Knowledge Repository: Implementing Learning Management System into Corporate Environment
Keywords:Cloud ERP, Knowledge Repository, Knowledge Retention, Learning Management System,
AbstractLearning Management System (LMS) refers to the system that provides the delivery, assessment and management tools for an organization to handle its knowledge repository. However, learning environment model between corporate and academic environment is significantly different. Academic environment focuses on students’ achievement and never meant to retain them while in a corporate environment focuses on knowledge sharing among employees and a way to retain them. The growth of Knowledge Economy has transformed human capital to be the vital asset in business organization of the 21st century. Arguably, due to its white-collar nature, knowledge-based industry is more favorable than traditional manufacturing business. However, over dependency on human capital can also be a major challenge as any workers will inevitably leave the company or retire. This situation will possibly create knowledge gap that may impact business continuity of the enterprise. Knowledge retention in the corporate environment has been of many research interests. By using the aspirations of a proven LMS implemented in an academic environment, this paper proposes LMS model that can be used to enable peer-to-peer knowledge capture and sharing in the knowledge-based organization and also minimize the impact of staff turnover. Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), referred to an ERP solution in the internet cloud environment was chosen as the domain knowledge. The complexity of the Cloud ERP business and its knowledge make it very vulnerable to the knowledge retention problem. This paper discusses how the company’s essential knowledge can be retained using the LMS system derived from academic environment into the corporate model.
