The Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware software community obviously uses Tiki itself for collaboration and knowledge management. Yet, many other software tools or infrastructures are used. I will review and explain how and why.

Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware was initially released in 2002 and is still very much alive with a vibrant community. We obviously want to use Tiki itself for collaboration and knowledge management as much as possible, but the real situation is, we use a lot more tools. We leverage the fact that Tiki is part of wikisuite by using the other wikisuite software, but these still don't cover everything we use. The reasons vary from old habits to convenience or improved efficiency and they are different for each collaboration tool. I will review them and explain why we use them and how useful they are to us. Also, I will mention our plans for the future.

Sharing knowledge in a team of people working together (company, association, study group or any other kind of project) is key for its long-term success. Even if this is not properly identified from the beginning as a main concern, setting up tools and processes that allow knowledge to be accumulated and organized correctly ends up being on the TODO list at some point, and may come with the wish to have done it earlier. Thus, the best solution is one that is quick enough to setup from the very ...

Wikidata, Wikimedia's knowledge base, has been very successful since its inception 7 years ago. Wikidata's general purpose data about the world is powering everything from Wikipedia to your digital personal assistant. Its linked, machine readable data is collected and maintained by a community of over 20000 people. But not all data should and can be in Wikidata. Instead we are taking the software powering Wikidata, Wikibase, to new places. We empower communities and institutions all around the ...
