Wikis in Business

Most people think of wiki as the information site about a given topic. Did you know that many businesses are using them as a way to collaborate and save time and money? All users can edit and change the information they share which is faster than using emails and more efficient. A large group of people have the ability to add and/or change information in the document. Dresdner Kleinwort, the investment banking division of Dresdner Bank AG is using wiki as a way to collaborate. This has helped them to reduce emailing time by 75% and meeting times in half. More work can get done without having to co-ordinate schedules. This saves the company time and money. They can also have group projects finished quicker as editing and sharing is done in real time. This is great for global companies. If you aren't using wiki, then you should really look into it.


I haven't posted on here since March. I have been pretty busy with school and writing my other blogs. For my computer class this semester we have to write a blog. I already have a lot of experience with this, but I am using this blog instead of starting a new one. I really want to start writing on here again. I like sharing my writing and about school.

I did graduate in May 2012 with my AS Degree in General Studies. I am back at school to get work on my BA in General Studies. My son started middle school this year! So far so good. He loves it and has more freedom and responsibility. I am proud of how well he did during this transition. I also started selling It Works! I will post more about it and the 8 week challenge I am starting. I have already lost 25 pounds and only 35 more to go to get back to my lowest weight.

I am pretty upset as my domain expired and I didn't receive a notice from Blogger (Google)! Someone bought my domain! WHAT?!! So I will have to be a blogspot for now but not happy at all and plan to call them to complain. Oh well. I might just change it later to A Cajun Blogger instead since it's available. I need to blog more before I worry about it. Just wanted to update everyone on why I have been MIA. Here are three of my favorite websites.
