IKMS2009 - 2nd Workshop on Integrated Knowledge Management Systems


Information systems supporting knowledge management (KM), in brief knowledge management systems (KMS), are subject of research and practical application since more than a decade. Nevertheless, analyses show that user acceptance and usage of KMS vary significantly in different settings, ranging from high utilization to complete rejection. Empirical findings suggest that integration is a key success factor for the adaptation and efficient usage of KMS. Integration in this context has several dimensions: Firstly, it means to arrange and connect the different technical functionalities of a KMS or its components to deliver a consistent and integrated user experience. In addition to this, the KMS should be integrated soundly into the application landscape of the respective organization. Secondly, it means to embed a KMS into the business processes as seamlessly as possible so that users perceive it as a helpful, daily used tool (instead of a separate, isolated system). Thirdly, in a networked economy integration means to connect KMS across organizational boundaries. The ideally integrated KMS offers a rich set of well orchestrated functionalities, is imperceptible as a separate system because it is fully embedded into daily work processes and is seamlessly connected within value network surrounding its host organization. The workshop aims to provide a forum to discuss issues and exchange experiences about the successful implementation of KMS, where integration is one important line of thought which can be complemented by other important success factors.
