ERP5 KM leverages the acclaimed ERP5 framework to provide one of the most advanced and innovative Knowledge Management solutions. ERP5 KM is based on a proven architecture and model which can scale up to the largest organizations and meet the most demanding requirements.
Knowledge Management (KM) can be defined as "providing the right information to the right people at the right time". It is one of the most challenging management objectives in large organizations and communities. Successful Knowledge Management often leads to vast cost savings or to new sources of income.
ERP5 KM has been designed for organizations and communities with a large number of people or high amount of information. In such demanding environments, technologies such as Enteprise Wiki or Enteprise Content Management do not always perform well enough, either for technical reasons or management reasons.
Based on benchmarking of existing KM solutions in large organizations, ERP5 KM has been designed to solve common problems found in most KM systems implemented in the last decade:
ERP5 KM has been designed as a tool for management support rather than alternative to management. We believe that Knowledge Management can only succeed in an environment with well defined intentions in terms of business objectives and in terms of knowledge creation.
We therefore view ERP5 KM as a simple technical tool to support complex management processes. As a consequence, ERP5 KM focuses on providing several straightforward features to a large number of users rather than on showing off many fashionable features and gadgets to few technologically oriented users.
ERP5 KM is perfectly suited to implement collaborative KM approaches such as the Communities of Practice of Etienne Wenger or to implement a corporate move towards the Knowledge Creating Company as introduced by Nonaka and Takeuchi.
ERP5 KM has been deployed successfully by organizations in the following business fields:
ERP5 KM is based on state of the art ERP5 framework. It provides the following innovative technologies:
