KMWorld 100 COMPANIES That Matter in Knowledge Management

Sandra Haimila

This article appears in the issue of March 2017 (100 Companies) [Vol 26, Issue 3]

Things that matter: innovation, ingenuity, resourcefulness, usefulness, collaboration, community, expertise. Our annual list of 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management features organizations that manifest those traits themselves, and that help their customers attain such qualities. In researching the list this year, we were struck by the preponderance of such terms as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and cognitive computing — capabilities driving technology ever steadily toward more human-like behavior. Chatbots help us shop online, and they even participate in our political dialog online. Digital assistants are extending their reach to help users find answers and solve problems. And autonomous vehicles can drive without us. But in addition to those seemingly futuristic functions, tried-and-true technologies to help manage knowledge are well-represented on the list …records management, business process management, enterprise content management, business intelligence, and so on. The banner of knowledge management spans a wealth of territory to encompass solutions that range from digitizing paper invoices to simulating human conversation. Technologies evolve and so does this list. We don’t start from scratch each year but rather refine the list annually, eliminating some companies to make room for others.


We encourage you to visit the websites of this year’s list of companies. Also, beginning on page 18, KMWorld, Volume 26, Issue 3, and following the online editorial articles, you can hear from some of the companies in the View From the Top section. Here, CEOs and other top officials share their vision of the knowledge economy and how their solutions allow their customers to reach their goals.
