Pat-KM, for instance, was originally conceived as a much-needed way for companies to archive their internal data but has since evolved into a system that can monitor key technologies or competitors, acting as an early warning system for a corporation – especially important in today’s world where technologies are changing before our eyes faster than ever before. In addition to constant surveillance of a technological field, Pat-KM offers the ability for data to be tagged and annotated by experts within a company, helping companies to develop their own powerful resource of inhouse expertise that isn’t lost once a staff member leaves or retires.
