Dion Hinchcliffe asserts in this post that enterprise mashupsare becoming increasingly important to IT organizations and thebusiness they support. However tools to enable the creation ofenterprise mashups are few and far between. In fact, while he notes "Not sure about any of this? IBM has clearly identified mashups as a key enterprise trend as well", he only cites one tool that meets all his criteria:
"However,I've recently come across one product that clearly shows almost thefull potential of enterprise mashups in a single package, despite a fewrough edges.Looks likeI've got a new lunchtime research project for the week. The company responsible for DataMashups.com is Applibase, Inc. On their site they have some additional background material on their offerings and what they are trying to accomplish. Anyone outthere messed with this site? If so, please comment and let me knowwhat you think.
I recently came across Applibase's impressive DataMashups.com site,and more than any other product I've seen so far, it clearlydemonstrates the possibilities and potential of enterprise mashupsguided by end-users and shared amongst co-workers. The site has anexcellent service previewthat lets you quickly start assembling mashups visually, right online,using a rich palette of pre-existing widgets, feeds, data from localand remote SQL databases, and much more."
