This article appears in the issue June 2008, [Vol 17, Issue 6]

Dow Jones & Company has acquired Generate, which says its software combines business-sensitive company and executive intelligence with relationship-mapping technology and trigger-event identification.

Generate adds that its extraction and aggregation solutions harvest company and executive data from the Web and maps the relationships among the people and organizations it finds. It spiders more than 75 million domains extracting comprehensive information from more than 4 million companies and 6.4 million executives. The software further mines, in real time, more than 100 "trigger events" of interest to business and financial professionals, such as mergers and acquisitions, senior executive and board changes, venture financing, etc. This information is integrated with relationship-mapping technology and is said to allow clients to detect competitive moves, identify prospects, optimize corporate/personal networks and connect to executives through their best and most appropriate relationship path, says Generate.

The content and technology provided by Generate will be deployed across the entire product range of the Dow Jones Media Group.
