Mike Ogrinz, author of the book Mashup Patterns and John Gerken, a member of the IBM jStart Emerging Technologies team, will discuss how mashup patterns can be applied in enterprise environments to maximize the business value of mashups.

The use of mashups to address the tactical needs of enterprise business users is growing at an exponential rate. With that growth, the emergence of patterns representing best practices for building end-user mashups has produced a wave of new innovative ways of applying mashup technologies to solve every-day business problems. These patterns represent a vehicle for improving many aspects of mashup ecosystems, including: increased functionality and flexibility, reuse, easier assembly, and a new perspective on where mashups can be applied and how to achieve their desired results.

Mike Ogrinz and John Gerken are experts in applying mashup technology to solve end-user business problems. This webinar will focus on mashup patterns observed and documented in Mike's new book, Mashup Patterns, and illustrate how those patterns can be applied in IBM Mashup Center. Special attention will be paid to how utilizing mashup patterns with IBM Mashup Center improves the efficiency of multiple aspects of the mashup ecosystem to achieve maximum business value.
