    CARY, N.C., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Dialog, a leading provider of
 online-based information services and a subsidiary of The Thomson Corporation
 (TSE: TOC), today announced Intranews, a product that combines the breadth and
 depth of the company's Profound(R) online service with the ability to deliver
 breaking headlines and stories to corporate intranets or portals throughout
 the day.
     Intranews provides users with the news they want when it happens, and
 integrates into existing technology infrastructures to provide a complete
 knowledge management and intranet solution.
     "Intranews is designed to add value and intelligence to the enterprise,"
 said Roy M. Martin, Jr., president and CEO of Dialog. "Tailored profiling and
 delivery of individuals' exact news requirements, alongside existing internal
 and external information, provides a wide range of professionals with the
 complete decision-making picture."
     Intranews, part of Dialog's IntraIntelligence suite of intranet content
 solutions, processes news wires as soon as they are received. They are then
 delivered automatically to a user's system in either XML or HTML format.
     Intranews content can be tailored to match specific news requirements,
 providing organizations with unique news profiles -- and users with only the
 news that is relevant to them. Users can choose from thousands of publications
 throughout the day to keep abreast of the latest developments in their
 industry or sector, monitor competitors, and track industry and technology
 trends. Tailored news content is handled using Bright Station's Plc.
 InfoSort(R) document classification technology, which understands and
 categorizes documents by thousands of separate market sectors, locations,
 companies, and subjects.
     "The addition of Intranews means businesses can harness greater potential
 from their corporate intranets, enabling employees to become true knowledge
 workers. Dialog will continue to evolve, delivering products and solutions
 that make a difference to the way people work," Martin concluded.
