- Consolidation of Knowledge Standards. ASTDs
platforms were initially compliant with SCORM 1.2 and have progressed
through SCORM 4.0 as the core standards for knowledge reuse.
- Fusion of Learning and Knowledge Management. ASTD/KMIs
platform has achieved interoperability, enabling the fusion of
knowledge management and learning.
- Automated Knowledge Creation and Indexing. One
of Delgados fundamental reasons for selecting the KMI platform
was its use of automated tagging, indexing, and taxonomy generation.
Over time, these tools have become even more robust, dramatically
reducing the cost of knowledge reuse.
- Incorporation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) Tools. Artificial
intelligence has combined with intelligent agents to interpret
natural language queries and deliver knowledge as needed.
- Knowledge Reuse Architectures. Over time, ASTD
has achieved its vision of reusing and repurposing knowledge objects
in any setting and context.
Delgado has used these capabilities to fuse performance
measurement, ASTDs distributed processes, and knowledge management.
Cost Accounting for the Cost and ROI of Knowledge.
Over the past five years, Delgado has progressively implemented
activity-based costing, allowing ASTD to benchmark and measure the
improvement in its processes. These measurements have become a fundamental
element in ASTDs enhancement of its relationship with members
and non-member customers.
e-Knowledge systems are context neutral.
Users Group Becomes Community of Practice in Ambient e-Intelligence.
Because of the leading-edge capabilities made possible
through the KMI applications platform, its users group has become
a recognized community of practice in ambient e-knowledge.
Through participating in this community, Ynez Delgado
has gained fresh insights on the use of ambient e-intelligence by
leaders in different industry sectors such as: Defense Technical
Information Center, repository of research and development for US
Department of Defense (DoD); Defense Acquisition University, winner
of distinguished distance learning program of the year; Cable &
Wireless, a leader in ambient e-intelligence applications, and others.
