Samsung SDS was given a knowledge management award by a British research company at the 14th annual World Knowledge Forum held in Seoul on Friday.
Teleos named the Samsung subsidiary as one of the 2013 Asian Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises.
A panel of Asia-based Fortune 500 senior executives recognized the company for developing Arisam 3.0, a knowledge-based solution created in 1997 that enables employees to build and share databases and information within the company.
“Arisam 3.0 is aimed at creating a new corporate culture in SDS by providing an information-sharing IT plaza where people participate and create new knowledge. It is a snapshot of the company’s concerted efforts to maximize corporate value and realize a creative management,” the Korean company’s chief knowledge officer Choi Ho-deuk said.
The platform classifies data into 82 types based on business segments and stages in a bid to systematically capitalize the company’s information assets, Samsung SDS said. Currently, some 180,000 data items are registered and 6,000 employees on average a month use it for work.
Alongside Samsung SDS, a total of 20 Asian companies including Samsung Electronics, Toyota, Infosys and POSCO received awards this year.
