What is a Knowledge Management Solution?

Knowledge Management Solution is More Than Technology

Knowledge management solution is not a synonym for technology. While technology matters more than ever before, knowledge management solution is technology plus.

A complete solution includes the following components.


The technology is absolutely the first important component of any solution. For effective knowledge management, the knowledge management solution should have a platform that supports the building of knowledge management in the enterprise.

The technology building blocks of a knowledge management solution include Machine Learning (ML) and AI reasoning, omnichannel content management, profiled access to content, search methods, including federated, faceted, and guided search, conversation guidance (next best thing to say), process guidance (next best thing to do), and analytics.

It should include out-of-the-box, pre-built connectors to leading CRM and contact center (CC) platforms. The integration solution should embed knowledge in the agent desktops on these platforms, so that customer service reps or contact center agents can leverage it to find answers, quickly, for customer questions.
