Cloud computing offers many benefits. A strategic investment in enterprise cloud applications can help your organization adapt to change, reduce time to market and reduce costs. KM World brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “The best cloud KM combines cutting-edge technology with smart oversight.”

Cloud computing is one of the hottest trends in knowledge management currently. But as its popularity intensifies, some leaders are struggling to determine the best approach for implementation and oversight.

According to recent data, 49% of organizations moved aspects of knowledge management to platforms such as Microsoft Office 365 or Google G Suite last year—and even more firms are incorporating standalone cloud solutions into their knowledge management portfolios. When it comes to cloud adoption, there is no universal recipe for success.

The data suggests that cloud-based knowledge management requires a combination of innovation and restraint, or aggressive adoption of advanced technology with strong central oversight, traditional taxonomy and flexible implementation.

Organizations that have invested the time and energy in getting machine learning and content recommendations right are seeing the benefits.
