Corporate uses of Web 2.0

I have heard and seen of a fair number of uses for Web 2.0 technology, especially internal blogs and wiki's. Both are terrific ways to share documentation and meeting notes, as well as to encourage discussion and collaboration in both.

But what about mash-ups? I'm frankly surprised that pulling summary level data from multiple systems into a single viewing space (aka a screen) hasn't made more headway. After all, isn't the essence of business intelligence? Granted, a mash-up won't aggregate or summarize data from different sources. Yet I believe it would increase visibility into those systems, leading to managers start asking intelligent questions about the data, resulting a more useful and effective BI implementation.
