Dow Jones has announced a new partnership with Curation Corporation, a risk monitoring and content specialist, offering curated news briefings that provide customers with timely insights on peripheral risks, emerging disruptive trends and new business opportunities.
“Peripheral risks are typically found outside the parameters of traditional risk monitoring, but may have a dramatic and substantial effect on a business if unrecognized,” said Chris Lloyd, Head of Dow Jones’ Professional Information Business.
Powered by Dow Jones’ Factiva database, which includes nearly 33,000 premium sources, each briefing will feature relevant insights that highlight disruptive trends facing a customer’s business or industry.
Content from Factiva will be algorithmically filtered, read, summarised and then ranked by a dedicated team of specialist curators on a daily basis. Curators will work with industry experts to provide further insight and recommendations on subjects of importance to customers.
Features of this joint product offering include:
• Dow Jones Curated Insight Briefings -- a selection of 18 topic-based news briefings, based on the best content available in Factiva’s premium news archive. Topics include Robots and Drones; Sharing & On Demand Economies; Disruption in Property; Internet of Things; and Disruptive Trends in China, with new topics to be added over time
• Dow Jones Disruption Insight Radar -- curated weekly alerts on the world’s most important stories and why they are likely to impact your business
• Access to the world’s best collection of licensed content via Factiva
The partnership combines Dow Jones content with Curation Corporation’s expertise in news curation, enabling customers to process complex subject matters faster and more easily.
“Unlocking information to help power businesses is at the heart of Dow Jones’ mission,” said William Lewis, CEO of Dow Jones. “Our partnership with Curation Corporation will enable customers to go beyond the news to identify emerging competitors, industry trends and potential opportunities that may be entirely overlooked. With Curation Corporation, we are bringing industry insight, best in class technology and specialist monitoring together under one roof.”
“We are incredibly excited to be working with Dow Jones on this transformational venture. In an age where information is overwhelming, smarter monitoring solutions are needed to help business leaders save time, highlight opportunities and mitigate substantial risks. In partnership with Dow Jones, we believe we can establish one of the world’s best informed intelligence communities,” said Nick Finegold, CEO of Curation Corporation.
