The banking industry is characterised as one of the most knowledge intensive sectors. From this perspective, banks’ performance is directly related to the performance of knowledge.
Knowledge management has been used as a high-promise business concept. In an era of business transition, the effective management of knowledge is proposed as a strategy that exploits the organisational intangible assets. However, the term ‘knowledge management’ has been used in order to describe many different applications. In some cases, the tag of ‘knowledge management product’ is attached to several software programs purely for marketing reasons.
We recognise knowledge management as a socio-technical phenomenon where the basic social constructs such as person, team and organisation require support from ICT applications. In this special issue, we investigate the full range of knowledge management technologies and the latest developments as promoted by the advent of the semantic web and Web 2.0
This issue brings together academics, practitioners, researchers, and aims to deliver a reference edition for all those interested in the exploitation of knowledge management for the banking industry.
