Applied Knowledge Group: KM Solutions Built on SharePoint
Your organization’s knowledge assets are a critical resource, and ensuring the health of your knowledge information sharing capability is essential. AKG’s approach to building KM solutions on SharePoint includes a comprehensive strategy that goes beyond the technology to incorporate our unique user adoption strategy. We build solutions with the users, translating the way they work into SharePoint. We don’t just move existing processes into the new tool, but we help users examine them and look for ways to improve them using the functionality inherent in SharePoint.
All too often technologists deliver a technically sound SharePoint environment that loads in lots of features and doesn’t look any further than the technology. The solution is rolled out with a “Deploy and Pray” philosophy, and does not achieve the success it should. AKG takes a completely different approach to building the SharePoint environment and rolls it out in an agile style with the client. Client involvement in an iterative process is one of the critical components of our success.
Tools we have developed to help monitor the “health” of the implementation include our new SharePoint Sonar™ that allows our consultants to understand usage patterns across the environment in the appropriate context. Sonar helps organizations assess the strengths and weaknesses across the implementation. Armed with this information, we help our clients develop strategies to improve usage and provide additional support to work teams. The information from our Sonar allows us to more easily identify problems and issues that are affecting productivity and collaboration.
