Knowledge Management is aimed at providing the desired knowledge whenever and wherever it is needed. In an organisation the complete knowledge of the organisation should be managed in such a way that it is available for everybody who needs it in order to accomplish his duties.
Knowledge networks have promised to solve the problem by bringing together two concepts: Semantic networks and a graphical visualisation using topic maps. Although these networks work quite well once they have reached a certain level the amount of work for the development cannot be underestimated. Wiki systems promise an easy handling and can be well applied for knowledge management. We argue that a combination of knowledge networks and an easy-to-use Wiki will seriously improve knowledge management. Various applications are possible: in a company, in a university, in a region or across borders.
