Key Areas of Knowledge Management
Knowledge management (KM) is the process of capturing, distributing, and effectively using knowledge. Knowledge management is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, capturing, evaluating, retrieving, and sharing all of an enterprise’s information assets. These assets may include databases, documents, policies, procedures, and previously un-captured expertise and experience in individual workers (source).
Lengthy and expensive knowledge management implementations are obsoletely before they finally get to the user. Knowledge Management tools like Analyst Toolbox help users to identify documentation for knowledge structure(s), analyze and score all document repositories, and integrate classifier scores into existing metadata and search engines. The process delivers an interactive visual user interfaces for better search experience.

Problems faced with Knowledge Management (KM)
For example, you are looking for something, a brilliant idea that needs supporting research before you can present it, but it could be worded in a variety of ways and is buried among thousands of documents in your organization’s database.
Your current system has federated search but none of the categories are relevant to your project. Although you may know a few keywords, or tags, to help search for documents, you still end up reading through hundreds of irrelevant documents trying to locate that needle in the haystack. What if there was a more effective way to find what you are searching for?
