Free sample

This book presents the many facets, concepts and theories that have influenced knowledge management and the state of practice concerning strategy, organization, systems and economics. The second edition updates the material to cover the most recent developments in ICT-supported knowledge management. It also provides a more coverage of its theoretical foundation including a new account of knowledge work, discusses the potentials and challenges of process-oriented knowledge management, adds a new chapter on modelling that plays an important role in knowledge management initiatives and contrasts architectures for centralized and distributed or peer-to-peer knowledge management systems.

Telecommunications will face a tremendous challenge in the coming years to be able to design, architect, and manage networks in such a rapidly evolving industry. Develop ment and application of heuristic methods will be fundamental to our ability to meet this challenge. Robert Doverspike, AT&T Labs Research Iraj Saniee, Bell-Labs, Lucent Technologies June PI, 1999 3 '' Journal of Heuristics, 6, 9-20 (2000) •"'Il © 2000 Kluwer Academic Publishers Telecommunications Network Case Study: Selecting a Data Network Architecture ERIC ROSENBERG AT&T Labs, Middletown, NJ 07748, USA email: eric. rosenberg@att. com Abstract This paper documents a model that was pivotal in deciding which of two architectures should be selected for a frame relay data communications network. The choices are either to continue using the current architecture, or to make a large incremental investment in new equipment which reduces the number of high speed inter-office trunks required to interconnect the switches. The analysis requires optimizing the mix of two types of customer port cards to determine the maximum customer port capacity of a switch. Simple approximations are used to estimate the number of inter-office trunks and trunk cards required. Based in large part on the costs computed by this model, an executive level decision was made to move to the new architecture. Key Words: data communications, network architecture, network design, frame relay, virtual circuits, economic analysis 1. Introduction To design a data communications network, it is necessary to consider a variety of factors.
Modern communication channels together with new electronic media stan dards are constantly changing traditional interaction patterns of humans and even machines In an increasingly globalized and networked world. Such a communication-based interaction is of pivotal economic importance in order to manage efficiently inter-organizational cooperation and business information flows. Consequently, the availability of generally accepted electronic commu nication standards is essential in order to decrease communication-related transaction costs. Roman Beck elaborates in his dissertation The Network(ed) Economy the im portance of the so far independently from each other discussed diffusion the ory on the one hand and network effect theory on the other hand. However, Roman Beck not only connects the two theories epistemologically, but also develops and extends those theories by providing a network diffusion model. The core of his model is the so-called network effect helix, where a dynamic and self-enforcing interplay between direct and indirect network effects is de ployed to simulate diffusion patterns and paths of communication standards. In his analysis, Roman Beck especially focused on the critical diffusion period be tween the market launch of a new communication standard and (in case of a successful diffusion) the achievement of a critical mass of adopters. His re search results and consequently the chosen title of the thesis are capable to il lustrate the overall topic of his work in the interesting area between an incom pletely interconnected "networked economy" on the one hand and a com pletely interconnected "network economy".
