The Intranet of Everywhere - Solution Brief from Coveo

The Intranet of Everywhere - Solution Brief from Coveo | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
To capture maximum value from enterprise knowledge, organizations must empower teams with tools to swiftly find and engage content and experts relevant to their job and the task at hand. In an age marked by the “Commercialization of IT” and mobile workers, many organizations have found that letting workers utilize tools and applications they prefer promotes collaboration.

"... people love to talk about their work - how they solved a problem, something that they ran into, that they had a really great idea and it worked out etc. It's very natural for employees to share their achievements, problems and other areas of interests over informal coffee table discussions."

Gretchen DeSutter: 

"As firms strive for greater efficiency and delivering greater value to clients, knowledge management system can help firms by streamlining search.

Because of their skill set and experience, librarians are uniquely positioned to help firms get the most out of their knowledge management systems. According to the 2011 ALM Law Librarian "Survey, 57 percent are playing a more active role in KM than three years ago."

In the end, it’s all about placing the right information into the user’s hands at the right time and in the right format. Librarians know how to do that better than anyone, and those skills can make the difference in helping their firms realize the full benefits of knowledge management.

Stop by booth #922 at the AALL National Conference and see what’s new in knowledge management."

Knoco stories: Self-generated silos - it's worse than we thought. | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
Knowledge Management ideas and models from Nick Milton of Knoco - sometimes provocative, but always grounded in experience.

 

"... social media can fragment into small silos of discussion, and how the wisdom of the crowd can fragment into the self-reinforcement of the clique. I cited the fact that there were over one hundred Knowledge Management discussion groups on Linked-in as an example oif how discussion can fragment into silos.

It's worse than I thought.
According to a recent post by Ian Wooller, there are now,

26 Alumni groups32 Corporate groups20 Conference groups132 Networking groups16 Nonprofit groups196 Professional groups.

All purporting to cover Knowledge Management.

That's a total of 422 groups."
