Knowledge organizations face one of the biggest challenges of knowledge management and retention of tactic knowledge.

We trust i3 team to turn our projects around quickly without breaking our budget! In all that time, I've had nothing but positive experiences with them – I would recommend their delivery team to any professional organization that expects outstanding client service.


A typical challenge that our customer came across, was retention of tactic knowledge in its IT department. A large number of employees have been with THEM since its inception or have been working on application since its conceptualization phase. These employees were proficient in their own areas that they had developed over the number of years of being associated with them or its client. However, this knowledge or process was not documented as a result of which, our customer faced major setback each time an employee moved ahead in his life after being associated with them, for a good number of years.
