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.

The Future of Bots and Digital Transformation – Is ChatGPT a Game Changer?

Digital assistants are taking a larger role in digital transformations. They can improve customer service, providing more convenient and efficient ways for customers to interact with the organization. They can also free up human customer service agents by providing quick and accurate responses to customer inquiries and automating routine tasks, which reduces call center volume. They are available 24/7 and can personalize recommendations and content by taking into consideration role, preferences, interests and behaviors. All of these contribute to improved productivity and efficiency. Right now, bots are only valuable in very narrow use cases and are unable to handle complex tasks. However, the field is rapidly changing and advances in algorithms are having a very significant impact.

[February 15] Demystifying Knowledge Graphs – Applications in Discovery, Compliance and Governance

A knowledge graph is a type of data representation that utilizes a network of interconnected nodes to represent real-world entities and the relationships between them. This makes it an ideal tool for data discovery, compliance, and governance tasks, as it allows users to easily navigate and understand complex data sets. In this webinar, we will demystify knowledge graphs and explore their various applications in data discovery, compliance, and governance. We will begin by discussing the basics of knowledge graphs and how they differ from other data representation methods. Next, we will delve into specific use cases for knowledge graphs in data discovery, such as for exploring and understanding large and complex datasets or for identifying hidden patterns and relationships in data. We will also discuss how knowledge graphs can be used in compliance and governance tasks, such as for tracking changes to data over time or for auditing data to ensure compliance with regulations. Throughout the webinar, we will provide practical examples and case studies to illustrate the benefits of using knowledge graphs in these contexts. Finally, we will cover best practices for implementing and maintaining a knowledge graph, including tips for choosing the right technology and data sources, and strategies for ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the data within the graph. Overall, this webinar will provide an executive level overview of knowledge graphs and their applications in data discovery, compliance, and governance, and will equip attendees with the tools and knowledge they need to successfully implement and utilize knowledge graphs in their own organizations. *Thanks to ChatGPT for help writing this abstract.

Innovation with Utility in Mind - What’s Ahead for 2023

It has been a year of advances in AI with new tools that create art, write essays, and have conversations that are often (but not always) startlingly eloquent.  It is that space of "not always" that keeps these tools from working out of the box to solve actual business problems without human intervention.
