InfoDesk and LexisNexis Announce Complimentary Corporate Intelligence Webinar
InfoDesk and LexisNexis to sponsor content curation and distribution webinar October 1

InfoDesk and LexisNexis, in cooperation with the Special Libraries Association’s Pharmaceutical & Health Technology (PHT) Division, will sponsor a complimentary webinar, “The Modern Rules of Content Curation and Distribution” on Tuesday, October 1 at 12:00 p.m. EDT.  Learn more and register online.

The webinar is designed to help business communications professionals understand and meet the content curation, media monitoring and distribution challenges caused by recent changes in the content market.  It will also focus on the explosion of non-traditional and alternative content. It is created specifically for corporate communications, brand management and other institutional information professionals responsible for corporate intelligence, competitive intelligence and knowledge management.

It will feature distinguished guest speaker, Michael Stelzer, a consultant and the former Director of the Center for Business Knowledge with Ernst & Young for more than 23 years.  Stelzer will discuss the content curation and distribution challenges and opportunities that companies and other organizations face today.  He will emphasize steps they can take to best leverage their content, technology and human assets to create real competitive advantages.

“Companies spend a ton of money of content, as well as on the technology to deliver to it,” Stelzer said.  “Unfortunately, many companies still have not figured out how to effectively curate and deliver relevant daily intelligence in a way that actually fits with their employees’ work habits.”  This disconnect, Stelzer added, is costing organizations  “untold millions” in wasted time, decreased productivity, poor decisions and increased risk.

During the webinar, Stelzer will share his perspective—based on his more than 30-years of high-level industry experience—on the how the rules for content curation and distribution have changed and what companies need to do to compete effectively in the new environment.

“Even in this age of information, many companies and other large organizations struggle mightily to keep their employees informed,” said Stelzer. “They face a series of complex challenges, including the cost of quality content, the torrents of free content and getting the mix right, plus a myriad of technology,  access and licensing issues.”

In the Webinar, Stelzer will focus specifically on the new rules for leveraging content assets for maximum value in this changing environment, as well on finding the right technology and creating winning results.

“To be sure, creating and delivering valuable corporate intelligence is difficult, but it’s not impossible,” he said, adding, “New content options, new tools and new technologies are putting it within reach of companies and organizations both large and small.”

Stelzer is currently President of Knowledge Management Services & Associates, an information consulting firm based in Ohio.

InfoDesk Realigns Its Business Intelligence Solutions
InfoDesk to Focus on Corporate Intelligence, Competitive Intelligence and Pharma Intelligence Solutions

InfoDesk has realigned its Business Intelligence (BI) Solutions to meet the rapidly changing information needs of corporate communications, brand management and other institutional information professionals. InfoDesk will refocus its development efforts in three primary areas: Corporate Intelligence Solutions, Competitive Intelligence Solutions and Pharma Intelligence Solutions.

"Right now, the world of business information is like the wild, wild west," said Lynn Epstein, InfoDesk COO. "In the last few years, the explosion of non-traditional and alternative content has created some very real media monitoring, content curation and distribution challenges for business communications professionals.”

InfoDesk's Business Intelligence Solutions meet these challenges head on, dramatically simplifying the process of content curation and distribution, according to Epstein. All of InfoDesk’s BI Solutions offer more content options, better content curation tools, off-the shelf dashboards, interactive corporate newsletters, and outsourced managed news summaries, as well as host of other highly customizable BI solutions.

Corporate Intelligence Solutions

InfoDesk’s Corporate Intelligence Solutions are designed to meet the day-to-day business news and information gathering and dissemination needs of business communications professionals, including public relations, media relations, corporate communications and public affairs specialists.

Unlike other solutions, InfoDesk is not an information seller. Instead, InfoDesk is “content neutral,” allowing it to integrate any type of content from any source or provider all on the same platform. Additionally, InfoDesk offers a variety of easy-to-use media monitoring, content curation and distribution tools.

