KMS: Knowledge Management Systems


Knowledge management (KM) focuses on capturing knowledge created in an organization and making it available to those who need it to make decisions.

Knowledge Management System (KMS) refers to an information and communication technology system for managing knowledge in organizations for supporting creation, capture, storage and dissemination of information.

A KM system aims to enable employees to have ready access to the organization’s documented base of facts, sources of information, and solutions.

KMS can be used for a wide range of cooperative, collaborative and hierarchy communities, virtual organizations, societies and other virtual networks, to manage content, activities, interactions and workflows. With the support of KMS, users can extract and generate new knowledge, enhance, leverage and transfer knowledge in new outcomes providing new services using new formats and interfaces and different communication channels.
