Business description: KnowNow’s Application Event Router is a lightweight software server that connects multiple applications inside and outside a corporation’s IT environment for easy, productive, and non-intrusive information sharing. As a result, customers can integrate applications that were not previously cost or time justified. The Event Routing software captures information about real time business events as they occur within corporate or desktop applications, and then delivers it to other corporate systems, to desktop apps such as Excel®, or to end users via Web pages or PDA devices. With KnowNow, Global 2000 corporations can quickly, easily, and cost-effectively connect their internal systems with partners and customers, removing the traditional boundaries of operations.
