Cloud Computing for Knowledge Management, Learning & Innovation

  1. 1. Cloud Computing for Knowledge Management, Learning & Innovation 12 April 2013, 9:30am – 5:30pm The Hong Kong Polytechnic UniversityCloud Computing has been gaining rapid adoption in the past few years and has started togenerate transformational effects to many businesses and industries. However, the fundamentalsof the Cloud are still not fully understood by many people. Indeed, many confined the Cloud to bemerely some kind of on-demand IT infrastructure and as such principally leveraged by manyorganisations for cost savings, productivity enhancements, and applications consolidation. While itis certainly true that many of the critical issues involved in Cloud deployment, for example,deployment models, security of data, migration, service level agreements, cross border flow ofinformation etc., still remain to be resolved, the full power of the Cloud is increasingly being seenas a revolutionary and disruptive business game changer. In particular, the Cloud’s impact onKnowledge Work and Business Innovations have not been fully realised.AbstractUp to now, much of the focus on the Cloud is on its ability to deliver scalable IT infrastructurethereby enabling an organisation to be more cost competitive and agile. There has beeninsufficient research into how the Cloud, together with the users, the connections and theembedded intelligence can deliver a paradigmatic shift to business model design, knowledgework, risk reduction and service innovations. This workshop will cover the Adolescent Cloud, theKnowledge Cloud, the Human Cloud, and the Intelligent Cloud and showcase how they cansupport Knowledge Work (which includes communications, collaboration, learning) and ServiceInnovations (which includes dynamic capabilities, co-creation of values, idea sourcing). Amongothers, concept and systems for Cloud-based Sourcing, Open Innovations and Competitions willbe illustrated with examples. Participants will gain clear insights on how to leverage the Cloud forproductivity gains, delegation of work, expertise location, collaboration, learning, idea sourcing,and to apply Cloudsourcing for risk reduction. This is not a technical workshop; it is business andapplication oriented.ProgrammmeThis workshop will cover:  Cloud’s impact on KM Systems Fundamentals of Cloud Computing  Crowdsourcing and Cloudsourcing Differences between the Cloud and the Web  Cloud-based Knowledge Services & X-a-a-S The Adolescent Cloud, Knowledge Cloud  Community Building and Development The Intelligent Cloud, Human Cloud  Cloud-based Personal Learning Environment Connections in the CloudWho Should Attend  Learning and Development Professionals Business Managers / Directors  Marketing Directors Knowledge/Innovation Managers  Researchers Human Resources Professionals  Librarians IT Directors / CIO  Recruitment Officers
