Foundations and Portals: Building a Knowledge Management Infrastructure

In today’s aggressive marketplace, organisations are looking for ways to gain a competitive advantage. With offices and employees located across the country and around the world, organisations require access to internal and external information to support employee activities and improve business results. Enterprise Information Portals (EIP), which use data warehousing and business intelligence technologies through customised desktop environments, are the key enablers for creating new information to provide corporations with the information and experience to move ahead of the competition.

This presentation will explore:

  1. Managing and leveraging knowledge to improve organisational performance and generate value;
  2. Aligning Data Warehousing architecture, design and components to support knowledge management’s role in serving the different needs of senior management and knowledge workers.
  3. Leveraging Enterprise Information Portals (EIP) as chief method for organizing access to organisational and functional knowledge; and,
  4. Building knowledge repositories to serve and address the different needs of senior management and knowledge workers.
