Title: Wiki-Based Data and Information Integration (WikiDI2) System
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX08CA86P
Award Amount: $99,934.00


The proposed innovation is: A data and information integration (DI2) system built from the methods and tools used to create Wiki websites. Wiki (Hawaiian for "quick") is software that allows users to create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. The significance of the innovation is that a Wiki-based DI2 system will: (1) Produce a collaborative, interactive website designed for the unique needs of government and commercial spacecraft projects for capturing, disseminating, managing and linking data resources across multiple projects and among distributed teams, (2) Provide "out of the box" advanced DI2 capabilities needed by project management and technical personnel from day one, (3) Provide a low cost DI2 solution for small companies and teams needing alternatives to expensive, complicated and inflexible project management tools, (4) Be easy to install, use and maintain without requiring programming or webmaster skills. The proposed innovation merges the Wiki philosophy of fast, easy and rewarding online content creation with standard project management functions and capabilities for data and information integration within secure, user-authenticated environments. This facilitates critical elements of communication, interaction and data capture/synthesis that are often missing or underdeveloped in many traditional project management efforts. Phase 1 TRL will be 6.
