Tasks best still left to IT

With enterprise mashups, the lines between IT and business end users get blurred.  End users become de-facto developers, at least for smaller, widget-style apps that pull data into colorful maps and the like.

But there are tasks best left to IT, and other tasks best offloaded to end-users. A white paper on enterprise mashup platforms, published by BizTechReports.com and sponsored by JackBe, shows us where the  separation of duties should be:

Main IT Tasks:

  • Install, configure, setup security and governance
  • Publish ‘core’ data sources (such as Webservices)
  • Assign roles and permissions for functions and core sources
  • Create ‘complex’ mashups, widgets and mashup dashboards, when required

Main Business Unit Tasks:

  • Publish ‘personal’ data sources (from Excel, news feeds, etc.)
  • Visually create mashups, mashup widgets and mashup dashboards
  • Share mashups, mashup widgets and mashup dashboards with others
  • Rate, use, and personalize mashups, mashup widgets and mashup dashboards from others

Message: Enterprise mashups are great tools that the business can work with independent of IT, but keep IT in the loop.