“This is a huge time saver for our clients,” said Epstein. “Our customers can manage all of their content resources—free, paid, aggregated and even social media—all in one workflow.” To learn more, please read “6 Signs Your Company Needs Better Corporate Intelligence Solutions” on the InfoDesk Blog.

Competitive Intelligence Solutions

InfoDesk’s Competitive Intelligence (CI) Solutions focus on the external business environment. They are designed to effectively analyze and distribute intelligence about products, customers, competitors and any aspect of the business environment needed to support strategic decision making.

Built on the same content neutral technology, common implementations of CI Solutions include corporate intelligence dashboards, interactive email newsletters, social media monitoring options, Widgets and newsletter archives.

In addition to CI tools and technology, InfoDesk employs a staff of highly experienced information professionals and editors who gather, write and distribute Managed News Summaries (MNS). To learn more about MNS, click here to download a 6-page sample CI Brief.

Pharma Intelligence Solutions

For more than a decade, InfoDesk has been recognized leader in the pharmaceutical intelligence sector, with many of the top pharma companies as clients. “Big pharma consumes a ton of information and is extremely competitive,” said Epstein. “It’s no wonder so many pharma companies are ahead of the curve when it comes to BI solutions.”

Earlier this year InfoDesk launched its new PharmaIntelligence platform, which provides a whole new approach to integrating, filtering, analyzing and sharing critical biomedical intelligence. Unlike other solutions, InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence allows users to combine and analyze virtually any type of pharmaceutical information, including pipeline data, clinical trials, patent information and more.

Also introduced this year, PipelinePlus is the first module of the InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence platform. PipelinePlus is the breakthrough solution from InfoDesk that makes it easy to manage multiple drug pipeline resources–including ALL your licensed pipeline products AND internal data sources–simultaneously.

InfoDesk Streamlines InfoWatch Corporate Intelligence Dashboard
Off-the-shelf InfoWatch Dashboard makes keeping up with corporate news and competitor intelligence faster and easier than ever

InfoDesk has streamlined its InfoWatch solution to offer off-the-shelf, corporate news and competitor intelligence dashboards that can deploy in a matter of weeks. The newly redesigned InfoWatch Dashboard features custom-branded template designs that offer a wide variety of “plug-and-play” content options including aggregated intelligence from both free and paid sources, top industry and competitor news, trade publications and newspapers, social media feeds, stock widgets and more. Watch the 1-minute video “Does your corporate intelligence need a makeover?”

“Until now, all of our corporate intelligence solutions have been customized, said Lynn Epstein, COO of InfoDesk. “Now, we’ve created a standardized dashboard that puts all of the current information companies want, all in one place.”

One of the biggest problems organizations face when it comes to monitoring and sharing corporate news and competitive intelligence is that it's scattered, siloed and comes from an ever-growing variety of sources. Every day, millions of professionals spend hours cobbling together patchwork intelligence from emails, news and trade publications, Web sites, databases, social media apps, multimedia and more.

The new InfoWatch Dashboard puts all of an organization’s most-used information resources in one place. Users can find all their industry and company news, trade publications, newspapers and press releases – all filtered just for them and all in one place. InfoWatch Dashboards also feature social media, competitor news, stock quotes and industry trends.

“We’ve streamlined our implementation process considerably by standardizing many of the content and display options,” said Epstein. Thus, she added, InfoWatch Dashboards can still easily be tailored to meet an organization’s information needs, “but now we can usually deploy a new dashboard in just a couple weeks.”

The new dashboards also come with easy-to-use administrator tools that allow the information and communications professionals to edit their taxonomy on the fly, manage alerts and create and send email newsletters quickly and easily.

“Our new InfoWatch Dashboards not only help communications and information professionals do their jobs better,” said Epstein. “These dashboards help everyone in the company keep up with the latest business news and information they need to succeed.”

InfoDesk Releases Drug Pipeline Database Usage Survey Results
InfoDesk survey reveals the hidden costs of drug pipeline research in the pharmaceutical industry

The pharmaceutical industry needs simpler and more cost-effective way of conducting complex drug pipeline research across multiple databases, including internal data, according to a recent white paper from InfoDesk. As a corollary, the white paper foresees a continuing demand for information professionals with drug pipeline research expertise.

