klint finley Compare Greenfield’s mock-up above with this screenshot of JackBe‘s Presto Wires: Visual programming has a long history, starting with perhaps Pygmalion and popularized by educational languages like Squeak and the audio and multimedia language MAX/MSP. But thanks to projects like Yahoo! Pipes and Lily, it’s a paradigm that’s regaining popularity.Visual mashup app programming faces many obstacles: performance, usability (both for the creation and use of apps) and access to the data and APIs needed. The latter problem, at least, is being worked on by various companies. Mashery is helping companies create APIs. Dapper (which seems to be more focused display advertising now) and Kapow, for example, scrape data from sites that don’t have XML feeds and offers it up in a variety of formats.As we’ve previously reported, mashups are the most popular “web 2.0” technology in enterprises, and Forrester estimates the enterprise mashup market will be worth $700 Million by 2013.

But that hasn’t always been the case – look at the evolution of e-mail, which was originally nurtured by enterprises. And there’s at least one area in which enterprises are leading the pack today: point-and-click app creation and the data mashups that feed them.The easy creation of apps and mashups are particularly of value to enterprises as they enable an organization to vet, purchase and deploy an app platform once and then let users create the tools they need – so long as the platform is able to guarantee enterprise-grade compliance. In a blog post titled “Are enterprise mashups the Excel of our era?” Heather Havenstein wrote in 2008:Users have a long laundry list of projects they need to get done that typically fall below the radar of IT, which is usually distracted with much bigger problems like keeping the lights and pipes on and developing massive back-office applications.Mashups allow users to get this laundry list of needs met more quickly without the delays or costs commonly associated with going the normal route through IT.The new version of KickApps Studio will support drag and drop authoring of data driven and multimedia iPhone/iPad ready HTML5 apps, KickApps Corporation announced today. The new functionality will compliment the platform’s drag-and-drop Flash authoring tools.KickApps Studio screenshotKickApps Studio, launched two years ago and, is capable of various data mashup functionality, is mostly focused on marketing, not on internal use. JackBe, on the other hand, is focused on internal app use. We covered their internal app store platform recently. The company’s products, revolving around Presto Hub, are dedicated to creating secure, enterprise-grade apps from a point-and-click environment.Adam Greenfield, author of Everyware and outgoing head of design direction for service and user-interface design at Nokia, mocked-up his vision for a consumer-oriented app creation and data mashup platform he called “Momcom” in response to Google App Inventor. Greenfield’s concept is a simple, point-and-click interface for creating mobile apps powered by data mashups. Related Posts

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Saturday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for announcing that India had demonstrated anti-satellite missile capability, saying only a “foolish government” would make such a disclosure and “betray” a defence secret.In an address to the nation, Modi had on Wednesday announced that India had demonstrated anti-satellite missile capability by shooting down a live satellite under ‘Mission Shakti’, describing it as a rare achievement that puts the country in an exclusive club of space superpowers.

A wise government will keep the capability secret. Only a foolish government will disclose it and betray a defence secret.” The former finance minister also questioned the motive of the government in making the announcement. “Besides, why was it done now in the middle of an election campaign? Only to boost the sagging fortunes of the BJP,” Chidambaram claimed.

The Hague: Dutch investigators have arrested three former employees of a local company suspected of laundering some 1.2 billion for an energy client in India, prosecutors said on Friday. The Dutch company bought materials and services around the world for the Indian firm which has been involved in laying a gas pipeline on the subcontinent since 2006. “It is suspected that the Dutch company used to increase the amounts on the invoices for the materials and services supplied,” said the public prosecutor’s office, which did not name either company. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The company also acted as a so-called “invoice duplicator” meaning the Indian company was able to claim costs twice from gas customers, the statement added. “The ‘profits’ earned in this way were subsequently creamed off via the Dutch company,” it said. The gains were then transferred via a complex web of businesses based among others in Dubai, Switzerland and the Caribbean, before eventually ending up at a business owned by the Indian company in Singapore. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe suspects allegedly received payments of up to 10 million (8.9 million euros) for their involvement. Suspicions were raised after an inspection of the books of the Dutch company, situated south of the central city of Utrecht. Dutch investigators of the elite Fiscal and Investigation Services raided the company’s premises in November 2017, seizing administrative records. The three suspects who were arrested on Tuesday are expected to appear before the Rotterdam district court on Friday. “In this case Dutch companies are suspected of assisting an Indian client to launder suspected illegal earnings,” the statement said. The real losers “were probably individual citizens in India” as the cost of production of gas is passed onto the consumer, it added.

Court is still big.” Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersHis first title this season, and particularly on his favourite clay surface, is a huge boost for the Spaniard. “Happy to reach that level in the last tournament before a Grand Slam,” said Nadal. “But, as I said, for me I don’t want to talk about Grand Slams now. I never did in the past. Important title, now’s the moment to keep going.” Djokovic — winner at the Madrid Open last week — gave an error-strewn display in his 54th meeting with second-ranked Nadal, having spent six hours on court in his previous two matches. “For me, the most important thing is to feel myself playing well and feel myself healthy, with the energy that I need,” said Nadal. “If that happens, experience is that I am going to fight for titles sooner or later.” The 32-year-old had not dropped a set all week before the final taking a 6-0 set from four his five rivals. “During the last couple of weeks, every day and every week have been better. And here we are finally with this great trophy, an important victory.” Nadal pulled out of Indian Wells with a knee injury, and had not gotten past the semi-finals in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid. “After Indian Wells, there have been some tough moments for me in terms of recovering again,” he said. “I didn’t arrive very well prepared to Monte-Carlo. There have been some low moments for me. “The first round in Barcelona, that was a disaster.” Nadal had been stunned by Stefanos Tsitsipas, a player 12 years his junior, in the semi-finals in Madrid.
