Cloud Mashups

A mash-up is a computing development term to describe an application that uses, combines and aggregates data or functionality from more than one source to create a new service. The idea is that combining various applications into one will help to present data in a more useful and usable way to meet the client’s specific needs. These applications are usually hosted in the cloud.
