Dialog Targets 10 Sectors With New Suite of Information Solutions

The Dialog Corp. plc is launching a suite of industry-focused information services targeting ten major market sectors on July 31.

The sectors are: business, news and media, government, medicine, intellectual property, technology, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, energy, and agriculture.

Users will be able to access each of the services separately, via a unique URL, or via a gateway to all the services at: www.dialogselect.com. Prior to the official launch, users may preview the site at: test.dialogselect.com, the company said.

The new services can also be integrated into a corporate intranet, for which purpose the vendor offers flat-fee pricing, enabling many users from an organisation to access the pages at a predictable price. The firm added that fast access is assured through DialogNet, the vendor's high-speed network backbone.

Each of the services may be combined with the others, allowing--for example--users in the healthcare industry to combine access to DialogMed and DialogPharma.

"Professionals in all sectors need relevant information at their fingertips, specifically information tailored to their particular industry," said Dan Wagner, Dialog Corporation's CEO. "With more information available than ever before, these professionals are constantly searching for new ways to effectively harness the right information, in order to support strategic decision-making. This new range of solutions from The Dialog Corporation provide a focused point of entry to the unparalleled Dialog content, enabling users to maintain their competitive edge by quickly locating the exact data needed to make critical business decisions."

The Dialog Corporation was created by the merger of M.A.I.D plc and Knight-Ridder Information Inc.
