Ten Reasons Why "Enterprise RSS" Has Failed To Become Mainstream

Collaborative Thinking

The article below is interesting in that it does call out a dark truth - enterprise adoption of feed syndication tools has been lacking. The first concept to understand is that the key focus point for Enterprise RSS is not the reader - it's the feed syndication platform (the server back-end) that provides centralized administration, feed management and other services (e.g., Employees may not know about feed readers and feed syndication (an awareness, education and training issue).

Enterprise RSS - RRW Readers Speak Out

Collaborative Thinking

I strongly agree that those thinking about application design, information architecture, search, collaboration, portals, and so on need to think about feed syndication as another communication channel and user experience around feeds as the build and deploy systems. Obviously, outbound marketers are starting to use it to syndicate messaging via blogs and corp web sites. It is not a feed syndication platform. Connections is not a feed syndication platform.

Mashup Hub is not a feed syndication platform (e.g., And The Ugly IBM demod some feed server technology within its Innovation Lab at Lotusphere that could evolve into a feed syndication platform but it seems like this nugget of gold remains undiscovered at the management level.

Collaborative Thinking

More acquisitions - perhaps one of the mashup, or PaaS, or feed syndication platform vendors or a mobile player. Exposing RSS/Atom feeds is one thing but will Cisco include a feed syndication platform within WebEx Connection (ala Attensa, NewsGator)? Synergies between XMPP/Jabber and Atom/AtomPub for applications and syndication of operational data form back-end systems? What about portlets for integrating WebEx Connect with other portal platforms? widget syndication)?

It also leaves Microsoft clients without a clear framework for how XML feeds and feed syndication comes together for those investing in the Microsoft platform. But I wish Microsoft would fix some of the more basic gaps and glaring holes in how it is approaching XML feeds and feed syndication in general. SharePoint is not a feed syndication platform - its just another application that exposes feeds.

"Social Presence" is the uber concept that will build around a feed syndication platform that needs to have backward support for existing presence solutions but opens up the door to many more non-communication activities to become part of what makes you “present”.
