Time: 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT
Presenters: Phil Green, Chief Technology Officer of Inmagic, Larry Hawes, Lead Analyst of Collaboration & Enterprise Social Media for The Gilbane Group. Moderating the event will be Andy Moore, Publisher of KMWorld.

“Most organizations using social technology today are using consumer-oriented tools, such as blogging, Google Docs, Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr, and see these initiatives as separate from their content and knowledge management initiatives,” says Phil Green, Chief Technology Officer of Inmagic. “These tools were designed to facilitate the creation of communities, but adoption inside the enterprise has been slow because they operate as a silo unto themselves, detached from critical content and information assets. A socialized knowledge repository can securely consolidate information silos, improve content quality, and increase employee productivity—all in ways not possible through consumer-facing applications.”

Larry Hawes will cover the broader impact of Enterprise 2.0, and explain why most organizations are struggling to leverage existing content, while also integrating a social component. He will describe the growing need to merge content from all available sources—including social software applications—into a single user interface to improve knowledge worker productivity. Hawes is a nationally recognized expert on information management technologies, and consults with organizations on technology selection and deployment strategies.

Inmagic’s Green will walk attendees through each step of socializing their knowledge repository, explain the do's and don'ts of implementing KnowledgeNet portals, and discuss how Microsoft SharePoint can be used as a complementary technology. He will demonstrate how companies including NASA, Newsweek, and R.V. Anderson Associates Limited are using Social Knowledge Networks to securely build KnowledgeNet portals that collect, organize, manage, share, and socialize corporate information assets. Green has 30 years of experience in the development of information technology, special libraries, and knowledge management technology.

The Webinar will be held Tuesday, May 19 at 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT. To register, visit KMWorld’s Web site. Space is limited, so please reserve quickly.
