JW Marriott Washington, DC


New technologies, next generation information access, and novel approaches to search and discovery are on the agenda for 2015. We'll consider the role of information governance as it affects search and discovery. We'll investigate the intriguing challenges presented by mobile devices.

Leveraging internal data in light of cloud computing, outcome-based metrics, adaptive filtering, taxonomy and metadata tools, predictive analysis, open source, knowledge graphs, and mobile delivery raises people's expectations for search and discovery-- then add Big Data into the mix. Let's rethink how to handle search, databases, analysis, and decision-making.

The Future of Enterprise Content Management
Good content management splays a pivotal role in an organization's ability to manage input and output of information, and 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.
