The History of Knowledge Sharing: A Coveo Infographic


Share on LinkedIn

Sharing and connecting sources of knowledge is behind everything we do. While we like to talk about the present and future of knowledge exchange, we can also look to the past for sources of inspiration and education.

To capture this history, we created an infographic that showcases a few key milestones of knowledge access and transfer. It’s remarkable to look at how information sharing has evolved from drawings and scribes, to mass broadcasting, to ever-increasing amounts of data and digital content.

We’ve certainly come a long way, and we have a ways to go. We’re at an inflection point in history when it comes to data-driven insight. Our customers have begun to harness the power of indexing technology, and they’ve found it’s a journey that is well worth the effort. To quote Forbes, capturing and leveraging knowledge might be the next great phase of wealth creation in history.

Our timeline is below. What would you add to it?