The white paper’s findings are based on InfoDesk’s survey of members of the Special Libraries Association’s Pharmaceutical and Health Technology (PHT) Division about their drug pipeline data management and research.

InfoDesk asked PHT members, particularly employees, contractors and consultants of pharmaceutical companies who are responsible for using commercial and/or internal drug pipeline databases on a regular basis to complete a short survey. The survey asked what types of research they are doing, what resources they use, and how much time they are spending on drug pipeline data searches.

An article about the results by Sean Smith, Vice President of Marketing at InfoDesk will be published next week in CapLits, the PHT Division newsletter. To make the article available to a wider audience, InfoDesk has republished the article as a white paper available for download online.

“Aside from revealing just how time-consuming drug pipeline research can be,” said Sterling Stites, CEO of InfoDesk, “one of the most interesting findings was how few of the respondents said they are using internal data sources as part of their analyses.” According to Stites, this points one of the biggest problems for pharmaceutical companies: “Much of the commercial data remain heavily siloed, and therefore, very hard to integrate with internal knowledge.”

As the survey results suggest, the net result is that drug pipeline data management and research is a very costly and time-consuming proposition. Further, the time and skill required to conduct drug pipeline research limits many companies’ ability to conduct pipeline and corporate research, monitor competitor activity and analyze pipeline performance.

“Ultimately,” said Stites, “all of this can only hamper drug development—and that’s not good for anyone.”

To remedy this, InfoDesk recently introduced PipelinePlus, the first module of the InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence platform. PipelinePlus is a solution that will make it much easier for information professionals to simultaneously manage multiple drug pipeline resources–including ALL licensed pipeline products and internal data sources. Learn more about PipelinePlus.

The InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence platform is a whole new approach to integrating, filtering, analyzing and sharing critical biomedical intelligence. Unlike other solutions, InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence is wholly “content neutral,” allowing users to combine and analyze virtually any type of pharmaceutical information, including pipeline data, clinical trials, patent information and more.

Tiki Archambeau Joins InfoDesk Competitive Intelligence Team

Former Dow Jones Managed News Summary content strategist Archambeau will spearhead new InfoMonitor business development at InfoDesk

InfoDesk has announced that Tiki Archambeau, a content strategy expert and former manager for Dow Jones and Generate, Inc., has joined InfoDesk as Director of Editorial Services. Archambeau, an award-winning leader of Factiva’s Managed News Summary (MNS) business, will lead business development efforts for InfoMonitor and its other competitive intelligence, news and media monitoring solutions for Fortune 500 companies.

Download a complimentary InfoMonitor Sample Brief.

“With Fortune 500 companies running leaner than ever, the demand for interactive, highly targeted business information that is accessible on a variety of devices has never been greater,” said Sterling Stites, CEO of InfoDesk. “Archambeau’s expertise and experience developing aggregated news-based MNS for diverse verticals, especially in business consulting and financial services sectors is the perfect complement to InfoDesk’s custom competitive intelligence services,” Stites added.

InfoDesk offers a suite of cutting-edge competitive intelligence, news and media monitoring solutions and editorial services, including executive briefings, dashboards and interactive email newsletters to help corporate and government clients distribute relevant news and competitive intelligence internally.

Archambeau will focus primarily on developing new business verticals for InfoMonitor and related competitive intelligence services. InfoMonitor provides daily custom competitive intelligence briefings and news clipping services to corporations and government agencies. InfoDesk's state-of-the-art technology combined with professional editor's review results in a service that scours thousands of news sources and delivers only the most relevant clips without redundancy.

“Up until now, InfoDesk has focused primarily on the top pharmaceutical and government information markets, where demand has been the greatest,” Stites noted. Now that other top companies are recognizing the business value of custom curated content, “We think they’ll find our services are far superior in terms of content options, technology, editorial expertise and workflow adaptability.”

“Archambeau’s background developing custom content solutions,” said Stites, “will help us meet the specific needs and requirements of these new markets.”

