Agile networked and service-centric organizations increasingly rely on organizational processes of an open collaborative nature that are not well supported by standard information technology. Enterprise documents and service computing are orthogonal technologies that provide promising features to amend this situation, as regards human interaction, as well as situational control structures, but their paradigms cannot easily be integrated. In this paper we illustrate open document-driven collaborations and discuss their requirements. Furthermore, we introduce a service-oriented approach to integrating enterprise documents within SOA landscapes leveraging service mashups for situational document collaboration.
