This referata site is used as reference to test some of the capabilities of SMW without interfering with our production system. As our production system continues to grow as for now we maintain 150,354 property values for a total of 332 different properties.
The current production system contains mostly literature research, literature references, some biotechnology data sets, project and task management. At the current stage only a minimum of data is been converted from our current system, as our research effort is to identify how and where SMW can help to ease storage and retrieval of information in combination with a wiki-based content system.
Reliability and accessibility are our foremost interest in SMW as we have seen early that even with the most sophisticated directory system maintaining content does not guarantee that in a given time content search will be successful while at the same time search cost will exponentially raise with the amount of data stored.