“We are indeed pleased to have Archambeau join us,” Stites said.

Archambeau is a seasoned content strategy expert with a proven track record in business intelligence. Tapped in 2007 from Thomson Reuters to launch a new product line for Generate, Inc., Archambeau quickly expanded their portfolio of clients.

His efforts contributed to the acquisition of Generate by Dow Jones, where he subsequently managed editorial teams on three continents and offered top-tier customer service to Fortune 500 C-Suite executives and consultants around the globe.

In 2011 Archambeau’s efforts won him the Dow Jones Leadership Award in recognition as the first in his Factiva business group to develop business opportunities in the AsiaPacific region.

In making the announcement, Stites also noted that providing corporate decision makers with access to current information is critical to maintaining competitive advantage and, “smart companies are now looking for more than just the latest technology, they are also demanding industry-specific knowledge and experience curating content for and about their businesses.”

To help introduce InfoMonitor, InfoDesk is offering complimentary sample briefs and demos.

InfoDesk will unveil several of its newest pharmaceutical competitive intelligence (CI) workflow solutions at the 2013 Spring Meeting of the Pharmaceutical & Health Technology (PHT) and BIO Divisions of the Special Libraries Association (SLA) in Philadelphia, April 14-16. The new CI workflow solutions include the InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence platform, custom CI briefs, and new CI Dashboards and iWidgets.

“One thing pharmaceutical companies don't lack is information,” said Sterling Stites, CEO of InfoDesk. "What most of them do lack,” he added, “is a single platform capable of integrating all types of content, both internal and external, that allows them to organize, search and share company specific intelligence in meaningful ways.”

At the 2013 Spring Meeting, InfoDesk will be introducing the InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence platform— a whole new approach to integrating, filtering, analyzing and sharing critical biomedical intelligence. Unlike other solutions, InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence is wholly “content neutral,” allowing users to combine and analyze virtually any type of pharmaceutical information, including pipeline data, clinical trials, patent information and more.

"Think of InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence as a vast, blank white board—a veritable tabula rasa that can integrate virtually any sort of internal or external content,” said Stites. “InfoDesk then ensures that all the content is properly formatted, tagged, mapped and indexed, providing sophisticated tools and solutions so that content can be organized, surfaced and shared quickly and easily.”

InfoDesk will provide live demonstrations of PipelinePlus, the first module of the InfoDesk PharmaIntelligence platform. PipelinePlus is the breakthrough solution from InfoDesk that makes it easy to manage multiple drug pipeline resources–including ALL licensed pipeline products AND internal data sources–simultaneously.

InfoDesk Introduces Newsletter Archive iWidget
New iWidget helps organizations archive and manage internal newsletters in the cloud

InfoDesk has developed an innovative Newsletter Archive iWidget, a content integration tool specifically designed to help organizations archive, store and search their internal newsletters and briefings more easily. Released this week, the Newsletter Archive iWidget automates internal newsletter archiving and management without taxing company IT resources. Request an online Newsletter Archive iWidget demo.

“Every day companies and other organizations are creating and sending more and more internal newsletters on a wide range of topics, everything from daily industry and company news to competitor updates, product news, and more,” said Sterling Stites, CEO of InfoDesk. “What happens to all these newsletters once they are sent?” said Stites. “Well, in most cases, the answer is nothing.” The new iWidget is designed to solve this problem.

According to Stites, even top multinational corporations have no centralized way to effectively manage and archive their corporate communications. Nor are most IT departments particularly interested in developing a solution or storing the newsletters. Consequently, employees are saving countless newsletters to their personal email folders, clogging email servers, “just in case” they might want to read something again in the future.

The new InfoDesk Newsletter Archive iWidget is an easy-to-deploy newsletter archiving tool that can be hosted by InfoDesk or deployed within a customer's own portal, such as SharePoint. The iWidget makes it easy for the HTML newsletters to be published and displayed on either a portal page or a web page. Additionally, each posted newsletter automatically creates an archive link (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.), providing easy access to archived content. Also, since InfoDesk archives the newsletters in the cloud, there is no need for internal IT departments to find a server and build a display mechanism.

