10 Questions You Must Ask Before Implementing a Wiki #8

Ask yourself and your team the following questions before you start to implement a wiki, and be truthful with the answers.

Think about the issue you are trying to solve, and then see how a wiki might be applied, but remember don’t just focus on the positive, think about the potential down sides too.

8. Where will the wiki be hosted?

The location and hosting of a wiki can be a contentious issue and it is one that needs addressing early. In large organizations the IT group may want to host it (or they may actively be against the idea), in certain circumstances it may be better hosted at a departmental or project team level (and trends seem to indicate that these sort of bottom-up wiki implementations are usually the most successful ones), or even by a third party wiki hosting company outside the firewall.
