Monitoring

Factiva powers best-in-class approach to monitoring disruptive trends across
multiple sectors

LONDON, Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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:

  o 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
  o Dow Jones Disruption Insight Radar -- curated weekly alerts on the world’s
    most important stories and why they are likely to impact your business
  o 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.
