Kapow Software on Wednesday announced it has joined the Google Enterprise Partner program. With this new partnership, the company’s Kapow Katalyst Application Integration Platform 9.0 extends the power of Google search technologies across the enterprise and helps customers get more value out of their Google enterprise search deployments.

“Joining the Google Enterprise Partner program helps us provide enhanced Google search to enterprise users. With Kapow Katalyst our customers rapidly create fully enriched feeds from any content source, maximising the return on their search technology investment,” said John Yapaola, CEO of Kapow Software. “Kapow Katalyst extends the reach of Google Search Appliance to incorporate content locked within applications, even those without APIs, and enhances its value by enabling powerful metadata enrichment that dramatically improves search quality and content findability.”

The Google Enterprise Partner program includes developers, consultants and independent software vendors that provide value-added services for Google enterprise products.

“Kapow Software is a valuable addition to the Google Enterprise Partner program. We look forward to expanding the power of Google search by providing Kapow Katalyst to customers,” said Matthew Eichner, general manager, Enterprise Search, Google.

Kapow Katalyst can make any application searchable – including legacy applications from IBM, Oracle and SAP, and those owned by customers, partners, and supplier – by crawling it to extract business-critical metadata and creating a Google Search Appliance feed. Kapow Katalyst can even create a Google Search Appliance feed from any of the current wave of Web 2.0 apps including wikis, community sites, support apps, and any of the ever-growing number of social and collaborative apps quickly and easily. By enriching feeds with metadata that reflects user, customer or industry-specific context, Kapow Katalyst users achieve better, more relevant search results wherever they are needed to support customers, improve productivity or reduce cost.
