Mashups evolve into Industry

Dion Hinchcliffe wrote an article discussing the recent mashups’ popularity boost.

“Penetration of mashups in the enterprise is just beginning as their benefits begin to be understood.”

Mashup Tools and Platforms Circa 2008 (The diagram by Dion Hinchcliffe from the article mentioned above)

Well, I couldn’t agree more. Mashup technologies are the next generation approach to infromation integration and management.

The figure above illustrates the mashup market distribution very well, But! =)  Apatar is placed in the code mashup section for developers, which doesn’t exactly illustrate its real market placement . Apatar is a strictly data mashup tool designed for business users. It can, of course, be used by developers, but with the sole purpose of simplifying their work and avoiding writing code. Apatar positions itself as a No-Coding tool aimed at making mashups easy and available for consumers and power users (not developers). So, Apatar should’ve been somewhere in the upper left side of the diagram. =)
