Organizations looking to develop a knowledge management practice (KMP) will sometimes think they can turn to SharePoint instead of trying a specialized solution like WSN Insight. This decision stems from overestimating SharePoint’s capabilities and finding the move to a specialized solution unbecoming. Nevertheless, there are countless cases where organizations have made the decision to use SharePoint to build a KMP and the end results prove it is not a good approach
Building a knowledge management solution (KMS) with SharePoint is very difficult. SharePoint was not designed to manage knowledge. SharePoint is also not an easy platform to use. It can take years to master and often requires assistance from developers and web designers. In addition, there are inevitable issues that organizations will face when they try expanding their KMS functionality, especially when migrating to a newer version of SharePoint. SharePoint will require considerable configuration, modification and application development expertise to create a KMS. You can apply your organizations time and financial resources to undertake this endeavor or you can purchase the WSN Insight "off-the-shelf" purpose built KMS and be up and running in a few hours.
