einstein To speed adoption, Wallem encourages employees to leverage their personal interest in Web 2.0 technologies and tools. In the case of RSS, Wallem employees are encouraged to add feeds tied to their personal interests, sports and news. "People use it in their leisure activities, and will be naturally interested in using the same thing at work."

But it’s not all fun and games. Wallem’s managed procurement publish-subscribe environment is designed to deliver dynamic content by role and relevance at each step in the process.
