Whilst Knowledge Management is about managing and relating to people, culture and organisational processes, the modern era requires the use of systems to support and enhance KM practice.

However, given the sheer volume of platforms, systems and technologies available, it is vital to ensure that systems and technologies used to manage organisational knowledge are fit for purpose, appropriate and user-friendly.
