alphaWorks, the IBM emerging technologies portal, has launched today a new service: QEDWiki.

QEDWiki is “an environment that extends current wiki technology to enable rapid deployment, content aggregation, structured data, and powerful extensibility”.

QEDWiki can be used for a wide variety of Web applications, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Web content management for a typical collection of Wiki pages
  • traditional form processing for database-oriented CRUD applications
  • document-based collaboration
  • rich interactive applications that bind together disparate services
  • situational applications (or mash-ups)

Technology community is invited to actively collaborate and participate in the development and direction of this emerging technology, so give it a chance and try it now.

Although if you just want to see a demo, check this YouTube Video where David Barnes explains what is QEDWiki.
