Globalization has inevitably forced organization including higher education institution to improve its competitive advantage. Recently, the notion of knowledge management has been gaining wide acceptance toward organizational enhancement. It includes the use of technology to support knowledge creation, storage, transfer and implementation. However, the utilization of advanced technology, for some organizations, likewise conveys some problems. This article investigates the Centre of Information Technology and Database (PTIPD) as a unit responsible for data management and the use of ICT as enabler for knowledge creation and dissemination among academia at Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University Yogyakarta. This article studies the university's policy in terms of technology implementation and its budgeting as well as its member's perception on the technology implemented. A number of organization's members participated in interviews of this qualitative study. The results of this study found that the use of ICT and the role played by PTIPD remain mediocre and should be improved to accommodate actual knowledge management system. Eventually, this article recommended the improvement of ICT implementation at Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University. Furthermore, this study will be enlightening for researchers and practitioners of knowledge management particularly in relation to the use of ICT as knowledge enabler.
