IBM’s mashups for mobile… bit confusing

So I’m reading ZDNet’s coverage of IBM’s newly released ‘Lotus Expeditor‘ platform:

IBM moves to expedite mashups for mobile | Tech News on ZDNet

IBM has released a new version of its Lotus Expeditor software, which is targeted at mobile application developers building both business and consumer Web 2.0 mashups.

According to IBM, Lotus Expeditor 6.1.2–released last week–supports laptops, desktops, kiosks, and mobile-device clients. The company says it is designed for building mobile mashups such as services for the tourism market, where electronic map applications are integrated with information on local restaurants, weather, or independent vacation-spot review sites

… and well, I’m sad to say I couldn’t get my head around it. I gave it, what… 5 minutes of browsing around on the IBM site and I couldn’t quite ‘get’ what Expeditor does. Sounds good. Lots of buzzwords. I’m not sure how it helps the guy on the street (or the guy on the sales frontline). I get the concept, I’m just not entirely sold on whether you need Expeditor to do it.
