Presentation of the knowledge base

From Wiki Valley - MediaWiki hosting and consulting


Functioning[edit]

The knowledge base (or wiki) is a collection of articles written in a collaborative way. Each article can be attached to several themes and tags. The traditional hierarchical data structure (folder/subfolder) is abandoned to move to an organisation based on structured data..

Objectives and benefits[edit]

One of the aim of the base is to free users from the mass of mails exchanged between colleagues and to communicate directly on an unique platform so that they lose no time with knowledge scattered between multiple supports – emails, office documents.

In addition, gathering knowledge on an unique platform allows you to compare to detect the missing informations, contradictory or obsolete.

Fonctionnalities[edit]

Versioning[edit]

Visualize different versions of each article, cancel any undesired modification with one click (depending on the rights. Show differences between two versions of the same page. Come back to any previous version.).

Internal search engine[edit]

Find quickly any information or article thanks to the intuitive research feature, find an article even if you forgot the name.

Responsive design: The display of the wiki adapts himself to the device used

Semantic structure…[edit]

…with themes, tags and keywords[edit]

Classify your articles by theme and add keywords or tags to find easily with the research multiple criterias. You benefit from features similar to data bases': finished requests, intuitive research, statistics and sheets personnalized...

Collaborative proofreading numerized in the aim to make them accessible in the middle of the text (for example to make ebooks or to permit the research in a text): example of Wikisource


The technology used: MediaWiki, wiki software free and open source…[edit]

Our wikis use the software MediaWiki (also used by Wikipedia) and several extensions among Semantic MediaWiki and Visual Editor.

The free software and his extensions allow us to propose you prices always more competitive compare to solutions based in paid software.

In addition Wikipedia that depend technically on MediaWiki with an enormous community of benevol developpers is a gage of perennity of the software MediaWiki and of the maintain of the quality. In fact the risk of an open source is that the number of developpers decreases and the project is abandonned.

In addition to be used by a lot of public projects, number of enterprises or organizations like the OTAN, NASA, Intel or VistaPrint use them in intern, we then talk about private wiki.
