[Topic Series: News, and Other Commodities]


Many organisations are questioning the wisdom of licensing large databases of news and related information, when they really just need a subset, or when essential resources are not included in the dataset.

Platform technologies to enable information centres to create, manage and distribute their own blends of content are increasingly available and up to the challenges of even a large, global organisation.

Some of these are available via database providers (such as Newsdesk from LexisNexis; SinglePoint from Northern Light); others are standalone technology pure-plays (EditorEye, Linex Systems, Attensa).

Should you be considering this option? Join this session to hear about the pros, cons and processes for DIY aggregation:

  • The perceived and real benefits of going DIY
  • Process for gathering requirements and testing options
  • A clear evaluation of the new costs to consider, as well as potential savings (if any).

We'll also share tips on approaching this type of project - which stakeholders to engage when, how to manage resources and protocols for platform testing.

The future of current awareness requires closer management of both sources and distribution methods. This FreePint webinar will bring that future into focus.

Restricted to FreePint Subscribers and registered guests. Included in your FreePint Subscription, but spaces are limited.
