The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has acquired GlobalSpec, a leading source of news, data and analytics for the global engineering and technical community, including the widely known brand name Engineering360. PR Newswire brought this news to our attention in their article, “IEEE Acquires GlobalSpec and the Engineering360 Platform from IHS to Create Powerful New Resource for the Global Engineering Community.” This new for-profit subsidiary of IEEE has been renamed IEEE GlobalSpec, Inc.

IEEE GlobalSpec is targeted on a decision-making audience of industry-based engineers, technical professionals, manufacturers, distributors, and service providers involved in technical research, product design, and purchasing. The business also provides webinars and online forums for technical professionals to share and collaborate, and a full suite of content marketing tools and products.

Access Innovations worked with IEEE to update their thesaurus a few years ago. Ensuring that data is findable across different sources is one of the biggest challenges for enterprise teams today. Without strong taxonomies and standardized methods to manage your data, a difficult situation can get worse. Choose the right product and professionals to provide taxonomy services and help you manage your content.
