RightAnswers: Effective Tools to Augment Knowledge Base
Jeff Weinstein, President & CEOEnterprises need data in the form of knowledge to fulfill their business goals, streamline IT tasks, and manage operations in a timely and effective manner. To realize the true worth of their existing resources and support the decision making processes, organizations adopt knowledge management tools that effortlessly help manage and logically advance knowledge resources. However, many firms are exposed to the challenge of ensuring ideal distribution of knowledge with those tools across their organizational structure. “For companies, we believe it is not enough to have knowledge; it has to be readily findable and usable,” states Jeff Weinstein, President and CEO of RightAnswers.
