Bi-Strategic Commands IKM Working Group Meets at JFTC

2017 05 10 bi scikmwg 1Close to 30 NATO Information & Knowledge Management Officers (IKMO) gathered in Bydgoszcz to discuss ongoing projects and ways ahead. Between 9 and 11 May the Joint Force Training Centre (JFTC) hosted the first 2017 Bi-Strategic Command IKM Working Group.

Representatives of the Allied Command Operations, the Allied Command Transformation as well as IKM experts from their subcommands and associated agencies - including Land, Air and Maritime Commands, Joint Force Command Brunssum, Joint Force Command Naples, Multinational Division Southeast, Combined Air Operation Centre, JFTC, Joint Warfare Centre, Joint Analysis and Lessons Learned Centre, NATO CIS Group and NATO Communications and Information Agency – meet on a regular basis (twice a year) to enhance and streamline the information and knowledge management processes developed and used within the Alliance. This time was no exception.

Discussions between IKM experts touched upon progress and challenges related to implementation of the unified NATO Information Portal, development of new electronic document management and workflow systems. Two companies presented beta versions of software of this type which was a highlight of the event.

The JFTC team’s added value to the meeting was presentation of sophisticated IKM solutions applied by the Centre within recent years. Electronic workflows and management tools used by JFTC may become a good example for other NATO commands and units.

The next Bi-Strategic Command IKM Working Group is planned for autumn.
