Big data is helping many organisations and individuals help the most innocent individuals (premature babies) right up to more senior individuals, by analysing data and trends that come from collecting data. Big data, it would appear, is a big topic for many and is seemingly is being used for many different purposes by many different organisations.

As the role of information professionals changes, there is an opportunity to borrow tools and skills from the playbook of consultancy in order to lay the foundation for a sustainable future. But what are the most important skills for those seeking to develop their consultancy competencies?

We all know how powerful a tool LinkedIn is for individuals to connect with their peers, join groups and follow companies that they’re interested in. However increasingly LinkedIn is positioning itself as source of both business information, thought leadership pieces and news stories. In its latest move into providing news-related content LinkedIn has acquired Newsle. So what new functionality can we expect to see as part of this latest acquisition by LinkedIn?

New global rules on company financial reporting show that regulation and compliance continue to offer one of the best opportunities for information professionals and publishers.

Click to view the article James Mullan The Right to Anonymity on the Internet
Tuesday, 15th July 2014 Please login top-right to be able to star items

Recently there has been a slew of articles discussing the right of individuals to have details about themselves removed from Google search results and the internet. This follows a recent "right to be forgotten" European Court of Justice judgment which ruled that Google must amend some search results at the request of "ordinary" people. James Mullan discusses what rights we have to remain anonymous and looks at the impact for enterprises who are trying to encourage users to post content to enterprise social networks and other social tools.

Monday, 14th July 2014 Please login top-right to be able to star items

Just when it is OK to make use of content without the permission of the copyright holder? As one new service launches to help end users access the content they need and - crucially - let them know exactly what they may and may not do with it, a long-standing dispute over rights to news content seems to have come to an end. It may seem pretty obvious that you don't need the permission of the copyright holder for what you view online, but a new European Court ruling seems to have established the principle once and for all.

Thursday, 10th July 2014 Please login top-right to be able to star items

Where big data is concerned, bosses increasingly prefer relevant insights over simply more of them. As new analytical products continue to appear, technology has its part to play - but a new book from a perhaps unexpected source makes clear that it's the humans who need to have the last word. One blogger's insights into the war in Syria demonstrate the effectiveness of employing brain power to engage in open source intelligence using social media forensics. And you also have to wonder whether it's unduly optimistic to assume that sentiment analytics software will be up to the job yet of detecting sarcasm.

Wednesday, 9th July 2014 Please login top-right to be able to star items

Recent revelations that one search engine is already removing links to news in response to the European Court's "right to be forgotten" ruling, and that a major social media provider has been conducting an emotional impact experiment by tinkering with users' feeds, raise important issues about the integrity of news. As another study reveals that journalists are now more likely to source news from social media and less likely to check it - despite its known unreliability - there are new challenges for information professionals in how they source and disseminate news within their own organisations, and how they encourage end-users to evaluate it.
