The Tiki Suite is especially suited to decentralized and knowledge-centric organizations and offers most (80%+) of the features all organizations need, such as: Email, Website & Blog, Shopping Cart, Intranet & Project Management, E-learning, Social Networking, Knowledge base & Customer Support, File sharing, Issue Tracker, Video-conferencing, LDAP, VPN, Gateway, Network, etc.You can install anywhere (home, office, laptop, data center, etc.)
Key components include:
- Server-side (which you can install in your home/office or in the cloud)
- ClearOS Server & Networking
- Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware
- Kolab / Roundcube mail / appointments
- Openfire XMPP + WebRTC videoconference
- Syncthing file sync & backup
- Options, depending on your use case
- Client-side (The devices used by your team)
|App||Windows||GNU/Linux||Mac||Android or CyanogenMod via F-Droid|
|Jitsi SIP / XMPP / IRC client||yes||yes||yes||yes|
|Thunderbird or SeaMonkey if you don't want to use Roundcube (Kolab)||yes||yes||yes||no, use K-9 Mail and DAVdroid for contacts / calendar or ActiveSync|
Background information: The typical installation of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware is on shared hosting, which makes it popular and accessible, however, it limits what features can be implemented. This has not stopped Tiki from becoming the FLOSS Web Application with the most built-in features and the FLOSS Web Application with the fastest release cycle. However, there are things you just can't do well in PHP/MySQL and there are things for which we judge more future proof to partner with another (preferably PHP) project (ex.: Piwik).
This will not work on shared hosting and will require VPS or dedicated server hosting. You have the choice of self-hosting or renting a server. For most small organizations, one server is sufficient. However, if you require Kaltura, you need one or more additional server. Setting up the mail on a different box makes sense as well.

ClearOS 5.2 is awesome but is a distro with components from 2007-2008, and we prefer to build Tiki Suite on version 6.x
