The basic SNA module is an analysis tool that will map and analyze how nodes and users are interlinked. It is useful for knowledge management in organizations because it provides an insight on what nodes have greatest value and which users are frequently tapped by other users for knowledge. Since node analysis (eg most popular nodes) is already existent in other modules, we will focus here on an analysis of user networks.
Drupal can become a full-featured knowledge management support tool. An SNA module will help boost this position further and provide more motivation for organizations and enterprises to use Drupal.
