Founder, Leader of Prov Exec Committee, KMP
KF has a very strong technical background regardless of his business experience. Prior to his graduation in MScKM back in 2012, he studied Electronic Engineering, Computing Studies, Telecommunication Technology and e-Commerce. His early career was related to computers, electronics and software development.
KF has many hands-on experience in building web systems using open source technologies. He built the website for the 2012 graduation dinner, the initial website of KMP2P, and the following different revised websites for KMP2P, and KMP now, all based on open-source platforms. He had tried different technologies including the Google Sites, WordPress, Joomla and most recently Drupal. He just revised with a new version of the KMP platform.
KF highly promotes his concept of OSIP - Open Source Integration Platform, which means building of application platforms using open-source technology, and integrate with appropriate web services and resources available in the market. Since end of 2015, he started proving his OSIP concept with the KMP platform.
In his consultancy experience in 2015, he realized the challenges of organizations trying to catch up and upgrade with software systems in order to fulfill their business operations. It was not only the million-dollar costs, but also the time, the migration of data, the time-consuming testing, the lengthy adaptation process, and the IT team resources are all the obstacles that were the most serious burdens. Yet even after the implementation process which can easily last for 2 years, the technology already becomes out-dated, and business departments become reluctant to use. He describes this situation as shooting a moving target. In the fast-moving technology situation of today, it is difficult to win the game. Because of this, according to KF, the OSIP becomes a more viable solution to be considered.
According to KF, his passion is to build KM portals at a very low cost using his OSIP philosophy. He believes even SMEs should have the equal opportunity practising knowledge management, and a KM system is the fundamental, and probably the best place to start. It is a matter of cost. His latest version of the KMP platform is a solid evidence of his success. In this event, KF will share his concept, and the real hands-on experience he has gained on this subject, and the real-life experience of this KM journey.
