ThoughtShare Communications Launches Thoughtscape at KMWorld 2001
ThoughtShare Communications, Inc. (http://www.thoughtshare.com) announced the launch of Thoughtscape, a new suite of personal e-research tools, at KMWorld 2001 in Santa Clara, California. According to the company, Thoughtscape helps users find, manipulate, and share research more easily and efficiently. Consequently, knowledge workers can use both their intuition and analytical skills to examine their research critically and convert raw information into valuable corporate knowledge. Since Thoughtscape's core technology is based on open architecture, standards, and communication protocols, integration with complementary vertical applications and third-party products can be easily accommodated.
Thoughtscape components are sold separately or together in one suite. The Thoughtscape suite of personal e-research tools includes the following:
"Based on solid research, ThoughtShare has built products that fill one of the critical missing links in knowledge management: the ability to capture information from anywhere, add lots of value, link it all up, and package it for sharing," said Jim Bair, senior vice president at Strategy Partners International. "Essentially, this is what knowledge management is all about."
