JumpBox for MindTouch Core Enterprise Collaboration
Ready to run Virtual Machine/Virtual Appliance for VMware, Parallels, VirtualBox and Amazon EC2 Cloud Computing
MindTouch Core is an enterprise-grade collaboration platform that makes it easy to collaborate on data that resides in disparate external systems. Unlike traditional wikis where the data is locked inside the wiki, MindTouch Core allows the user to reference data from other systems and embed it in the context of the page. It has a host of features which allow non-technical business users to solve many data interchange challenges on their own including:
Why a JumpBox?
The JumpBox provides the easiest way to get started with the Community Edition of MindTouch. The complexity of setting up the underlying technologies (Mono and PHP environments along with the MySQL database) is reduced to a trivial 2-minute JumpBox install experience. The JumpBox yields the fastest, most headache-free path for getting started with MindTouch with the ability to upgrade to the commercial editions at any time to provide additional functionality.
Features & Benefits
Expose data that's currently locked in walled data silos in your organization. Data is only useful insofar as its easy to access and share. Deki makes it possible to create dashboards that aggregate data across many disparate systems in the enterprise.
Extend your system with the various plugins for integration with various SaaS and on-site repositories. And because Deki is open source, you can even write hooks of your own to legacy systems and leverage the work of custom integrations previously performed by other developers.
Engage your employees by providing them self-service tools for solving data interchange problems. Turn the one-way street of data services in your organization into a participatory two-lane highway where users can produce workflows and data mash-ups of their own.
Elevate your communication and tap the hidden collective knowledge of your workforce. Sales people can see a comprehensive snapshot of leads and key accounts, researchers can build collages of living data that emit results, and developers can knit together systems and focus on the unique value of the applications rather than the plumbing that supports them.
What is a JumpBox?
