    • Wiki-Definition “ Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly” -WARD CUNNINGHAM
    • EVOLUTION
      • Wiki was first designed and
      • developed by Ward cunnigham in 1995
      • The first Wiki site was developed for portland pattern repository which creates web pages using pattern languages
      • The word wiki was named after the wikiwiki(quick) shuttle that runs between terminals in honolulu airport
      • WikiWikiWeb was the first site to be called a wiki
    • Need of Wiki
      • While creating web pages for intranet, it was difficult for the web developers to link pages,navigate and edit them because no other technology was adapted then except using basic htmls
      • Wiki supports all the features of editing linking,navigating and even supports creating new pages by users which it acceptable and adaptable since then
    • Features of Wiki
      • Editing web pages
      • Linking and creating pages
      • Navigating
      • Information on pages will be accurate and dynamic
      • Information is safe and secure thus allowing integrity of data
    • Access levels of wiki
      • There are certain levels
      • Of working access in wiki
      • Only the people working with the project can access wiki
      • Communication through links by embedding them in the common collaboration pages
      • Open to people to view and edit
      • All these access permissions
      • can be done trough proper
      • Authentication
    • Types of Wikis
      • There are several types of wikis based on the scripting language you choose to create the web page
      • The most commonly used scripting wikis are java based, java script
      • based, perl based,
      • php based,p2p wikis
      • Php wikis are used
      • on server systems and
      • p2p wikis are used to
      • connect web pages to
      • external web pages
    • Importing data and Hyperlinking
      • Data Importation is one of the key feature of wiki thorugh which we can get data from external source.
      • eg:if user need a piece of information from wikipedia s/he can access and get the info to your web page.one example of this is Universal Wiki converter which imports and converts the data into the format required
      • Using wikis we can also connect to the web pages that’s out of our domain by using hyperlink technology
      • eg:if the user wants to visit google s/he will be automatically redirected by clicking the link which is embedded in the web page
    • Transparency in wikis
      • Transparency is a key feature which allows communication among web pages and their collaboration
      • Transparency means a system after change’s been made supports its previous framework changing its internal behaviour for which the change is made
      • In general transparency is making the change invisible and allowing the user access to the facility for which the change’s done
    • ADVANTAGES OF WIKI
      • OPEN EDITING
      • ITS EASE TO ACCES AND EDIT WEB PAGES
      • CAN KEEP TRACK OF ALL THE
      • UPDATIONS MADE
      • PEOPLE CAN COMMUNICATE FROM DIFFERENT LOCATIONS
      • NON TECHNICAL USERS MAY
      • ALSO EASILY ACCESS
      • AND EDIT THE WEBPAGES
    • DISADVANTAGES OF WIKI
      • ITS OPENNESS may give a chance to each and every one to edit thus resulting in non integration of data
      • No programming can be done on wiki pages
      • Unstructured
      • Its flexibility cause information disorganised
    • CONCLUSION
      • WIKIS ARE VERY GOOD AND QUICK IN COMMUNICATION WHEN COMPARED TO EMAIL COLLABORATION in a corporate intranet
