MediaWiki, the best-known wiki software, is used in countless companies worldwide. However, it is not optimized for enterprise requirements. MediaWiki is customizable through a variety of extensions, but this also creates problems. The extensions are not always well maintained, are not coordinated with each other, and as a result, the entire system can only be updated with a great deal of effort. In addition, the interface of the software seems outdated. What MediaWiki clearly lacks is professional support and a contractor for long-term operation and ongoing development.
This is exactly where BlueSpice comes in. The software is focused on fast and convenient work in the wiki but also supports complex business processes. It is not only possible to set up a simple online database. BlueSpice can also be used to implement sophisticated tasks such as integrated management systems, documentation systems, online and organizational manuals.
From a technical point of view, BlueSpice can also be fully integrated into the corporate environment: from connections to an authentication system to two-factor authentication. Last but not least, BlueSpice ensures a long-term development perspective, with permanent further development, integration of the latest technologies, and application of standards.
BlueSpice is developed in three different editions. In the following overview, we compare a newly installed MediaWiki „Vanilla“ without additional extensions or customizations with the different BlueSpice editions.
