Smart Cities work with many data collected from various sources. The data are useless unless people know how to process them effectively. The aim of the submitted paper is to find out what the attitudes of the employees working in industrial enterprises in the CEE region are towards the Knowledge Management and it also focuses on finding the means of possible improvements of the Knowledge Management implementation. In the first part, definition and importance of the knowledge is explained for better understanding of the dealing issue. The second part describes our questionnaire survey with sample of 650 respondents. Selected survey results are presented and interpreted in the following section. Main research findings and recommendations can be found in the fourth part. The last part summarizes all previous parts of the article. From the survey results can be concluded that there is a significant relationship between knowledge management performance and the ease of use of knowledge management tools.
