Is your current awareness portfolio centred on one or two premium subscriptions or are you capturing niche providers? Find out how current awareness is evolving and how to keep up.


The odds are that you use a big news aggregator like Factiva or Nexis if you provide current awareness services. But according to our 2018 survey results, you're just as likely to have individual subscriptions to key publications and sources as well.

Our survey respondents also showed intense interest in how to use artificial intelligence and smart technology, whether to move to an intelligence system, and how to meet their users' demands for highly customised - but still easy to use - systems.

Jinfo's Insights and Actions report for our Research Focus, "Intelligence systems - beyond awareness to action", explores all of these questions.

Insights and Actions reports give you a taste of Jinfo, but the real value lies in the full range of articles, reports, webinars, and Community sessions you get with a Jinfo Subscription.
