John J. Regazzi will present a webinar on Infonomics on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 at 11 am US/Eastern Daylight Time.

The term infonomics has been coined to convey the underlying value of information today how it is produced, the market demand for it, how user behaviors affect it, and how it is changing as an economic good and service. Consumers make decisions every day about how to acquire the information they need from their travel reservations to their educational courses to the business analytics they require. More and more they expect that most, if not all, of their requisite information 1) is available on the Web; 2) is readily accessible and useful; 3) can be verified; and 4) is free.  As we look at this shift, a compelling conundrum emerges: while the new digital channels of information distribution have reduced information users costs to zero or near zero, these same channels have increased the corresponding benefits significantly. This book examines how infonomics and the “business of free” have changed the fundamental value propositions of information, how businesses need to think differently about creating value and profits in the new age of infonomics, and how consumers will derive increased value from the new infonomics.  

John J. Regazzi has spent over 40 years in the electronic information services and scholarly publishing industries, being called a “pioneer” and “true innovator” of the information industry. He has designed, launched, and managed some of the most innovative and well-known information services in the professional communities, including the Engineering Village, Science Direct, Scopus, and many other electronic information services dating back to the early days of the online and CD-ROM industries.

John spent most of his career with Reed Elsevier and retired as CEO of Elsevier Inc. (NYSE: ENL). Prior to that, he was CEO of Engineering Information Inc., a company that he helped turn around and that was acquired by Reed Elsevier. In 2005, John assumed the role of dean of the College of Information and Computer Science of Long Island University (LIU) and recently stepped down from this post and now lectures and directs the Scholarly Communications and Information Innovation Lab at LIU. He is also part of the U.S. Department of State Expert Speakers Program and has lectured in Germany, Turkey, and Spain.

John presently serves on a variety corporate and industry boards, including the British Standards Institute (BSI) Group (a UK Royal Charter Company) and the American Institute of Physics (AIP) Publishing (a professional publishing organization), and was recently appointed as chairman of the Advisory Board, National Technical Information Service (NTIS), a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce. John currently also serves as chairman of the board of directors of the Law Logix Group, a SaaS company serving law firms and corporations, and as a managing director of Akoya Capital Partners, an executive-led investment bank partnering with leading CEOs around the world.
