a powerful conference designed to explore the potential of knowledge management
and to master the related technologies of intranets and portals. Hosting more

integrated into daily business and work processes. The opening keynote speech
for KMWorld by Dave Snowden helped set the stage for the rest of the conference.

explain how KMW can improve decision-making and innovation within an organization.
