Kapow Technologies unveiled two editions of its Kapow Mashup Server on Monday, providing what the company describes as a mashup solution offering universal access to data and services across the enterprise.

New products include Web 2.0 Edition, which increases the ability to develop data-centric mashups based on RSS feeds and REST (Representational State Transfer) services. Developers can build mash-able components from Web resources and reuse Web data or business logic from the Web or within a company. Once generated, feeds can be published as lightweight feeds or services.

The second product, Content Migration Edition, eliminates a cut-and-paste approach to migration of content between or into enterprise content management systems. Using Kapow Mashup Server, source content can be collected and converted to an appropriate format that maps to a relevant target schema or template in an automated fashion. Web-based content can be incorporated into a content management data store.

The new editions of Kapow Mashup Server are available in July. Kapow also offers an online mashup building community, at openkapow, which features pre-built mashup "robots" and provides the ability to build and test new mashups on a hosted server.
