Talk: Structured Wikis at Work - Enterprise 2.0 in Action
Peter Thoeny will be speaking on Wikis at our next meeting on November 23rd at LookSmart.
A enterprise wiki enables teams to organize and share content and knowledge in an organic and free manner, and to schedule, manage and document their daily activities. A wiki can also be used as an intranet where employees contribute content collaboratively, replacing a webmaster maintained intranet.
This talk explains how wikis can be used at the workplace, including initial rollout, social aspects and security concerns. It also explains how teams can use TWiki, a leading open source enterprise collaboration platform, to build tailored wiki applications supporting their workflow and business processes. Learn how a structured wiki can bring Enterprise 2.0 into the workplace.
