Factiva Expands Content To Deliver More Global Sources, Blogs And Images

NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on its commitment to deliver the sources that influence business, Factiva has expanded its aggregated content to offer more global sources, blogs and images. In the last year, Factiva's content has increased by more than 20 percent, totaling more than 35,000 sources and furthering its position as one of the largest global digital business aggregators and archives. The new sources comprise 1,500 licensed publications, 1,600 websites, nearly 8,000 blogs and more than 1.2 million images, covering 26 languages.

"As a global news organization, we understand the sources that matter; these content additions provide our customers with the most pertinent market expertise and local intelligence," said Factiva's content guru, Anthony Capon, vice president of content, Dow Jones & Company.

"This is business search at its best," said David Chivers, vice president of product, Dow Jones & Company. "Factiva's traditional and social content collection offers the right mix of credible regional, national and global business news and information, and 60 percent of its key sources are not accessible via common search engines. We find clients are increasingly mapping Factiva derived market intelligence to their own knowledge and data to gain new insights and connect the dots in their business."

Content highlights include:

  • Americas: More than 600 titles were added from the U.S., Brazil, Mexico and Canada including CNN Wire, American City Business Journals, Wall Street Journal video clips, AP Photostream images, Carta Capital and Finsat News Feed, as well as 100 regional newspapers from Sun Media Corporation, including The Ottawa Sun.
  • Asia-Pacific: Nearly 500 sources were added across nine countries with a focus on Australia, China, India and Japan. One hundred eighty-five sources were added from Australia, 153 from India, 70 from Greater China and 53 from Japan. Titles from this region include Time Weekly from China, Reuters Hong Kong, nine local print editions of The Times of India, and The Wall Street Journal Online, Japan Edition.
  • Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA): Nearly 480 new sources were added for the EMEA region. Among those, 100 were from Russia, 40 from Germany, 90 from the U.K., 100 from France and 70 from the Middle East. Content from Italy, including ADN Kronos, was added as well as sources from Spain, Benelux, Poland, Portugal and Africa.

Factiva's collection of the world's top media outlets helps users to better monitor the markets, industries, companies and regions they deal with every day to uncover opportunities first.
