Web-based (consumer) mashups were all the rage a few years ago, but what has this technology done for enterprise applications and the people who rely on them? Given current market conditions mashups are more critical than ever in helping companies meet user demand with diminished resources.

In this presentation, Michael Ogrinz (author of Mashup Patterns, Addison Wesley Professional, 2009) will apply a variety of mashup tools to demonstrate solutions to problems commonly faced by enterprise IT departments. The presentation will show how – without the original developers or source code – audience members can perform tasks such as:

Fixing application bugs and adding new functionality
Making an application accessible from different devices
Redesigning a bad user interface
Mining public resources for competitive data

Another benefit of enterprise mashups is that they can empower an entire corporate culture. The presentation will discuss how a firm can realize these “economies of collaboration” and also address the governance concerns this raises.
