I was at the AIIP Annual Conference in New Orleans last week. There were lots of discussions about reinvention, reimagining, and the most popular word of the conference, pivoting. So today as I read through the stories I realized that it isn't just independent info pros that are seeking to stay ahead of the curve, the need to anticipate and be prepared for the next iteration is present across the entire knowledge industry. So as you read today's edition think about how new processes, expanded skills and evolving technologies can help you prepare for your own pivot.

Charting New Players

Thanks to Robert Ambrogi's latest post we have a handy dandy chart of a few new legal technology players. 16 Additions to my List of Legal Startups provides a synopsis of what each of these new applications do and their country of origin. As you might imagine,the majority are US based and few of them are using the capabilities of AI and machine learning to enhance their offerings.

Reimagining Research Services Structures

As someone who reviews library operations processes on a fairly regular basis, Jinfo for optimising your research service caught my eye this morning. While the article discusses Jinfo's maturity model and three-layer approach specifically, a few takeaways are appropriate for anyone seeking to optimize information services. As the article states, "The most consistent success factor, regardless of size or scope of your research service, is to have a strong foundation in systems and processes."
