXWorld 2007 West

Two new versions of the Kapow Mashup Server already announced in FY07

Bank of America, Audi, Comcast, JM Family, Neckermann AG, Bernard Hodes, SK Telecom, NOAA, and the US Department of Health and Human Services: these are just some of the new prominent enterprise customers won by Kapow Technologies in 2007 so far, a year of major milestones. The company's founder, and now CTO, Stefan Andreasen (pictured below), will be speaking at AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 West, of which Kapow is also a Gold Sponsor.


With John Cimral now CEO, Kapow Founder Stefan Andreasen (above) has transitioned to CTO

"In the past year, many innovative enterprises began to adopt the mashup paradigm because of its obvious ability to speed development, reduce IT costs and create new competitive advantages,” said Joe Keller, CMO of Kapow Technologies. 

“Responding to this increased demand," Keller continued, "our company executed very well, as we penetrated new markets, and added several new capabilities to the Kapow Mashup Server."

Kapow also passed several other major milestones in FY07, including:

  • Strengthened the company’s market positions in financial services, insurance, manufacturing, telecommunications, IT, and Web 2.0 companies.
  • Announced two new versions of the Kapow Mashup Server, broadening its enterprise footprint into the Web 2.0 and Enterprise Content Management space.  The company also continued to build out its technology platform and support new Web 2.0 technologies including AJAX, Ruby, REST, RSS, SOAP and PHP.
  • Forged new alliances with BEA (AquaLogic Pages), Backbase, EMC Documentum, IBM (QED Wiki), Nexaweb, Proto Software, and StrikeIron. 
  • Opened a regional office in Japan and received recognition in Nikkei Computer for a successful project with KDDI.
  • The Kapow Mashup Server was named a finalist in the JOLT Award Competition, and received many positive reviews from the technical press.
  • Introduced openkapow, the premier development community to provide educational and technical resources to foster widespread adoption of the enterprise mashup paradigm.  

Overall the company has enjoyed 50% year over year growth, and the addition of more than 50 new enterprise customers in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2007. 

To foster and manage further company growth in FY 2008 and beyond, John Cimral has joined the management team as CEO, and company founder Stefan Andreasen is thus transitioning from CEO to CTO.

 “We are pleased to add John, who has a 20-year track record with many outstanding achievements, and has demonstrated great skill in balancing operational acumen with technical innovation.  I look forward to collaborationg with him in my new role as CTO.” said Andreasen, who will be speaking - about enterprise mashups of course - at AJAXWorld in September.

As a Gold Sponsor, Kapow is part of a lineup of top software industry sponsors at the biggest ever AJAXWorld event, being held 23-26 September at the Santa Clara Convention Center. There are ten tracks, 120+ sessions and presentations, and a welter of special events on the Expo floor.
