2007 - Year of Enterprise Mashups?
I just saw an article/post by Dion Hinchcliffe - Enterprise mashups get ready for prime-time. In it, he talks about various tools that are coming forward as a means to be able to pull applications together using mash-ups. I saw IBM's tool when I was moderating a Web 2.0 event in Los Angeles. It reminded me of Visual Basic in the early days. In fact, I strongly believe that Visual Basic is a really good parallel for what is coming - except the widgets that you put into your application will be distributed services. I think that Dion is a bit aggressive in his prediction of prime-time adoption in 2007, but this is certainly a trend that we will all be seeing in the next couple of years.
