MindTouch is the open source alternative for enterprise and web collaboration and serves more than 16 million users worldwide with MindTouch Collaborative Networks. The flagship product, MindTouch 2009, combines the speed, agility and ease of use of a wiki with the extensibility, scalability, security and integration of an enterprise portal. Customers, such as Mozilla, Microsoft, Intel, Intuit, The Washington Post, Harvard, Timberland, The US Army and The United Nations, are reporting double-digit percentage increases in productivity and orders of magnitude of return on investment from their MindTouch-powered Collaborative Networks.
The MindTouch platform is both technology and platform independent. It is commonly extended in PHP, Java, or .NET (using C#) and supports installations on all major Linux distributions as well as Microsoft Windows. Roughly 90% of the more than 500,000 active installations of MindTouch are running on Linux including SUSE Linux Enterprise - one of the fastest growing Linux distributions. This impressive install base and the large and rapidly growing developer community around MindTouch is due largely to its compatibility with Mono. The Mono project is an open source initiative sponsored by Novell, which develops Mono—the open source, cross-platform .NET application framework. The project provides all the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and server applications on Linux. MindTouch is convinced that technology and platform agnosticism is of paramount importance in today's software market and Mono delivers in this capacity.
Given the dramatic growth of MindTouch installations on SUSE Linux Enterprise, we view the SUSE Appliance Program as an exciting opportunity for MindTouch especially with the recent addition of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Mono Extension offering.
MindTouch Core is the free and open source version of the popular MindTouch collaboration platform. Download today, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server packages available.
