Interactive Knowledge Stack for small to medium CMS/KMS providers

Logo: IKS

Interactive Knowledge (IKS) is an integrating project whose target are the hundreds of SMEs in Europe providing technology platforms for content and knowledge management to thousands of end user organisations.

Downstream, hundred-thousands of corporate end users and millions of content consumers are affected by the quality of service provided through these platforms. The majority of these platforms is built under the "Linux/Apache/mySQL/php" paradigm known as the LAMP stack. More advanced CMS platforms are provided by firms with a software engineering background using frameworks such as .NET and JEE5. All of these frameworks lack the capability for semantic web enabled, intelligent content, and therefore lack the capacity for users to interact with the content at the user's knowledge level.

INTERACTIVE KNOWLEDGE invites all stakeholders to work towards bringing European CMS/KMS providers to the leading edge of innovation in knowledge technologies, for the benefit of all users.
