I’ve been reading about Enterprise Mashups for almost two years, yet in spite of all the press, I can’t say that I’ve actually seen one in the wild. I think that’s about to change.
Today SnapLogic and WaveMaker announced our partnership to offer complete solutions for Enterprise Mashups. It’s a great combination. WaveMaker builds the apps, SnapLogic provides the data services.
1 + 1 = 3!
WaveMaker is a great tool for rapidly building custom apps really fast. They’ve got a cool drag and drop interface that uses the latest AJAX technology and it’s real easy to connect data to the app widgets.
They’ve got database and SOAP connectivity and some others, which is great. But what about the rest of the stuff out there? That’s where SnapLogic comes in. SnapLogic makes is trivially easy to build RESTful data services from just about any data source.
We’ve done some work to make SnapLogic data services easily accessible by WaveMaker Visual AJAX Studio so now you can simply point to a SnapLogic data service and bind the data to a widget. Super Easy.
And it’s all open source too.
We’ll be showing how it all works at the Web 2.0 Expo, so if you’re in there, please stop by and have a look.
