What is Knowledge Management and Why Is It Important?

Apr 03, 2018   |  By Zach Wahl | President and CEO, Enterprise Knowledge

As I’ve often asserted, Knowledge Management struggles with its own identity. There are any number of definitions of KM, many of which put too much stress on the tacit knowledge side of the knowledge and information management spectrum, are overly academic, or are simply too abstract. At Enterprise Knowledge, we’ve adopted a concise definition of knowledge management:

Knowledge Management involves the people, process, culture, and enabling technologies necessary to Capture, Manage, Share, and Find information.

Knowledge Management is about mindset and people - not technology

Mar 13, 2018   |  By Rebecka Isaksson - Director, Knowledge Management Adoption - at Microsoft

This is an article that has been brewing at the back of my mind for a while. As I have engaged with more and more organisations, on the topic of “Knowledge Management Strategy”, it has been proven over and over again that most of us are making the same mistake: We tend to think that transforming our teams and our companies into a “Knowledge-centric organisation” is all about acquiring the latest collaboration tool, or (re-) defining our processes and scorecards. I can tell you with confidence that it is not.

Information Architecture and Big Data Analytics

Dec 13, 2017   |  By Dr. Anthony J. Rhem | A.J. Rhem & Associates

Information Architecture is an enabler for Big Data Analytics. You may be asking why I would say this, or how does IA enable Big Data Analytics? We need to remember that Big Data includes all data (i.e., Unstructured, Semi-structured, and Structured). The primary characteristics of Big Data (Volume, Velocity, and Variety) are a challenge to your existing architecture and how you will effectively, efficiently and economically process data to achieve operational efficiencies.
