TWiki looks and feels like a normal Intranet or Internet web site
TWiki® is a flexible, powerful, and easy to use enterprise wiki, enterprise collaboration platform, and web application platform. It is a Structured Wiki, typically used to run a project development space, a document management system, a knowledge base, or any other groupware tool, on an intranet, extranet or the Internet. Users without programming skills can create web applications. Developers can extend the functionality of TWiki with Plugins. TWiki fosters information flow within an organization, lets distributed teams work together seamlessly and productively, and eliminates the one-webmaster syndrome of outdated intranet content. TWiki has been downloaded over 500,000 times and is used daily by millions of people in over 100 countries. Some larger deployments have several 100,000 pages and over 10,000 users. TWiki is developed by an active opensource community on twiki.org
TWiki looks and feels like a normal Intranet or Internet web site. However it also has a Edit link at the bottom of every topic (web page); everybody can change a topic or add content by just using a browser. TWiki is installed on many web sites, mainly behind corporate firewalls. Many major companies use TWiki because it is very user friendly compared to some well established commercial groupware systems like Lotus Notes.
A wiki is a Enterprise Web 2.0 platform to create share and remix content. TWiki as a structured wiki goes a step further; it enables users to automate their workflow by creating custom tailored wiki applications. Companies are deploying TWiki in different ways, and TWiki is quite flexible to adapt to different needs. Here is a non-comprehensive list of how TWiki is being used:
- To replace a static intranet.
- Content is maintained by the employees, thus eliminating the "one webmaster syndrome" of outdated and insufficient intranet content.
- As a knowledge base and FAQ system.
- To design and document software projects.
- To track issues (i.e. bugs) and features.
- As a document management tool.
