The focus is on organizations that want to repurpose Wikimedia content in other contexts, providing data services at a large scale, so that they are faster and more comprehensive, reliable, and secure. Wikimedia Enterprise aims to improve the user experience of Wikimedia's readers beyond our own websites; increase the reach and discoverability of the content; and improve awareness and ease of attribution and verifiability by the organizations that reuse Wikimedia project data the most—through self-funding services.


There is a very high barrier to entry for using Wikimedia data, outside of the common use cases of reading or editing. This is because the content is hard for machines to segment and understand, which in turn affects how far Wikimedia project data reaches beyond our own ecosystem, and the scale of impact it can have.

In the Movement Strategy recommendations to increase the sustainability of our movement and improve user experience there are the recommendations to, respectively: "Explore new opportunities for both revenue generation and free knowledge dissemination through partnerships and earned income—for example...Building enterprise-level APIs," and "Make the Wikimedia API suite more comprehensive, reliable, secure and fast, in partnership with large scale users.... and improve awareness of and ease of attribution and verifiability for content reusers."

It is well known that a few massive companies use our projects' data. Those companies recognize that without the Wikimedia projects, they would not be able to provide as rich or reliable an experience to their own users. There has long been a feeling among community members that these companies should do more to reinvest in the Wikimedia communities for the benefits they gain from the content and resources they use.

This led to the idea of developing a new approach that is more sustainable in the long term and provides a much clearer relationship between Wikimedia and enterprise users. Most financial benefit for Wikimedia would likely only come from a very small handful of heavy for-profit users, and would feed back into the Wikimedia movement.

As this idea developed, it became clear there is a responsibility to democratize our data for organizations that do not possess the resources of these largest users, to ensure we are leveling the playing field and helping to foster a healthy internet without reinforcing monopolies. The benefits of such a service shouldn't just be for startups or alternatives to the internet giants, but also for universities and university researchers; archives and archivists; along with the wider Wikimedia movement.

ภาพรวม

Wikipedia Enterprise มุ่งความสนใจไปที่ธุรกิจซึ่งนำเนื้อหาของเราไปใช้ซ้ำในขนาดใหญ่ ไม่ว่าจะเป็นการนำไปผสมผสานกับ "Knowledge graph", การค้นหา, ผู้ช่วยคำสั่งเสียง, แผนที่, ข่าว, Community tools, แอปพลิเคชันบุคคลที่สาม และงานวิจัย การเสริมฐานข้อมูลของวิกิมีเดียด้วยการจัดโครงสร้างเนื้อหาที่ไร้โครงสร้างจะทำให้ผู้ที่นำเนื้อหาไปใช้ซ้ำสามารถตอบสนองต่อความต้องการของตนได้ และในขณะเดียวกันก็จัดเตรียมเราต่อการสร้างสรรค์อุปกรณ์และบริการใหม่ ๆ ในอนาคตที่ทุกคนสามารถเข้าถึงได้ ผู้ที่นำเนื้อหาของเราไปใช้ซ้ำกำลังมองหาส่วนประกอบสำคัญสามอย่าง

  • ความถี่: การเก็บภาพสถานะปัจจุบันของโครงการวิกิมีเดียเป็นประจำ
  • ความเชื่อถือได้: โครงสร้างพื้นฐานที่พึ่งพาและเข้าถึงได้
  • คุณภาพ: “การปรับปรุงใหม่ครั้งสุดท้ายที่ดีที่สุด”

Emphasizing a self-funding set of specific use cases allows the Wikimedia API team to focus on volunteers, teams, and organizations looking to access (and, most importantly, interact with) our data sets. This includes the majority of community editing tools, which will be out of scope for this service. For more information on improvements to the existing Wikimedia APIs see the service page on the "API Gateway" initiative.

Program Goals:

  • Content: Make more of our movement's content available in consistent machine-readable formats, freely available for all researchers and re-users.
  • Resource-load: Reduce the need for high-intensity site-scraping by the highest-frequency and highest-volume reusers, which currently target our production servers.
  • Fundraising: Provide a clearer and more consistent way for the largest re-users to reinvest derived benefits back to the movement, instead of making occasional altruistic donations that vary in size.

Following are the introduction paragraphs for a much more detailed Community essay.

