Many organizations began to reexamine and rearrange their business strategies, processes, information technologies, and organizational structures from a knowledge perspective. Adoption and assimilation of the knowledge management paradigm requires the design and establishment of structures, processes, and technologies along with organizational knowledge resources. The knowledge differs from the data and information by origin. Many experiences about preexisting methods for information system planning are still usable for knowledge management planning. One of the well known of them is enterprise architecture and specially Zachman framework. This paper is about customization of Zachman framework for defining knowledge management architecture in an enterprise.
