What is a wiki for business?
A wiki for business or so called knowledge base is a central database where your knowledge is stored. Here your coworkers can store internal documentation about products, processes or projects they are working on. This makes it accessible for everyone in your company. Successful companies are good at knowledge management and use a knowledge sharing platform for this, such as a wiki. Wikibase Solutions provides access to knowledge of value in your organization.

How does a wiki support my business?
With a Wiki for business you can create the optimal combination of freedom and control; of structure and free form. The power of a wiki is in its flexibility and user-friendliness. The wiki supports the company by supporting (internal) processes. Think of things like project management, archive documents, collaborations and knowledge sharing.
Knowledge sharing platform
The specific benefits of a knowledge sharing platform are explained on the basis of a number of knowledge management processes. A modern wiki is an ideal platform for supporting knowledge management in your organization. A Wiki provides support for highly prepared forms of information; both unstructured and structured. It’s about modelling and structuring information, enriching and discussing, validating information, sharing information and the ultimate use of information.
Information is collected in various forms and from various initiatives. A wiki provides support for both a structured, highly prepared form of information and an unstructured form where the initiative lies with the provider of the information. The structured form goes with filling in forms, as we are used to from administrative programs. The unstructured form is similar to how information is recorded on Wikipedia.
In general, a combined form is preferred, in which a part of the information is recorded via a form and a part as free text, whether or not based on a template. This flexibility distinguishes a wiki from other information platforms.
A wiki offers different scenarios for structuring information. The flexibility that a wiki offers is unrivaled and of great value in a knowledge management context. The flexibility lies not only in defining and prescribing a structure, but also in applying and enforcing it. During the recording of information, moderators can immediately determine whether all this has been done correctly and correct, guide or instruct themselves. It is easy to keep the quality of the recorded information at the desired level in a way that is pleasant for everyone.
An important principle is that the quality of the information improves as more people look at it and make improvements. This is optimally supported. Fear that information is lost is not necessary due to the automatic version management. By default, every page contains a discussion page, so that proposals for changes can first be discussed.
Validating information is possible in various forms. From informal validation through the "many eyes principle" to formal validation where information is only published when that validation has taken place. It is important that the various forms of validation can be applied without affecting the dynamics of collaboration.
The way the information is shared is similar to a website or to Wikipedia. The information is on web pages with links to other pages. In addition, a wiki offers search options that you are used to on the internet. You can "subscribe" to pages, which means that you receive an e-mail message when a page is changed. Contributions in discussions are automatically subscribed to so that you are kept informed of responses and other contributions in the discussion.
Central to this is that information is available everywhere and that the desired material can be found in a few clicks. In addition, other forms of use are possible, such as exporting information based on selections. The latter is possible due to the applied structure. These export facilities also make it possible to join other organizations that use the information.
