    Presentation Title: "Web Scraping as a Service"

    In today's competitive world, it's all about being smarter sooner than your competitors. Business decisions need to be based on intelligence data, and the more fresh and targeted the data are, the better and more timely are the decisions. More and more companies realize that the web has become the most valuable source of intelligence information for business decisions.In this presentation, Stefan Andreasen, will talk about this, as well as give a demonstration of the new service Kapow OnDemand, which allows for the industry's most rapid roundtrip solution for making timely business decisions, by mass-automating access to intelligence data already on the Web.

    Presenter:

    Stefan Andreasen, Chief Executive Officer, founder of Kapow Technologies Inc.
    Stefan Andreasen has more than 20 years experience in software design and development. He spent five years in Boston with Advanced Visual Systems working on cutting-edge Java and visual programming projects. In 1998 he started Kapow as a marketplace for cars, real estate and boats for sale. The items for sale were collected from dealer websites and published on www.kapow.net. The collection software was based on visual programming, which made it possible to collect information from thousands of web sites with very limited resources. In 2001, Stefan sold the marketplace to the largest bank in Denmark and changed Kapow into a pure software company - Kapow Technologies. The software was productized and expanded to a general web-based integration platform for mashups, data collection, portal clipping and web service enabling of web functionality. In his current role as Founder and CTO, Stefan focused on all technical and strategic aspects of the Kapow Mashup Server. He is a frequent speaker on the topic of mashups and web-based integration.
