Our blog readers got the sneak peek into our new Know and Go series a few weeks ago. We've "officially" launched the series to the greater Inmagic and knowledge management community. More information on what's in the hopper can be found in our press release below.

New Info Series Clarifies Social Knowledge Management and Enterprise 2.0 Strategies

Inmagic Community Receive Free, on-Demand Guidance for Implementing Social Knowledge Management

WOBURN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inmagic today announced “Know and Go,” a series of free educational resources that give information and knowledge management professionals ideas, insight, and guidance for implementing social knowledge management strategies in their organizations. The launch kicks off with the following resources -- all in a “bite-sized” format for easy viewing and comprehension:
The role of today’s information professionals is more important than ever. They must create environments that not only support traditional functions of research and discovery, but also foster collaboration, increase productivity, and improve organizational effectiveness. Increasingly, leading organizations are looking to social knowledge management and E2.0 technologies. But for many, there are still questions about which tools to embrace, how to use these tools, and how best to develop the right strategy that will yield the greatest results.

“There’s a lot of buzz in the market around enterprise social networking and experimentation with deployments of social media behind the firewall, but organizations often miss the impact and benefits of social media because social media technology is usually disconnected from enterprise knowledge repositories,” says Mike Cassettari, Vice President of Marketing for Inmagic. “The Know and Go series is focused on helping information professionals create strategies that tightly integrate content and social media, receive guidance on best practices, and share perspectives on how to implement successful social knowledge management solutions within their organizations.”

Industry consultants, analysts, thought leaders, and Inmagic executives will host the 15-to-20 minute sessions produced in multiple formats. These experts will share their unique experiences and advice on topics including:
  • Current and future trends in social knowledge management and E2.0
  • Industry-specific social knowledge management strategies
  • Strategies and tips for implementing Social Knowledge Networks (SKNs)
The series will also feature webcasts that cover Inmagic products and solutions, including Presto which was recently named by KM World as a Trend-Setting product for 2009.

Chris Brown, Content and Knowledge Management Consultant for Inmagic, hosts one of the webcasts, "Knowledge Management 2.0: Enterprise Social Networking and Social Knowledge Management." Brown covers best practices for socializing an organization’s content, including the major differentiators between enterprise social networking and social knowledge management. Before organizations can determine which enterprise social networking technology will fit their needs -- or if their business is even ready for this kind of technology -- Brown will help them answer crucial questions, including:
  • Can you wait for your social network to reach critical mass before you realize value and organizational impact?
  • What role should social media play in your overall content and knowledge management strategy?
  • Will your knowledge management needs be properly addressed by simply connecting people to people? Or do you need to connect people to the information and content that will help them—and your organization—become more effective?
Brown provides answers and insight to these questions and more. Info pros can view this webcast and others on Inmagic’s Web site. New resources will be added to this site on a regular basis.
