Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters Brings Greater Quality to Competitive Intelligence Data

Owler adopting PermID to help structure and gain greater insight from
competitive data

NEW YORK, January 28, 2016 -
Thomson Reuters Permanent Identifier (PermID) has been adopted by Owler to
increase the transparency and effectiveness of its competitive intelligence
tool. PermID is a machine-readable identifier developed by Thomson Reuters to
create a unique reference for any data item. Owler is using PermID to map the
companies it tracks and strengthen its database, allowing it to improve the
depth and breadth of the analysis it provides.

Owler helps business professionals quickly monitor and gain insights into
their competitors with a series of customized and automated reports. It does
this through its Competitive Graph, which maps the relationships between
companies. This is constantly updated by hundreds of thousands of Owler users
who contribute estimates on key data fields including revenue, headcount and
CEO ratings. By using PermID, Owler strengthens the quality of the complex
relationships between data, ensuring companies, subsidiaries and other
entities are correctly identified and linked. This will also help the growing
ecosystem of institutions already using PermID to integrate Owler content
more easily into their own systems and processes.

"Thomson Reuters is a leader in the field of open data," said Tim Harsch,
co-founder and director of product, Owler. "Its PermID is helping us ensure
greater accuracy and transparency in our database without relying on closed,
proprietary identifier schemas. We believe that high quality competitor data
has huge business potential, but for maximum value to be gained it needs to
be structured on open principles. Thomson Reuters is helping the business
community achieve this."

"Innovative companies like Owler are demonstrating the breadth of ways PermID
can help improve data quality," said Wilbur Swan, vice president, technology
development, Thomson Reuters. "We developed PermID for use in Thomson
Reuters products, to improve the quality and connectedness of our data for
search and analytics. In 2015, we made PermID available to the world under a
free, open data license to foster innovation with clients, partners and start
ups. It can be of value anywhere there are complex data management needs,
helping firms make connections among multiple data items and find the answers
they need to succeed."

Thomson Reuters Permanent Identifier is a machine-readable identifier
developed to create a unique reference for any data item. Unlike stock
tickers and other such symbols, PermID never changes. PermID was developed by
Thomson Reuters to manage its own internal datasets and is now being made
available more widely to help solve the big data challenges faced by multiple
industries. For more information about PermID, please
