Enterprise RSS Review
I love the opening line: "you'd have to have been living on Pluto to have not heard of RSS by now. You probably use it to keep up with your favorite blogs. You may have even wondered how you could use it in your business."
Maybe but we have to keep remembering that we still have a long way to go to educate people about the true value from an ROI and time savings perspective.
He writes, "For a few simple feeds, blogging software probably gives you all the management capabilities you need. But if you really want to exploit RSS for work purposes, you need KnowNow ESS.
And then later:
"I found ESS to be an excellent system for managing syndicated feeds. The various pieces work together well, and the browser-based set-up and configuration make it easy to get going. The ability to capture, aggregate, and filter traditional RSS feeds as well as data from back-office systems makes ESS a must-have tool for businesses looking to exploit syndication.”
And another kudo about the value it can bring an organization: “This is a great way for a company to create RSS-based announcements and other special purpose lists.”
Charlie Wood talks to Matthew Bookspan from Attensa and Ron Rasmussen from KnowNow about the state of the Enterprise RSS market, how customers are using their products, their views on various feed-related technologies, how their products differ from one another, and what they see coming in the year ahead.
Charlie says of KnowNow that he sees them as the Company that has pioneered the RSS enterprise space. Click here to listen to the podcast of the interview.
