KMWorld 2010 Conference and Exhibition
November 16-18, 2010 | Renaissance Hotel | Washington DC

The conference theme, KnowHow: The Knowledge-Driven Enterprise, puts an emphasis on "how to" achieve a knowledge-based, successful enterprise. We are seeking experienced knowledge, content, search, and intranet experts who can provide practical, hands-on information, case studies, and instruction that will maximize the value of the conference attendees’ technological investments. We want to share creative ideas for dealing with knowledge and intellect, talent and human capital, as well as content and other resources in open, diverse, and agile organizations.

KMWorld 2010 provides attendees with all the essential pieces of the information engine that powers the enterprise—including knowledge creation, sharing, finding, mining, reuse and more.

KMWorld 2010 uniquely blends opportunities to network with experts and peers while also providing concrete insights toward maximizing human capital and enterprise information resources.

Knowledge processes and practices drive decision-making and provide competitive advantage. Understanding the underlying technologies that support these processes and practices and adding "knowhow" of the tools, techniques, and solutions are key goals for KMWorld 2010.

KMWorld Key Themes:

  • Knowledge and content management
  • Creative enterprise 2.0 practices
  • Innovation strategies
  • Enterprise search strategies and tools
  • Records management
  • Compliance and e-discovery
  • Intranet strategies and solutions
  • Social networking and collaboration
  • Taxonomy and classification
  • Human capital and knowledge assets
  • Knowledge sharing processes and systems

Challenges, Rules, and Tips for E-Discovery
One of the most expensive, and information-intensive, processes in business today. And in 2016, it will only get worse. Every company will get sued. Get used to that. And the rules for discovering electronically created and stored information are only getting stricter. So go get some information on the rules and structures for providing the appropriate and necessary back-up for your litigation. Start here.

KMWorld White Paper Series

***Coming in February 2016***
Best Practices for E-Discovery

By now everyone is aware that electronically stored information (ESI) is at the crux of many civil litigations, and can represent the "smoking gun" when it comes down to a fight. The courts are becoming much more knowledgeable about the discovery of electronic records, and the rules that govern the process. But many organizations are either slow or unknowledgeable about how to protect themselves.

At the same time, that ESI can be of great benefit to many business processes. It should be protected, but not wasted. This tension between the legal officers, the IT department and business managers has caused great turmoil in most organizations.

And where there's turmoil, there's opportunity.

Be part of the next KMWorld White Paper, "Best Practices for E-Discovery," and tell the marketplace how YOU can solve this conflict. For details on including your article, please contact:

***Coming in February 2016***
Best Practices in Digital Asset & Video Management

The emergence of “rich media” and its inevitable impact on business is just beginning. But it’s real--early adopter companies are already taking cues from the media and entertainment industries and are finding the great potential for value locked within their marketing videos, PowerPoint presentations, and training courses.

Will the entire world come to rely on digital assets? Probably not. But where it matters, it matters a lot. And those are the people clamoring right now for the best solution to their digital asset management (DAM) challenges. They want to solve matters surrounding cloud storage, how assets are retrieved, how assets are shared and features for brand management.

This is the time to seek them out and tell your story.

Be part of the next KMWorld White Paper, "Best Practices in Digital & Video Management," and tell the marketplace how YOU can help. For details on including your article, please contact:
