From KLV, Germany:
PowerKNOW is a Web based Knowledge Management Solution to save and share knowledge. Create your own Knowledge Base or Document Management System. It is very effective in managing different forms of existing Knowledge or creating new KnowHow. Critical Knowledge of an organization can be saved and transferred back into the business processes. Retrieval of Knowledge and Information can be significantly optimized.
It consists of two main components: Contents and Access Methods (Taxonomy and Full text search with highlighting). By defining the taxonomy and the structure of contents, a customized Knowledge Retention Solution can be created. It is based on a modular software platform. The initial installation is done by an IT-Administrator through simple procedures. A Knowledge Manager, with little IT-Know How, is able to change the configuration and parameters designed to meet the needs of an individual solution. It supports the Debriefing interview technique to collect knowledge.
