Six important practices can propel organizations to the forefront of their industries by tapping into the huge business value in content. Analytics tools (such as Smartlogic's software suite, Semaphore) identify, classify, extract, integrate and surface the information contained in content, making it digestible, intelligible and valuable. This kind of "content intelligence" supports existing information management, enterprise search and business intelligence systems. . . . Posted September 24, 2013

The top CEO challenge—according to recent surveys including IBM's annual CEO survey—is responding to customers and marketplaces with greater relevance and immediacy. That's because lack of relevance and responsiveness carries huge economic consequences—missing opportunities, poor customer service, lower sales, customer-churn, sub-optimal products and services, costs associated with reinventing the wheel and more. . . .

In the very funny movie, "Groundhog Day," Bill Murray's character is forced to relive the same day over and over again—constantly repeating the same dialog, actions and events. More and more companies are finding themselves in a similar "endless cycle" these days. Employees who quit or retire with specialized expertise and knowledge take it with them. As a result, companies are forced to spend time and money training their remaining employees to re-solve the exact same problems over and over. . . . Posted September 24, 2013

While we may still be waiting for flying cars and calorie-free ice cream, the future may be closer than you think when it comes to knowledge management. Here are five progressive ideas you can implement now to start building the knowledgebase of the future: 1. A search engine that knows what you are thinking. One of the most frustrating aspects of using a knowledge management tool is finding the answer you're looking for. Precious seconds are wasted trying different search queries and navigating complex hierarchies. But what if you didn't have to search at all? One of the most important advances in customer service knowledge management is the incorporation of customer context. . . . Posted September 24, 2013

So every CIO is supposed to have a social strategy because social is taking over the universe. It's the preferred way people communicate at work or at the office.

OK, you get it. But what if I told you that, in fact, a social intranet will help you elevate your game and make savvy CIOs more valuable in their own companies? Or that a CIO who does a good job deploying a social intranet will likely solve other thorny enterprise IT problems? Five reasons why CIOs should embrace social intranets. . . .

As we all know, KM has been an uphill sell for a long time. Failed projects. Misdirected strategies. Lack of adoption. Expensive and ineffective technologies. These are the kinds of things that put a bad taste in the mouth of executives and investors.What KM really needed was a killer app—a no-brainer, value-creating, business-improving reason to adopt and support a knowledge-based strategy in the fast-moving and diverse organizations that are common today.We might have stumbled onto it. In shorthand, we call it "social business." More drawn out, it is the application of social technologies as they are applied to operational and mission-critical business functions. More on that later. . . . Posted September 24, 2013

Customers want answers to their questions and they want them fast. When a customer has a simple question, they don't want to search through pages and pages of content on a company's website to find their answer. Unfortunately this is generally the case on most company websites, creating an overall poor online customer experience. Using virtual agent software can help improve customer service by answering the customer's question without making them waste time searching through content. . . . Posted July 09, 2013

Cutting-edge technology empowers agents and customers with the information they need—on demand and in context. As a rule of thumb in customer service, any customer issue not resolved quickly will see its cost roughly triple. When you factor in research time, contact and context re-establishment time, time spent finding and bringing in experts to help, escalation time, time wasted on interruptions and more, you've got quite an inefficient, costly problem on your hands. . . .

Customer service has become an integral part of the added value chain. It contributes to turnover, profit and ROI, and improves customer satisfaction and loyalty. Good service sets companies apart from the competition and stimulates growth in fiercely competitive markets. But the demand for fast reaction times with the correct answers in an atmosphere of extremely short innovation cycles causes service staff to be challenged even more.

Furthermore, professional customer service relies on powerful IT systems. Traditional IT systems that primarily focus on management of service processes need to be complemented by innovative, intelligent knowledge management methods and tools. . . .

Nowhere in your organizations can information be transformed into useful and actionable knowledge more gracefully and effectively than in your customer care (customer service, customer experience... whatever you want to call it) departments. For there resides the intersection between what you know, and what your customers want to know. But nobody says it's easy, and it's only getting harder. The three-way collision of Web self-service and social networking smashing into a reduced IT workforce and budget has done a number of whammys on KM in customer service. . . . Posted July 09, 2013

Inside your company, valuable information is not being used. It's sitting in repositories where no one thinks to look, in the minds of experts no one thinks to ask, it's scattered in pieces across multiple systems and siloed organizations. Valuable content also sits outside your company—in social media, communities, etc.—created by your customers and industry experts, which is used and shared by other customers when they need answers.

Big data. Unstructured data. Semi-structured data. Data is all over the technology news, and for good reason. It is overwhelming organizations, requiring them to find new ways to operate, stay competitive, better serve their customers and bring new products to market faster.

Companies are finding themselves with piles of information within multiple channels, locked away in silos-different systems, different departments, different geographies and different data types, making it impossible to connect the dots and make sense of critical business information.

Hidden inside streams of structured and unstructured data across cloud, social and on-premise systems are information relationships that answer questions employees haven't even thought to ask, but need to be asking. . . .
