Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) June 6, 2006
Information Sources, Inc.®, today announced the immediate online availability of TecTrends® (http://www.tectrends.com), the free access version of its database that is designed to support early-stage technology development, intelligence gathering, and product purchase evaluations. TecTrends provides organizations with a competitive information advantage by adding an editorialized layer to aggregated content, which can then be easily searched and browsed in order to identify new companies, products, technologies, and market trends.
“The TecTrends database was developed for professionals, organizations, and end users whose success depends upon having access to relevant information and market insights, in advance of their competitors or the general public,” said Ruth Koolish, Founder & Principal of Information Sources. “TecTrends serves their unmet need by providing a breadth of content, adding human editorial value to the content, and supplementing it with article references from more than 175 credible sources. In addition, the content and database organization enable linking in ways that most other databases do not, delivering an enhanced user experience.”
Proprietary descriptors known as ‘TecTerms,’ are associated with all entries within the database. Users can search and navigate TecTrends using company name, product name, article references, and any combination of the 2,500 current TecTerms. TecTerms span the areas of technology and science, as well as popular trends concerning such topics as XML technology, blogs, wikis, social networking, and others.
TecTrends is designed for professionals who utilize and purchase technology products, such as product managers, information professionals, and researchers. Information Sources will provide free online access to the TecTrends database on an indefinite basis. The company provides access to corporations via paid annual license subscriptions, and also offers syndicated content to other database providers and online portal and media operators.
