The winners of the KM Promise and the KM Reality awards will be formally announced on November 17th at the 2010 KMWorld Conference at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C.
KM PROMISE AWARD
Many companies promise that their technology is the best knowledge management solution. One of the greatest challenges for organizations purchasing these technologies is to determine which of the companies will deliver on its promise. This award is given to the organization that is delivering the promise to its customers by providing innovative technology solutions for implementing and integrating knowledge management practices into their business processes. The award-winning organization demonstrates how it goes beyond simply delivering technology to working with clients to ensure that both the technology and knowledge processes are embedded into the work processes. In other words, it helps organizations realize positive business results.
Because our finalists are chosen from those who submitted nominations, some familiar KM-savvy companies might be missing from the list.
