As part of Jinfo's Research Focus, "Intelligence systems - beyond awareness to action", we present part two of our Jinfo current awareness survey in relation to the needs, preferences and goals of information professionals with regard to news content and current awareness provision.

It's been ten years since Jinfo first surveyed information professionals to find out about their needs, preferences and goals in relation to news content and current awareness provision. The project has evolved over time to factor in issues relating to the use of technology to improve workflow and enhance ROI, the balance of premium and non-cost sources, and what methods they were using to try and measure the value and impact of current awareness service provision. This article introduces the results from 2018's survey, including areas such as the provision of time and staff.
Keeping on top of the news on customers, competitors, suppliers and the business environment is an ever increasing challenge for information teams to enable their organisations to make informed and better decisions. Over the last 10 years, Jinfo has been observing the evolution of current awareness tools used for this task and following the development of the next generation of tools, which allow for much greater integration of content, user collaboration and variety of outputs, including dashboards and visualisation of data. This article explores the potential for greater customisation and improvements in the process.
