ABB wiki software candidates shortlisted

After intensive investigation, we have short listed three possible platforms for future Enterprise 2.0 activities in ABB.

  • Lotus Domino wiki

  • Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server

  • Confluence (Java-based)

We have also looked at a number of other platforms, most of them open source. While many of these are nice applications for smaller projects, generally they do not scale, i.e. they are not good solutions for a major organization like ABB.

We will now set up pilots with the three short listed candidates and will try them out in different projects, primarily within GF-CC (Corporate Communication). If anybody else would like to be part of the pilot, please send me an e-mail or leave a comment to this article with your contact details. Hopefully all will be set up within a week or two, and we will then be ready to roll.

I don't know what all the requirements are but surely Mediawiki is scaleable enough (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki). It is also under active development and is familiar to quite a few people.

mediawiki seems quite scalable to me, considering millions of people manage to collaborate on it (wikipedia).
