Facility knowledge environments: ebuildings, culture and technology

Abstract: "The convergence of emerging cultural analysis tools and knowledge management solutions are creating facility knowledge environments. This environment combines web-based cultural and technological solutions that are assisting corporate and government agencies with substantial life-cycle time and money savings. The ability to map the traditional corporate hierarchy with the new reality of internal cultural networks provides a roadmap that ""target markets"" internal knowledge. Experience how Silicon Valley-based high tech corporations and United States government agencies are combining these cultural maps with computer networks, portable Palm devices and the life-cycle design of facility environments, providing an enterprise the enabling mechanism toward controlling traditional corporate cost centers like operations and facilities. These initiatives are being measured through an array of metrics that will be shown. These initiatives (both private and government) began in the Fall of 1998."
