I came across a very interesting idea in another blog. Someone has used RSS technology to syndicate Salesforce.com leads. I think this is a fantastic idea and one that I would hope Salesforce.com might latch onto and include some syndication utilities for data into the sforce platform. If they are truly going the on-demand platform route, then this would be a necessary feature for all data objects and would provide ways to build alternative UIs for the data for particular purposes. If they want to keep people inside the user interface of Salesforce.com, then they’d want to pick their spots on incorporating this technology.
A link to the article I read: Moonwatcher Adoption: Salesforce.com via RSS
I’d love to hear from a developer on how this idea could be easily implemented. I am not familiar with the structure of RSS quite yet.
