and RSS

Charlie Wood has a great example of enterprise RSS up and running in his Spanning Salesforce application.   He’s gotten good buzz around it, even without putting out a press release.  Consider it an early example of combining RSS with an API to get data enterprise data from a hosted application via RSS.

Simultaneously, Ryan Martens pointed me at the new blog.  Built on top of Typepad with the feed by FeedBurner, this is an outstanding example of an enterprise blog that highlights a specific application (in this case – as well as “best practices” for this application (in this case – CRM). 

  • Did Spanning work with Salesforce on this, or just do it on their own?

  • Great question. I’ve been in contact with during the entire development process of Spanning Salesforce–to verify that they weren’t about to come out with RSS support (they’re not), to make sure I was doing everything “by the book”, and to discuss my attending the DreamForce conference next month in San Francisco.

    Additionally, Spanning Salesforce has been submitted for “sforce Ready” classification, which designates partner applications that meet strict compliancy criteria. Hopefully, that designation will be awarded soon so we can get listed on’s partner page.
