Data-Information-Knowledge-Wisdom DIKW Uncertain Theoretical Concept The DIKW pyramid (a.k.a. DIKW hierarchy, wisdom hierarchy, knowledge hierarchy, information hierarchy, and the knowledge pyramid) refers loosely to a class of models for representing purported structural and/or functional relationships between data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. The theory is rooted in the flaw that there is no scientific evidence to support the definitions of core hierarchy elements, such as Information and Knowledge. The origin of the DIKW theory is uncertain. http://jis.sagepub.com/content/33/2/163.abstract

Tacit Versus Explicit Knowledge NO_DATA Michael Polyani Theoretical Concept A belief that Explicit Knowledge represents knowledge that is easily transferrable, wherease Tacit Knowledge represents a type of knowledge that is not.
