Coghead is a web application company based out of Redwood City, California. The company offers a Web-based service for building and hosting custom online database applications. Applications are built around custom data collections (similar to tables) and are typically designed to facilitate management of, and collaboration on, business data. Examples of Coghead's "gallery" applications include project management, simple Customer relationship management, bug tracking and extreme programming.

Coghead's service was available through a limited-access beta program before "going live" for free trial accounts in April, 2007. Coghead launched its paid subscription plans in June, 2007.

On February 19, 2009, Coghead announced that its intellectual property assets (its 'service') had been acquired by SAP AG (NYSE:SAP). [1]

The service is not offered anymore and the website is not available.


Coghead's product is a fully hosted environment for building, accessing, and maintaining applications and the associated business data. Like other so-called "Web 2.0" companies, Coghead has built its product around the idea of "software as a service" or (as the company prefers[2] ) "webware," a term coined by Rafe Needleman, former editor and chief blogger for Webware.

The product is intended to allow users to design a range of applications from scratch using only a drag and drop, WYSIWYG user interface, with very limited scripting or coding (if any) required. Coghead describes its target audience as "tech-savvy businesspeople," and as such has tried to limit the amount of programming or design experience required to author applications in its platform.

Coghead also offers its paid subscribers the ability to develop and publish "Coglets," Web forms that allow site visitors to view data in, or submit data into, the host's Coghead database.

On 2/19/09, Coghead announced that SAP AG had acquired the Coghead service through an asset purchase.

Coghead has closed his doors at 1st Q on 2009