The Newsletter Archive iWidget is just one of many InfoDesk iWidgets created to help organizations integrate content and facilitate access. Other types of InfoDesk iWidgets include, headline news, stock and search tools, to name a few. Additionally, InfoDesk provides sophisticated turnkey portal solutions to help clients meet all their content integration needs.

To help introduce Newsletter Archive iWidget, InfoDesk is offering complimentary online iWidget demos upon request.

InfoDesk expands editorial team to meet growing demand for corporate and government briefings
Intelligence outsourcing trend spurs need for skilled information professionals

InfoDesk has announced it will continue to expand its editorial services team in 2013 to support InfoMonitor and AgencyWatch, its newly-launched competitive and government intelligence, news and media monitoring solutions.

“Not long ago, nearly every company or government agency had one or more librarians on staff to make sure their employees had access to the specialized information they needed,” said Sterling Stites, CEO of InfoDesk. “With the rise of the Internet, changing information usage patterns and an ever-increasing demand for on-demand content, many organizations have cut back their information professional teams—some to almost nothing,” said Stites.

For more than a decade, InfoDesk has been providing tools and technology to corporate and government clients to help them manage and distribute news and competitive intelligence internally. Several years ago InfoDesk began offering custom editorial services to help its clients augment their news and competitive intelligence efforts.

“Since 2010 InfoDesk has been steadily building a robust team of highly experienced, MLS-credentialed information professionals to service the needs of our corporate and government clients,” said Stites. “There simply is no technology that can possibly substitute for the years of training, education and experience these highly skilled research professionals have to offer.”

Last year InfoDesk launched InfoMonitor, a custom-edited daily news and media monitoring service designed to meet the most exacting needs of its corporate clients. This year, InfoDesk launched AgencyWatch, a new, once-daily government intelligence, news and media monitoring service designed specifically to meet the changing information needs and demands of government leaders.

Both InfoMonitor and AgencyWatch depend on the skills and experience of the editorial team. Team members work closely with clients at every stage of the process to help analyze information needs, identify and recommend the most appropriate information resources, and develop complex search queries to filter information effectively. Monitoring a wide array of specialized content sources, the team sifts through countless news reports to identify, select and summarize the most relevant information and deliver it every work day at a client-selected time.

“The value that our editorial team adds for our corporate and government clients is immeasurable,” said Stites. Many corporations and government agencies no longer have the internal bandwidth in-house to keep pace with the deluge of information, he said, adding, “With the help of our editorial team, InfoDesk is stepping up to provide a variety of truly bespoke information solutions.”

To introduce InfoMonitor and AgencyWatch, InfoDesk will be offering online demonstrations for groups and individuals as well as complimentary sample briefings upon request. For more information visit infodesk.com or call 914-798-5940914-798-5940 (US) or +44 (0) 20-8350-3398+44 (0) 20-8350-3398 (UK).

InfoDesk Raises the Bar on Custom Government News Briefings
InfoDesk introduces AgencyWatch--Government intelligence made easy

InfoDesk has announced the launch of AgencyWatch, a new once-daily government intelligence, news and media monitoring service designed specifically to meet the changing information needs and demands of government leaders. Download a complimentary 7-page AgencyWatch Sample Briefing.

“Most government agencies are still relying on 1990’s technology to get the information they must have each and every day,” said Sterling Stites, CEO of InfoDesk. “With AgencyWatch they not only get comprehensive, professionally-gathered and edited daily news briefings each morning,” said Stites, “they also get interactive features that measurably increase the value of the intelligence by allowing users ‘to highlight, rate and share’ relevant content with one another from any device.”

InfoDesk has been providing news and competitive intelligence services to corporate and government clients for more than a decade and is widely recognized for its unique “content neutral” information services, which allow organizations to integrate, filter and share the widest array of content quickly and easily.

