  • M. F. MizintsevaEmail author
  • T. V. Gerbina


The issues of application of knowledge-management technologies in modern economic conditions are stated. The aspects of digitalization of the economy, including those at the corporate level, are considered. The concept of “knowledge management” is analyzed from the point of view of foreign researchers; it is noted that knowledge has become an important intangible asset and a factor of competitiveness. The main results of knowledge customization (knowledge maps, knowledge packages, resource catalogs, forums and chats, practice communities, storytelling, corporate blogs, and a bank of ideas) are distinguished. Application of ontological models and gamification in order to involve staff in the dissemination and exchange of knowledge is shown. The roles of human and information technologies in knowledge management are compared.
