An easy-to-use knowledge management solution





Goozzee project's goal is to offer an easy-to-use knowledge management solution, suitable for small teams or companies.

Unlike most existing knowledge management software, Goozzee's classification system isn't based on hierarchies or tags: it uses Topic Maps, which allow a much more advanced and flexible knowledge classification.

Goozzee is in fact a mix of the features of three kinds of applications:

· Topic Maps authoring/browsing tools: Goozzee offers a very easy-to-use Topic Maps implementation, with topics, associations, occurrences (aka documents), roles, association types and scopes.

· Wikis: Goozzee is NOT a wiki. But it fills the same need: fast and easy documentation creation, and easy links between pages.

In Goozzee, each topic can be compared to a Wiki page, where you can type your documentation and share it immediately with other users; the Topic window offers a real WYSIWYG text editor, so you don't even have to fight with some wiki syntax, and linking your topics together - or creating new ones - is a matter of a couple of seconds, using contextual menus or even drag'n drop.

· Document Management Systems: Goozzee's Document Management functionnality is - and will remain - pretty simple. Any kind of document can be uploaded into the repository. Each document is assigned a scope and access rights, and can be linked to any number of topics. In the near future, a check-in/check-out system will also be added to prevent editing conflicts between users.

But Goozzee doesn't offer any workflow engine. And it probably never will.

How does it work ?

Unlike many Knowledge Management/Document Management systems, Goozzee isn't web-based, but client/server.

The repository is stored in a Mysql database. (In the future, support for other databases will be added.)

A client software must be installed on each user's machine. This software is written in C++, using the wxWidgets library, which allows easy ports to many operating systems. For now, only two operating systems are supported : Linux and Mac OSX. A Windows version should be available by the end of 2008.
