Happy Friday to All! Was wondering what everyone uses for collaboration and content management (information sharing, storage, creation, organization, etc.). We use MediaWiki, an open source package, to document almost everything we do. It has been a great resource as we have been able to document our network, our procedures, protect documents that are only relevant to certain groups, etc. But like everything, it is not perfect. We often find ourselves looking to other avenues to accomplish things that our WiKi can’t do well, like keeping documents in file shares for everyone to access, or using Google docs, using MS Project for project planning, editing spreadsheets in MS Excel because MediaWiKi is too cumbersome.
So, what do you use? We’ve looked at a couple of products that look promising such as MS SharePoint, Confluence, Drupal, and Alfresco.
