Is there no end to the business tasks that a wiki can do?
So it's really no surprise that a quarter of U.S. businesses recently surveyed by IDC are already using wikis.
Not only that, but momentum appears to be building, with a Ferris Research analyst predicting that internal corporate wikis will be "mainstream" by 2010. David Ferris thinks that companies will attain particular value by building shared repositories of organizational information that he calls "internal wikipedias"-- filling them with, for instance, commonly used acronymns or other corporatespeak.
Indeed, their use could eclipse public wikis since, as IT Business Edge blogger Ken-Hardin points out, coworkers are fully vested in making the information that populates internal wikis accurate and useful.
