About

Abilian SBE (Social Business Engine) is a platform for developing social business applications, and more specifically collaborative / enterprise 2.0 business applications, such as enterprise social networks (ESN).

It is based on the Abilian Core project which provide the basic services, on top of Flask and SQLAlchemy.

Abilian SBE adds the concept of communities, which are collaborative spaces with services such as lightweight document management, discussions, wikis, user timelines.

Abilian SBE is currently alpha software and evolving quickly. OTOH, it’s already used by several major customers in production, since mid 2013.
