This presentation on Server-side mashups was made by Thilina Gunarathne at the SD WEST 2007. This presentation introduces Mashups as an enterprise integration tool and evaluates some of the existing tools for developing Mashups.
'Mashups are gaining popularity so fast. Still most of the existing service mashup applications are spare time activities of the hobbyist, mostly focusing on annotated Maps. Mashups use the existing technology to build application in couple of minutes, with very low investments. Mashups holds a great hope especially in the enterprise integration world. Developers seem to be realizing it and companies have already started venturing in to the Mashup tooling arena. This class will introduce Mashups as an enterprise integration tool and will evaluate some of the existing tools for developing Mashups.' (source: SD WEST 2007 )
