Due to many unknown factors, the research undertaken and presented in this paper conduct analysis on the outcomes of the investigation. The study focuses on the knowledge management system implemented in the research subject using case study approach. Questionnaire survey was used as the data acquisition instrument to solicit employees' feedback on different aspects of the system, organization motivational and the standard operation procedures in the company. Base on their daily activities, employees' jobs were grouped into different "task group". Results have shown that KMS and its use depend on the defined "task group". Based on the the analysis of the data compiled, visual presentations were generated and a number of problems and usage patterns were identified which led to a better understanding of the usage of KMS. The findings of the research are helpful to practitioners and researchers. The use of KMS by employees based on job categories in the IT Shared Services company can be used fundamental understanding for future project.
