KM is NOT "a" software
FBC>s / Dan C. Renson 19/10/2014
the future and characteristics of your Biz-Acromania
Biz-Acromania has been created in 1997 to ease the reading of papers dedicated to ERP (Enterprises Resources
Planning) and “tools” they were commonly utilizing.
Biz-Acromania differs from many other acronyms lists or dictionaries because of the here below specified reasons
and advantages ….
1. Biz-Acromania does not list all what is existing …
2. 24 main domains have been retained and colored differently as showed at the beginning: education, HR, KM, learning,
serious gaming , etc.
