The Jinfo webinar "Current awareness in 2020" discussed the steps information managers can take now to plan for future changes in service offerings. The last of three webinars in the Jinfo Research Focus "Define and manage value for current awareness", the webinar discussed the key factors involved in information managers understanding the service options available and designing plans for future capabilities.
What will current awareness services look like in the next few years? Jinfo's latest Community session set out to answer this question by looking at what information teams provide today, and what users can expect in the future. Technological trends may reduce some of the manual burdens, allowing information teams to focus on higher-value services. Participants discussed ways in which organisations can prepare for future technological changes and make their services more effective and cost-efficient.
Premium databases like Factiva and Nexis continue to account for a significant proportion of organisations' spending on current awareness provision, according to research by Jinfo. With decision-makers likely to query whether or not they still represent good value, a recent Jinfo webinar looked at how you can evaluate all aspects of your service to determine whether or not premium products still meet your business objectives.
A recent Jinfo webinar addressed the issue of how technological improvements are providing new ways of supporting information teams in providing current awareness services, including all-in-one platforms, content-agnostic platforms and ad-hoc solutions.

Prior to the session, participants completed a survey asking about the types of sources they currently use and the relative importance of different factors in choosing a new platform. This article looks at some of those factors and highlights some of the feedback received from participants.

As part of Jinfo's Research Focus, "Define and manage value for current awareness" , we surveyed 120 respondents across the world and across industries about their current awareness resources and services provided.
This report includes analysis of the survey in five sections:...
Jinfo's recent current awareness survey gathered information on current activities, priorities and organisational attitudes from respondents in order to study the category of news and the provision of current awareness services. Robin Neidorf, Jinfo's director of research, takes a look at the results and the key priorities and actions that the analysis highlights for those running information services.
We focus on satisfaction with premium products in this section of the analysis of our 2017 current awareness research, including Factiva and Nexis as well as a range of others named as primary product for current awareness.
This year's current awareness research also looks at the technology aspects of service provision, from the platforms themselves to the source materials that feed them and how these impact on self-service versus full provision. We also highlight the importance of different variables when selecting platforms.
With the advent of 24-hour news and social media, it's become even more important for businesses to stay current. There are now more outlets and channels to satisfy our desire for real-time information. Social media platforms that allow us to distribute and share content easily and speedily, also allow for commentary and engagement. Allowing this engagement and even fostering it, must be balanced with the challenges that are inherent with viewing news or information through a social lens.
