Information Today, Inc. Acquires Knowledge Asset Media

Information Today, Inc. has announced the acquisition of Knowledge Asset Media (KAM), which includes KMWorld magazine, the KMWorld.com Web site, the KMWorld Conference and Exposition, and related assets.

Based in Camden, Maine, KAM publishes KMWorld magazine, a publication that serves senior business and information systems executives in the forefront of the knowledge management movement. KMWorld also sponsors the annual KMWorld Conference and Exposition, which will be held September 13-15, 2000, in Santa Clara, California. According to the announcement, the conference presents the latest information technology software, Internet systems, and business practices and processes that drive knowledge management applications.

KAM founder Bruce Taylor will continue as editor and publisher of KMWorld. “Our team is excited to be a part of the future of the Information Today family,” he said. “This is a critical time in the rapid evolution of knowledge management, from bleeding edge 2 years ago to mainstream enterprise concern on the radar screens of over 90 percent of the Global 1,000 CEOs. KMWorld is best positioned to help this market continue its explosive growth.”

Besides publishing, Information Today, Inc. is also the organizer and sponsor of conferences for the library and information professional communities, including the National Online Meeting, Internet Librarian, Computers in Libraries, and Internet Librarian International (London).

“The whole area of knowledge management is something we’ve been monitoring for some time, and we were excited about this opportunity to acquire the premier publication and conference in the field,” said Tom Hogan Sr., president of Information Today, Inc. “The technologies that support knowledge management initiatives have a lot in common with the products and services of the information industry. We feel we are in an ideal position to explore and promote the synergies that exist between the two communities.”
