The issues of knowledge management systems in non-collocated environments are discussed by developing a hybrid model. Knowledge includes employee assignments to projects, return on investment, cost and benefit analysis. Two approaches, namely the centralized and peer-to-peer (P2P) approach, have been analyzed to find how various system architectures affect knowledge exchange in, about, and from projects. These approaches have been compared by focusing on the three dimensions that include the sharing, control, and structuring of knowledge. The client-server paradigm is common in most distributed computing environments, P2P is a rather recent computing paradigm in which all the nodes can take the role of either client or server.
