“News-derived data is a critical source of business intelligence for any professional, providing an unparalleled view of the past and present, and windows into the future,” said Traci Mabrey, general manager of Factiva at Dow Jones. “At a time when the threat of misinformation and disinformation is ever-present, every level of the organization needs easy access to high-quality, trustworthy news to guide their daily decisions. This is what led us to the strategic redesign of Factiva.”

A New Generation of Decision Makers is Ushering in Change

Digital first and technologically savvy, Millennials and Generation Z consume news differently from any other demographic—seeking instant access to a personalized view of fact-checked content from multiple sources and publications. As this generation progresses to management roles and the C-Suite, they will drive demand for innovative new tools and techniques to consume and digest business information, where convenience is at the core of the experience.

“The role of knowledge management has rapidly evolved—people expect an experience like that of their favorite app, while still requiring trusted, premium information,” said Mabrey. “Our goal is to be the leading news and business search engine for the decision makers of today and tomorrow. With Factiva, the next generation of leaders can leverage high-quality, trusted news to cut through the noise, and surface business-critical information.”
