Cloudbased Enterprise Mashup Integration Services for B2B Scenarios
Source: SAP Research
The authors observe a huge demand for situational and ad-hoc applications desired by the mass of business end-users that cannot be fully implemented by IT departments. This is especially the case with regard to solutions that support infrequent, situational, and ad-hoc B2B scenarios. End users are not able to implement such solutions without the help of developers. Enterprise Mashup-/ and Lightweight Composition approaches and tools are promising solutions to unleash the huge potential of integrating the mass of end users into development and to overcome this "Long-tail" dilemma. In this paper, they summarize different patterns on how to realize B2B collaborations between different Mashup platforms.
