WASABIBEANS - Web Application Services and Business Integration

Jonas Schulte


Albert Einstein, a German physicist borne in 1879, said: “Progress requires exchange of knowledge”. This sentence is more relevant than ever, since projects in economy and research become increasingly complex. Due to the information flood and the growing complexity scientists all over the world do research on knowledge management and organization. This article outlines the particular position of CSCW systems for knowledge organization, since involving people in the process of data structuring and organization is crucial to support (work) process and information retrieval. Furthermore, a framework will be presented to demonstrate some innovative concepts for collaborative knowledge organization and work. The focus is on presenting the powerful authentication and authorization infrastructure and means of flexible user-driven repository integration to build up complex knowledge networks.
