A collaboration that you can tune to your needs to organise your information

What do you like best?

XWiki is not just a wiki, it is a extensible development platform to build online collaborative tools. But you don't need to be a developer to start using it, and even to develop small applications. And best of all, it is open source and therefore freely accessible. With tons of extensions and growing, you can customize XWiki to really match your specific needs. We use it to create public WebSite that display business information, and we provide the backend to manage the data on the exact same platform. One tool for managing, organising collaborating and sharing information. Compare to other collaborative platform, we have chosen XWiki because it is open source, and it provide full flexibility. Seeing some of our work, you cannot easily know that XWiki is behind, so much it has been customised.

What do you dislike?

The default UI still needs to be improved for better usability. Newcomers are sometime lost by the powerful features proposed, and developers by the myriad of API available. While you have the feeling that there is real intend to create the best collaboration tool, you sometime feel frustrated by some unexpected behaviours. This is probably the price for getting a tool that smart and very customisable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have information to organise and share, you should consider using XWiki in replacement to mail, office, and other complex workflow you are using today.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We provide collaborative online solution to our clients. We have therefore use XWiki as a base platform. Out of the box, it already provides useful feature to our customers, and it allow us to quickly craft a PoC to convince them to go further. By its customisability and the access to the source, we never reach a dead end and we are always able to provide a good solution for our customers needs.

A good tool for sharing knowledge

What do you like best?

This tool offers the possibility of adding new articles in an easy way. Also, it has lots of options for formatting text. For me, it is remarkable all Macros that it has. For example, it is really useful the 'Code' macro because allows us to add extracts of code that then it will be shown formatted perfectly. Another functionality that I like is the possibility of adding CSS styles to texts and components.

What do you dislike?

In my opinion, it is a bit confuse the way that the hierarchy of the pages can be modified. Apart from this, the WYSIWYG does not work as good as I would like to. For instance, most of the time it is not possible to copy text in editor area when this tab is selected, so it is necessary to change to Source tab for doing it. This means that the process of writing, in some occasions, becomes tedious.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good tool for writing articles that need more options like adding extracts of code.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had the necessity of sharing the knowledge between all of the workmates so, we decided to use this tool to solve the problem and I got it.

X Wiki all the way !

What do you like best?

I like the provision of scripting in pages, plugins and the highly modular architecture. Also the WYSIWYG editor and the LDAP authentication are really amazing and keeps my tech team happy.

Built on the Java platform and open source modules from Apache. Uses HTML and web standards. WCAG compatible which are really nice.

What do you dislike?

Nothing specific in terms of features that made me think XWiki stood out from the crowded collaboration space. No value proposition to bring me back to the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a very crowded space for such technologies and there are various products in the market. Do choose the correct one according to the needs of the current team and looking at all future needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The only possible benefit I tried looking at is that the product was free for me in the capacity that I used it in.

I am working with XWiki solution since one year. It's a great information management tool.

What do you like best?

This tool is easy to use and its interface is pleasant. Document management is easy to organize and use. The directory allows to connect each internal and external person. We also use dedicated areas to talk about specific topics. The system encourage employees to communicate better with each other and stimulates the collaboration in the company.

What do you dislike?

I think the visual aspect of the product could be improved. Rights management tool can be improved too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I invite those who wishes to come into contact with XWiki. Their team is very efficient regarding the advice and support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wish to improve the communication between employees and encourage people to share information.

The knowledge of each employee is now classified by subject and tidy. Each person with a question may look on the tool if the answer is there.

The gain in time is very important.

Powerful tool to enable collaboration and organize information within your company

What do you like best?

Powerful tool to manage your documents and procedures. We are also using it to enable collaboration within our company and to co-create and enrich documents.

Since XWiki is also a development platform it allows us to develop and implement features we did not think about at the beginning of the project. Our needs are evolving, so is XWiki and this is clearly a good thing from our perspective.

What do you dislike?

The user interface could be improved but this has been polished in the newest versions of XWiki.

We decided to solve the following issues by implementing XWiki in 2011:
