NewsGator Joins With /N Software In RSS Technology

The partnership builds a content aggregator for databases, business applications, spreadsheets and directories.

NewsGator Technologies on Thursday signed an agreement in which it will integrate /N Software's RSSBus software with the NewsGator Enterprise Server, producing a combined product that can convert business data into an RSS feed and deliver the information to a corporate portal, e-mail client, desktop application or mobile device.

Under the partnership, NewsGator said it will offer customers technology that can access content from databases, business applications, spreadsheets and directories. Among the products the feed generation and distribution engine would support are Oracle, Microsoft and MySQL databases, and Microsoft Excel.

The combined product would provide corporations with a relatively simple technology for real-time distribution of information over the Internet. "This agreement is another important step in the evolution of enterprise RSS as an integral component of next-generation communications and collaboration initiatives," Dave Keller, general manager of enterprise solutions at NewsGator, said in a statement.

NewsGator plans to offer /N Software's technology to Enterprise Server customers as a co-branded product. The technology is scheduled for release in the second quarter. Pricing was not disclosed.

NewsGator has been trying to extend its reach in the business market. The company last month introduced an RSS system for In January, it unveiled an on-demand RSS reader for small and medium-sized businesses, and it partnered with Motorola to extend corporate news feeds to mobile workers.
