Inxight Software, a provider of enterprise software solutions for information discovery and Kapow Technologies, a provider of Web Integration, have entered into an agreement to integrate and jointly market and sell the Kapow Web Integration platform with Inxight SmartDiscovery Analysis Server. The combined solution can enable clients to reach and analyze any structured or unstructured information available on the Web.

Inxight will resell Kapow's products to customers seeking additional functionality to collect information from Web resources for processing within the Inxight SmartDiscovery Analysis Server platform. With the Kapow Web Integration Platform, users are able to collect Web data, and extract relevant content and information in conjunction with their enterprise content. In addition, the product is designed to help customers keep their content collection fresh through automated or scheduled synchronization of content. In addition, if information is not found in the customer's current collection, an ad-hoc query system that is part of the solution can collect and normalize the content in real-time and insert it into Inxight SmartDiscovery. Once collected, users can then extract and analyze the unstructured text in the crawled data, using Inxight SmartDiscovery Analysis Server, which can process text and extract more than 30 entities such as people, places, currencies, dates, organizations, etc. Analysis Server also extracts facts and events involving these entities, such as travel events, purchase events, and member-of relationships.

The combined Kapow Web Integration Platform and SmartDiscovery Analysis Server offer: Business Intelligence--users can automate the collection and overview of their competitor's movement and/or market sector, including information such as press release data, new product launches, price changes, selling time, etc.; Data Aggregation--users can automate their data collection and data validation procedures by automatically monitoring and collecting information from any Web based source, including company information, news, press releases, product catalogs, online price comparisons, and public company rules and laws; Automating Business Processes--users can offer business partners the ability to automate manual procedures, such as sending an ad for inclusion in printed media, synchronizing product catalogs and prices into the marketplace, etc.; and Data Conversion--which can be used as a data mediator, especially when importing, exporting, or synchronizing data to and from content management systems using a Web front-end. Kapow Technologies' Web Integration Platform and Inxight's SmartDiscovery Analysis Server are generally available now.
