CRN reports that IBM is now opening WebSphere to Google Gadgets. One notable aspect of this is that this "could make Gadgets like Google Maps directions available to business users even when they're offline".
This move should enable a much broader use of Google Gadgets in enterprise environments that are traditionally resistant to the use of such applications because they present a security risk. IBM's implementation will manage the security issues, and the use of the gadgets can be audited and tracked.
