Abstract
Knowledge is now considered as an integral component of any organization and it played a significant role in how organisation is conducted and thus the need of innovative knowledge management (KM) grew. The budgetary constraints in education become a challenge for providing necessary information technology support for knowledge management activities development in the institutions. Many higher education institutions are facing the same problems with the growing need of IT infrastructure. The higher education institutions can now avail hosted services for major information technology (IT) activities including KM through Cloud Computing, which was beyond their budget before the advent of Cloud Computing. This short theoretical paper aims at identifying the limitations of current IT infrastructure for knowledge management and the article would encourage more effective handling the knowledge with the initiative of new information technology infrastructure and forming the knowledge management cloud.
