One last comment!

Google Wave VS. SAP StreamWork

What do I think? -> It might be not the correct time to compare these to SaaS’.

  • Google Wave is a social application and yet weak in business part.
  • SAP StreamWork is a business application.

But maybe the time will come where we will compare both with their powerful tools 🙂

      I am looking for an option to get RSS feeds directly out of SAP Streamwork, for example on latest posts for the subscribed activities, or new activities, etc. I know I can get email notifications but couldn't find a similar feature in Streamwork to subscribe to RSS feeds. This would be a very helpful function. Is this supported and how?
      Thanks, Bernd
