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.

Organizations have made investments in "small data" for years and many are achieving data governance, or at least understand the gap they need to fill. They know how to work with the relatively small number of technologies in play—including databases (standardized on SQL), ETL, DQ and BI—ideally all linked with modeling tools and/or a business glossary. These organizations are now embracing the promise of big data—a new frontier akin to the wild west or the gold rush, with programmers/data scientists let loose with a daily growing menagerie of languages and technologies outside the normal IT and governance structure. Sometimes this produces genuinely impressive-looking results and insights—especially those supporting marketing. But making decisions based on marketing insights can be low consequence compared to other potential analytical results . . . . Posted February 26, 2015

It is today widely recognized that the vast majority of information in any business is unstructured data, typically in text format such as reports, filled forms, emails, memos, log entries, transcripts, etc. Most of the time, this rich source of information remains untapped—sometimes because companies are not fully aware of its potential value, more often because of the tremendous effort it takes to sift and dig out information manually from such large volumes. Text mining provides a viable solution. By combining natural language processing, statistical and machine learning techniques, text mining can quickly extract useful information from large collections of documents . . . .

Let's start with the good news: Your big data problem is getting smaller every day.

The emergence of big data analysis has been described in many ways, from the ridiculous to the sublime. In some quarters, it's derided as the next buzzword, a vendor-driven fad that is designed to simply sell more software. Others consider it the defining shift in information management that leaps the chasm and brings data into the useful domain of business and government.

Me? I think it's a little of both . . . .

Logi Analytics releases new version Posted August 27, 2014

For nearly two decades, large enterprises have complained about how much information they have to store, manage and protect. As regulations regarding that information steadily grow in number and complexity, they complain louder. The stakes—penalties and reputational damage for mishandled information—get higher. But a solution always seems just out of reach.

Fifteen years ago, there were no CIOs. We had VPs of MIS (management information services). If you'd asked one of them whether the problems of data growth, complexity and security—what we now call information governance—would be solved by 2014, the answer likely would have been "yes." A good bet, but wrong. . . .

Organizations need a platform to manage all of their information, wherever it resides and whatever the format, in compliance with growing regulations, often in multiple jurisdictions and demanding business requirements. In recent years, information governance has gained significant attention as the way to manage these multiple requirements. However, new trends constantly emerge, requiring companies to update how an information governance program is deployed—from managing policies to enforcing those policies across the complex corporate infrastructure. . . .
