MindTouch Deki Adds Enterprise Integration To Wiki Platform

MindTouch Logo

Mindtouch announced today a new version of its Opensource collaboration and collective intelligence platform. The new version of Mindtouch Deki, “Kilen Woods” introduces new data connection and enterprise integration tools to what is already a very robust Wiki platform.

Aaron Fulkerson, co-founder and CEO, said that:

“MindTouch Deki has evolved into a powerful platform that is the connective tissue for integrating disparate enterprise systems, web services, and Web 2.0 applications, and enables real-time collaboration and collective intelligence – dynamic data collection and application integration.”

New Enterprise Adapters introduced in MindTouch Deki include adapters for:

  • SugarCRM
  • Salesforce
  • LinkedIn
  • MySQL
  • Microsoft SQL Server, Access and Microsoft ADO.NET
  • VisiFire
  • PrinceXML
  • ThinkFree Office
  • WordPress

This new functionality helps MindTouch Deki jump to the front in terms of competing Wiki Platforms as now within a single platform users can create mashups, dashboards, reports etc from within the Wiki interface. This type of enterprise integration will make Wiki’s (if more Wiki platforms are able to catch up with MindTouch and add this type of integration in the future) an easier sell for companies as integration with existing applications is always at the top of the list of wanted features.

MindTouch Deki also differentiates itself from other Wiki platforms in that its existing feature set allows drag and drop in a GUI interface for most of its functionality. This makes adoption within a company a lot easier than other wiki tools in that users do not have to learn html markup etc to create content.

Will be interesting to see if MindTouch can build upon the list of current adapters with integration for high end ERP (SAP, Oracle etc) and CRM (Seible) applications.  MindTouch Deki “Kilen Woods” should be available for download by the end of July

    One Issue I have with Mindtouch Deki is that it requires a dedicated server and or changes to the Apache configuration if you want to run it on a shared server. Hopefully they will update this…many people like to test software on a shared server and in some environments therer are not extra servers and IP addresses available.

    Arthur,

    If I remember correctly someone at MindTouch mentioned that a future version of MindTouch Deki will not require a dedicated server or Apache modifications.

    This is actually an important feature because as you mentioned many companies/people like to test software on development servers first and many times those servers have other software running that precludes the server from being dedicated.

    Not sure if you would have the same issue if you ran the MindTouch Deki VMWare image.
