Top Strategic Reasons for Pursuing Integration has a nice bar chart which lays out the top six reasons to pursue integration of various systems, namely to:

1. Improve information access.
2. Increase accuracy and consistency of data.
3. Leverage existing resources and systems.
4. Reduce IT costs.
5. Improve employee productivity.
6. Enable online collaboration with business partners.

It seems to me that many of these same reasons could apply equally well to the use of Knowledge Management systems. While the KM term has been roughed up a bit in various circles, perhaps a better moniker might be "Knowledge Integration".
