One of the themes coming out of Mashup Camp 3 is the recognition that -- in spite of all the talk about mashup applications -- there are in fact few useable open APIs. The one common interface on the Web remains ungainly HTML. I mentioned this earlier in the context of Kapow Technologies (disclosure: Kennet portfolio company) because Kapow's technology effectively bridges that gap. I'm not a technical person, so I thank to Jeff Nolan of Teqlo for articulating this point much more clearly than I could in his recent blog post here.
We like companies like Teqlo because they are a great front-end consumer of the web services we can create with Kapow's technology (available on the Web at Openkapow). This is the first critical step toward the creation of enterprise-grade mashup applications. And in our view, that spells the beginning of the end for monolithic enterprise applications like SAP and Oracle.
