Wiki engine hands-on test
Weaving the Web
Wiki engines drive patient data stores, repositories for ideas or documentation, and treasure troves of knowledge of all kinds. In this review, we put six of these engines through their paces.
Wikis (from the Hawaiian word for “quick”) have been an important part of many computer users’ private and professional lives for years. Wikis are even replacing expensive knowledgebase software in corporate environments. Wikis are perfect for weaving your own thoughts and words, and they make collaborative writing much easier.
The tools consist of a browser on the user’s side and wiki software serverside. The number of engines on the market is well into three digits.