Last year InfoDesk launched InfoMonitor, a custom daily news and media monitoring services designed to meet the most exacting needs of corporate clients, particularly those in the competitive pharmaceutical sector.

Our corporate clients came to us to develop fully customer-branded internal news briefings with all the bells and whistles they would expect from any major news outlet,” said Stites. "These clients came to us because they wanted it all—professionally edited summaries of all the relevant news from all the important sources, including subscription content, delivered and formatted for maximum usability and professionalism.”

Like InfoMonitor, AgencyWatch relies on InfoDesk’s editorial team and “content neutral” platform to ingest and filter the broadest array of content sources, select and summarize all major developments, and provide copyright-compliant links to original articles.

“InfoDesk simply blew away the competitors,” said one pharmaceutical client when asked why InfoMonitor had won their recent RFP. The client added that the quality of InfoMonitor was much higher than purely technology-based news aggregation services, plus it offered more content choices and attractive, customizable templates that included interactive article rating features and sharing options. “InfoMonitor was hands-down a better service than the rest,” he said.

Like InfoMonitor, AgencyWatch helps top decision makers stay ahead of the curve by giving them the latest and most relevant news and information they need to do their jobs.

InfoDesk’s dedicated AgencyWatch team is comprised of seasoned MLS-credentialed information professionals and other researchers, who have the skills and experience to monitor a wide array of specialized content sources, sift through countless news reports to identify, select and summarize the most relevant information every work day by a client-selected time. Also, AgencyWatch updates are available in a variety of formats, making client access simple and easy via email, information portal and RSS delivery.

To introduce AgencyWatch, InfoDesk will be offering 30-minute, web-based AgencyWatch power demos for groups and individuals and complimentary 7-page AgencyWatch Sample Briefings upon request.

“Many librarians and information professionals are now finding themselves in the uncomfortable position having to compete for the attention of their audience,” said Smith, adding that his presentation will focus on the tools information professionals can use to win that competition.

According to Smith, corporate and other special librarians face a threefold marketing challenge. The first is how to compete effectively for readership and mindshare. The second is how to sustain and drive usage of information resources. The third is how to demonstrate their own value and show ROI.

“This session,” Smith said, “will examine all three challenges and the best ways to meet them.”

Further, he said, “Many information professionals are unsure about how to market themselves effectively—either inside or outside of their organizations.”

This is the first session in a full day of non-stop professional development webinars. Registration is free for SLA members! Attendees are welcome drop-in and out of sessions throughout the day.

Other Winter Virtual Conference topics will include: OpenBEL, Data Management and Laboratory Notebooks, Framework Fight Club, Converse with People to Gain Real-Time Intelligence, LinkedIn: A thirty-minute makeover, Perspectives on Information Professionals: 2012 going into 2013. Other guest speakers include William Hayes, SVP, Selventa, Sean Campbell, Co-owner, Cascade Insights and Deb Hunt, President-Elect, SLA.

The complimentary webinar series is designed to help life science industry executives, information professionals, CI practitioners and other information stakeholders better understand how to leverage information into a sustained competitive advantage in a changing landscape.

“Finding ways to grow is an imperative for all companies, and executives have found that being innovative with information can transform information from a cost center to a growth engine,” said Alexander Feng, PHT Chair. “This series will highlight some of the best practices for capitalizing on existing information to drive growth in the pharma and life sciences industries.”

The schedule for the series is as follows:

"The best thing is, much of the knowledge may already exist," said Feng. "Knowing what exists, what doesn’t, and how to ‘connect the dots’ is often the secret sauce to leading organizations."

"Ultimately, it's about driving results," said Feng, adding that the Webinar series focuses on "harnessing the power of information—in ways that competitors do not—to take a giant leap forward."

A complete listing of all four webinars, including topics, speakers and registration is available online.

InfoDesk Announces Free Medtech CI Webinar:
Competitive Intelligence for Medical Device Professionals

Free webinar will be held on Tuesday, October 9 at 2:00 pm Eastern time. Register online.

