Content Automation – Day 1

Forecasts To 2025 By Service, By Region, End-use Landscape, Vendor Landscape, Market Share & Competitive Landscape

The demand for automated journalism market is expected to gain wide acceptance among new paper and news room industry. Artificial intelligence is expected to solve some of these challenges by focusing on streamlining workflow, automated visual aid development, automating task such as locating breaking news across the world, faster data crunching to break out news at a faster rate. The automated journalism market offers services such as streamlining workflows, automating task, faster crunching, separation of fake news, and content writing among others. BBC news has also adopted artificial intelligence in journalism that helps extract & segregate important news articles and link news stories together. Reuters uses Graphiq to develop interactive data visualization for news publishers in various sectors such as politics, entertainment, natural calamities, and sports among others. 

The European and North American region have experienced a high subscription rate of online newspaper and digital media, thereby increasing the preference for automated journalism in order to maintain a competitive edge in the digital market. The demand for automated journalism in the Asia Pacific market is also expected to receive high traction in the market over the forecast period. Some of the companies who are likely to use automated journalism include The New York Times, Washington Post, and BBC Network among others. Some of the prominent companies engaged in automated journalism market include Graphiq, Heliograf, Automated Insights, Yseop, Alphabet, Narrative Science, Arria, Press Association, and OnlyBoth Inc. among others. 

The global Automated Journalism Market has been studied from the year 2016 till 2025. The desk research involved a robust background study which meant referring to paid and unpaid databases to understand the market dynamics; mapping contracts from press releases; identifying the key players in the market, studying their product portfolio, competition level, annual reports/SEC filings & investor presentations; and learning the demand and supply side analysis for the Automated Journalism Market. Finally, based on the above thorough research process, an in-depth analysis was carried out considering the following aspects: market attractiveness, current & future market trends, market share analysis, SWOT analysis of the companyies and customer analytics.

Software QA and Testing Resource Center

Previous software development experience can be helpful as it provides a deeper understanding of the software development process, gives the tester an appreciation for the developers’ point of view, and enhances automated test programming skills. In recent years the role of the software test engineer has been in flux, and in some organizations test engineers are more technical, being also involved in developing or maintaining continuous integration and delivery processes, and/or developing test automation capabilities and integrating them into these processes. A relevant testing approach in this situation may include approaches such as ‘exploratory testing’. See the ‘Other Resources’ page in the ‘General Software QA and Testing Resources’ section for articles on exploratory testing, and in the ‘Agile and XP Testing Resources’ section for articles on agile software development and testing. In the XP ‘test first’ approach developers create automated unit testing code before the application code, and these automated unit tests could essentially embody requirements. 

Most modern software applications are so complex, and run in such an interdependent environment, that complete testing can never be done. Although web site testing was initially relatively simple years ago, testing of modern web site front ends, back end systems, mid-level tiers, web services, databases, security, performance, etc, can be as complex as or more complex than any other type of application. While there will be little effect on black box testing, white-box testing can be oriented to the application’s objects, methods, etc. In 2001 a group of software development and test practitioners gathered to discuss lightweight methods and created the ‘Agile Manifesto’ which describes the Agile approach values and lists 12 principles that describe Agile software development. Both new functionality testing and regression testing may occur within each iterative cycle. 

Common testing-related practices in agile projects may include test-driven development, extensive unit testing and unit test automation, API-level test automation, exploratory and session-based testing, continuous integration, UI test automation. For more info on Agile and other ‘lightweight’ software development approaches see the resource listings in the ‘Agile Testing Resources’ section of this web site.

Context for Electronic Records Management [ERM]

Electronic records management simply implies automation of records management processes and procedures. These first five Fast Track products focus specifically on automated processes and procedures used in the management of only those records maintained in electronic form; Fast Track has termed this arena as that of electronic recordkeeping [ERK]. And as is discussed in Preliminary Planning for Electronic Recordkeeping: Checklist for IT Staff, one of the first decisions that agencies must make when deciding to move towards automation of records management processes is to determine whether the system is to manage only paper records [ERM], only electronic records [ERK], or both [ERM]. This Fast Track product provides a context for ERK, specifies the records management and information technology [IT] terminology associated with ERK, and provides a context for the following four strategic Fast Track products. The focus of this particular set of Fast Track products concerns electronic recordkeeping concepts that need to be understood in the larger context of records management, electronic records management, and other aspects of information technology. 

Electronic records management [ERM] is using automated techniques to manage records regardless of format. Electronic records management is the broadest term that refers to electronically managing records on varied formats, be they electronic, paper, microform, etc. Electronic recordkeeping [ERK] is a subset of ERM, because ERK focuses on electronically managing electronic records. Electronic recordkeeping [ERK] is the development of automated processes an agency uses to manage its electronic records. Records Management Application [RMA] is the term used in DoD 5015.2-STD, Design Criteria Standard for Electronic Records Management Software Applications, for software that manages records. 

Its primary management functions are categorizing and locating records and identifying records that are due for disposition. Given the relationship that has been explained here between electronic records management [ERM] and electronic recordkeeping [ERK], the next four products focus specifically on ERK. This is not meant to imply that the larger context of ERM is being ignored, or that some of what is contained in the subsequent products is not equally applicable to ERM systems development efforts.
