How industry analysts can participate in the GovITwikii

From GovITwiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Industry analysts can use the GovITwiki to highlight their research and trends analysis. they can share as much information about their programs and research products as they'd like, including contact details. (Only if desired).

Analysts are experts with a narrow focus. We do ask that participants limit themselves to government information technology solutions. This wiki is not an appropriate form for off-topic subjects.

Don't be afraid to promote yourself as an expert in your slice of the IT world. Use the Wiki to discuss what you study, and even as a tool to help collect data and information. Help others learn more about what you analyze and how they can use your work to solve their IT challenges. Encourage others to contact you via your "my talk" page.


How to Get Started

  1. Choose a user name and register here. In order to keep our content of the highest quality, you will need to verify your email address to edit pages. This process is automated. We don't keep the email addresses nor collect any personally identifiable information. After you create your user name, feel free to add details and a brief description on your personal user page (Just click on your name at the top of the page). How much you share here is totally up to you.
  2. Search for your own name or the name of your research company/organization using our search box. The results will show you if and where the wiki mentions these words. The results page also gives you a chance to click on the search name and create a new page by that name. Click through and create your new page!
  3. On your new page you will see a text editing box. It starts with a WYSIWYG editor. But you cal click the Wikitext button to use a straight text editor instead. Our Editing Cheatsheet page tells you how to use both editors.
  4. Once you have created your page, look for places around GovITwiki where you can link to the page.
  5. On the front page, we have links to Hot Topics and links to Technology Areas. Drill down to find an appropriate category for your research. (You may need to create sub-level pages if your specific topic area isn't listed.)

That's it! thanks for participating. Please stay involved by creating other content too.

  • Look for links shown in red. These areas need more information. If you are familiar with one of these areas, feel free to click through and add this information, with documentation. You can also find things that you can write about on the Wanted Pages article.
  • Use the search box to search for a specific subject area related to government information technologies or specific agency IT projects.
