Both information systems and knowledge management systems are important in an organisation and often fulfil the same task. The aim of this paper is to identify the border between these two systems. The approach of the research is to analyse both systems in order to identify their role in an organisation, determine the problems, advantages, and opportunities, and discover common and uncommon features between them to find out when an information system becomes a knowledge management system and when it is useful to implement the latter.
