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

Putting the Content Back in Enterprise Content Management

Enterprise content management systems have truly changed the way organizations work. The big players—EMC Documentum, IBM FileNet, Microsoft SharePoint and OpenText—have in many ways transformed day-to-day document-centric processes, helping to automate tedious manual tasks and increase business efficiency. Still, something is missing; we haven't quite achieved panacea... yet . . . .

The Future Of KM
Knowledge management has hit plenty of bumps in the road over the years. KM has been frequently the target of disbelievers and dubious bean-counters. Those days are gone. Thanks to recent advances in better analytics and less expensive start-up costs, KM is now back in favor of the ruling class, and adopted widely by the working class, too.

Where Are We With Search?
Search was once the golden god of information management. But in many ways, it's been consumed and adopted into content management and BI-type applications so that it has little to add except as a sideline. Is that true? Does enterprise search have a role? Now is your time to tell the world what enterprise search still means, and why it matters.

Coming December 01, 2015
One of the most expensive, and information-intensive, processes in business today. And in 2015, 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 January 2016***
Best Practices in BPM & Case Management

The Case for Case Management

By now we’ve all become familiar with BPM--business process management. It started with simple workflows for transactional processes, then graduated to a more intense management environment that addressed more complex business procedures. But it was always just that: procedure management. The daily in and out of doing the same thing over and over… just in a better way. Not a bad thing. Still works today.

But we've moved it up a notch. Where BPM was focused on repeatable transactions and processes, the emerging case management trend is intended to address all the unpredictable events that happen every day in business. As BPM "suites" grow to adapt to these elusive changes in the environment, a new category of products has emerged. We call it “Case and Business Process Management.”

Does that sound like your marketplace? It should, if you want to move forward into this next era of business automation. You can make your mark on this market by participating in the next KMWorld White Paper—"Best Practices in BPM and Case Management.”
