Coming March 18, 2014 11:00 AM PT | 2:00 PM ET


Big Data comes from multiple sources, many of which have been ignored for some time. Big Data also implies the application of unstructured, or semi-structured, information. To derive valuable insight from this high volume and vast variety of data, you need next-generation analytics to make game-changing business decisions faster than ever before. This event will explore what the big deal really is about Big Data and how users are uncovering huge insights through the analysis of this data.

  • Bridging context and best practice
    Those who accept that the tool cannot "do the whole job" realize the KM manager's special challenge is to identify the dimensions of best practice that continue to lie beyond the tool's grasp. It is to discover and manage the bridge between the fully known procedures of IT operations and the skills necessary to deal with the ever-surprising uncertainty and ambiguity of real practice.

Quote of the Week
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted. — Thomas J. Watson

Key Considerations in Maximizing the Value of Cognitive Search

For users to succeed in a search, they need to find what they are looking for. That much is clear. The approaches reviewed in the above goals all speak to how this overarching goal can be met. But how can this goal be measured? Tracking and reporting on metrics associated with any search system is key to understanding the success of the system. You must be able to report on at least the major goals outlined above, and hopefully on a large range of other attributes to help manage the search system over time.

How Knowledge Management Can Improve Customer Experience
The importance of customer experience can't be overstated. It's where your customer touchpoints meet your operations. And it's getting more complex as the number of touchpoints, in our omnichannel world, increase. That's why the customer experience is the highest priority. Smarter content helps maximize the customer experience. When a customer contacts you, that's the BEST opportunity to convert him or her to a loyal customer.

The Future of Enterprise Content Management
Good enterprise content management (ECM) plays a pivotal role in an organization's ability to manage input and output of information. It can make the difference in whether the company understands its content value, or whether it's lost in the weeds. We will opt for the former, and find ways to help organizations reconstruct their ECM programs so that information does not go wasted.

Best Practices in Knowledge Management

KNOW THIS: KNOWLEDGE IS ELUSIVE

Many knowledge management gurus will tell you that knowledge cannot be "managed," in the typical sense. Data can be managed. Information can be managed. But "knowledge" is in some kind of fourth dimension, outside of the reach of control.

Maybe it's a semantic argument. But there are plenty of people out there who are active knowledge managers--some with business cards that say so!--and spend their days managing their organizations' knowledge just fine, thank you very much.

But there IS a point to the pundits' argument: Knowledge is not easy to put your finger on. It's an ethereal thing; it's not simply data, and it's not simply "what's in people's heads" either. It's both. So to conduct knowledge management requires a deep understanding of the business AND the workers who walk in and walk out of your buildings every day.

The next KMWorld White Paper--"Best Practices in Knowledge Management"--will try to unravel that knot.
