There is so much information that is transmitted within a company on a daily basis that there needs to be some type of system in place to manage all this information. Knowledge management also deals with the intellectual information that is found from a multitude of resources both on the Internet, using the virtual library, and in paper form, such as white papers. This knowledge base is important for companies so that they maintain a competitive edge over the competition. Once this knowledge has been collected it doesn't just sit there waiting for random usage, it's shared and distributed throughout the company so that is becomes useful to employees. Many times employees will ignore a piece of data by thinking that is has nothing to do their department or their job. This is where it's vital that a company analyze the knowledge that is incorporated into its folds though a system of knowledge management. Once this knowledge has been analyzed it is available for use by anyone with company access. Knowledge is also available to a company in the form of news articles, journals, relevant publications, and documentation. Many times this knowledge is crucial in the successful running of the company. Without many types of knowledge such as statistics, reports, white papers, and specific industry information many companies would lose out on a serious advantage that can push them over the top when it comes to their competition. Knowledge management is a great tool that any company can implement and that will increase their success and profit potential. There are many knowledge management tools that are available for companies to use. Knowledge management software will help a company to organize and collate the information that is relevant to the interests of the company. Once all this information is stored in one database it becomes a great tool for all employees to use.
