We observe a huge demand for situational and ad-hoc applications
desired by the mass of business end-users that cannot be fully implemented by IT departments. This is especially the case with regard to solutions that support infrequent, situational, and ad-hoc B2B scenarios. End users are not able to implement such solutions without the help of developers. Enterprise Mashup-/ and Lightweight Composition approaches and tools are promising solutions to unleash
the huge potential of integrating the mass of end users into development and to overcome this "long-tail" dilemma. In this work, we summarize different patterns on how to realize B2B collaborations between different Mashup platforms. We also evaluate cloud computing infrastructures available on the Web as they might be a suitable platform for B2B integration via Mashups. As a major result, we provide an overview and first results of an architecture and implementation of a prototype that implements an API for Enterprise Mashup integration services. This prototype is built on the basis of different existing cloud infrastructures and services.
