According to the DIKW model, knowledge is defined as information connected through relationships (Muller & Faltin, 2011).
These findings support the aforementioned DIKW theory, in that knowledge in reflective learning is derived from meaningful interrelations between information about a reflected situation and its environment (Muller & Faltin, 2011).
O DIKW model apresenta um modelo do processo comunicacional a partir da possivel continuidade entre as unidades dado e sabedoria.
A preocupacao do autor dirigia-se ao fato de que o aumento gradativo de dados, fatos e numeros nao gera, necessariamente, conhecimento, pois entre os dois niveis do DIKW model (dados e conhecimento) e preciso haver a transformacao clara e significativa de dados em informacao.

The DIKW Model is an information hierarchy that's frequently cited when trying to address this problem.
In the modern, slightly less poignant implementation of the DIKW model, we find four layers:
Two KM frameworks that came to the fore and achieved almost cult status, sometimes with very little empirical/evidential underpinning (Lambe, 2014) are the DIKW (Data-Information-Knowledge-Wisdom) Hierarchy (Cleveland, 1983; Zeleny, 1987; Ackoff, 1989) and the SECI (Socialization, Externalization, Internalization and Combination) Model (Nonaka & Takeuchi, 1995).
While acknowledging that the framework is far from perfect-particularly in understanding the term wisdom in terms of the KM literature-he feels that "the DIKW hierarchy holds a prime place in the domain of KM and rightly so, despite the apparent ambiguities between various terms of the hierarchy.
The presumption that if you process enough data, a system will deliver information and then knowledge is challenged by many critics of the DIKW hierarchy model.
This paper seeks to provide an alternative to the DIKW hierarchy and pyramid in the belief that it is not enough to criticise a model to make it less popular.
