Back to Basics: Getting to the Next Level in Knowledge Management

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

Is your knowledge management system like a superhighway without adequate on-ramps? In other words, lots of great information but no way to access and leverage information in a useful and practical way?

Most information-driven organizations understand the importance of knowledge management (KM) for driving business insight and innovation.  And many have worked hard to put the KM systems their communities ask for in place.  Yet, even when all of the 'right boxes' seem to have been checked the results are, for some, below par.  In contrast, others manage to show results quickly, often with limited resources - salvaging programs that have gone "off the rails" or even failed to deliver anything at all.   Why is that? And, more important, how do they do it?

In our next Executive Roundtable we’ll explore what “doing it right” means and ways to achieve excellence without extravagant budgets. We’ll cover:

  • Why some information management programs continue to achieve suboptimal results
  • Why other programs achieve positive outcomes despite few resources and short timelines
  • How to overcome risks such as poor change management and ethical challenges
  • How to show quick wins using search, metadata, content, collaboration, intelligence pilots
  • How to define metrics and KPIs that matter, and move from documents to data
  • How to upgrade your expertise and transition to a new role when the program wraps up
  • Ways to select target processes, prioritize initiatives and make the business case
  • The best way to serve the diverse needs of multiple communities of practice
  • How to socialize your program and create organizational change

Join EIS and our panel of experts for an intriguing exchange of ideas for transforming KM into a knowledge ecosystem that is adaptable to the evolving nature of information - all by focusing on the fundamentals.

Knowledge Engineering, Knowledge Management and AI Assistants

AI assistants are a form of cognitive AI. They go by many different names. The different terms used to identify AI assistants are described below. The role of AI assistants is to support customers or employees as they carry out tasks. In some cases, for repeatable actions with unambiguous outcomes, a chatbot or AI assistant can fully automate interactions. In other cases, when the answer requires judgment and human expertise, the AI assistant can surface the necessary information to help the human solve a problem – whether for a customer self-service app or a customer service agent supporting an end user task. These virtual job assistants are designed to help customer support staff be more efficient, accomplishing the task more quickly and accurately with a consistent outcome.
