KMWorld 100 COMPANIES That Matter in Knowledge Management

KMWorld 100 COMPANIES That Matter in Knowledge Management | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"...at KMWorld, knowledge management is an attitude, an approach, not an application, and that’s what we’re celebrating with this list—companies that offer the tools to analyze, augment, enhance, manage and extend information assets to maximize potential for organizations of all sizes. Our judging panel consists of colleagues, analysts, theorists and practitioners. Everyone involved in the judging process has his or her prejudices, of course, but we set those aside, and have assembled what you see listed, 100 companies whose products and services best meet the needs of our readership.

Knowledge management can be a bit of an elusive term. We have always maintained—especially now in 2015—that knowledge management is the umbrella under which all other technical disciplines fall, including (but not limited to) business intelligence, collaboration, competitive intelligence, content management, customer/experience relationship management, enterprise search and discovery, big data management, business process management, adaptive case management, imaging, workflow, document management, cognitive computing and so on. And, as we’ve done in the past, we have recognized a number of consultancies and research firms for their contributions to the broader view of knowledge management.

Since we first published it a decade-and-a-half ago, our list has recognized organizations leading the way in the knowledge economy. These aren’t the only companies that matter, rather, the ones agreed upon by the judging panel for KMWorld readers. The criteria for inclusion on the list vary, but those listed have things in common. Each has either helped to create a market, redefine it, enhance or extend it. They all share a fundamental motivation to innovatively meet and anticipate the widely diverse needs of customers with robust (but sometimes single-point) solutions to meet evolving customer requirement challenges.

For us here at KMWorld, knowledge management is an attitude, an approach, not an application, and that's what we're celebrating with this list-companies that offer the tools to analyze, augment, enhance, manage and extend information assets to maximize potential for organizations of all sizes.

Does your Company know what it knows? How Knowledge Management can change your business, by Lori Weeks

Does your Company know what it knows? How Knowledge Management can change your business, by Lori Weeks | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"The term “knowledge management” (or KM) is a concept that surfaced about two decades ago, and it continues to evolve and develop as technology expands, the world flattens, and global companies are the norm. Nevertheless, a precise definition of KM remains elusive. Peter Drucker, the father of KM, defines the term as “the coordination and exploitation of organizational knowledge resources, in order to create benefit and competitive advantage.” If it sounds boring, keep reading—KM is actually a fascinating, rapidly evolving field."

Karen du Toit's insight:

A fairly basic article about KM, but a good reminder about the necessity of KM!
