Tyrell PereraApps and gadgets have become the key driving force for most collaboration platforms today. What is the first thing you do after you buy a smart phone? You visit the App Store of the vendor and customize your phone with Apps that you find most useful. On any social networking site you would do the same. Wouldn’t it be great to have that same experience with your enterprise IT applications?

One of the key benefits of SOA is the potential to re-use existing services. Increasing popularity of Enterprise Mashups and tools such as the WSO2 Mashup Server are proof that businesses are serious about service re-usability.

Gadgets take this one step further by allowing business users to select, add and organize just the right mix of gadgets they need. Based on HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and JavaScript, gadgets are lightweight and pluggable Web application components. They are easy to develop and can be employed in a multitude of ways to enhance, control, and monitor your enterprise.
