Our Website

What’s this website all about?

DocLens uses advanced intelligent analytic techniques to automatically evaluate, summarise and link these documents to this website. Our technology does two important things. The first is that it automates the production of the THiNK newsletter that arrives in your email box. The second is that is fills this doclens.com site with complimentary information and expands on the THiNK newsletter.

Why subscribe to THiNK?

The advantages of THiNK are that we daily monitor and automatically analyse what is being said by the world’s leading consultancies, think tanks, business schools, bloggers, magazines and (occasionally) vendors. A task you don’t have time to do (believe us – we tried to do it!). For more on how THiNK will save you time and better prepare you for the working week, read on.

Our Methodology

Is doclens biased in any way?

Tunnel vision is always a potential issue and we address this on doclens.com by me making the final decision on what analysis to publish each week and secondly by publishing contrarian views. I believe that my 25 years of experience and knowledge, together with people that ‘rock the boat’ with their ideas will result in not just curated content, but insights as well.

We eliminate the need for time consuming searches and release people to think and then act faster than previously possible. We make our users look good.

Is Doclens an Automated Content Curator?

Doclens is more than Automated Content Curation as it does not only that, but also intelligently analyses and tells you about the most important things mentioned by ranking people, organisations, places, and technologies.

Each week there are literally thousands of new reports, articles and opinion pieces that might be interesting to a professional in a particular field. The problem is to find the few that are going to add value to their job today.

We solve this problem by tracking knowledge at its source. Our platform monitors over 100 sources of thought leadership – from the top 50 consulting companies, to think tanks, research bodies, business schools, specialist websites and bloggers. This research is automatically analysed and the results of the most innovative and insightful 1% are published on the www.doclens.com website.

The result is knowledge that data and analytics practitioners can easily access. At a glance they can see when there is something of use to them.

Who do you profile?

Week by week we automatically analyse the research and thought leadership material published globally. We then select the best of the best so you can read, understand and think about what the best 1% means to you. We then go a step further and profile the people who are creating the thought leadership material. Here are all the people profiles we have published, starting with the most recent ones.

Our Technology

What is the background of the technology behind doclens?

The platform was originally built to work on a very wide range of document types and subjects. We use open data and semantic analysis to link to over 50 billion facts over the internet. So the reach is pretty mind boggling. But by no means can our technology handle everything. Our testing showed us that we are about 90% accurate in identifying ‘players’ based on our content analysis and about 85% accurate in being able to construct profiles.
