Content and data product licensing is an area beset by misconceptions, with many failing to grasp that when you pay for data, you're paying for usage within defined terms rather than ownership of data. How well you can negotiate those terms can benefit your organisation greatly, or affect it negatively. Here, Jinfo explains the key factors to bear in mind when approaching data licensing.
A product in the portfolio from the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), RightFind Business Intelligence is aimed at library content managers, providing them with analytical tools to generate insights on content usage and spending, and budgeting tools to turn those insights into data-driven content investment plans. This mini review looks at the company and product and finds out who uses it and how it's used as well as looking at the competitive environment.
A Jinfo product review isn't there to take the place of hands-on testing within an organisation, but it should help establish whether a product is worth an in-house review. Scott Vine looks at how the Centre of Excellence approach can be used as an integral part of that in-house evaluation.
If you are liaising with suppliers on a regular basis then you need to read our article on using Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) techniques. We look at how it's defined and outline five key benefits of adding SRM to your licensing approach when dealing with high-value relationships.
Jinfo has consistently highlighted the importance of setting a strategy to support the organisation and manage risks and opportunities but if it isn't implemented in the right way it will be ineffective. This article looks at the important role of information centre staff in communicating and developing a strategic plan and what practical steps you can take within your own organisation to bring this about.
The enterprise subscription model will be familiar to anyone responsible for negotiating subscription agreements with vendors of digital content. Whilst it may be convenient, it can also become very costly. This article looks at why vendors are so keen on the enterprise model and how you can make it work for you, particularly if you work in a mid-sized organisation.
It can be difficult to determine the monetary value of content as many factors come into play, including the objectives of the user, and the wider organisation and usage statistics only tell part of the story. This article looks at how to create a balanced and value-focused content portfolio with a particular focus on organisational objectives and provides practical next steps to help you focus your thinking on portfolio management.
Every year since 2007, Jinfo has been surveying its customers about their preferences in relation to news aggregation services and current awareness. This year's survey results reveal how current awareness and intelligence systems are managed and deployed throughout the organisation.
As part of our survey results looking at customer preferences in relation to news aggregation services and current awareness, we wanted to get a clearer view of how the provision of current awareness is changing and what respondents and their stakeholders want to get out of it. In this final part, we take a closer look at which activities they engage in with regard to the provision of current awareness and intelligence, how they track to measure the reach and value of current awareness, and its perceived importance within the organisation.
In addition to gathering information about how information teams think about current awareness overall, we use our annual survey to gauge satisfaction with primary suppliers. In the third part of our survey results looking at customer preferences in relation to news aggregation services and current awareness, we look at customer satisfaction with primary suppliers of current awareness solutions such as Nexis.com and Dow Jones' Factiva.
In the second part of our survey results looking at customer preferences in relation to news aggregation services and current awareness, we look at which components are part of the provision of current awareness to an organisation and any premium products licensed for current awareness. In addition, we examine no-cost sources used, such as competitor websites and social media, as well as content aggregation platforms.
Jinfo has been surveying its customers about their preferences in relation to news aggregation services and current awareness since 2007 and our latest research brings a fresh perspective to this area. In this first part, we look at some of the organisations who took part in the survey, where and how current awareness and intelligence systems are managed and deployed throughout the organisation, and how much time is taken up with providing this service.
In the final part of our report on Jinfo's research on discovery tools and priorities and the adoption of technology for finding content, we focus more specifically on the application of smart technologies to surface insights. We highlight some of the more popular databases used by respondents and how well they meet their needs.
