In order to improve decision support through knowledge management it is becoming increasingly important to link Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems with data warehouses, business intelligence and knowledge management applications. In the context of efficient definition and execution of strategies it is furthermore a key issue to combine internal and external as well as quantitative and qualitative information. The Internet is already one of the most important media for accessing external data and it might continue to grow in significance. In the research project MINT (Management Information from the INTernet) supported by SAP AG and the Bavarian Research Center for Knowledge-based Systems the prototype of an Editorial Workbench has been developed. This system helps to manage knowledge spread in internal and external sources in order to distribute the right information to the responsible manager in time. SAP decided to use the prototype for the development of their new product Strategic Enterprise Management (SEM)TM.
