"Viaden Media specialists use free MediaWiki software as a repository of knowledge collected during company activity. It can be considered a kind of Viaden Media Library where any specialists can find answers to any question. As a result Wikipedia saves our time, and it helps us to be well posted on the most recent events and react accordingly.
