BrainKeeper Enterprise Wiki Expands Collaboration, Web 2.0 and Solves the Problems of Traditional Wikis

Share Article

Integrated Blogs and Content Tags headline new features added to the BrainKeeper Enterprise Wiki. This latest release builds on the strengths of BrainKeeper: capturing key corporate information, reducing email overload, collaborating to create a reusable knowledge base, and delivering that knowledge to everyone who needs it. The new features are integrated into the BrainKeeper interface, widely regarded as the leader in ease-of-use. Wikis have become increasingly popular as a corporate communication and knowledge management platform that gives everyone in a company the ability to collaborate more effectively. BrainKeeper has built a wiki for business, solving the problems of traditional wikis and eliminating the barriers that prevent wikis from being successful in corporations.

Blogs and Tagging are being used to help deliver information to external communities, but not for internal collaboration

BrainKeeper has released integrated Blogs, enhanced Content Tagging, and a number of features aimed at improving adoption to its Enterprise Wiki product- a corporate collaboration solution that enables all employees to contribute key knowledge and ideas to a central, online system. For more information on these newly released features, go to http://www.brainkeeper.com/products.

"Blogs and Tagging are being used to help deliver information to external communities, but not for internal collaboration," said BrainKeeper President, Chad Ganske. "We wanted to bring the value of those Web 2.0 technologies to the corporation itself. For example, when an employee writes a Blog post in BrainKeeper about a news article, you get the distribution benefits of a Blog, and the unique, focused perspective of the author, contributors, and tags as they relate specifically to your business. Your entire company can participate in organically creating a library of customized research and ideas that can be easily tapped for a wide number of uses."

These features add value to an already strong corporate wiki tool. However, BrainKeeper has never been considered a traditional wiki. A number of barriers have prevented corporations from being successful in adopting wikis, such as a lack of structure, a lack of control over contributed content, page naming and linking limitations, and an interface that is difficult for many to understand. BrainKeeper has removed these barriers and aims to improve upon the aspects of wikis that matter most to businesses.

One of these aspects is improving the efficiency and accuracy in finding the answers to questions. To help get answers faster, BrainKeeper has utilized the Web 2.0 concept of Tagging and applied it in a way that is unique among wiki products, called Content Tags. With Content Tags, a block of text can be tagged, rather than having to tag the entire page- which means that tags can be associated with the exact content that they apply to. These tags are also searchable and search results provide a link directly to the tagged content.

Seamless Integration

BrainKeeper offers a tight integration between its features. This means that the powerful WYSIWYG content editor that is used to create wiki Pages is used for creating Blog Posts as well. Tags are available on all content items, RSS feeds are available for everything, administration is centralized, and all content can be monitored with workflow capabilities. Learning how to use new features is never an issue- everything works well together and leverages all of the aspects of BrainKeeper that businesses appreciate.

Leading market research companies Forrester and Gartner have both recognized BrainKeeper as an established, notable provider of collaboration software. In addition, a number of significant, well regarded leaders in the industries of technology, education, consulting, financial management, law, healthcare and government are among the growing number of BrainKeeper subscribers.
