Impacting the Future: New Models & Tech for Knowledge Sharing

We understand this is a difficult time for everyone due to the current health crisis and that you have many other things on your mind, however, our team is still working hard to provide the best ever events in November: KMWorld 2021 & its co-located events Taxonomy Boot Camp, Enterprise Search & Discovery, and Text Analytics Forum.

If you find you have a few minutes to think of messages, experiences, and expertise that you want to share, please do consider sending us a proposal to speak. We understand that you might not know what your organization has planned regarding travel in the fall, so we are happy to have a conditional response to participation now. We plan to confirm speakers in June as we will hopefully all have a better view of the future at that point. We appreciate your flexibility and look forward to receiving your proposal.

The past year has accelerated digital transformation of most organizations, provided more remote working tools, and illustrated just how important knowledge sharing is to those who do not work side by side. New innovative and collaborative technologies have been tested and improved to support new models and processes while people have found new ways to socialize and build relationships – all important developments for strong knowledge sharing in the organization. So how will our organizations reset following the pandemic? What are the priorities? Join the conversation as we share experiences and lessons learned over the last year, set stretch goals for our knowledge sharing strategies in the future, find ways to deal with uncertainty and disruption, learn how to deal with vast amounts of data using intelligent assistants and machine learning, and create more agile and smart organizations. By improving knowledge flows and sharing among enterprise communities to speed decision making, innovation, and success, we can approach the future boldly and positively.

Organized and produced by Information Today, Inc., KMWorld and its co-located events Taxonomy Boot Camp, Enterprise Search & Discovery, and Text Analytics Forum, showcase organizations who have creative digital solutions for their future, are allowing experimental and risk-taking processes to inform their practices, have made solid progress in changing the culture of their enterprises, and know how to utilize AI and other technology in practical and useful ways to charge forward in their industries.

Be a speaker at KMWorld 2021 by sharing your experience and techniques for the 25th annual conference, “Impacting the Future: New Models & Tech for Knowledge Sharing” and illustrate knowledge sharing in action for exceptional innovation and bottom line success in any type of organization.
