EMIS Next Is Named Best Research Provider at IMD & IRD Awards

London, May 2024 – EMIS, the curator of market intelligence and business analysis, is proud to announce that EMIS Next has been named Best Research Provider at the prestigious 2024 Inside Market Data (IMD) and Inside Reference Data (IRD) Awards. 

This recognition underscores our dedication to excellence through EMIS Next, our recently unveiled, AI-powered research platform, which empowers decision-making in the world’s fastest-growing markets.

“Winning this award acknowledges our team’s hard work to establish local knowledge and content networks in markets that are often opaque – providing the intelligence our clients need to make investment, strategic, and risk decisions,” said EMIS Managing Director Diego Obere. “It also marks the culmination of two years of exhaustive user research and meticulous development that delivered EMIS Next.” 

EMIS Next, the successor to EMIS’s flagship product, represents a quantum leap forward in supporting workflows. It provides:

  • An enhanced user experience for the whole organization, including an improved interface designed to tailor navigation and analytical tools to users’ needs. This facilitates the process of discovering, consuming, analysing and sharing insights.
  • Machine learning and generative artificial intelligence technology that spots trends more quickly and curates data for easier discovery. Our advanced text analytics enable our clients to accelerate the generation of new insights from large volumes of data. 
  • Deeper content on companies and markets, all in one place: we now summarise and index key information from hundreds of thousands carefully selected open web sources.
  • New monitoring tools that help our clients never miss anything again: EMIS Next’s dashboards and alerts track the large volumes of unstructured data being published every day on companies, industries and macroeconomics.

“There has been a clear improvement in user experience and navigation, making EMIS an even more powerful and convenient platform,” said Andrew Kopka, research director, equity capital markets at mBank. “It’s an essential tool to expand one’s business perspectives.”
