plasma: the knowledge base: home

Plasma, ATG's own knowledge base environment, is a prime example of a Living Application. Plasma was intended to replace an internal website that was growing increasingly byzantine, to create a democratic toolset for everyone at ATG, to minimize communication overload in a mushrooming organization and to unify a set of information sub-systems.
Plasma embodies the attributes of a Living Application. It's networked. It remembers. It reflects use, user involvement and the presence of other people in the system. Plasma is also personalized to the level of each individual in the system.
