JotSpot Releases Intranet Blogging Application

    April 11, 2005

JotSpot, which sells an enterprise wiki application, has added a blogging utility to its product line.

According to a press release, the blogging application features all the usual blogging capabilities-permalinks, trackbacks. comments, categories, etc.-but is designed to integrate tightly with the company’s wiki software.

“For example, a wiki page with notes from a meeting could be easily added to a blog post-giving the workgroup the immediacy of a blog with the permanence and archival ability of a wiki.”

The blogging software accommodates single- or multiple-user blogs with various permission levels (for example, read-only blogs).

The introduction of the utility reflects growing interest in using blogs and wikis as knowledge tools inside organizations, according to Graham Spencer, JotSpot CTO and co-founder.

“The reality is that companies are increasingly using a combination of wikis and blogs to capture important corporate data, so tighter integration of these two technologies is to be expected.”
