JackBe: Platform for Enterprise Mashups
Mashups are collaborative compositions of online capabilities within rich user interfaces, while Service-Oriented Business Applications are declarative compositions of Services within the context of a Service-Oriented Architecture implementation. Today, these two concepts are merging into the Enterprise Mashup, a governed, secure composition of Services within a rich user environment.
For the vision of the Enterprise Mashup to become a reality, however, enterprises require sophisticated tools that not only enable the creation of such mashups, but also their effective governance and management. Emerging platforms that provide such capabilities, such as the JackBe Presto REA Platform, provide for these advanced governance, scalability, loose coupling, and rich user interface capabilities necessary to empower business users to use, and eventually create, their own Enterprise Mashups.
