Northern Light Adds New IT Content for SinglePoint Research Portals
Northern Light announced the immediate availability of a new content collection for SinglePoint strategic research portals, comprising more than 20,000 publicly-available information technology (IT) vendor white papers and case studies. The literature, distilled from the websites of 800 leading IT vendors, is full-text indexed by Northern Light so relevant documents can be highlighted and linked to in the integrated search results generated by a SinglePoint user's research query. The vendor white papers and case studies augment an already extensive repository of IT industry information available to SinglePoint subscribers, including research reports from nearly 80 IT industry analyst firms, and hundreds of IT industry news and commentary from traditional media and industry authority blogs.
SinglePoint strategic research portals are used by many research-driven companies in IT, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, financial services and other industries for competitive intelligence and market research, strategic planning, product development, marketing, and sales. The company says SinglePoint is the only turnkey enterprise search application that provides centralized search, analysis, and access for diverse sources of internal, external, and licensed market intelligence. Offered in a secure, hosted, user self-service portal environment, SinglePoint is customized to the precise market research and competitive intelligence purposes of each of Northern Light's enterprise clients.
Beyond providing a unified search index of all content contained in the portal, SinglePoint also offers the only automated "meaning extraction" application designed specifically for market intelligence, business analysis, product research, and market research. Meaning extraction imbues a search application with an in-depth understanding of the searched material. SinglePoint identifies meaning-loaded business concepts in a results list-such as corporate strategies, market share shifts, pricing changes, macro-economic events, new products, technology focus, and financial results-to help researchers discover new insights and drill down into the most relevant documents for purposes of their specific inquiry.
