Many integration projects in enterprises are too small to warrant their own implementation by IT. This leaves a â€œlong tail of enterprise integrationâ€? unaccounted for. To exploit this potential, we propose a community of practice for end user development that will be able to solve their integration needs on their own. In particular, we want to combine a spreadsheet-oriented, browser- based mashup tool with a social network site designed as a company-internal collaboration platform. This should permit many small local integration projects, performed by end users. Employee needs that were too expensive to consider before would then be satisfiable.
