Chapter

Abstract

This chapter describes some extensions to and applications of the Semantic MediaWiki. It complements the discussion of the SMW in Chap. 3. Semantic enterprise wikis combine the strengths of traditional content management systems, databases, semantic knowledge management systems and collaborative Web 2.0 platforms. Section 12.1 presents SMW+, a product for developing semantic enterprise applications. The section describes a number of real-world applications that are realized with SMW+. These include content management, project management and semantic data integration. Section 12.2 presents MoKi, a semantic wiki for modeling enterprise processes and application domains. Example applications of MoKi include modeling tasks and topics for work-integrated learning, collaboratively building an ontology and modeling clinical protocols. The chapter illustrates the wealth of activities which semantic wikis support.
