Momondo Creates Realtime Mashup of Low-Cost Airfares With Kapow Technologies

PALO ALTO, California and COPENHAGEN, Denmark, October 11 /PRNewswire/ -- - New Internet Travel Site Leverages the Kapow Enterprise Mashup Platform to Collect Data and Logic From Dozens of Leading Travel Sites in an Automated Fashion to Give Consumers Unprecedented Ease in Finding the Best Airfare

Kapow Technologies (http://www.kapowtech.com/) today announced that Momondo (http://www.momondo.com/), Europe's most comprehensive travel search-engine mashup that delivers low-cost airfares to consumers, is powered by the Kapow Enterprise Mashup Platform.Momondo leverages the Kapow Technologies solution to automatically collect flight fares from more than 200 websites covering more than 600 global and regional airlines and online agencies to give consumers a consolidated view of the best airfares available on the Internet.

"Before Momondo, a travel consumer who wanted to find the best airfare for a given route often had to visit three to five different web sites to get a reliable answer," said Thorvald Stigsen, CEO of Momondo. "But now, consumers need only visit the Momondo.com site to get a single-page view of the best airfares posted on the Internet. This new web service would not be technically or economically feasible without Kapow Technologies, because it is the only solution in the world that allows our technical team to interact with hundreds of web sites an automated fashion, and deliver results to our customers within 60 seconds."

The new Internet service offered by Momondo is one of the most technologically advanced forms of mashups, because it makes a one-stop service out of hundreds of separate services. The Kapow Enterprise Mashup Platform is used to non-intrusively enable each of the airline or travel websites as services for the the Momondo.com site. For Momondo customers, this sophisticated activity is transparent, yet they obtain the results their search queries in same general timeframe that it would take to get an answer from one of the leading travel search sites.

"We are pleased to be working with Momomdo.com, a true pioneer in the international travel industry, and a very compelling and extremely useful Web 2.0 site," said Stefan Andreasen, CEO and Founder of Kapow Technologies. "With its innovative use of the Kapow Enterprise Mashup Platform, Momondo.com is making it easier than ever to search the Internet for the best available airfare and book tickets, and plan for a positive travel experience."

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
