Hello and Welcome To Millie


Northern Light's goal in providing Millie is to give you at-a-glance market and competitive intelligence on a variety of industries.  The heart of Millie is the presentation of immediately useful information on industry dashboards, so browse through them.  There you will find featured stories, continuously updated news content, and links to additional topics.

Also, we hate legal stuff, but the lawyers make us do it, so be sure to read the user agreement below at the bottom of this page.  But after that, we hope you have a blast using the site and find that Millie is the most helpful and knowledgeable person on your market intelligence staff.

Getting Started

To get started with a dashboard, use the dashboard menu up the upper left hand corner.  If this is your first time, begin by selecting the "Dashboards" and then "Dashboards Directory."  As you use dashboards, you will see that the ones you have looked at will show up in the dropdown menu under "Recent Dashboards." While looking at a dashboard, you can favorite it by clicking on the "star" icon beside its name at the top of the center column and that dashboard will be at the top of the list when you come into Millie.



Search Business News

You can also search our business news feeds for content on topics not already on one of Millie's dashboards.  The search runs against Northern Light Business News, a collection of 40,000 news stories a day from industry and technology news sites, with a few local newspapers thrown in for hometown business news.  You can find different industry news search collections in the dropdown menu labeled "search."  Pick your industry, enter a search term, and click on the search button.  Note, the only difference in the search results by industry will be in the text analytics on the left hand column beside your search results, so be sure to check the analytics out.

Text Analytics

Whenever you see a search result on Mille, browse through the concept text analytics on the left hand side.  The concepts listed are found in the stories on your search result.  You can refine you search just by clicking on the concept name.  Also, use the "more" link in the concept area to see an automated trend analysis of the concepts of interest.
