About the Knowledge Base
Search all the Knowledge Base
Testimonial: I have found that the new HDAA Knowledge Base reduces the time it takes me to research industry stats & reliable information for the ITSM sector. It’s easy to use search functionality encompassing KCS principles, helps to filter & tailor my searches more accurately & there are numerous new services now available through the website. Every time I return to the site there is new information published. Very impressive.

Over the course of five revisions, KCS has evolved into a rich methodology: a set of practices for creating and maintaining knowledge in a support environment. Unlike the traditional add-on process of knowledge engineering, KCS is an integral part of day-to-day operation in support centers – KCS becomes the way peoplesolve problems and creates knowledge as a by-product of problem solving.
While KCS is enabled by technology, KCS is primarily about people. People are the source of knowledge. KCS has proven that the best people to capture and maintain support knowledge are the people who create and use it every day – the support analysts.
For optimum performance, KCS practices and the tools that support them must be integrated with other support and business systems, including incident management, change management, and service level management processes and systems.
