Publishing a knowledge Base Article with a wiki workflow

Last month, I shared a blogpost (How to enable active collaboration with your wiki) to share the benefits of using workflows together with wiki.

Recently, Roberto from Comalatech, the creators of Adhoc Workflows plugin for Confluence has also contributed a guest post too. In his post, he shared how people can use workflows to streamline the process of publishing Frequently Asked Questions into a knowledge base.

For details, check out Wiki Workflows: Publishing a Knowledge Base Article

Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year

We wish you a Prosperous and Happy Chinese New Year.

A piece of great news to start the year

Atlassian Confluence was chosen by Elearning! Magazine to be the “Best Social Learning Tool“.

Here’s what some of the voters said:

  • “It can be done from an IT enterprise system”
  • “It provides excellent integration with LMS”

As a side effect of collaboration within the enterprise, Confluence is a large knowledge-base that can be tapped upon to enable social learning and reuse of knowledge & experiences. The knowledge continues to grow and yet up-to-date because it is so easy to add and search knowledge in Confluence.

Congratulations to Atlassian for this deserving awards.

For more, please visit Elearning to read about Confluence and all the winners.

Sun Tech Days 2009

Last week, I attended Sun Tech Days 2009 which made its round in Singapore. For the past few years, I always made it a point to attend this event as it allows me to have a glimpse of the latest technology development and the roadmap ahead. More importantly, it enables me to see whether they can be matched with any of the business needs. And I would know what and where to search for more details.

I have written down my notes at our wiki:

One piece of good news is that Jira is bundled within Project Kenai as one of the issue trackers. Project Kenai is Sun’s initiative to provide a collaboration site for the open source community.

The Lightning Talk sessions which are newly introduced to this year’s agenda seemed to be a great idea. It allows end-users of Sun technologies to speak for a short period on how they utilized the technology and share tips and tricks. I do hope this will remain as a regular feature and I would be able to share my experience and knowledge on how to collaborate better with Confluence and Jira which are running on Java 🙂
