Revolutionizing Knowledge Management with AI-Powered Search

A company’s institutional knowledge constitutes a competitive business advantage today. It’s no longer enough to collect and store information. A good knowledge management strategy now needs to consider how teams find, use, and build on the valuable knowledge your organization has painstakingly acquired over the years.

Today, uncovering knowledge and expertise at work starts with a simple search. But when your company has many systems that employees must trawl through, they waste time and miss valuable insights. This leads to increased frustration and hampers productivity.

Your employees deserve a better way to search for knowledge and expertise.

Check out this eBook, where you’ll learn:

  • How a strong knowledge management strategy can give your organization a competitive advantage.
  • How can you challenge the status quo and prioritize leveling up how your workforce surfaces relevant knowledge.
  • The role of AI-powered search in a winning knowledge management strategy and its proven benefits for large, complex organizations.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

A KMS is a system that organizes and manages information in a single location.

Knowledge management systems were first developed in the 1990s. When a generation of employees began to retire out of the workforce–and bring valuable methods and insights with them, companies began to realize the need to preserve organizational knowledge. As a result, they began to develop databases that collect valuable knowledge for both employees and customers.

Fast-forward 30 years, and we’re now in the “age of data.” 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are generated every day. That includes data generated by your organization, such as customer support interactions, customer analytics, documentation on processes, and more.

Some of this information will be more relevant to employees (such as analytics or onboarding documentation); other information may be more relevant to customers (such as simple FAQs, guidelines, tutorials, or resource downloads).

Either way, a KMS can help bring together this information in a way that helps organizations to surface new insights, increase efficiency, and deliver a better customer experience.

knowledge management strategy is a specific plan for how a company will manage information, data, and knowledge to improve productivity, foster innovation, and meet company objectives.

Building out a knowledge management strategy requires thorough scoping, the right technology, and top-down buy-in. The thirty-second summary of strategy development looks something like this:

  • Understand where your data silos are and how and through whom your information flows
  • Scope out the tools and investments needed to unify and enrich your data and implement all parts of your strategy
  • Educate stakeholders as to the benefits of a knowledge management strategy and ensure buy-in by aligning it directly with company goals
  • Build a training and incentive program for employees to ensure adoption

But you can’t run blind. To leverage your company’s store of knowledge to improve the bottom line, you must first be able to access it in all the places it lives and make sense of it. This is where intelligent search comes in.

1. Enhanced decision-making: Access to well-organized knowledge equips engineers with the insights to make informed decisions, leading to more effective problem-solving and creative solutions.

2. Continuous learning: A culture of sharing knowledge nurtures continuous learning, enabling engineers to stay current with industry trends and advancements.

3. Efficient problem solving: Lessons learned from past projects, documented challenges, and successful strategies provide invaluable guidance for tackling current and future issues.

A knowledge management system isn’t inherently useful. To be truly effective for helping customers (and employees), it must communicate high-value insights in a way that’s organized and transparent.

Here are a few keys for building effective knowledge management systems:

  • Use an enterprise search tool for surfacing key knowledge hiding within your data. Use that data to create documentation of key processes, strategies, and insights for solving problems. The enterprise search may even build a virtual global KMS by merging several data-sources into a single and consistent KM overview.
  • Listen to your customers. What do they need to know about your product to have a better experience? How can your employees become better at helping them?
  • Consider all types of knowledge. Some knowledge is explicit (i.e. description of product features), some knowledge is implicit (i.e. how to use a product feature), and some knowledge is tacit (i.e. how to combine strategies for a specific use case of your product).

The integration of AI into enterprise knowledge management processes offers numerous benefits that drive operational efficiency and competitive advantage:

  1. Enhanced Efficiency: AI automates time-consuming tasks like data entry, knowledge extraction, and information retrieval, freeing up employees’ time for more valuable activities. This leads to increased productivity and improved operational efficiency across the organization.
  2. Improved Decision-Making: AI-powered analytics provide organizations with data-driven insights and predictive models, enabling more informed and accurate decision-making. By leveraging historical data and real-time information, enterprises can identify patterns, trends, and potential risks, leading to better strategic planning and execution.
  3. Accelerated Innovation: AI-powered systems foster a culture of collaboration and innovation within organizations by facilitating knowledge sharing. Employees can tap into a wealth of knowledge and expertise, driving creativity, problem-solving, and the development of new ideas and solutions.
  4. Reduced Information Overload: The ability of AI to filter and deliver relevant information empowers employees to focus on critical knowledge and avoid information overload. This targeted delivery of knowledge ensures that employees have access to the right information at the right time, enabling them to make better-informed decisions.
  5. Scalability and Adaptability: AI-powered knowledge management systems can scale effortlessly to handle large volumes of data and adapt to evolving business needs. As the organization grows and knowledge expands, AI ensures that knowledge repositories remain up-to-date, easily accessible, and relevant.
