ANALYSIS OF TWO TECHNOLOGY TOOLS THAT CAN BE USED TO SUPPORT THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A KNOWLEDGE STRATEGY IN AN ORGANIZATION USING SWOT ANALYSIS TOOLS

Abstract: 

As the technologies are becoming more increasingly important in the modern economy and present a powerful combination for the future of Knowledge Management, Interdependence between the technology and the KM leads to development of many frameworks that are used to support the implementation of a KM strategy in an Organization. KM technology tools such as Collaborative tools, with ability to provide Electronic Meeting systems, Video-conferencing, Groupware, Executive Information system, Internet, intranet, and extranet were discussed in this research. KM emanated as a result of the increase in the organizational changes experienced recently. Today, most organizations realized there is an exigent need to implement KM strategy. SWOT Analysis today’s play significant role in generating strategic internal strength, weakness of the organization, and the external threat and opportunity as well. It is been considered as the simple framework to strategically analyze the organizational situation. In this research work, two technology tools where choose and analyzed using SWOT analysis tool.

IDENTIFYING OBSTACLES TO KNOWLEDGE SHARING IN AN ORGANIZATION

Abstract: 

This study investigated possible causes of resistance or support by knowledge workers to sharing of knowledge within an organization. The problem addressed was that existing knowledge was not being effectively disseminated throughout the organization, resulting in lost productivity and opportunity as a result of failure to exploit available knowledge. Leaders of organizations and businesses can use the findings of this study to develop new processes and procedures for overcoming resistance to knowledge sharing, which might translate to increased innovation, productivity and competitive advantage. This study demonstrated that there were a myriad of barriers to knowledge sharing, these included but not limited to individual knowledge sharing, organizational knowledge sharing, technological knowledge sharing as well as cultural barriers. In doing so it confirmed prior research, as discussed in this paper. The research also uncovered a relationship between willingness to share knowledge and effective knowledge sharing, distributing the discovered barriers between each of these factors

SOCIAL MEDIA: AN INDISPENSABLE TOOL FOR ENHANCING PUBLIC SAFETY AND SECURITY

Abstract: 

The advancement in mobile technology has increased the usage of social media tremendously. Social media has opened up ways for people to easily interact with one another. At the same time it has open up ways for cybercrime and other actions that are threat to national security to be committed. Through social media, how can National Security be threatened? How can the security and safety of the citizens be enhanced? In this paper, we addressed these fundamental questions. Answers to these questions justify why social media is indispensable in the hand of security agents who are saddled with the responsibilities of protecting lives and properties of the public. In this paper our aim is to make it clear particularly to security agents and national security policy makers that social media is indispensable. That is, it should not be ignored considering the security threats it poses and its potentiality of being a tool that can be used by security agents to counter national security threats and safeguard the public.

Seasonal Ground water Configuration Maps showing Water level in Kano Metropolis, Nigeria.

Abstract: 

The paper presents the peak of dry and rainy season’s ground water configuration maps, so as to show the seasonal water level fluctuations in the study area. It involves measurement of wells elevations, static water levels from hand dugged wells at peaks of dry and rainy seasons and their elevations. The groundwater levels at peak of dry season in the area during the course of the study range from 3.20 to 19.00 mbgl (meter below ground level) with an average of 8.09mbgl. The maximum water levels elevation during the dry season was 500 masl (meter above sea level), minimum of 425.6 masl and average of 467.38 masl. While the water level measurement at peak of rainy season range from 0.50 to 12.0 mbgl. The maximum water level elevation was 508 masl, minimum of 444.60 masl and average of 479.04 masl. The differences in the groundwater levels for both peaks of dry and rainy seasons could be related to the variations in elevation, quantity of recharge, hydraulic properties, and other hydrogeologic conditions of the superficial aquifers in the study area. Information on the depth to water level has various uses, such as in borehole drilling, geotechnical investigations (for dams, roads, buildings etc), and in determining the direction of groundwater flow, which can be used for monitoring and identifying possible groundwater contamination

LINEAMENT ANALYSIS FOR ANKA SHEET 52, NE ZAMFARA STATE, NORTH WESTERN NIGERIA

Abstract: 

Remote sensing data (DEM) was used to study and analyze lineaments within Anka sheet 52 NE. Eight Shaded relief images were created by varying the solar Azimuth (0°, 45°, 90°, 135°, 180°, 2250, 2700, 3150). A solar elevation of 30o and an ambient light setting of 0.2 was chosen to ensure good contrast. Combination of shaded relief images 0°, 45°, 90°,135° and 180°, 225°, 270°, 315°was done to produce two combine shaded relief images. Automatic extraction of lineaments from these combine shaded relief images was carried out followed by buffering of lineaments to ensure continuity. Buffering of lineaments was followed by reclassification and combination of two reclassified image to generate a level of coincidence image. Reclassification of level of coincidence image was carried out followed by manual digitization of lineaments. Analysing these lineaments, it was observed that lineaments generated from combination of shaded relief images (0°,45°,90°,135°), had a dominant NW-SE direction. 52 lineaments were extracted from these images having a maximum length of 13701.2 m, minimum length off 2293 m. Lineaments extracted from combine shaded relief image (180°,225°,270°,315°) had a dominant N-S direction. A total of 47 lineaments were extracted and lineaments have a maximum length of 4346.093 m, and a minimum length of 2324.74 m. 90 lineaments were digitized from the final lineament map. A maximum length 8300.71m, a minimum length of 993.451 was recorded. A dominant N-S and NW-SE dominant directions was observed to be the dominant directions from the final lineament map. From this study it was observed that most streams within the study area are controlled by the lineaments. Also, the dominant N-S and NW-SE directions for lineaments can be related to Pan African orogeny.
