Mashups are new technologies came to us with The Web 2.0 era.
Wikipedia: In web development, a mashup is a web page or application that combines data or functionality from two or more external sources to create a new service. The term mashup implies easy, fast integration, frequently using open APIs and data sources to produce results that were not the original reason for producing the raw source data. An example of a mashup is the use of cartographic data to add location information to real estate data, thereby creating a new and distinct Web service that was not originally provided by either source.
Interesting article drove my attention today. Some time ago I already wrote about Mashups and I want to get back to this theme again. It looks like mashup were very successful in applications like Google Map, but failed to start in enterprise applications and PLM is one of them.
What do you think? Have you had chance to meet Mashup implementations in organization around ERP, CRM, PDM, PLM?
I’m going to come with more stuff about mashups. Stay tuned…
