INNOVATIONS IN KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT
Sub title: The impact of social media, semantic web and cloud computing
Editors: Gloria Phillips-Wren, Liana Razmerita and Lakhmi C. Jain
Publisher: Springer-Verlag, Germany.
Novel technologies including social media, semantic web and cloud computing have the potential to reinvent the management of knowledge and communication inside and outside the organisational borders. Recent innovations in knowledge management have been associated with emerging concepts such as enterprise 2.0, enterprise social software, knowledge management 2.0, corporate semantic web, harnessing the collective intelligence, and open innovation. These novel technologies along with the associated emerging concepts are recognized to be critical for creating competitive success in a global business environment. For example, social media can be exploited as a driver for innovation within and outside the company’s boundaries. An important question to be addressed in this book is: How companies may explore these new ways of managing knowledge, communicating and innovating in order to gain or maintain their competitive advantage?
For this book, we seek chapters from both academia and industry including case studies, novel architectures and conceptual models combined with their evaluations in a corporate context.
