TWiki As A Regulatory Compliance Documentation Management System

Millions of dollars are being spent on documenting compliace with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. A google search turns up nearly 3/4 of a million hits.

However what's relevant to the TWiki Community is that there is the potential money to finance application development. See http://www.cfo.com/article.cfm/3011495, http://www.cfo.com/article.cfm/3010723, http://www.cfo.com/article.cfm/3010299, and http://www.cfo.com/article.cfm/3010383

Being in the middle of one of these, I'm very aware that just having a computer file system, heirarchy, links, is far from adequate. I long to have a Twiki ... only most people I work with would be baffled by it. There needs to be a portal and some kind of controlled content management system interface layer as well. TWiki would be great for the engine, but it needs "end-user skins" and the whole TooUglyForNonTechnicalUsers issue addressing.

See http://www.cfo.com/printable/chart.cfm/3036977 for a list of "the competitors". Note that among them is Documentum. At DocumentManagement there is mention of TWiki replacing Documentum. Having used Documentum for regualtory compliance documentation I can understand why!

So listen up all you TWiki consultants and programmers. There's a big opportunity.

_There is also probably a big follow-up to Sarbanes-Oxley in the form of Policy Management, but that's another issue.
