Other articles, reports and reviews published since our last update include:  

  • A Mini Review of Figshare, in light of a future where researchers will increasingly have to make all of their data publicly available, Jinfo takes a look at this online digital repository that allows users to upload and share, for free, their research outputs
  • Steve Byngall looks at Slack, a collaboration tool which has achieved extraordinary growth, largely bypassing central enterprise collaboration teams, in his article "Supporting Enterprise Collaboration in a World Obsessed With Slack".

We recently reviewed Jinfo Consulting projects over the past few months and identified a common denominator in the way we have been able to deliver value:

Each of the information departments we worked with turned to Jinfo to support their ability to navigate organisational change, such as:

  • Reorganisation, resulting in information services being moved to a different part of the business
  • New leadership, causing upheaval in stakeholder relationships
  • Re-defined corporate strategy, offering the opportunity for information services to exert new influence and build stronger internal partnerships.

If your organisation is undergoing change, we can help. Our approach is practical and cost-efficient. You don't need a Jinfo Subscription to get started with Consulting.

Learn more about Jinfo Consulting services, and then contact us.

We publish research-based insights, facilitate peer-to-peer discussions on them, and offer consulting services to tailor those insights to your needs. Find the right Jinfo Subscription level to meet your needs.
