Design and implemenation of a task centric social content management application for endusers


Hybrid Wikis try to combine the high applicability of ordinary wikis with the approach of semantic rich but static enterprise architecture modellings. The main concepts of these hybrid wikis are on the one hand keeping the loose structure of ordinary wikis, which means pages with pure text editable by users with specified rights and on the other side the combination of various meta data. There are for example attributes, type tags, attribute suggestions, as well as attribute definitions with integrity constraints.

Generating knowledge is often a process with loose structure. Therefore, an extra category called knowledge-intensive processes was introduced to support knowledge work. These processes normally cannot be expressed by typical business process management systems because of their unpredictability and error-proneness. Recent researches worked out requirements and characteristics which are needed to provide a system supporting knowledge-intensive processes including the ability for modeling and abstracting.

The goal of this master’s thesis is to combine a Hybrid Wiki with aspects of a system supporting knowledge-intensive aspects. The focus is not to create an application for modeling purposes but to create an application, which helps to structure and document processes for knowledge work based on the idea of tasks combined with the characteristics of the Hybrid Wiki.
