IBM unveiled new Mashup center for free trial for people who want to experiment and build customized mashup. By using this Mashup center, user will be able to remix business application from anywhere to do their job in a smarter way. Even non-technical people will be able to access the technologies like Web sites and feeds, spreadsheets, databases, applications, unstructured text from an email, video, audio and other information on the Web.
IBM mashup center is hosted on Lotus Greenhouse. Lotus Greenhouse is a Web site where anyone can register and try IBM Mashup Center, and many other collaborative products, such as IBM Lotus Connections, Lotus Quickr, Lotus Sametime and WebSphere Portal. Users will be able to work SOA based application with the help of this center without any change of their own environment. IBM Mashup Center will include widgets from IBM, and a number IBM Mashup Center Business Partners, like StrikeIron and Kapow Technologies.
“Enterprise mashups are emerging as one of the most important opportunities companies will seize over the next few years,” said Bob Brauer, president and founder, StrikeIron. “StrikeIron’s focus on delivering a broad range of rich, enterprise-class data in the form of XML Web services, and IBM’s expertise in providing the infrastructure for enterprise-class mashups, together provide key components of a company’s mashup strategy.”
IBM Mashup Center allows users to use information feeds from enterprise sources. Information from different sources can be mixed, filtered and mashed together to create new information sources and send the output in many different forms, such as RSS, ATOM or XML. Feeds are an easy way to service-enable systems and thus provide the basis for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).
