Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware — originally and more commonly known as TikiWiki or simply Tiki — is a free open-source wiki-based content management system and online office suite. In addition to enabling websites and Web portals on the Internet and on intranets and extranets, Tiki contains a number of collaboration features allowing it to operate as a geospatial content management system (GeoCMS) or groupware web application. Tiki features an all-in-one design, as opposed to a core+extensions model followed by other CMSs. This allows for future-proof upgrades (since all features are released together), but has the drawback of an extremely large (more than 1,000,000 lines) code base.
Tiki has been hosted on SourceForge.net since its initial release (Release 0.9, named Spica) in October 2002, with primary development being performed by Luis Argerich (Argentina), Eduardo Polidor (Brazil), and Garland Foster (United States).
In 2009, Tiki adopted a six-month release cycle and announced the selection of a long-term support (LTS) version, and the Tiki Software Community Association was formed as the legal steward for Tiki. The Tiki Software Association is a not-for-profit entity established in Canada. Previously, the entire project was run entirely by volunteers.
In 2010, Tiki received Best of Open Source Software Applications Award (BOSSIE) from InfoWorld, in the Applications category. In 2011 Tiki was again named to CMS Report's Top 30 Web Applications.
In November 2012, Tiki was awarded the People's Choice Award for Best Free CMS by CMS Critic.
