Coemergence Inc., an innovative developer of knowledge-based software for growth-related business processes, is pleased to announce it has been selected by KMWorld Magazine as one of the "100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management."
The KMWorld list was conceived as a way to recognize organizations leading the way in the knowledge economy.
"Criteria for inclusion differ, as do the technologies recognized, but all companies share the following: Each has helped to create a market, redefine one or enhance one, and all of them demonstrate the capacity for customer-driven agile innovation," says KMWorld editor-in-chief, Hugh McKellar. Compilation of the list is a year-long, collaborative process with vendors, analysts, colleagues, theorists and customers.
"I’ve been the editor of KMWorld magazine for six years. In that time I’ve seen a lot of software ideas that have tried to facilitate real ‘knowledge work.’ During that time, I’ve seen components of Coemergence’s ACIS system, but I’ve never seen them all assembled together as Coemergence has done. I’m extremely impressed," adds McKellar.
Built around a patented early warning methodology, the ACIS software solution captures the human or 'water-cooler' knowledge that exists in the discussions people have with clients, partners, suppliers, peers, consultants and others in the marketplace. ACIS then weaves this knowledge with both structured and unstructured information to provide users with a powerful, real-time view of their business environment. Critical information is immediately distributed to the people who need to know it, providing the insights and signals necessary to identify and act on emerging opportunities and threats before competitors.
Coemergence has also been recently recognized by Branham Group as one of Canada’s "Top IT Up and Comers" and its ACIS solution was named a "Trend Setting Product" by KMWorld.
Coemergence's customers comprise a growing number of Fortune 1000 companies, including ConocoPhillips, De Beers, Gold Fields, Newmont Mining and Occidental Petroleum.
A complete listing of the 100 Companies that Matter in KM will be published in the March 2006 issue of KMWorld and online at WWW.KMWORLD.COM.
