Foswiki – a platform, so you and your team members can collaborate and edit pages directly in the web browser. For advanced collaboration, Foswiki lets you enter macros to automate pages and build entire applications from within your browser.

Foswiki has been contributed to by people with many years of experience in many industries, so it implements a lot of essential features beyond what is described above, such as:
– Strict access control
– Protection against phishing, spam, and other forms of malicious attack
– Change histories
– Integration with corporate information systems, such as LDAP
– Support for state-of-the-art web servers
– Integration with corporate database solutions
– Support for all industry standard browsers
– WYSIWYG editing

Here are just a few of the ways we have seen Foswiki being used in enterprise environments:
– As a document management system, where wiki content is developed by a teamof people. For example, the documentation for a product might be done in a wiki, with contributions from design, engineering, sales, and even post-sales support through the lifecycle of the product. Wikipedia is an example of this model.
– As a collaborative discussion platform, where someone posts an article that is then iteratively discussed – rather like a blog, though in a more fluid and freeform way.
– As an integration platform, where other tools – for example, issue trackers, translation platform, web services – can be brought together to provide a single coordinated interface for users.
– As a training development platform, to develop interactive training
– As a customer support database, where customers can directly interact with their issues (subject to access control) and communicate though the system with the support team
