How enterprise mashups can help business
Enterprise mashup technologies can help companies solve both business and IT challenges. Businesses seek greater agility and need to respond faster to new market requirements. Current applications such as spreadsheets are too hard to manage, share and keep current and information is often left in silos or outdated. IT has it's own challenges such as a backlog of business requests and constantly addressing security matters to name a few.
Enterprise mashups help to solve these challenges through self-service application development, enabling organizations to move to the next level of innovation, speed, and agility by allowing users to combine and remix different sets of data in new ways. In this way, enterprise mashup technology can provide insight into corporate data that was simply not possible before.
