Social knowledge management (SKM), spawned by Web 2.0 and energized by the new economy, is changing the way we think about traditional knowledge management (KM). Like any new approach to age-old problems, it's sometimes hard to separate fact from fiction.Everyone can agree that at its core, a successful SKM strategy starts with a knowledge repository where content is managed and accessed, and that it's critical to enhance that experience through the "wisdom of the community..."

Today, more than ever, new technologies and the movements that go with them seem to become ubiquitous in a flash. Take social networking. It's difficult to remember a time when there wasn't at least one mention of MySpace, Facebook or Twitter either in the news, in a chat with friends or even at the dinner table. And whether you've just heard about it during water cooler conversation, or like so many other people you've begun encountering long-lost... Posted July 07, 2009

The seismic success of Facebook, Wikipedia, Twitter and other social computing tools sets the bar pretty high for social computing initiatives within the enterprise. Though viral in the consumer realm, social computing tools require careful handling—and sometimes a little push—to achieve the desired results in a business context. What businesses typically expect out of social computing tools are powerful new ways to discover expertise... Posted July 07, 2009

Social computing tools including blogs, podcasts, wikis, RSS feeds and tagging, as well as networking capabilities similar to those on Facebook and LinkedIn, are increasingly finding their way into the enterprise. Tools like these can help knowledge workers get work done more efficiently and cost effectively. They also make collaboration across different companies ("the extended enterprise") easier and much more efficient. Social collaboration technologies... Posted July 07, 2009

The world of work is changing. Disruptive forces are at play in business and are compelling organizations to rethink traditional content communication and the way we define an information worker. We must address these disruptive forces to stay competitive, deliver services, manage risk and costs and protect the corporate memory resident in employees and applications. A more social workplace and marketplace raises productivity even as resources become scarce... Posted July 07, 2009

"I love you ... You love me ... We're best friends like friends should be..."The Barney theme song haunted me for years. My kids—like most kids—were Barney robots, and parked in front of the tube every morning to see the purple dinosaur frolic meaningfully in his carefully diverse neighborhood. And every morning, at the 28:30 minute mark, my two kids would coming running into the kitchen screaming, "Mommy! Daddy! The song! The song!" And we would dutifully drop whatever we were doing and come to the TV to sing along with them... Posted July 07, 2009

The magnitude of stimulus funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, combined with mandated requirements for accountability and transparency, has posed significant challenges to organizations that are either distributing or receiving funds. The total amount authorized was $787 billion, not all of which has been distributed. Federal agencies must report on how much funding has been authorized, awarded and spent in each category. States are in the process of allocating the funds to various projects. ARRA requires that expenditures and progress must be tracked and presented on a public Web site.... Posted July 03, 2009

For a president whose campaign was buoyed by use of Web 2.0 technologies like YouTube, Twitter, FaceBook and blogging, it should come as no surprise that President Barack Obama has made upgrading the nation's old-fashioned healthcare IT infrastructure a priority... Posted July 03, 2009

On the most basic level, we need to take a step back and focus on the fundamental question: Why was the Department of Homeland Security created? It was not created merely to bring together different agencies under a single tent. It was created to enable these agencies to secure the homeland through joint, coordinated action. Our challenge is to realize that goal to the greatest extent possible. —Former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff to the Senate Subcommittee on Homeland Security, April 20, 2005...

Social networking software gives users the ability to create individual profiles that foster interaction among people based on their interests, expertise or work activities. First made available on consumer-oriented sites such as Facebook, social networking is beginning to find a solid niche in the business world... Posted June 01, 2009

How many times have you searched the Web and received a laundry list of 34,000 hits? Have you ever looked beyond the first page or two of search results? Probably not. Much like a search on the public Web, sifting through the vast amounts of unstructured data in your enterprise content management (ECM) system can be an overwhelming and fruitless process.
Most company data is unstructured, and much of it often resides in enterprise content management systems. If it is leveraged properly, this valuable information can help your company improve customer satisfaction, gain competitive advantage, make better decisions and improve the overall productivity of knowledge and other workers. But the sheer volume of data housed in these repositories can render the information useless if your company doesn't have the tools to not only access this information, but also to analyze and extract relevant information...

In general, text analysis refers to the process of extracting interesting and non-trivial information and knowledge from unstructured text. Text analysis differs from traditional search in that, whereas search requires a user to know what he or she is looking for, text analysis attempts to discover information in a pattern that is not known beforehand (through the use of advanced techniques such as pattern recognition, natural language processing, machine learning and so on). By focusing on patterns and characteristics, text analysis can produce better search results and deeper data analysis, thereby providing quick retrieval of information that otherwise would remain hidden.
Text analysis is particularly interesting in areas where users must discover new information, such as in criminal investigations, legal discovery and when performing due-diligence investigations. Such investigations require 100% recall; i.e., users cannot afford to miss any relevant information....

Scads of words have been written about "enterprise search," "knowledge management," "information access," etc. In fact, I am responsible for a scad or two myself.And, of course, it makes sense: When 90% of the information your company possesses is in the form of unstructured text files and email, plus more-or-less formal formats (contracts, PowerPoints, legal documents and marketing material, etc.), it's painfully obvious that tools to access that content will emerge as key components of the knowledge-worker toolset.
But what HASN'T been covered quite as well are the text-mining and analytic tools that exist to find content—and the many relationships between content objects—that are not yet part of the average, daily knowledge worker's regimen.The way it's often been put is this:SEARCH is useful when you know basically what it is you're looking for. A specific email... a contract for a specific deal...

Through their research and teaching activities, academic institutes are at the forefront of knowledge creation and dissemination. Nevertheless, they have not necessarily been early adopters of knowledge management solutions.

When it comes to data sharing by law enforcement agencies, the primary obstacles are not usually technological, but territorial. Agencies understandably want to retain authority over areas, both geographical and functional, for which they are held responsible. Still, at a time when resources are scarce and demands are many, more law enforcement organizations are participating in data sharing systems, and have reaped significant benefits...
