In short interviews with our employees we illuminate aspects and questions of our daily work with BlueSpice and our customers. Today’s topic: rights management. An interview with Florian Bäckmann, responsible for technical support at Hallo Welt! GmbH.
A wiki is the central tool for sharing information about changing products and services centrally, efficiently and systematically. Are there best practises? We have compiled the most important questions.
When companies develop their services and products, there are many questions that need to be answered quickly and communicated to the relevant departments and teams:
- What is included in the product?
- How is the product calculated?
- How does the product differ from competing products?
- Is there a need to observe certain procedures and requirements at the time of delivery?
- Where is there additional information about quality features or about similar products in the product range?
- What are the experiences with this product and how should it be further developed?
Sales, development, project management and support depend on up-to-date information in order to carry out their tasks efficiently and efficiently. Continue Reading
In this two-part article, we give a detailed comparison of the wiki top dog MediaWiki and Confluence.
We already wrote a few words about MediaWiki and Confluence some years ago. At that time, we wrote about the main objections to MediaWiki.
That article is still worth reading and remains largely valid. Ultimately the key argument then was that the choice of tool did not depend only on features, but also on the concept behind the software. This is a timeless truth.
However, MediaWiki does not need to fear a direct feature comparison. Importantly, the enterprise distribution BlueSpice has already decided the feature question in my view. This can be seen on our newest internal feature-comparison table, published here and offered for free download:
- Feature Comparison BlueSpice and Confluence 2017.xlsx
- Feature Comparison BlueSpice and Confluence 2017.ods
This publication is a good chance to detail the differences and similarities of the two projects comprehensively and systematically. Continue Reading
I can hardly believe it: the current version of BlueSpice, BlueSpice 2, will be four years old this year. It feels like just a few months ago that we announced Version 2. Anyway, it is now time to start thinking about a new version and to continue writing the road map.
At Hallo Welt! we have spent the last months collecting ideas, and checking and weighting requirements.
At our yearly strategy meeting, Markus Glaser presented his technical plan. So now it is official that we will publish a new BlueSpice Version 3 in the first quarter of 2018. The road map for our new MediaWiki distribution contains essential innovations and improvements we have wanted for a long time. BlueSpice 3 will achieve a new level of stability and flexibility.
