MMXi - Social Websites and Knowledge Management Networks

Diamax MMXi is a socially enabled website development and knowledge management platform for science academies and knowledge management networks that combines relational content management, expertise management, search, and social media. This web-based solution was engineered using Microsoft .net and SQL server and is designed to support enterprise integration and heavy customization.

Diamax MMXi supports a fundamental shift in KM and Web strategy because it allows users to identify and manage informal relationships between relevant information and people. We believe information only becomes knowledge when the right person can be identified quickly to help interpret it. Diamax MMXi makes it possible to socially enable any piece of content, allowing users to connect around relevant information informally and helping managers uncover relationships required to support more fluid and effective knowledge networks.
