I saw a demo of this today, impressive.
Through IBM’s enterprise mashup maker QEDWiki, Strikelron will provide its data and live data tools to make it easier for the development of mashups. Operating from a set of data widgets, these can be moved directly into the QEDWiki editor using drag’n’drop technology for faster implementation.
The other aspect of this that isn’t elaborated on is that IBM and ProgrammableWeb are taking advantage of OpenSearch to provide many of the benefits of UDDI without having UDDI. The idea is simple, QEDWiki is the OpenSearch client and ProgrammableWeb is the search service… if you are building anything in QEDWiki you can call a search to ProgrammableWeb and get widgets, APIs, and feeds, which can then be dropped into QEDWiki’s composition tool. ProgrammableWeb is serving as a directory and router, not a host, so you get the latest service the supplying vendor is making available.
