Dirk Balfanz, Matthias Grimm, and Mohammad-Reza Tazari. A Reference Architecture for Mobile Knowledge Management. In Mobile Computing and Ambient Intelligence: The Challenge of Multimedia. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 5181, pp. 1-9, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2005)


Although mobile knowledge management (mKM) is being perceived as an emerging R&D field, its concepts and approaches are not well-settled, as opposed to the general field of Knowledge Management (KM). In this work, we try to establish a definition for mKM. Taking into account building blocks of KM in enterprises and the abstract use cases of mKM systems we introduce an reference architecture for mKM systems as a basis for verifying and comparing concepts and system architectures. Finally we address the potential of mKM to be suitable as a prototype model for mobile, situation-aware information processing in the field of Ambient Intelligence Environments.
