Mashup Examples: Business Solutions

Below are examples where mashup deployment has delivered business benefits where organisations were looking for innovation in the use of information assets and re-use of the software assets a mashup can deliver:


A sales person needs to quickly analyse which new sales prospects to pursue to optimise their scarce time and hit their quota. A customer data mashup that provides a quick view of customer data can help prioritise prospects. Data can be pulled from both departmental and web-based sources. Can include information such as contact information, analysing current stock price data and feeds from company blogs on the web and a map that identifies other customer prospects nearby that location to optimise their time.


A manager needs a simple way to share statistics on his projects with his team and his management. He pulls together a basic mashup that includes information such as charts of total defects/bugs by severity and user, as well as which resources are allocated to the selected project. The mashup includes built-in chat capabilities so that the manager can easily contact anyone on the team to inquire about a given defect. The manager can easily share this mashup with his boss, so they can also keep an eye on the various projects.

Store Inventory
A Retailer needs to quickly see how they can adjust their store inventory to respond to a rapidly developing situation such as a large storm. They need to adapt their logistics to find available inventory and match them with the stores in the storm area. They create a mashup that combines available information on inventory such as number of units, alongside a list of past order history at that store, they can then take excess inventory from available stores and match it to in-progress supply chain logisitics to re-route it to stores in the storm area – ensuring enough inventory for all stores.
