elucidating the mashup hype-62

Enterprise Mashups enable users to create customized applications to easily find and transform business information and functionalities, as well as collaboratively share pre-built Mashup applications.Therefore, the concept of Enterprise Mashups integrates Web 2.0 technologies and principles with well-established paradigms such as Enterprise Information Integration, Business Intelligence, and Business Process Management.

The concept of EMs integrates Web 2.0 technologies and principles with well-established paradigms like enterprise information integration (EII), business intelligence (BI), and business process management (BPM) (de Vrieze et al.However, the business impact of Mashup introduction has not yet been analyzed adequately since existing research mainly focuses on the underlying technical concepts and principles of Mashup systems (Maximilien et al. Therefore, both the benefits and the challenges on an enterprise level will be addressed in this paper in order to evaluate the potential of service-oriented and flexible collaboration technologies like Mashup platforms for the business domain.The remainder of this article is organized as follows: Sect.Section elaborates on the business drivers and benefits as well as the risks and further challenges of the EM technology for companies.In addition, the prerequisites in order to (technically) facilitate the deployment in a company are described.In addition, we reviewed the proceedings of major international conferences considered important for our analysis to include the analysis of even very recent research.
