About the Information Industry
According to our data, the information industry is worth $368.6 billion. But because the sectors are so diverse, executives often don’t think of themselves as part of the information industry, but rather in scientific publishing, or news publishing, or financial information publishing, to name just a few.
But wait. In truth, publishers and information providers face the same challenges no matter what the segment. Do any of these questions sound familiar?
- How can my organization increase revenue?
- Should the content I offer be free or paid?
- What content technologies should I use? Which ones should I avoid?
- What do my customers want?
- What are my competitors up to?
