With the increasingly prevailing innovation 2.0 and internet plus, knowledge management literatures have advocated the direct effect of transactive memory systems (TMS) on knowledge integration ignoring the fact that TMS eventually leads to the integration action mediating individual behavioral intentions. Given this apparent gap, we investigate integrative process of individual knowledge based on TMS and behavioral intention. The explorative results are that: individual intention has significant and positive impact on knowledge integration directly; specificity and coordination of TMS have significant and positive effect on individual intention directly; the effect of credibility of TMS on individual intention is not significant. These preliminary outcomes can be applied to explain the most individual knowledge integration phenomenon.
