An 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.

Peter Thoeny is the founder of the TWiki Enterprise Collaboration platform and is leading the open-source project for 12 years. He is the CTO of Twiki Inc, a company providing enterprise agility platform solutions. He invented the concept of structured wikis - where free form wiki content can be structured with tailored wiki applications.  Peter is the recognized thought-leader in wikis and social software, featured in numerous articles and technology conferences including LinuxWorld, Business Week, Wall Street Journal and more. He graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, lived in Japan for 8 years, and deployed several large scale wikis around the globe. He co-authored the Wikis for Dummies book.
