Question & Answer: What wiki platforms would you recommend for getting started with wikis?

Posted by Pierre Khawand on Sun, Apr 25, 2010 @ 09:24 AM

wiki platformsMany wikis are available on the market today and they offer a wide range of capabilities. Some are hosted solutions and well suited for small teams who want to get started quickly and easily without IT support while others are enterprise solutions that can be setup within the company firewall and would require IT support.  

Here are some examples of wikis that we mention in some of our collaboration workshops:  

Many of the above wikis have free trials available and Twiki for instance is an open source solution which you can download and install on your server for free.

For an exhaustive list of wikis (more than 100 of them) and comprehensive feature comparison, refer to http://www.wikimatrix.org/  

By the way, if you are already using Microsoft SharePoint, one of the templates that are available is a wiki template. This allows you to create a new team site that is a wiki. While this is not a full featured wiki like the above mentioned platforms, it can serve your basic needs and can be a good starting point until a full featured wiki platform is in place.
