TWiki Success Story of Disney

We've been through two rounds of using Twiki, last year it was used as a "development" wiki for an engineering team that was rearchitecting the Go.com portal. During this time we found TWiki to be a very effect means of posting and maintaining development specs and notes as well as pointers to resources. After a few weeks of use it was considered a must-have resource by the engineering team.

Since Go.com was shutdown I've transitioned to the Advanced Development Group, an R&D-ish group building new technology for Disney's Internet Group. We've had the TWiki up (under Win2k) for about two weeks now and there is a great amount of activity on the Twiki, in fact it has quickly become the central resource for ideas, notes, "how to"s, specs, and brainstorming. We also have a simple convention for publishing blogs on the wiki and its used daily to post interesting press stories and web links.

There have been lots of feature requests for the system, but at the urging of the VP here we are using it for a while and seeing if we really need to add anything. Those making feature requests have been pointed to twiki.org for now. wink

We're still using twiki at WDIG. It was moved to linux at least a year and a half ago. When I joined the company last year I didn't know that Eric's group had a twiki up already. I setup one of my own (another TWiki) and then ended up migrating my nodes over to the established wiki. As of today the site takes up 2.6gig on disk. I'd say it's been pretty heavily used.

WDIG's Starwave.com roots were very closed-software oriented, and I'm surprised at how well most of the company is accepting the wiki. There are still a lot of people who don't understand it, and a lot who reject it outright. They make the usual excuses. They'll come around... oh yes, they will...