The full essay covers the following topics

เสรีภาพและโดยไม่เสียค่าใช้จ่ายคือสองนัยของคำว่า “เสรี” ซึ่งพบได้ทั่วไปอย่างเสรีภาพในการพูด แต่ยังหมายถึงฟรีแบบไม่ต้องเสียเงินอีกด้วย

โครงการวิกิมีเดียจะเป็นโครงการในนัยอันหมายถึงเสรีภาพ อย่างที่เป็นตลอดมา และจะเป็นอย่างนั้นตลอดไป ซึ่งเป็นหลักสำคัญแห่งวัฒนธรรมการทำงานเสรี แปลได้ว่าไม่ว่าผู้ใดก็สามารถใช้วิกิมีเดียได้อย่างไร้ข้อจำกัด รวมถึงการใช้งานในเชิงพานิชย์ ในฐานะของการเป็นขบวนการ เราต้องยอมรับในจุดนี้ นั่นคือเหตุผลว่าเพราะเหตุใดเราจึงไม่สามารถรับงานซึ่งมีสัญญาอนุญาตแบบ "ไม่ใช้เพื่อการค้า" มาใช้งานในโครงการได้ เนื่องจากสัญญาอนุญาตเช่นนี้จะจำกัดการนำเนื้อหาไปใช้ใหม่ และด้วยเหตุนี้เราจึงถือได้ว่าการใช้ซ้ำในเชิงพาณิชย์เป็นอีกวิธีการหนึ่งที่สำคัญในการกระจายความรู้ไปยังผู้เยี่ยมชม

ความเท่าเทียมจากการเข้าถึงได้ไม่ว่าจะโดยผู้ใด เป็นอีกหนึ่งนัยของคำว่าเสรี โครงการวิกิมีเดียจะดำรงความ "ไม่เสียค่าใช้จ่าย" ความสามารถในการเข้าถึงองค์ความรู้จากทั่วทั้งโครงการวิกิมีเดียนั้นนับว่าเป็นแก่นหลักแห่งพันธกิจของมูลนิธิและขบวนการ เราให้การเข้าถึงไม่เพียงเฉพาะผู้เข้าชมที่เป็นบุคคล แต่ยังต้อนรับเครื่องจักรโปรแกรมอื่นเพื่อนำเนื้อหาไปใช้ตามวัตถุประสงค์ที่ต้องการในสภาพแวดล้อมอื่นด้วย คลังข้อมูลเนื้อหาทั้งหมดของวิกิมีเดียจะยังคงพร้อมสำหรับการนำไปใช้งานต่อในหลายรูปแบบ (ซึ่งรวมถึงแต่ไม่จำกัดเพียงดัมป์ฐานข้อมูล เอพีไอ หรือการแยก) โดยไม่เสียค่าใช้จ่ายอย่างที่เป็นมา และจะเป็นเช่นนั้นตลอดไป

ดังผลลัพธ์ เนื้อหาของเรามักถูกนำไปใช้ซ้ำโดยองค์กรที่แสวงหาผลกำไรซึ่งใช้งานเพื่อรองรับแบบแผนการดำเนินธุรกิจ และกอบโกยรายได้จากการทำเช่นนี้ อันนอกเหนือจากการบริจาคขององค์กรโดยสมัครใจให้กับมูลนิธิวิกิมีเดีย ขบวนการไม่เคยได้รับผลประโยชน์จากรายได้ขององค์กรจากการให้บริการโดยขบวนการคืนแต่อย่างใด ในการรับทราบถึงปัญหานี้ ภายใต้หัวเรื่องแห่ง "ยกระดับความยั่งยืนของขบวนการ" หนึ่งในกระบวนการของยุทธศาสตร์ขบวนการซึ่งมีความว่าให้มูลนิธิวิกิมีเดียค้นหาหนทาง เช่น "เอพีไอในระดับเอ็นเตอร์ไพรส์สำหรับการใช้งานเชิงพาณิชย์ของผู้ใช้ซ้ำโดยองค์กรที่แสวงหาผลกำไร กำกับดูแลเพื่อหลีกเลี่ยงการพึ่งพารายได้หรืออิทธิพลภายนอกอื่น ๆ ที่ไม่เหมาะสมในการออกแบบและพัฒนาผลิตภัณฑ์" นอกจากนี้ ภายใต้หัวข้อ "ปรับปรุงประสบการณ์ของผู้ใช้" ได้ที่คำแนะนำเพิ่มที่ระบุไว้ว่า "ทำให้เอพีไอวิกิมีเดียมีความครอบคลุม รวดเร็ว และปลอดภัยมากขึ้น ในการสร้างพันธมิตรกับผู้ใช้ระดับใหญ่ซึ่งยังคงอยู่ในพันธกิจและแนวคิดหลักของเรา เพื่อปรับปรุงประสบการณ์ของทั้งผู้ใช้โดยตรงและโดยอ้อม เพิ่มขีดจำกัดของการค้นพบเนื้อหาของเราและศักยภาพในการเพิ่มเติมความรู้จากตนเองของผู้ใช้กลับเข้ามา และปรับปรุงความตระหนักรู้ในและความง่ายของการอ้างอิงแหล่งที่มาและการพิสูจน์ยืนยันได้นำหรับผู้นำเนื้อหาไปใช้ซ้ำ"

