Abstract

Various types of Knowledge Management approaches have been developed that only focus on managing organizational knowledge. These approaches are inadequate because employees often need to access knowledge from external knowledge sources in order to complete their works. Therefore, a new inter-organizational Knowledge Management practice is required to enhance knowledge sharing across organizational boundaries in their business networks. In this chapter, an ontology-based Inter-organizational knowledge Network that incorporates ontology mediation is developed so that heterogeneity of knowledge semantic in the ontologies could be reconciled. The reconciled inter-organizational knowledge could be reused to support organizational Knowledge Management process semi- or automatically. The authors also investigate the application of ontology mediation that provides mechanisms of reconciling inter-organizational knowledge in the network.
