TOWARDS A VALUE-ORIENTED KMS RECOMMENDATION FOR SME

Ulrike Borchardt

Abstract

Knowledge management and Knowledge Management Systems have been around for many years. They can be considered well established in larger enterprises, yet which effect they do have on small and medium enterprises is still not fully clarified. By our own research we recognized, that especially with regard to Knowledge Management Systems a solid foundation for decision making in SME is missing. This stems mostly from the unclear value such a system can add to the enterprise. To address this this paper is to present our concept for a value-oriented framework for Knowledge Management Systems in small and medium enterprises to allow them to choose suiting Knowledge Management Systems according to their business objectives and the business value to be expected from the applied solution. The framework to be presented, accordingly consists of three dimensions: Knowledge services, business value of IT and their interrelations.
