Traditional Web search approaches are not hitting the mark

Traditional Web Search Approach A search engine is used to retrieve data from the “cloud� in an attempt to satisfy information needs. Search results are browsed and filtered manually by the user. Even if meaningful data is found, the process is repeated all over again.

Pipes & Mashups can be leveraged to combine “Cloud” and Enterprise data

Pipes* is a powerful composition tool to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the Web.

A mashup* is a Web page or application that uses and combines data, presentation or functionality from two or more sources to create new services.

“Web 2.0” Search Approach Search engine capabilities are combined with Web 2.0 tools such as pipes and data mashups to retrieve data from the “cloud” and satisfy specific information needs. A subscription model is used to browse and filter data automatically. 5 Confidential


Seeding the “Cloud” helps influence the value of information you receive

“Web 2.0” Search Approach The Web evolution is enabling technologies and tools to facilitate information sharing and collaboration in virtual communities, where members are active participants as “prosumers” of content, instead of passive consumers of data. 6 Confidential
