2Blake, P.: ¬The knowledge management expansion : changing market demands force traditional firms to reinvent themselves.
In: Information today. 15(1998) no.1, S.12-13,18.
Abstract: Knowledge management is not simply an extension of information management but requires a company to change its culture and processes using IT to make knowledge easily used and distributed. A survey showed 90% of US and European respondents considered themselves as knowledge intensive businesses and 96% agreed that they could get more value from their knowledge base. As firms turn to knowledge management, text retrieval companies are launching or developing knowledge management products. Describes the Knowledge Network suite of the Canadian firm, Fulcrum Technologies. This software is selling well but Fulcrum is in a precarious position as its traditional customer base is shrinking faster than expected. As another example, refers to the strategy adopted by Dataware technologies for countering cash flow problems by selling part of its operation to build up cash reserves and pinning its future on Dataware 2

In: Information today. 15(1998) no.3, S.19-20.
Abstract: Discusses the implications for users of patent information of the decision by the European Patent Office (EPO) to follow the US by offering the full text of patents, free, via the Internet.

While it is possible that the Internet and online vendors could supply complementary levels of service, high quality patent abstracting and indexing is expensive and vendors are under pressure to reduce prices. Describes the implementation of the EPO project and the impact on MicroPatent of IBM's Web based patent service
