KMWorld Conference 2017-KM strategies, insights and innovations

KMWorld 2017 offered conference sessions over three days on three tracks that focused on KM strategies, the digital workplace and collaboration. Several sessions looked at the impact of cognitive computing and AI on KM. The role of KM in enabling innovation was also a theme in several sessions. Developing a culture of learning, harnessing organizational knowledge and capturing lessons learned were discussed as ways of creating smarter organizations.

Project teams and KM—Part 3

Retail firms are relying on knowledge management solutions to help drive channel spending decisions for marketing campaigns as consumers get more of their content (and related advertising) from digital channels and to obtain critical information about inventory, pricing, sales and other details for reports and sales-boosting strategies.
