a global community
Knowledge without a doubt has led to the evolution of people as a species and the role it has played in global economies and societies, can not be disputed. KM has always played an important role in collecting,storing, analysing, mining and processing data into knowledge although this practice varied from one organisation to the other due to varying organisational cultures. In todays world where rapid advancement in technologies has led to a phenomenon known as big data, we now find ourselves being overwhelmed thus leading to the adoption of requirements and tools that comes with this new phenomenon. Big companies have now invested heavily in dealing with this large volumes of data for its not about the amount but its about what they do with it. So the big question is, is KM, which has led to some organisational innovations before going to be swallowed by this new phenomenon?.
