ChatBots Could Finally Make Knowledge Management Painless

26 May 2017 3:00pm, by

In this episode of The New Stack Makers, we spoke with Rick Nucci, co-founder of chatbot platform provider Guru. You might remember Nucci’s name from another company he started a few years back — Boomi, which offered one of the very first cloud integration tools — Boomi was later acquired by Dell. Guru actually came out of the frustrations Nucci felt at Boomi — namely how to convey vital knowledge across an organization in a way that does not require a lot of sleuthing on the part of the employee. So, in today’s podcast, let’s find out how chatbots can make knowledge management easier. This episode was recorded at the Botness Enterprise conference in Austin, Texas.
