Enterprise mashup software provider JackBe has announced the availability of Presto 2.7, the Spring 2009 Edition of the company's enterprise mashup solution.
JackBe officials said Presto 2.7 includes a more intuitive, user-focused update of Presto Wires, the company's visual mashup composer, with many new self-service features that increase the user's control of how, when and where data is mashed, published and shared with others. Presto Wires also includes enhancements to "Mashup Macros," or custom actions that can be created on demand, reused and shared, making Presto extensible.
In addition, Presto 2.7 also features security enhancements that detect and deny malicious code from public data sources like RSS, making it safer to create mashups that harness public information, JackBe said.
"The customer demand for user empowerment is yet another indicator that mashup creation is moving closer to the business user. Presto 2.7 is another significant step in meeting that demand," said John Crupi, CTO at JackBe, in a statement. "By empowering knowledge workers with the right information at the right time, companies are able to achieve a 360 degree view of their business to make faster and more effective decisions."
Also, to support the newly enhanced Mashup Macro feature of Presto Wires, JackBe's Mashup Developer Community has announced a "Share your Mashup Macros" contest. JackBe invites enterprise mashers who want to share their Mashup Macros work, win prize money, earn recognition and perhaps even have their Mashup Macros work included in the next edition of Presto.
