Important trends in knowledge management— AI, natural language processing, machine learning, knowledge graphs, blockchain, and low- and no-code development—are shaping the capabilities of products and services for 2021 and beyond.

There are solutions that identify information from documents and data sources to help uncover new opportunities, customer service tools that speed the delivery of customer insights to enable faster responses, powerful search engines that put information at users’ fingertips, solutions that connect information trails from end to end, resources for uncovering hidden connections between entities—and so much more.
