Mashups are a new breed of Web applications, created through the integration of external resources (e.g., interactive maps, Web services, traditional HTML pages, etc.) available on the Web. Recently, they have been considered a hallmark of Web 2.0 technologies, placing the end user on a developer role and encouraging both collaboration and reuse. Following the increasing efforts in investigating new approaches to network management, mashups present themselves as a technology that can bring several advantages to the field. Using small examples, this presentation will cover concepts, technologies, and benefits that candidate mashups to be used for different management scenarios.
