We are continuing to provide consulting services face-to-face following common regulations and also fully online. Since we are working in 20 countries already for years, we are not surprised that this works very well. Specifically, with a sound technical equipment, virtual collaboration can be very effective and fun.

Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence

Digitalization today mostly means the digitalization of knowledge processes. Data collection and analysis, information processing and visualization, knowledge sharing, and capturing are core activities of Knowledge Management, which perform better when digital. Knowledge Management provides the organizational context for successful digitalization- and AI-projects. Specifically, the development of integrated knowledge portals and knowledge graphs are the backbone of connected data, information, and knowledge being the true source for artificial intelligence solutions. Together with world-leading IT partners, KMA provides high-end solutions for companies, who want to know more than their competitors. Digitalization, knowledge graphs, and artificial intelligence are also subject to the KM Advanced Training Course taking place in Vienna from 12 to 13 November 2020.
