Enterprise Mash-ups: A New Approach to Empowering the Knowledge Worker

August 30, 2007: 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET

--  Everybody’s doing the “mashup” thing, creating Ajax applications that
    pair a Google map with some weather feeds, movie times and restaurants.
    But the question most IT organizations have is “How can I use “mashups” in
    the enterprise to solve real-world business problems?” In the business
    world there are real competitive advantages to be had for those companies
    who can figure out how to access the wide variety of enterprise and Web-
    based data sources available and then rapidly repurpose that data to create
    incremental business value and get more done.

Join Kapow Technologies’ CTO, Stefan Andreasen and Nexaweb’s chief architect, Bob Buffone for answers to this question and practical tips on how to build “mashups” that deliver tangible business value.

ROI of Enterprise Web 2.0 with Forrester's Ron Rogowski

September 20, 2007: 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET

--  Enterprise Web 2.0 is NOT about making blogs, wiki's, or RSS
    technology a part of your applications.  It IS about streamlining "swivel
    chair" application integration for end-users, making it possible for
    developers to build and maintain Web-based business-oriented applications,
    and helping one business unit leverage the UI components and data services
    of another to deploy a composite application to a sub-set of users.

Join Forrester Research analyst Ron Rogowski, Torry Harris' North American country manager Thiru Sivasubramanian, and Nexaweb's COO David McFarlane to get the facts on Enterprise Web 2.0 -- and learn how Global 2000 companies are re-using an average of 60% of their code to build Web applications that reduce network traffic by 90%, and are doing it 4 times faster than traditional development methods!

      the skill set requirements so more developers can develop Ajax
   -- What are the solutions available for declarative Ajax?
   -- What is the difference between server side and client side Ajax
   -- Where does JSF fit?
   -- How to make Ajax scale well to large, distributed team-based
      development projects.
   -- Ajax lacks robust development tools in comparison to Java.
   -- What are the community efforts that can help solve this problem and
