Empowering E 2.0 Users with Enterprise App Stores
It’s exciting to see Enterprise 2.0 becoming more mature. More Enterprise 2.0 vendors are focusing on standards and adopting Web 2.0 technologies. This is actually very impressive when you think about Enterprise 2.0 was born in the Spring of 2006. Andrew McAfee talks about the birth of E 2.0 in this article Enterprise 2.0 vs. SOA. More Enterprise 2.0 solutions are also taking advantage of AJAX technologies to improve the user experience. AJAX is a group of interrelated web development techniques used on the client-side to create interactive web applications. We are also starting to see a trend for the use of Cloud Computing in the Enterprise. Cloud Computing is proving itself as an approach to cutting IT costs while improving innovation. You can read more about this in Dion Hinchcliffe’s article, “Enterprise cloud computing gathers steam“. The big news for the Summer of 2010 in the world of Enterprise 2.0, is the release of Presto 3.0. You can use Presto to empower people in the Enterprise with the ability to mix, match, and mash data into apps powering your own Enterprise App Store.
Power and Freedom through Enterprise Apps
The Presto Platform empowers application developers and power users to create, customize and share Enterprise Apps mashups for faster decisions and better business results. Presto provides a solution for every part of the Enterprise App lifecycle, from Services to Mashups to Apps to the App Store, while also meeting the toughest enterprise security and governance requirements. Equally important, Presto empowers your high-value employees to take advantage of your organization’s information assets – large applications like ERP, CRM, and SFA – and quickly marry them with external data sources such as Web services and news feeds to make better decisions from this disparate information.
