Why Read This Report

Information workers today are drowning in content — email, newsletters, press releases, and spam — and the problem is getting worse. To deal with this tsunami, workers are turning to RSS (Really Simple Syndication). Although efficient for individual information workers, unmanaged, RSS can wreak havoc on enterprise IT. To prevent problems like bandwidth overload and security infractions, information and knowledge management professionals should implement enterprise RSS solutions. Enterprise RSS turbo-charges the benefits of unmanaged RSS adoption with internal content syndication, filtering, and collaboration. It also provides increased security and reduces IT requirements.
