Enterprise 2.0 and Data Mashups: Bridging the Web 2.0 Information Gap

Apatar's Renat Kasanshyn's Upcoming AJAXWorld Conference Session

As the momentum for the new class of SOA middleware continues to grow, developers are looking for simple yet scalable solutions that can integrate disparate data across a variety of on-premises, on-demand and Web 2.0 information sources and applications. With many of such data integration problems being relatively small in scope, companies can't justify bringing expensive middleware to solve small problems. Some of the projects are built using work-arounds and custom coding. The result is prone to operational risk, high maintenance costs, and is inevitably inefficient. After this session you will:

1. Understand the impact of data mashups on developer community.

2. Find out how to select mashup technologies and tools for your next data integration project.

3. Discover tips, best practices, and strategies for leveraging these tools and solving most common challenges.

In this session, Renat Khasanshyn, the winner of the 2007 IBM Business Mashup Challenge, will explore how enterprise architects and developers can leverage the existing mashup technologies to build and deploy enterprise data mashups. This session will highlight challenges preventing the existing mashup design tools from being leveraged across the enterprise sector. This session will focus on tips, best practices, and strategies on how to implement data mashups between on-premise, on-demand, and Web 2.0 systems and applications. Finally, Renat Khasanshyn will walk the audience through the process of building mashup "Cold Call Assistant" which won the 2007 IBM Business Mashup Challenge.

Speaker Bio: Renat Khasanshyn is CEO & main evangelist of Apatar Open Source. He is a subject matter expert in data integration, data mashups and open source, and is responsible for driving the vision of data integration solutions at Apatar Open Source. Renat recently won the 2007 IBM Business Mashup Challenge. He is a frequent speaker at a wide rage of events.

Prior to Altoros, he was VP of Engineering for PriMed, a discount insurance company in Tampa, Florida where he was responsible for creating an e-commerce portal to help consumers find, compare, and purchase health insurance plans online.

Before immigrating to the U.S. in 2001, Khasanshyn was CTO for OOO BelLight "EFA", a manufacturing and distribution firm of lighting equipment in Belarus and Russia. He studied engineering and then marketing at the Belarussian State Technical University and was recently selected a finalist of the Emerging Executive of the Year award by Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council, a leading technology trade association in New England.
