This year, XWiki SAS will participate in the Information and Organizational Management Summit (or IOM Summit), the German event that corresponds to the French Enterprise 2.0 Summit, in which we have also been involved for several years.

The IOM Summit focuses on intranets, collaboration and knowledge management, providing a platform of discussion for project managers and experts. The event will include the presentation of projects, as well as testimonials from company leaders.

Doris Wippermann, from DS Produkte (one of our client) will meet us there and will be talking about how they use XWiki in their enterprise

The event will take place between the 23 and 25 September 2014 in Cologne (Germany).

See you there!

IOM Summit 2014 Recap

The XWiki SAS Team attended the 2014 edition of the IOM SUMMIT in Cologne, Germany.

This event was great, as it allowed us to find out more about the German digital workplace market and to meet people interested in collaboration & open source tools.

Keynotes from Jane McConnell (Strategy and governance adviser for digital workplaces, NetStrategy/JMC) and Dave Shepherd (Head of Frontline Help, Barclays UK Retail Bank) opened the conference with a status on the (R)Evolution of the digital workplace.

The conference continued with presentations by project leaders on how to define the digital workplace strategy and how to choose and successfully implement tools. Among them was Doris Wippermann from DS Produkte, who talked about their intranet project developed with XWiki.

The second day, Ludovic Dubost took part in the live demo session. 

This demo session featured several solutions, their key features, customization & administration capabilities. Ready to use applications, collaborative features and open source where amongst the topics mentioned by Ludovic during his intervention.

Of course, we also took some time to enjoy the city of Cologne, especially the Cologne Cathedral.

Enjoy them :-)

XWiki Onboarding Training 2014

In order to help the new XWiki team members integrate better and faster, we recently organised the first edition of the XWiki Onboarding Training

During 08 - 19.09.2014, the new XWikiers better discovered what life at XWiki is like and interacted with the senior members of the team. They attended introductory sessions regarding the XWiki company and product, presented both from the company perspective and the Open Source community point of view. One of the goals of the XWiki Onboarding training was to create an environment for knowledge sharing and for learning the XWiki essentials.

The training ended with a feedback session, followed by an informal event, where we celebrated with pizza and games in the office.

XWiki thanks all the participants for their active involvement and for making this program possible! And last but not least:

New XWikiers - Welcome to the XWiki Dream Team!
