Knowledge Portals: Components, Functionalities, and Deployment Challenges

  title={Knowledge Portals: Components, Functionalities, and Deployment Challenges},
  author={Claudia L{\"o}bbecke and Kevin Crowston},
Knowledge Portals (KPs) are highly integrative Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) that promise to synthesize widely dispersed knowledge and to interconnect individuals in order to provide a ‘one-stop knowledge shop’. Yet, KPs face major challenges in practice, as the intricacies of knowledge exchange are subject to varied individual and social factors. At the same time, growing anecdotal evidence from case studies indicates KPs’ enormous potential. In this paper, we take some initial steps…

Knowledge integration in virtual teams: The potential role of KMS
This article identifies four challenges to knowledge integration in virtual team environments: constraints on transactive memory, insufficient mutual understanding, failure in sharing and retaining contextual knowledge, and inflexibility of organizational ties, and proposes knowledge management system (KMS) approaches to meet these challenges.
Maintaining knowledge management systems: A strategic imperative
Pay attention both to research and practice to help transform current knowledge portals to ones that are more sensitive to the issues faced by practitioners, and elaborate on the need to pay attention to maintenance of knowledge management portals.
Tracking the Role and Evolution of Commercial Knowledge Management Software
By identifying the dominant fields of KM, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Information Retrieval (IR), it is possible to develop a broader perspective of the applicable technologies available for KM and align appropriate tools/gadgets to support various applications.
