Abstract

The information architecture of an organization is the way individuals, groups and the organization itself handle information and hence is a central issue in knowledge management. Knowledge management software assembled in knowledge management systems reflects and influences information architecture in parts or as a whole. Yet insufficient flexibility prevents knowledge management systems to be used effectively as a tool to conduct the ongoing evolution of an organizations information architecture. In this paper we first describe results from the TO_KNOW project regarding the integration of components in current knowledge management systems. These experiences we base on the K_SERVICES project proposing a consequent componentoriented approach to build knowledge management software to enable the support of dynamic strategies in knowledge management.
