Enterprise RSS aggregation

by on Nov.21, 2007, under Computers, Geekdom, Technology

I am currently looking at Enterprise RSS technology. What a mine field !
No one knows what they want, let alone how to do it.
So I look at it like this.

1. Central location to discover internal and external RSS feeds
2. RSS feed consumption stats
3. Easy to use
4. Easy to configure
5. Flexible

Newsgator seem to provide all of the above. However with the small problem of a proprietary clients which then have to be deploy to 80,000-100,000 desktops (in my case), and you can guarantee that a large portion on the community (mainly the geeks) won???t like the client. So what you really need is a RSS Proxy server,?? that will consume, cache and aggregate RSS feeds and republish them as standard a RSS or ATOM feed, which can then be consumed by the users favourite RSS client (outlook 2007, IE7, Vista, Feedreader etc etc )
Only found one so far http://gregarius.net/ which is open source PHP, I have budget and can buy a solution but can???t find one.??

Are my requirements that bizarre ???

A corporate version of FEEDBURNER woudl be perfect
