How to get rid of Confluence: Comparing Open Source Knowledgemanagent Systems

Atlassian, the proprietary Australian vendor and market leader of Knowledge Management recently has been massively raising prices and pushing their customers into their cloud. Apart from data protection and legal issues, many companies can not afford that loss of digital sovereignty. But there is alternatives, and excellent ones, completely open source.

Many vendors of free alternatives have been reporting a huge migration of former Atlassian customers to their products, and a large interest from customers in comparisons. This presentation is giving an overview on which systems to choose, what features they deliver and who benefits the most from which product.

The presentation will include but may not be limited to (in alphabethical order): BlueSpice, BookStack, DokuWiki, Foswiki, MediaWiki, OpenKM, Outline, PmWiki, Wiki.js and Xwiki.

I also intend to do a short "How to get started with knowledge management in your company" section. ("Agile & Recursive" KM)
