Customize Enterprise Wikis In SP2010

Collaborative Thinking

Primary reason I don't use wikis is that we have so much information to track across so many sites that I simply can't keep track of them and forget they exist" as opening statement - not sure this is a real argument, can say that about any new tool not just wikis. Valid point is the need for wikis to support rich information (video, diagrams, etc) and need for compliance, audit, DLP, etc etc. Enterprise Wiki leverages publishing infrastructure which powers Enterprise Wikis.

Do wikis change development work?

Joitske Hulsebosch

For one thing, it was interesting to understand from David Weekly what the online wiki niche is. Large companies have their own online packages and stuff (like sharepoint ) but that wikis like pbwiki come in handy for cross company collaboration. People in large companies are setting up wikis because the other applications run behind firewalls that are not accessible to partners in other companies. Maybe I'm putting my expectations of wikis too high in a way.

Wikis for project management, research and personal use

Jenny Connected

This year the tool I have used the most to support my work has been a wiki. My wiki of choice is PBWorks – although I am also familiar with Wikispaces, but only through the work of others, i.e. other people have set them up and registered me as a user. I started using wikis in 2008. I can’t remember now why I chose PBWorks in preference to other wikis, but think it must have been because at the time it appeared more intuitive and easier to use.

The Future of Collaboration Lies in Human Resources AND Management’s Hands

Despite all efforts to trump it or get rid of it altogether in favour of other noble concepts like cooperation , the hard truth is that collaboration has always been here. It’s because all along, knowledge workers have been encouraged to compete with one another versus helping, caring or collaborating with one another.
