An interesting article “Barrelling Through The Web 2.0 World” highlights parts of a recent Gartner’s report on Web2.0. The article features my friend and IBM colleague Dan Gisolfi.
I extrapolated the sentence
Who is to say the mashup has to remain a Web-based offering ?
because I think that it is very interesting… Not because of its “Web 2.0” bias (as the article implies) but because of the implications that the mashup technology could have well outside pure browser-based technologies.
Web-based technologies go well beyond their utilisation in browsers. I think that they have their place in Rich Client applications also.
I am thinking here to technologies I know, such as Lotus Expeditor or Lotus SameTime. Where the Composite application model actually allows the integration of content and application delivered over the internet with content and application aggregated from the enterprise SOA.
