Yes, I know you can't download IBM Mashup Center yet, but you will be able to very soon, I promise. I've been heads-down working with our awesome dev teams getting this ready for beta, but unfortunately, we're just not ready for a public beta _quite_ yet. So, here's a deck that I pulled together that I just got clearance to blog about today that reveals some additional details of Mashup Center, Lotus Mashups, and InfoSphere MashupHub -
Yesterday we formally announced "IBM Mashup Center," an end-to-end solution for organizations looking to Web 2.0-enable their existing infrastructure as well as build mashups and situational apps for internal and external use. The key here is that the product is actually simple enough for business users to utilize... (I, for example, have built a few "HelloWorld" apps in my day, and I can use the transformation capabilities, which is probably the most difficult - if you want to call it that - feature).
Here's a brief deck that overviews IBM Mashup Center (with some details in here that weren't revealed in yesterday's PR or the IMPACT presentation) for you guys to check out. Specifically, this digs into a lot of the features that InfoSphere MashupHub has - like transformation capabilities, connectors to existing systems, catalog features, etc. It also digs a bit into Lotus Mashups, which is another key product we partnered with to create Mashup Center.
If you recall from my previous posts, MashupHub is not only built with an APP based open API structure, but it was also built with the idea that not only mashups could consume the information created in the Hub, but things like mobile devices, other apps, etc can consume this information as well. More on that later...
