CIBER Principal to Speak at 13th Annual DAMA International Symposium
Half-Day Workshop to Focus on Competitive Advantage and ROI Through Portal and Knowledge Management Architecture
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. - Feb. 13, 2001 - One of CIBER, Inc’s (NYSE: CBR) leaders in knowledge management (KM) and portal services, Robert S. Seiner, will head a discussion with leading practitioners and solution architects on the components of KM systems for businesses seeking competitive advantage and bottom-line results at the 13th Annual DAMA International Symposium. The symposium, to be held in conjunction with Wilshire Conference’s 5th Annual Meta-Data Conference, March 4 through 8 in Anaheim, Calif., is the world’s most authoritative data management conference attracting nearly one thousand attendees from more than 20 countries.
Seiner’s half-day workshop, “Knowledge for Action: The Discipline of Spreading Knowledge”, will focus on the development of knowledge architecture, and creating competitive advantage and ROI through successful implementation of employee portals. The interactive session creates an environment where attendees can learn from others how to identify knowledge artifacts, design knowledge processes, classify knowledge, design portals and solve cultural issues within clients’ organizations.
“All of these are vital steps in creating a competitive advantage through knowledge management,” said Seiner, a principal consultant and Business Intelligence local practice leader for CIBER’s Pittsburgh office. “Knowledge Management has been defined as the discipline of spreading the knowledge of individuals or groups across organizations in ways that directly impact performance. By bringing what you know to this open forum and taking away new lessons learned - that is what knowledge management is all about.”
With close to 20 years of experience helping Global 2000 companies solve business problems with data, information and knowledge-based solutions, Seiner, along with other CIBER consultants across the country, have recently worked on numerous projects incorporating KM and portal solutions. Below are a few of these projects:
“CIBER defines a high level architectural framework to guide its clients through essential components of a successful KM initiative,” said Rich Pachler, CIBER Vice President and National Practice Leader for Internet Services. “Additionally, corporate culture transformation is critical in creating an environment for information sharing. CIBER lends its expertise in examining business processes and organization dynamics to assist clients with the transformation to a collaborative culture and ensuring a sense of membership and obligation.”
“Knowledge Management envisions getting the right information within the right context to the right person at the right time for the right business purpose,” said Seiner, who publishes a quarterly newsletter, The Data Administration Newsletter (TDAN.com), an internationally recognized e-publication that focuses on the management of data, information and knowledge as valued corporate assets. “KM involves getting groups of people together that share a common interest that when pulled together to share knowledge, can immediately impact the bottom line.”
