The core of agile software development according to Scrum is regularly releasing product increments to the customer. The software’s functions are gradually extended, but the customer receives a version of their software right after the first sprint. That’s why at the end of each sprint, a review meeting is held where the development team presents the new functions to the customer. In this article, we will explain why it makes sense for the customer to participate in the reviews and why they should test the software created for them intensively and at an early stage.
In our article, “Enterprise Wikis: Criteria and important topics in the evaluation of wiki software” we discussed the diverse and unique requirements an enterprise wiki needs to meet. Decisions about choosing the right wiki system cannot be made using generalizations, but rather only by taking into account the specific needs of the company.

Wikipedia is by far the best-known example of a wiki. This web lexicon is what most people immediately think of when they hear the word wiki. It’s not surprising, since the online encyclopedia is used by millions of people every day. However, Wikipedia is something completely different from a wiki that is used in a corporate intranet.
