Is your organization limiting its knowledge? This question usually leads to discussions about an organization's view of big data. It's typically centered only on internal transaction data available in their customer relationship management (CRM), electronic resource planning (ERP) or other cloud-based enterprise applications.

Big data is a much-hyped subject. In fact, the term is rather misleading because it seems to relate only to the volume of data, while ignoring its heterogeneous nature. Accordingly, the general definition of "big data," as suggested by Gartner, also considers the complexity and variety of data, thus focusing on the relevance of highly heterogeneous and unstructured information and how it can be analyzed in various forms. In particular, apart from the growing network of machines and equipment, social interactions are a further source of big data. With the exchange of messages in a wide variety of formats, on various platforms, and through multiple channels, large amounts of data are generated that demand analysis and interpretation.

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.

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.

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.
