What’s your enterprise mashup strategy? This question is being asked more frequently these days as mashups evolve from being primarily a consumer internet trend to becoming more of a force behind the corporate firewall.

In this session we’ll look at the big picture of trends, strategy, and tactics for enterprise mashups. What are examples of successful enterprise mashups? What are the major obstacles to enterprise adoption? How are tool vendors looking to tackle this market? And how will public web APIs fit within enterprise applications?
