A typical purpose of a knowledge management system is to enable a group of experts to contribute, edit and manage its content and features. The owner of the system may employ a subject matter expert on a contract to provide the expert knowledge which must then be securely distributed to members. This is a common practice amongst Research Organisations, who employ contactors to provide their expert knowledge.
The perfect interface between the Expert and the Subscriber is a secure online service. Role and Access management ensure that the knowledge is safely managed. A proofing path / moderation ensure that the data is correct before enabling access to the subscribers.
This kind of online service also means that the owner can present the data to other paying subscriber organisations and therefore share knowledge whilst raising revenue.