InfoDesk will present a complimentary Medtech CI Webinar, “Competitive Intelligence for Medical Device Professionals” on Tuesday, October 9 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. The one-hour Webinar will feature two distinguished guest speakers, David Cassak and Alexander Feng, discussing the key to understanding, gathering and disseminating actionable medical device competitive intelligence (CI). Register online.

Medtech CI Webinar October 9, 2012

The Webinar is designed to help medical device professionals keep up with (and efficiently communicate and share) the latest news and developments that affect their business. It is created specifically for executives, CI, information and other medical device professionals who rely on a wide range of information resources to make informed strategic decisions.

CI is a process for gathering relevant information about the external business environment and turning it into intelligence that informs strategic business decisions.

“As a publisher I've seen firsthand the powerful impact CI can have on device companies, says featured speaker Cassak, a veteran medical device publisher. “Done right,” he added, “CI greatly improves a company's ability to spot opportunities and avoid serious pitfalls.”

For more than 20 years Cassak has been evaluating and writing articles about medical device companies for publications such as IN VIVO and Start Up. In that capacity, he has interviewed countless device executives, entrepreneurs and investors.

“I've seen small companies launch new technologies that make millions,” he says, adding, “on the other hand, I’ve also seen device giants nearly driven into the ground by recalls, lawsuits, regulatory actions and fines,” the difference says Cassak, more times than not, “is good CI.”

Cassak is Managing Director, Medical Devices at Windhover Information, a unit of Elsevier Business Intelligence (EBI).

Feng, the second featured speaker, agrees with Cassak.

“In medical devices, being able to gain that extra edge is often the difference between market success and failure, between hitting that revenue number or not,” he says. Feng is Director of Strategic Research at the dd+p group and Chair, Pharmaceutical & Health Technologies Division (PHT) of the Special Libraries Association (SLA).

CI, Feng says, can give a company that extra edge.

“Our experience is that, in many device companies, gaining that extra edge may not be difficult either, especially in the area of competitive intelligence and information,” says Feng, adding,

“Through a small tweak or process change, we’ve found it easy to change inefficiencies from a liability to a strength.”

As an information consultant and former Information Manager with Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company, Feng has first-hand knowledge of the types competitive intelligence challenges medical device companies face, including budget, staffing, information resources, technology and workflow. Feng will share valuable tips on how device companies can improve their methods of gathering and disseminating actionable medical device competitive intelligence. This is a chance to learn best practices from his deep experience in medical devices.

InfoDesk Debuts New Editorial Services

Tarrytown, NY, May 31, 2011 - InfoDesk (www.infodesk.com) today announced its new Editorial Services Division that offers custom daily newsletters, briefings and special reports to corporate, government and association customers. InfoDesk has put together a team of seasoned information professionals to publish custom daily newsletters, briefings and special reports. The service is designed to meet the acute need for highly specialized daily information by corporations, government agencies and associations.

“Despite huge investments in content and technology, end users are buried in information options. What they are not getting is a succinct daily email that tells them what they need to know about their business,” said Lynn Epstein, COO of InfoDesk.

As outlined in a new InfoDesk White Paper about custom content, information professionals and users are clamoring for daily content that is:

> Created exclusively for the reader and focused on a single topic.

> Delivered to any computer or mobile device before the start of business.

> Comprehensive, covering all major news sources, niche publications and relevant multi-media and social media outlets.

> Easily digestible with headlines, quick summaries and links to full-text articles.

> Always on-point and not redundant.

“Cutbacks have left many information professionals short on staff and on time,” said Sterling Stites, President and CEO of InfoDesk. “Most large organizations simply cannot produce their own custom daily content,” he said, adding, “Unfortunately, that often leaves their employees to fend for themselves; ultimately costing these companies untold $ millions in wasted search time and missed opportunities.”

Other information services such as news clipping services, media monitoring companies and even some PR companies attempt to provide custom daily news. The difference with InfoDesk Editorial Services is the combination of its technology and a team of seasoned information professionals who selects relevant stories chosen from carefully screened sources.

InfoDesk also works with its clients to analyze their information needs and create a plan that defines their audience, list of sources, topics and keywords. The result is a living document that can be refined and adjusted to meet changing information or client needs.

