Offers single IDE for users to develop, test, deploy and manage web data services robots
Kapow Technologies, a provider of web data services, has released a new version of Web Data Server, which provides enterprise users with web data access, usability and control.
The company said that the Kapow Web Data Server 7.2 allows organisations to effectively build, test and deploy web data feeds and services for new applications, offering real-time, actionable business intelligence.
The new offering provides automation and real-time data access capabilities that allow companies to slash application and data integration project timelines and costs by tenfold. It empowers IT and line of business users to modernise their information applications and save time and resources in the process, the company claims.
According to Kapow, the new version includes features such as, Design Studio that provides a single integrated development environment (IDE) for users to develop, test, deploy and manage their web data services robots; Data Viewer that allows users to see collected data within Design Studio and load directly in Microsoft Excel; native XML Support; and FTP and File System Interaction that provides direct access and integration to FTP directories.
In addition, the improvements in browser-based management and scheduling console include production monitoring and notifications, and new logging functionality for databases, Log4J and e-mail. FTP integration also provides users with direct access to secure FTP, eliminating barriers to data access and simplifying integration with enterprise tools, Kapow said.
Stefan Andreasen, CTO of Kapow Technologies, said: The proliferation of Web-based data, both inside and outside the company, continues to explode, providing enterprises with remarkable potential to leverage Web data services for market insights and analytics. Kapow Web Data Server 7.2 delivers unprecedented ease and power while completely eliminating the need to recode applications for agile, real-time data access.
