Enterprise Mashups?
It seems all the Enterprise Software vendors are touting Mashup features (Infoworld Article). I fell (and agree with Bill Snyder) that the market is still immature. Here is where I am on this:
  • B2C Mashups: (Enterprise App to well known Consumer App (Google, etc.) makes a lot of sense and will show-up in Enterprise products
  • B2B Mashups: (Enterprise to Enterprise App) Mashup may make sense for some well know and large Enterprise Service providers
  • Enterprise Internal Mashups: Don't make much sense to me
IBM is jumping into the fray with IBM Mashup Center. It is an interesting tool targeted at sophisticated end users.

We will wait and see if this is another tool in the IT Toolbox or do users actually embrace it.
