MindTouch unveiled MindTouch Deki, a business wiki implemented as a virtual appliance. MindTouch Deki is a business software that installs quickly, giving different workgroups in organizations the ability to share information and collaborate with colleagues almost instantly and securely on their own network. MindTouch Deki is a complete pre-installed, pre-configured application and operating system that runs on any Windows or Linux machine. Scalable from small workgroups to large enterprises, it runs atop VMplayer, a free virtual appliance player from VMware. MindTouch Deki enables users to create, edit, share, search and store documents, emails, files and images securely behind a company’s firewall. With an interface that looks and works like a word processor, MindTouch Deki offers a WYSIWYG rich-text editing experience in a web browser. With the Outlook Connector, a user can work in MindTouch Deki and pull all the necessary emails in one place, convert them to wiki pages in one click and share the contents. Every wiki page in MindTouch Deki is stored in XML, which enables content to be integrated into existing web services, knowledge management, web publishing or any standards-based enterprise application. MindTouch Deki is free for the first five users and is designed for on-demand scalability; customers simply purchase more user licenses online when they are ready. The free license does not include software updates and fixes, support or certain advanced features such as Outlook Connector. A full license (for five users) starts at $995. http://www.mindtouch.com
