The Qualitem Feeds for SharePoint® is a flexible way of caching feeds from the internet into SharePoint®.
In SharePoint®, external feeds (e.g. RSS) can be imported into web parts to display a consolidated view from multiple sources of data into one location. However, this can lead to poor performance and overall increased network traffic through the use of too many feeds.
Feeds addresses this issue by allowing for centrally managed (cached) feeds, scheduling their refresh frequency and exposing these feeds within the SharePoint® environment locally, saving bandwidth.
SharePoint® customers now have the opportunity to cache feed data down on to their SharePoint® environment, improving the user experience when viewing feed data. Qualitem Feeds retrieves the Feed data once and regardless of whether the Feed is up or not, Qualitem Feeds will present the last known Feed to the user.
With our easy install process, Qualitem Feeds is installed quickly and easily across one or many site collections to give you the power of feed caching on the SharePoint® platform.
