Enterprise-Mashup-Systeme als Plattform für situative Anwendungen

Nutzen und Herausforderungen für Unternehmen
State of the Art

Zusammenfassung

In den letzten Jahren lässt sich eine zunehmende Entwicklung und Nutzung von Enterprise-2.0-Plattformen beobachten. Der vorliegende Beitrag stellt Enterprise-Mashup-Technologien als Mittel zur Verbesserung des IT-Business-Alignments zwischen Arbeitsprozessen und sich verändernden betrieblichen Anforderungen vor. Enterprise-Mashups ermöglichen es den Endnutzern, individuell angepasste Anwendungen zu erstellen, um so möglichst einfach betriebliche Informationen und Funktionalitäten zu integrieren sowie erstellte Mashup-Anwendungen kollaborativ zu nutzen. Aus diesem Grund vereinen Enterprise-Mashups-Plattformen Web-2.0-Technologien und -Prinzipien mit etablierten Paradigmen wie Enterprise Information Integration, Business Intelligence und Geschäftsprozessmanagement. In diesem Beitrag werden organisatorische Treiber, technische Herausforderungen und hemmende Faktoren diskutiert, um potenzielle Anwendungsbereiche und den Nutzen von Mashup-Plattformen für Unternehmen zu beurteilen.

Enterprise Mashup Systems as Platform for Situational Applications

Benefits and Challenges in the Business Domain

Abstract

Currently, several Enterprise 2.0 platforms are beginning to emerge. This paper introduces Enterprise Mashup technology as a means to improve IT alignment of individual work processes and changing business needs. 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. Involved organizational key drivers, technical challenges and inhibitors are discussed to assess the potential business value and explain the emerging expansion of Mashup platforms in companies.
