  • Lets re-cap and re-introduce our cross grid with our four key methods for gaining knowledge. The diagram here shows how an organisation could cover these bases. Pedagogic: At Beacon IT Group we used PowerPoint files saved as web files and delivered for on-line training via Internet Explorer web browser. We also used Windows HTML Help to generate Application Help for the BIDS application. Cultural: The developers and integrators use Internet Explorer to do basic research of the the wider developer world available to them. Two way interaction between developers and clients is handled with Outlook e-mail and MS Instant Messenger Historic: They use a Forum within their DotNetNuke-based Support site, MS Word to Report to senior management and I was working on adding Blog software for new kind of RSS linked newsletter aimed at driving dialog to the support site’s Q&A, Enhancement and Training Forums. Documented: They have a mix of MS Word User manuals, a searchable MediaWiki Knowledge base and downloadable PDF technical Documentation that they use to explain their technologies to potential customers. Unlike MS Word documents, PDF documents can be compressed for e-mail and can be secured to only allow low resolution printing but stop content scraping. This is one possible grid – there are more and they will develop as new tools become available to us in the cloud.
