May 30, 2001 Webinar:  "Building Knowledge and Innovation
Management Portals"

Webinar Time:

10:00 a.m. Pacific/12:00 p.m. Central/1:00 p.m. Eastern


Edward C. Swanstrom, Founder and President of eKnowledgeCenter

Edward C. Swanstrom is secretary-general of the Global Knowledge
Economics Council (GKEC), a not-for-profit organization formed to
discuss and select plans, policies, and metrics to measure and
increase efficiency of knowledge markets and the quality of
knowledge at all levels. Mr. Swanstrom is the founder and
president of eKnowledgeCenter. He developed the Extreme
Innovation(SM) technique and the eKC Knowledge Management Method
taught by eKnowledgeCenter. Based on a factory model, and backed
by an economic model, the eKC Knowledge Management Method is an
active system for capturing tacit knowledge in a company,
preventing loss of knowledge, and improving knowledge acquisition
at all levels of business.

Webinar Focus:

Enterprise Knowledge Portals (EKPs) are increasingly popular in
organizations because they provide access to explicit knowledge in
the organization and collaboration and other tools for the
identification and sharing of tacit knowledge. But do they really
manage knowledge and innovation? Webinar participants will take a
look at the application of the GKEC Knowledge Economics Model in
the portal environment, using innovation indicators embedded into
the enterprise knowledge processes to drive the Innovation
Cockpit. The Innovation Cockpit offers a unique meta-view of
innovation across the enterprise that can be directly tied to
economic results.

June 20, 2001 Webinar:  "Maximize Portal ROI"

Webinar Time:

10:00 a.m. Pacific/12:00 p.m. Central/1:00 p.m. Eastern


Erick Rivas, President and CEO of Mongoose Technology

Mr. Rivas brings over 15 years of experience in enterprise
software design, development, and management to Portal Lifecycle
Management - the ability to cost-effectively design, assemble,
deploy, and manage a portal within a single environment. Prior to
Mongoose Technology, Mr. Rivas was co-founder and vice president
of development at ProtoSoft, Inc., a leader in enterprise
component modeling tools used by IT organizations to design and
deploy business-critical applications. After an acquisition of
ProtoSoft, Inc. by Platinum Technology in 1995, Mr. Rivas was vice
president of product integration in the development of Platinum's
Application Lifecycle Suite until he founded Mongoose Technology
in September 1999.

Webinar Focus:

An enterprise portal is the most pervasive application in the
enterprise - it touches every person and data source within an
organization. Without effective management, it can quickly become
the most complex and expensive application in the enterprise. In
this webinar, Mr. Rivas will present three ways to get the most
from this strategic investment:  Portal Lifecycle Management, an
open standards-based portal framework, and applications of purpose
for enabling effective Web communities and online collaboration.