Many information professionals in the life sciences industry and government find this service indispensible. It has increased information usage dramatically by pushing the news that matters directly to hundreds and even thousands of daily email recipients. “These days there is so much out there competing for users attention, if you don’t tell people what to read, chances are they’ll never see it,” said Stites.

InfoDesk will release their new White Paper at the annual meeting of the Special Libraries Association (SLA) in Philadelphia, June 12-15. The White Paper is entitled “The New Rules of Custom Content for Information Professionals—How to Create Awesome (not Meh) News Alerts, Briefings and Newsletters.” To get a copy of the White Paper please visit the InfoDesk (Booth 1031) at SLA or contact Lynn Epstein at 914-332-5940914-332-5940 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Advanced queries and custom taxonomies continuously filter and feed email alerts, briefings and newsletters and replicate content instantly to portals, intranets, widgets and other work flow tools.

Stites credited the win to InfoDesk’s firm commitment to remaining a “content neutral” technology company. “That’s how we have been able to build one of the largest, most responsive information provider networks in the industry. It’s our network, along with our technology solutions, that allows us to integrate more content resources faster and more cost effectively,” explained Stites.

“For our customers, who include a number of leading multinational corporations and top government agencies, InfoDesk Solutions have been a revelation,” said Stites. “Many of them had just gotten used to going to dozens of sources and web sites to find the information they need."

"With InfoDesk Solutions, that is no longer necessary. We provide true, one-stop information portals—that can run on their technology or ours— and we even deliver the information right to their users,” Stites added.

SIIA President called the awards "a prolific testament to the power of technology to deliver innovative solutions to businesses and consumers" adding that the innovation shown by the award winners and nominees, "is essential for continuing America's leadership in the global knowledge economy."

InfoDesk Releases Cloud Computing Solutions for the Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences Industries

Tarrytown, NY, April 9, 2010 - InfoDesk announced today that it will introduce its next generation "Cloud Computing" content management solutions for the pharmaceutical, biotech and life science industries on Sunday, April 11, at the Spring meeting in Philadelphia of the Pharmaceutical and Health Technology Division (P&HT) of the Special Libraries Association.

"Cloud Computing," also known as "Platform as a Service (PaaS)," can facilitate deployment of applications without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software layers.

Cloud Computing, is simply Web-based computing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices on-demand.

"Few pharmaceutical companies have anywhere near the information staff or resources they need to manage their vast information resources effectively on their own and the job is only getting harder," said Lynn Epstein , COO at InfoDesk. "InfoDesk's 'cloud solutions' offer several affordable, off-the-shelf options that can dramatically ease their information integration and distribution burden," Epstein added.

Two of those solutions, InfoViewer and InfoWatch, allow clients to better keep tabs on all the latest life science industry news, including drug pipeline development, Food and Drug Administration regulation, mergers and acquisition, and the increasingly global competitive environment. Both solutions consolidate companies' premium and open-source content resources into a single stream of federated, filtered and easily searchable real-time content. Breakthrough taxonomy, publishing, Web interface and portal options help information professionals to service their entire organization's information needs better. Both InfoViewer andInfoWatch include a variety of useful tools such as automated email alerts and custom briefings, further enhancing awareness and decision making.

"By using InfoDesk, a task that had previously taken several hours each day can now be completed in a fraction of the time and in a manner that provides a better, more professional, and more useful product," said Helen Kourlas, Manager, Drug Information & Pharmacogenomics at Medco.

Catherine Wagner, an independent information consultant, said that InfoDesk products are both a time and money saver for both her and her clients.

"InfoDesk filters out a lot of the 'noise' so I can click on search strategies and get a refined list of information," Wagner said. "My clients know I'm using a premium service to get them the information they need so they don't have to wade through a lot of extraneous content."

Demonstrations and additional product information will be available from InfoDesk at the P&HT meeting (Bordeaux Room, Table 8). Or contact Sean Smith, Director of Marketing at 202-365-6832202-365-6832 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
