Silobreaker Launches Current Awareness Service

Silobreaker (, a current awareness service focused on the understanding and analysis of global instabilities, announced its formal launch into the U.S. marketplace following its introduction into the European market last year. The service is a joint venture of Infosphere, a Swedish commercial intelligence and knowledge strategy consultancy, and Elucidon, a U.K.-based provider of advanced information analytics and decision support software. Silobreaker is designed for "light or casual information professionals" (executives, consultants, investors, analysts, newshounds, etc.) and costs $199 per year.

Silobreaker goes beyond basic search methods by locating co-occurrences in the text, extracting meaning from them, and clustering them together for deeper analysis. It's all done on the fly. Silobreaker contains more than 10,000 qualified news sources and structured biography databases and claims to be incapable of delivering navigational dead-ends. It offers a single, integrated platform for searching structured and unstructured information. It lets users split the news, drill-down by topic, map their results geospatially, and organize it all in a 360-degree view.

Since the focus of Silobreaker is on global conflicts, threats, and instabilities, the company said it is particularly suited to multinational companies, media organizations, government agencies, and consulting firms that require trusted global intelligence to protect people, property, and assets; anticipate, prevent, and solve problems; implement precautionary measures; and maintain alert and proactive competitive awareness in business decisions and negotiations.
