Abstract: The success of Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) is ensured by the alignment of the technological infrastructure with other architectural elements of the organisation such as organisational forms, Knowledge Management (KM) process, human resource and reward systems. Despite the importance of the architectural alignment and KM, businesses tend to view KM as an information system project and focus on the implementation of KMS. The purpose of this research is to identify the architectural features of KM success organisations. The results of this research help managers to understand the architectural characteristics necessary to ensure KM success.

Keywords: human resources; knowledge management; KM; organisational structure; process; technological infrastructure; reward systems; success factors.
