Challenge Knowledge Management – Knowledge as a Resource
The development via the information society towards a knowledge society is also reflected in the increasing importance of knowledge as a competitive factor for companies. Therefore, the systematic handling of knowledge, data and information becomes the central challenge. Knowledge management strategies and tools such as OpenText Vibe are increasingly in demand in companies, as well as in research and teaching, alongside other information and communication technology solutions.
Document Management with OpenText Vibe
Systemize files and work cooperatively
In companies or in school and university learning groups, it is often necessary for several people to work together on documents. Tracking changes to a document and the ability to restore older versions are extremely important. Corporate document management is a strategy for organizational knowledge management: systematizing and organizing a large number of files and documents. Effective work is only possible with secure archiving and reliable availability of documents in central storage locations.
The online collaboration platform OpenText Vibe supports effective document management with numerous options:
Upload and save files
- clear file organization in folder hierarchies
- Time, location, and device
- independent data availability
- Tagging files
- Commenting on files and file versions
- Teamwork on documents
- unlimited access to all saved
- document pre-versions
- the change tracking
- Restriction and release of access rights.
- Here you can create the content that will be used within the module.
Project Management with OpenText Vibe
Characteristics of systematic project work
Modern project work requires specific competencies – and appropriate tools to foster successful project planning and control, as well as the (self-) control of project teams and the sharing of knowledge. In modern companies, many work processes take place in temporary and targeted projects. Project teams usually consist of experts from different departments – familiar corporate structures are broken up.
Systematic project management via online collaboration platforms such as OpenText Vibe enables effective project work in all phases of the project – from planning and initiation through implementation to results presentation. Freely configurable team workspaces, individual folder structures, shared project calendars and organized knowledge management (for example wikis, blogs, discussion forums) guarantee the possibility for a resource-saving and resource-saving project work.
Project archiving: Information generated in projects and built-in knowledge are retained after the project is completed and made available to new project employees, managers or project customers in one central location. Effective work – even in temporally and spatially separated project teams – is much easier to achieve.
Intranet Portals with OpenText Vibe
Intranet portals in companies – Charakteristics and goals
Corporate intranets serve as central information and communication portals
Here, relevant information, news, forms and documents are provided for all employees. Ideally, both the communication of these contents to the employees and the communication with each other should be dynamic and interactive.
Promotion of business information flow, supportof work processes and promotion of employee satisfaction
An intranet portal provides social software functionality (forums, chats, blogs, wikis), empowering employees with internal communication, knowledge sharing, and empathy. The interactivity of an intranet portal reflects a corporate culture that promotes self-directed and self-responsible teams and places value on having individual employees get involved.
The OpenText Vibe collaboration platform offers design options!
An intranet portal as an information, exchange and communication platform: here you can design the company-internal social network as the perfect mix for your environment. Using simple means, individual landing pages can be created using drag & drop, bundling the interest-oriented contents of the intranet and displaying them clearly.
Workflows: Process Optimization and -Automatisierung with OpenText Vibe
Increase of effectiveness and motivation in the optimization of work processes
Processes and workflows can often be rationalized into project teams or departments in companies. Such standardization promotes qualitatively improved, accelerated, as well as time- and cost-efficient work.
Measurable progress motivates!
Improving business processes also means increasing transparency and better predictability of steps and processes, the visibility of goals and subgoals, and the predictability of work input. Despite all standardization, there is still enough room for flexibility and adaptation to changes.
Represent and automate processes in workflows
Workflows always consist of a defined starting situation, an organized process and a defined end. Workflows support collaborative work by coordinating individual steps in the work process and, if necessary, by assigning them to specific people (groups). This structure enables the standardization of often repetitive work processes and the resulting time-consuming and cost-effective work while avoiding process losses.
Integrated worflow functions
OpenText Vibe offers the use of built-in workflow capabilities as well as easy use of workflow templates even for newbies in the field. If necessary, it is possible to edit existing workflows or to completely rebuild them without interrupting running processes. OpenText Vibe‘s easy and fast communication channels support workflows and effective teamwork.
