Knowledge Management



The conference is preceded by one day of free tutorials for participants who wish to learn state of the art of research relating to the topics of KMO and LTEC. The tutorials will be held on the 21st, August, 2017. The conference itself commences on the 22nd, August, 2017. Knowledge Management (KM) is facing a challenging time with the advance of big data and Internet of Things (IOT) as well as cognitive learning. It is important for knowledge management to take up the challenges to help companies reach their goals and weather the tough roads ahead. Given the rise of big data, Internet of Things (IOT), disruptive technology and current market demands, knowledge management research must be aware of the new challenges. Traditional KM approaches have failed to meet the challenges posed by Big Data, mobility, social media, and customer demands. There is a strong relationship between innovation, technology and knowledge management. ICTs have great influence on KM, and therefore any innovation in ICTs is directly linked to creativity in knowledge management. Collaboration is essential in an economy based on highly specialised knowledge. There is a need to focus on fostering collaboration between individuals, teams, divisions, and organisations. It is important that we develop the skills and culture that enable high-value collaboration. Implementing a whole new set of business processes is also required to unlock the full potential of collaboration for knowledge management.
