focus group testing – Market Intelligence software

The S&P Global product staff will be conducting one on one focus group testing on their MI- Market Intelligence software app for Mobile users.  They are hoping to speak with 2 current finance students regarding this app.  Here is their message…

“The Market Intelligence app provides access to the key data/contents in the palm of your hand.  You can quickly scan news headlines, search for company information, or receive push notification of the latest news to ensure you are up-to-date.  We’re looking to improve our mobile app experience with your feedback. How can we make your mobile experience better? Do you have any difficulty accessing certain types of information? During the feedback session, we’re going to ask you to click through current designs and future design prototypes, and give us feedback based on your findings. We’re doing this to get a sense of what is working in both solutions and what’s not.  This shouldn’t take more than 60-90 minutes for one-to-one testing.”

If you are interested in participating in this focus group testing, please contact Watson Library at business@library.columbia.edu, and we will forward your information to S&P.

Thanks!

Investor Activism data template on Capital IQ!

In partnership with S&P’s Investment Banking team, Capital IQ just released a new template called Investor Activism for the S&P Capital IQ Office plug-in.

Investor Activism data is a popular, high quality data set that has been available on the CIQ platform for years. Many S&P Capital IQ clients, in particular in the corporate, investment management and investment banking segments, have asked to also have this data available in the Excel plug in.  Clients can now enter a subject Company ID or Activist ID and see all the campaigns against or initiated by that company.

Applicable Client Workflows:

Investment Managers, Investment Banks, and Corporate

How Clients Get This Template:  To download the template within the SP CIQ Office plug-in ribbon, go to Templates >> Get/Update Templates >> + New Templates or Transaction >> Investor Activism

Thomson One: Workaround for using Chrome and Firefox

Thomson One is a useful database for financial data on public companies, as well as merger and acquisition information and market data. Users can search and screen across databases to identify companies that meet your specific investment criteria as well as conduct peer analysis.  Includes Investext, Private Equity database (Venturexpert) and Thomson Deals (SDC Platinum).

However it proves to be difficult because of its compatibility with only Internet Explorer (IE) pre-version 10.  However this is a workaround with an extension/Addins for Chrome/Firefox.

Please note that not all functions are supported with this solution (i.e. downloading analyst reports).

Please note, this information was gathered from a various business libraries.
