A Big Data Architecture for Search

Big data has the potential to transform the way we all do business. The gradual merging of enterprise search into the big data world is not a one-way street. For sure, the technologies, skills and expertise, built up over two decades by folks in the enterprise search space, are critical to the effective use of unstructured content in big data applications. Various recent acquisitions testify to this. As a company, we have resisted the temptation to simply slap on a big data label, and follow fashion.

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. If you have a way to address it, please contact:
