Andy Moore, publisher of KMWorld, acknowledged the intense process of selecting Hall of Fame companies for 2011 and the importance of cutting-edge innovation in influencing the knowledge management industry: “This year, we decided that a new perspective was called for. We felt that companies in the knowledge management arena – a very large ‘arena’ indeed –developing new and game-changing solutions should also be recognized and honored. We examined our annual ‘Trend-Setting Products’ winners and chose 15 that we feel represent the best, and most frequent, additions to the forward momentum of technology innovations in our industry.”
