Fifty-two percent of British companies have no Knowledge Management system in place, according to research conducted by Meta4 UK, a provider of people-focused human and intellectual capital management systems. The research highlights the continued reticence of British companies to install a knowledge management solution as part of their IT infrastructure. In contrast, companies using a knowledge management solution are already reaping the benefits because the findings showed that 75 percent of those who have installed a KM solution believe that ROI ha been reached.
