New Directions in the Delivery of Business News.
White, Martin
After a period of slow growth, companies that provide business news to the manager's desktop PC are now among the most rapidly growing companies in the United States information industry. Well established companies such as Desktop Data and Individual, Inc. are now being joined by a number of new services and by enhanced versions of existing services, as well as services based entirely on World Wide Web technology. The provision of profiled business news services is one of the high growth sectors in the United States online market. Some of the leading US-owned vendors are profiled in this paper, as well as emerging service operators in Europe. Some of the issues influencing the rate of adoption of these services in Europe are discussed, including database content; profiling procedures; delivery platform; pricing and billing; and marketing.