The Enterprise project team is developing a new resource aimed at for-profit content reusers, who have product, service, and system requirements that go beyond what we freely provide. Use of this offering will not be required for for-profit content reuse; companies can continue to use the current tools available at no cost. All Enterprise API revenue will unequivocally be used to support the Wikimedia mission—for example, to fund Wikimedia programs or help grow the Wikimedia Endowment.

This project represents a new kind of activity at the Foundation. The project is at a very early stage that should be considered a learning period. We will have successes, we will make mistakes, and we will need to adapt our strategies. The team is committed to listening, engaging, and where possible, integrating the feedback we get on our work. This document is organic and is reflective of the team's current thinking; we are attempting to document as much work as possible in the open. Up until now, our work has been shaped by a series of initial interviews with community members, Wikimedia Foundation Board and staff, researchers, and reusers.

...continue to read the rest of the Community essay. See also the FAQ and Principles.

Given the nature of the service, primary decision making for it will rest with the Wikimedia Foundation. We are seeking community input, in particular from the technical community and those who have been involved in the strategy process, throughout the lifetime of the service. Technical feedback has been gathered from colleagues at the Wikimedia Foundation, industry and research partners, technical partners across the movement, and with the broader technical communities via Phabricator. Input into the funding development side of the service will follow a similar pattern. We will continue gathering input via research interviews and focus groups, as well feedback here on Meta as per our principles.

Technical

For full information about the product work, seethe documentation homepage on MediaWiki.org and the API documentation subpage.
Over time, the "product" being offered will grow and improve. We are still defining the exact nomenclature for API endpoints and documentation, but these are the main products that our team is currently building. This information is accurate as of Version 1.0.

Structured Content API

High-volume reusers that use an infrastructure reliant on the EventStream platform depend on services like RESTBase to pull HTML from page titles and current revisions to update their products. High-volume reusers have requested a reliable means to gather this data, as well as structures other than HTML when incorporating our content into their KGs and products.

Wikimedia Enterprise Structured Content API, at release, will contain:

  • A commercial schema
  • SLA

Firehose API

High-volume reusers currently rely heavily on the changes that are pushed from our community to update their products in real time, using EventStream APIs to access such changes. High-volume reusers are interested in a service that will allow them to filter the changes they receive to limit their processing, guarantee stable HTTP connections to ensure no data loss, and supply a more useful schema to limit the number of api calls they need to make per event.

Enterprise Firehose API, at release, will contain:

  • Filtering of events by Project or Revision Namespace
  • Guaranteed connections
  • Commercially useful schema similar* to those that we are building in our Structured Content API and Bulk API
  • SLA

*We are still in the process of mapping out the technical specifications to determine the limitations of schema in event platforms and will post here when we have finalized our design.

Bulk API

For high volume reusers that currently rely on the Wikimedia Dumps to access our information, we have created a solution to ingest Wikimedia content in near real time without excessive API calls (Structured Content API) or maintaining hooks into our infrastructure (Firehose).

Enterprise Bulk API, at release, will contain:

  • 24-hour JSON*, Wikitext, or HTML compressed dumps of "text-based" Wikimedia projects
  • A hourly update file with revision changes of "text-based" Wikimedia projects
  • SLA

*JSON dumps will contain the same schema per page as the Structured Content API.

Access

To obtain access to the Enterprise API datasets, there are three methods: *Paid **Realtime API (Batch and Streaming) Through the dedicated Enterprise API product website at https://enterprise.wikimedia.com/ **Creating an account via the project's website also includes a no-cost trial period of access. Wikimedians who have a mission-relevant use-case for continued access to the official service that cannot be fulfilled via existing methods, or those listed below, can request continued no-cost access. *Free **Snapshot API An update of the Enterprise API data is provided for all every two weeks at https://dumps.wikimedia.org/other/enterprise_html/ **Snapshot API + Realtime (Batch) Via Wikitech:Portal:Data Services, available to anyone with a Wikimedia cloud services account.

Team
