Abstract:

There is a whole world of MediaWiki extensions and skins intended for use by companies and organizations. These are sometimes collectively referred to as "Enterprise MediaWiki". They allow for a variety of interesting functionality, like form-based editing, and storage and querying of infobox data. Though they may never end up on Wikipedia, they are still an important part of the MediaWiki ecosystem (one, Replace Text, is even bundled with MediaWiki), and are used, in some cases, on thousands of wikis This talk will list some of the functionality available, and will show some of the real-life uses of it
