What is Wikibase?
Wikibase is the free and customizable knowledge base that drives Wikidata. It is well suited for setting up data archives that interoperate with the semantic web via open standards. Increasingly, it is gaining interest among GLAM institutions, research communities and open knowledge advocates. Learn more about Wikibase.
Why Wikibase hosting?
Wikibase is difficult to set up compared to a standard MediaWiki wiki. At present is also lacks regular stable releases, which makes upgrading extremely challenging and risky to anyone who is a not a developer already familiar with the software. We have been working with Wikibase since its inception and Professional Wiki is proud to provide the first professional Wikibase hosting service.
What is included in Professional Wikibase?
Professional Wikibase will get you a fully installed and configured Wikibase wiki. It also includes a set of extensions and tools, carefully curated based on our long-time expertise. Wikibase, MediaWiki and the underlying operating system are managed and upgraded by us, freeing up time and capacity in your IT department.
Professional Wikibase comes with the Blazegraph graph database, allowing you to run SPARQL queries against the data in your wiki. The Query Service UI allows for easy construction and visualization of such queries.
An Elasticsearch search server can be included to give you more powerful search options. The popular QuickStatements tool is also available as add-on, and can help you with imports and editing of Wikibase data.
