The 10 top challenges facing enterprise mashups

The promise of remixing existing online services and data into entirely new online applications in a rapid, inexpensive manner, often referred to as mashups, has captured the software industry's imagination since the release of first major example,, in early 2005.

Get real: ROI is a necessary passage for SOA

SOA can show ROI from the get-go on a project basis. Progress says they do it all the time. From that, more projects beget more SOA use and methodology adoption.

Unfortunately, they haven't had a chance to show off those applications to the world, but it looks like CynergyTV will change that.

And along with hundreds of available Web APIs, we've also maintained a sustained rate of approximately three brand new mashup applications being released per day. Interesting growth, but is it the start of a major trend?
