JotSpot Launches, Unveils Application Wiki

JotSpot, an “application wiki company”, announced the official formation of the company. JotSpot extends wiki technology into the realm of workgroup applications, aiming to make Web-based applications simpler to build, deploy and evolve. JotSpot will offer its application wiki as a hosted service and, the company will offer its product free for open source project use. Workgroups can start using the service in three ways: begin immediately using the full-featured commercial wiki, install pre-packaged wiki-applications from JotSpot’s application gallery or customize an individual wiki-application for a specific business need. The JotSpot application wiki is designed as a platform for lightweight workgroup collaborative applications that can be customized for very specific business needs and uses. The ultimate benefit of the JotSpot application wiki is that the design of a web application can constantly evolve based on user behavior and learning. Multiple people can collaborate on the design of a web application and the structure of the application can emerge as people continue to use it. The JotSpot application wiki offers the feature set of a standard document wiki: collaborative editing, version control, attachment capability and full-text search. In addition, JotSpot extends document-wiki functions by offering: Microsoft-Word style WYSIWYG editing, email integration (every page is an Inbox) and a database backend. The company has an invitation-only beta program. www.jotspot.com
