What is Twiki?
Twiki is an enterprise grade powerful and flexible collaboration and web application platform based on Perl scripting language. It is a structured wiki application having ability to run a project development space, document management system, knowledge base and many similar tools on the intranet, extranet or internet. It does not require much of programming skills and users can create web applications.
Twiki was first initiated by Peter Thoeny in 1998 as an open source wiki application platform. Peter went on to float a company in the same name Twiki net in 2008 which then took over the project. Twiki is user friendly and has an edit button at the end of the page where the users can edit or delete any content on the page. It is typically installed behind corporate firewalls.
Twiki is a structured wiki and has more improved features. It eliminates the “one webmaster” concept as the content is maintained by the employees to replace static intranet. It allows the users to collaborate on common workloads, track issues, bugs and features. The CMS offers tools like Twiki documentation, FAQs, text formatting rules and if the user is still not clear on any issue they can contact the Support Web, a forum for Twiki users.
