AdClarity

AdClarity is an amazing tool when you need to get some webpage from another location. It has lots of different location around the world, well organised by continent, which allow you (according your subscription) emulate easily each one of your desired hits (like hit an American only website in Europe, or vice-versa, etc). For a non-professional users, allows you to do some "tricky" actions, like clean cookies or set a different device user-agent to emulate an mobile device, with simple actions (one or two clicks).Avoid using it to stream video when you pay by download size. Also avoid have multiple tabs/windows on your web browser when you are using this tool, it will refresh all of them.

Digimind Intelligence

If you work in strategic marketing, business intelligence or competitive intelligence then Digimind can shave hours of time off your daily monitoring routine.You no longer have to manually trawl the web looking for news and no longer miss any important developments thanks to Digiminds ability to monitor sites up to 4 times a day.However it is important to understand that you can only get out of Digimind what you put in, so there is some initial effort involved in order to build up sources for the tool to monitor and setup your own folder structure to save information.

  • Content management - store all of your data within the portal and access from any location with internet access or use the "push mail" feature to have a daily or weekly summary of news sent directly to your email inbox.

Cons

  • When used in Chrome, it affect all tabs and reload it, which increases data downloaded with tool on, and will impact on costs.
  • Some features are useless to developers, like clean cookies and set device type, they should have different versions for professionals and regular users.

  • New users may find it difficult to initially setup their Digimind platform as some of the functions appear a little complex, however with a short training session this can be easily overcome.
  • Extranets are extemely useful for displaying current news as well as searching for old articles at a later date. There is one problem with the search function however which does not allow you to show results with the latest date so you often have to either know the exact headline or end up scrolling through a few pages before you find the correct one. A "show newest first" function would be a great improvement.

Alternatives Considered

Very similar product, they have the same purposes and also same features, only difference could be the costs.

We initially trialled the Digimind platform just over 6 years ago, after looking at many alternative tools and platforms.Having used a tool called "website watcher" which had to be installed locally to alert on changes in web pages, moving to digimind could be compared to changing from a landline to using a modern smart phone.We originally looked at a wide range of products:-News monitors: Meltwater News, Factiva (great for sources, however lacking what a full CI platform can offer, sometimes work well in unison with Digimind itself, especially if they can offer RSS feeds which can be channelled directly in to Digimind)Clustering engines; - Kartoo Watch, Exalead (great for finding information and sources, but not much use for managing data itself)CI Platforms; QL2, Intelligenxia (now UReveal), Novintel (now global intelligence alliance), nStein (now a division of Open Text) and several more now defunct platforms.The closest to Digimind in terms of features looked to be QL2 as the others had gaps in one area or another.Digimind offered by far the most features and has the capability to allow multiple users access to a shared platform on a global basis.Support is also very good with new features and improvements being added on a regular basis.As the platform is "in the cloud" you can access it from anywhere with an internet connection via the website and your login.After 6 years of use we are still extremely happy with Digimind and have adopted the platform globally with users from different countries sharing information through it internally which likely would not have happend without the platform.Alternative products are now starting to appear but they still have a long way to go in order to offer the level of functionality and ongoing development which Digimind can offer.

Digimind is a great tool for organising and storing information from a wide variety of sources.What It cant do alone is find that information, at least not until you setup your own criteria and start to point it in the right direction.Having said that, once you have sources setup, key words, monitoring agents etc.. it pretty much can run itself and pull in your relevant data from a wide range of sources, including web pages, RSS feeds and news groups - it can even login to passworded sites for you once you set them up.Need to monitor 500 websites or news pages? No problem, however you still need to set them up first and tell it where to monitor.
