Kapow Technologies and Hippo Partner to Streamline Content Migration

Kapow Web Data Server Instrumental in Accelerating Migrations to Hippo's Open Source CMS

BOSTON (BUSINESS WIRE) December 01, 2009 – Hippo, the leading developer of Web-based, open source Enterprise CMS / Portal software, has partnered with Kapow Technologies, the leader in Web data services for business applications. Under the partnership Kapow's Web Data Server helps companies streamline and automate the process of migrating their existing Web content to Hippo CMS. This allows businesses to perform migration of any Web based content in one tenth of the time and cost associated with traditional methods.

Hippo's CCO, Tjeerd Brenninkmeijer said: “We see a wave of companies looking to replace their existing closed source solutions for Hippo's CMS 7. Driving this development are cost saving on licensing and the maturity of our Open Source ECM products as well as a wave of consolidation among vendors, often leaving the client empty handed for updates and upgrades. The migration process to a new solution is an important aspect that is all too often under-addressed. We look forward to work even closer with Kapow to bring their products and expertise to the Hippo customer eco-system.”

Both companies officially launched the partnership at the Gilbane Content Management Conference in Boston today. An introduction video is available showing Kapow Technologies and Hippo software at work.

“More companies are turning to Kapow Technologies because they are under extreme pressure by extensive cost and time constraints associated with getting their new CMS into production,” said Stefan Andreasen, founder and CTO of Kapow Technologies. “Kapow Web Data Server is the only product on the market with visual automation technology that can eliminate these migration burdens. The result is unmatched data quality and for a fraction of the cost and time.”
