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.

Good enterprise content management (ECM) plays a pivotal role in an organization's ability to manage input and output of information.

KMWorld White Paper Series

***Coming in October 2018***
Best  Practices in Cognitive Computing 

A new era of cognitive computing is unfolding and its impact is already being felt across industries, from preventative maintenance at manufacturing plants and patient diagnosis at hospitals, to the rise of sophisticated chatbots ready to assist us across the connected world. The goal of cognitive computing is straightforward: to simulate human thought processes in a computerized model. However, building, refining and reaping business value from cognitive computing systems and applications is another story.

This KMWorld White Paper will educate its readers about the latest technology developments and success factors in cognitive computing today.
