Information and communication technologies are the one of the key factors connecting technological progress and the globalization process in creating the knowledge-based economy, as well as in the context of enterprise development. Information and communication technologies are crucially important in achieving the concept of efficient knowledge management in enterprise. One of the main roles of information technology in knowledge management is to support the process of knowledge transfer and creation. These technologies also help the processes of collecting and organizing the knowledge in order to make this knowledge available for all potential users. This paper presents a general concept of information and communication technologies supporting knowledge management with the use of some fuzzy sets theory.
