A large part of our work depends on the ability to source quality media content from a breadth of dependable sources globally. This is Factiva's bread and butter: it has a very comprehensive list of 'quality' media sources such as nationals, dailies, business journals and magazines from around the world that are easily mined for the content they hold. If you're thinking about anything other than these 'traditional' media sources then Factiva probably isn't your thing. It doesn't do social media.

Tracxn Technologies Ltd.
Well suited: - Good for scouting targets for clients, based on their industry preferences, maturity level, and investor profile preference - Helped in buy-side due diligence. Less appropriate - Lacking in terms of readily available insights, with sector reports published in-house being extremely shallow and hence not much of value addition.

Pros
Dow Jones
  • Factiva offers excellent search builders so that I am able to narrow my search to specific companies or topics very easily.
  • Factiva combines a large number of credible sources into one place and allows me to search all of these sources.
  • Factiva's use of timestamps helps me understand when the news was known by the market which allows me to analyze how (if at all) that particular piece of news impacted the company's stock price.
  • Provides an excellent starting place for learning about a company and/or industry.

  • Sector reports could be better e.g. competitors like CB Insights do a better job at it.
  • Pricing is a bit steep, when compared to peers like Dealroom.
  • Credibility of the data is a question mark (CB Insights has way more traction with investors).

At the time, Factiva was already being used by the company I worked for - they had developed procedures specifically for using Factiva, so there wasn't really an option. I've used Lexis, Westlaw and Bloomberg exclusively for legal research, so there wasn't really an overlap with Factiva.

This beats all of the other programs. I have used all of them and Tracxn makes using the software so much easier. Using it daily I found out that it has an easy learning curve and a user-friendly interface. Data is more organized in this program as well.
