  Knowledge technology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Knowledge technologies have emerged as a concept distinct from Knowledge management.
Knowledge technology is one that adds a layer of intelligence to information technology, to filter appropriate information and deliver it when it is needed.
Among knowledge technologies are ontologies, topic maps, blogs, groupware, document management, expertise locators, social networking engines, and wikis.

 PIM Technologies and Knowledge Management Systems: Sam Burns: i385q-dt Knowledge Management Systems   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
The term knowledge worker was first advanced by Peter Drucker, who defined a knowledge worker as one who "puts to work what he has learned in systematic education, that is, concepts, ideas, and theories, rather than the man who puts to work manual skill or muscle" (Drucker, 1973, pg.
Missing in the discussions of knowledge acquisition and management is the idea that a great deal of what is known and learned within an organization comes from individuals who depend on their own personal information management and knowledge management systems.
We know that knowledge workers do not want to have to leave one application to manage information in another, therefore it would be best for designers to study users and make attempts to imbed PIM functionality within their current environments much like the user is already seeking to do.

 Integrating Knowledge Management Technologies in Organizational Business Processes: Getting Real Time Enterprises to ...
Skeptics of technology have observed that real knowledge is created and applied in the processes of socialization, externalization, combination, and internalization (Nonaka and Takeuchi, 1995) and outside the realm of KM technologies.
These technologies would need to be adopted and appropriated by the human users, integrated within their respective work-contexts, and effectively utilized while being driven by the performance outcomes of the enterprise.
The "knowledge application gap" that is characteristic of the inputs- and processing-driven technology-push model have also been the subject of criticism in scholarly research on KM (Alavi and Leidner, 2001; Zack, 2001).
