Join the conversation of speakers and colleagues at KMWorld 2018 and share your experience and techniques for getting “Next Level Knowledge Sharing with Entrepreneurial Talent & Tools” to work in your organization for exceptional knowledge sharing, innovation, and success.

With the amazing range of entrepreneurs and technology in our world today, organizations are entering a new level of knowledge sharing. KMWorld 2018 looks at the impact of innovative techniques and tools in many different communities, including government, business, military, law, medical, non-profit and more. People are at the core of knowledge sharing; the key to high functioning organizations, along with all types of thinking, design, customer-focused service, complexity, and more. And supporting technologies – collaborative, cognitive computing, AI -- are evolving and enabling incredible strides in knowledge sharing, decision making, and satisfying customers. The theme of KMWorld 2018, our 22nd annual event, Next Level Knowledge Sharing with Entrepreneurial Talent & Tools, focuses on culture, people processes, different types of thinking and technologies supporting organizations as they excel in their industries. See how organizations are embracing new technologies and innovative practices by enabling their talented workforce, experimenting, taking risks and learning from failures.

KMWorld and its co-located events Taxonomy Boot Camp, Enterprise Search & Discovery, Text Analytics Forum, and the new Office 365 Symposium, showcase organizations who have creative digital solutions for their future, are allowing experimental and risk taking processes to inform their practices, have made solid progress in changing the culture of their enterprises, and know how to utilize technology in practical and useful ways to charge forward in their industries.
