ALM Unifies Divisions, Delivering Greater Value Across Customer-Focused Platform
Full Integration of Competitive Capabilities Enables ALM to Provide Holistic, Customized Solution for Business Professionals
New York, NY—January 14, 2016—ALM has integrated its information and intelligence capabilities to better serve business professionals in highly complex industries. The firm has launched ALM.com (https://www.alm.com) as a unified portal through which its readers and marketers can access news, analysis, practical guidance, data, research reports, events and advanced marketing services that can help them overcome business challenges and engage more effectively with the professional community.
“In accordance with our deep understanding of our customers’ daily workflows and specialized needs, we have unified our multiple divisions to deliver greater value across our expanded platform,” said Bill Carter, CEO of ALM. “Business professionals make thousands of decisions every day, and ALM provides easy access to a broad spectrum of essential digital data, news and insights that empower them to make smart choices.”
As part of ALM’s company-wide initiative to deliver more value to its readers and marketers, the firm has organized around three pillars. Each pillar is underpinned by content-sharing among ALM’s consulting, insurance, finance, legal and real estate channels. The three pillars, listed below, combine to create a customized, holistic solution for the more than 6 million business professionals in the ALM network.
- ALM Discover:
The discovery of trends and new ideas help move businesses forward. ALM’s news, analysis and guidance—all created and vetted by experts in the consulting, insurance, finance, legal and real estate industries—provide digital, data-driven intelligence that customers need to take their businesses to the next level.
ALM’s websites are visited by 30 million business professionals, and generate 96 million page views, each year. ALM continues to strengthen its global content available to customers, having acquired Legal Week from Incisive Media earlier this month and China Law & Practice from Euromoney in August 2015.
- ALM Connect:
Content and intelligence are important, but they can’t propel businesses forward by themselves. ALM’s market-leading events enable business professionals to connect face-to-face with industry peers who can help them grow their companies. The complete ALM events calendar is available at http://at.alm.com/eventscalendar

“Law and regulation are at the foundation of all industries in which our readers and marketers work, whether they are professionals in insurance, real estate, finance, consulting or legal,” said Molly Miller, Chief Content Officer and Chief Marketing Officer at ALM. “We are now able to bring together information and insights from across our channels to support the long-term objectives of our readers and marketers in these highly complex, and in many cases highly regulated, industries. At the same time, this initiative enables us to continue to produce the comprehensive and insightful journalism that our customers have come to expect.”
