One of the most valuable assets an organization possesses is its collective knowledge – the vast and diverse information residing across its IT infrastructure and in the minds of its people.And only organizations that make it easy for their team members and customers to access this collective knowledge – precisely when and how they need it – are able to meet their full potential.
Power does not reside in knowledge itself, but in those with access to knowledge.
