The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) has won the Hong Kong Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (MAKE) Award 2009, organised by the Knowledge Management Research Centre of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Apart from nurturing a knowledge driven culture through the KM framework established in December 2003, the OGCIO also harnesses the benefits of information and communications technology to drive KM in order to improve efficiency, productivity and customer value.

As a pioneer in developing and implementing a collaborative platform among government departments, the OGCIO launched the Knowledge and Information Collaborative Platform (KICP) in early 2008. The characteristics of the KICP are as follows:

(i) good demonstration of the use of information technology (IT) to establish and promote knowledge management tools;
(ii) contains elements of second generation web services (Web 2.0) such as Blog, Wiki, and Really Simple Syndication news feeds; and
(iii) provides tools and services for better supporting collaboration in knowledge work and rapid and effective knowledge/information dissemination within the Government IT community.

It is a golden opportunity to meet the people of OGCIO and get some fruitful insights from their experience sharing. Join the experience sharing session now.
