Professional Knowledge Management is imperative for the success of enterprises. A decisive factor for the success of KM-projects is the co-ordination of elements such as corporate culture, enterprise organisation, human resource management and information and communication technology. The adequate alignment and balancing of these factors is currently little understood - especially the role of IT, which is often regarded only as an implementation tool, though it can be a driver by making new KM-solutions possible.
The conference gathers representatives of practical and research fields in order to discuss experiences, professional applications and visions through presentations, workshops, tutorials and an accompanying industry-exhibition. The main focus of the conference is put on the realization of KM-strategies with the aid of innovative IT-solutions, such as the intelligent access to organizational memories, or the integration of business processes and KM. Also of interest are integral attempts of KM, dealing with questions of integration of people, organisations and IT.
