Dialog Announces Its Plans for 2001

Dialog (, a subsidiary of Thomson Corp. since its purchase last year (, has announced its strategies for this year and beyond. This coincided with the release of a number of new products and databases, including Dialog1. The company also announced the establishment of its Information Professional Market Development team. This group will coordinate and champion all Dialog programming to the information professional and librarian marketplace on a worldwide basis. In addition, Libby Trudell has been named senior vice president for Information Professional Market Development. Dialog is also launching its new theme—"Information to Change the World"—and a set of new graphical marks for its products.

"Dialog's strategy is to develop products and services for our core customers—information professionals—that build on our traditional strengths while leveraging the power of our brands, content, global sales and service organization, and leading-edge customization tools for the Internet," said Roy M. Martin Jr., Dialog's president and CEO.

Dialog's strategies will lay the groundwork for meeting the evolving requirements of information professionals who need to organize and categorize ever-increasing amounts of data from multiple sources, while better leveraging the Web and their own intranets to efficiently and effectively manage knowledge and deliver internal services. New intranet services from Dialog allow customers to enhance their information by providing active links from local content to Dialog content, all accessible with the same search tools. Aggressive programs to build new products and add content will support information professionals' exacting needs, and an enhanced focus on customer support and service will be implemented this year.

Watch for a NewsBreak next week that will provide details about the announcements. The June issue of Information Today will feature an interview with Martin.
