Knowledge Management System
Build an advanced digital workplace on SharePoint to collect knowledge and create value for your business
What is a Knowledge Management System?
Knowledge management systems refer to any IT system that captures, stores, manages and retrieves data, knowledge and information to effectively improve the way things are done within an organization. The knowledge management system not only helps people to share ideas, experiences and information effectively but ensures organizational efficiency by creating value, fostering innovation and making it easier for teams to collaborate and achieve goals.
SharePoint as a Knowledge Management System
SharePoint plays a very useful role in knowledge management. SharePoint works as a content management system and an information repository that is often used as a collaborative platform within organizations. Even though your company uses Microsoft SharePoint as an intranet or for correspondence management or document management, you may not be aware of how SharePoint can be an excellent knowledge management portal. The features in SharePoint help to enhance access to secure and reliable data, information and knowledge making it quick and easy for people in your organization to learn and solve problems rather than trying to rediscover knowledge from ground zero.
