Northern Light and Xstracta Partner to Expand Discovery for Life Sciences Conference Abstracts Content and User Community

Northern Light announced a new partnership that will significantly expand the number of life sciences conference abstracts and posters currently contained within its Discovery research portal. The life sciences Discovery portal offers search and automated analysis of valuable content collections to help organizations conduct market research, technical research, and competitive intelligence. Working with Xstracta, Northern Light will offer to host an association's conference content for free. The hosted content will be made available to the association to search and link to from its own websites. The benefit to the association of this arrangement is that it will be relieved of the cost and hassle of hosting abstracts, posters, and multi-media objects. Also, as part of the arrangement, Northern Light will provide free access to the Discovery research portal to all of the association's members as a value-added member service. This access will be for the entire collection of abstracts and posters, not just those from the participating association. In exchange for the content hosting service and membership access to Discovery, Northern Light will incorporate that association's content into the commercial version of Northern Light Discovery that Northern Light licenses to its enterprise clients. The inclusion of an association's content in Discovery will give the association the added benefits of increased visibility of its conference content to the life sciences industry and increased traffic to its website. Northern Light and Xstracta project that their new collaboration with life sciences associations will potentially add tens of thousands of posters and other multi-media documents to the Discovery research portal. The initial group of associations participating in the Northern Light project will be announced in the first half of 2015.

Target CI is designed for competitive intelligence professionals who are under constant demand for information that is current, compelling, and useful. The solution combines Northern Light Business News(TM) and social media monitoring with Northern Light's business-driven search engine, advanced text analytics, and collaboration in a solution priced for competitive intelligence departments. Target CI contains Northern Light Business News, which aggregates 40,000 news articles per day from 5,700 business-focused sources, including newswires and industry authority blogs, for up-to-date information related to: Competitors' announcements, partnerships, and products; M & A activity that signals competitors' strategic intentions; Venture-funded companies that represent competitors' potential acquisition shopping list; New technology and disruptive events; Emerging markets and business trends; Industry authorities' commentary about a company, its market and competitors. In addition, CI professionals can automate alerts on topics of interest, and do one click analysis and drill downs on strategic topics surfaced by Northern Light's analytics engine, MI Analyst(TM), which automatically analyzes documents found in search results. MI Analyst can analyze documents using industry-specific concepts and concept categories as well as general business facets such as Company Names, Corporate Strategies, and Product Marketing Strategies. Distribution options offered in the portal include newsletters and RSS feeds. Using the newsletter tool, CI analysts can create newsletters with automated search alerts populating fields in the newsletters, and they can add their own editorial and commentary. In addition, any search can be saved as an alert, which creates a vertical topic feed that can then be distributed using RSS to any enterprise intranet site.
