"Enterprise RSS", What?

  1. 1. “ ENTERPRISE RSS”, WHAT? Thursday 24th April, 2008
  2. 2. HOLD ON A MINUTE - WHAT IS RSS? <ul><li>“ RSS ” stands for Really Simple Syndication . </li></ul><ul><li>It’s often called a news feed , as it provides an easy way for Websites to tell people about what is new or what has changed. </li></ul><ul><li>If you subscribe to different RSS news feeds, usually with an RSS reader , you won’t need to visit each Website to find out when things change – the news will come to you. </li></ul>
  3. 3. HOW RSS WORKS News about content changes New blog posts New search results Using RSS news feeds, I save time because new information comes to me from the information sources I choose!
  4. 4. AND WHAT ABOUT “ENTERPRISE RSS”? <ul><li>RSS is an important part of what makes Web 2.0 work. </li></ul><ul><li>Most RSS feeds come from the Web, but as more enterprise information becomes available internally through RSS , users will want an Enterprise RSS solution. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Enterprise RSS ” makes RSS work better inside organizations. </li></ul><ul><li>And IT departments will like it too! </li></ul>
  5. 5. THE WEB & ENTERPRISE RSS DILEMMA Hmm. I’m reading the same news feeds in different place, but not all my feeds in one place – this is driving me nuts!
  6. 6. WHAT DOES AN ENTERPRISE RSS SOLUTION LOOK LIKE? Data from legacy systems Great. Finally, we have an integrated Enterprise RSS solution! And I can even see what feeds are popular, to make sure I don’t miss anything.
  7. 7. FIVE BENEFITS OF ENTERPRISE RSS <ul><li>Mashuperize – provide tools to make composite RSS feeds from other RSS feeds and data, including legacy systems. </li></ul><ul><li>Publicize – make it easy for people to find the RSS feeds they need and the RSS feeds they want. </li></ul><ul><li>Optimize – make sure RSS feeds are available, readable and bandwidth efficient. </li></ul><ul><li>Analyze – find out what people are reading (and what they are not)… and feed this back into your Enterprise RSS system. </li></ul><ul><li>Securetize – protect users from malicious code and support for secure RSS feeds. </li></ul>
  8. 8. KEY POINTS ABOUT ENTERPRISE RSS <ul><li>Enterprise RSS is part of the solution to managing information overload. It also provides the plumbing for Enterprise 2.0 . </li></ul><ul><li>Simply “ RSS-ifying ” existing enterprise content and providing RSS readers does not represent a long term Enterprise RSS solution. </li></ul><ul><li>With a real Enterprise RSS system, enterprise computer users will get a better user experience and organizations will be better able to tap into the power of RSS . </li></ul>
