Our new in-depth product review of Factiva, Dow Jones' premium news aggregation service, looks at how this news database and research platform has evolved since our last full review a couple of years ago.

This review:

  • Introduces Dow Jones and Factiva and highlights the value the product offers

  • Looks at the range of content available from the global news aggregation service, including new content added since the last Factiva review and some of the results of its annual content survey

  • Examines functionality, particularly in relation to its search performance and interface. We also take a closer look at Dow Jones Intelligent Indexing, its API and wide range of uses

  • Explores the various reports that are available to administrators as well as the help and training offered within the product

  • Presents a general overview of product development and what changes can be expected in the near future

  • It concludes with a look at pricing and provides a general overview of the competitor landscape, which includes Nexis, Naviga's NewsEdge, and ISI Emerging Markets in the traditional business news and information market, along with Meltwater, Cision, D&B's Hoovers, Alacra, Manzama Insights, and InfoDesk in the media monitoring space.
