Abstract

The purpose of this article is to investigate the requirements of knowledge management (KM) services deployment in a Semantic Grid environment. A wide range of literature on Grid Computing, Semantic Web, and KM have been reviewed, related, and interpreted. The benefits of the Semantic Web and the Grid Computing convergence have been enumerated and related to KM principles in a complete service model. Although the Grid Computing contributed the shared resources, most of the KM tool obstacles within the grid are to be resolved at the semantic and cultural levels more than at the physical or logical grid levels. The early results from academia show a synergy and the potentiality of leveraging knowledge at a wider scale. However, the plethora of information produced in this environment will result in a serious information overload, unless proper standardization, automated relations, syndication, and validation techniques are developed.
