This is an entry level product which provides users with commercial intelligence on markets and industry in a particular country, plus market, financial and industry data on each of the Towns and Cities in the country.


There are a some 78,000 cities and towns covered in these databases for which overall market data is provided. Detailed market and product data is given for End User significant towns and for significant Product Launch towns. Detailed financial data is given for commercially significant towns and for significant Product Launch towns.


These reports are formatted to give both a narrative description of the various matters covered as well as provide readers with the ability to directly use the Chapters (via Microsoft Word or compatible word processors) to produce their own reports and documentation. Experienced users will be able to use the spreadsheet & databases to generate highly detailed narrative reports, charts and graphics - as well as sophisticated business and commercial forecasts & models. The databases are provided as both Excel spreadsheets & Access databases.


As an entry level product the narrative is necessarily illustrative in its terminology and seeks to provide a basic degree of business logic and theory which indicates the rational applied in the forecasting & modelling methodology.


The databases provided are specifically designed to provide users with a uniform and consistent numeric measure of both (normally) quantifiable values as well as conceptual factors which are (usually) only capable of qualification. Experienced users will know how to apply forecasting and modelling software to the numeric data provided to generate highly detailed and discrete business planning models. The databases provided in this report can be used directly with databases on other product, markets and industries in other countries. The databases are specifically designed to be transnational, currency neutral, inflation and purchasing parity adjusted, product parity and product equivalent adjusted, opportunity cost adjusted, and numerically compatible; they all can be linked or merged programmatically in business planning models to provide multi-national and multi-level analysis.

Markets & Products

 

The database will give market data for each of the Product and Market Sectors, by year Historic: from 1997, and a Forecast by year to 2040.  Data will be given for up to 500 Cities and Towns in the country.

Data Caveat.

The report databases are designed to give a common definition, unit of measure and quantification of demand in over 200 countries. These reports rely on data collection at various levels of the product flow; this effectively means, the producer, the distribution channels and the end user or consumers. This data is then correlated with any national and international statistical data produced by official agencies. Unfortunately, product flow data gathering in some countries is difficult, and furthermore the official statistical data is both inaccurate and sparse. In such circumstances, in some countries, we have to flag a Data Caveat as a warning.  What this means is that in some countries the data is not sufficiently verifiable for statistical purposes and in those cases the data may not be presented.



Financial Data

 

The databases will give Financial data for each of the Financial Data and Margins, by country, by year Historic from 1997, and a Forecast by year to 2040.  Data will be given for EACH of the significant Cities and Towns in the country covered.

Real Time Support

The After-Sales Service can offer client Real-Time Support. This usually involves using a software utility called TeamViewer (an installation program can be found in the Toolkit on your DVD or Hard Disk Drive) which allows the After-Sales Service support staff to directly link to the client’s computer and work with the users in real time.

 

Toolkits

To assist users there are various Toolkits available on request:

Because all DataGroup & Data Institute database are directly compatible with U.S. Government databases it is sometimes useful for users to use US Government data handling tools to manage not only US Government data, but also the data provided by DataGroup and Data Institute. Alternatively, if you are already using this US Government software you can simply access the DataGroup & Data Institute databases with the same software.  In generate DataGroup & Data Institute use the same database parameters, structures and field names as those found in US Government databases, and thus users can correlate and query databases without undue difficulty.

Toolkit 2

Resource Web

Sometimes clients also want the data loaded onto a password protected dedicated website for the use of their staff and any other persons they may authorise.

The main benefit of these Resource Webs is that the data is available to all the client’s staff and professional advisors wherever they may be, and also when data is updated, or new data is added, then there is a common point of access for that data.  Resource Webs are maintained for the use of the client for a period of 12 months from the last update to that site.  These dedicated web sites are provided by the After-Sales Service. 

For a detailed view of a typical Resource Web:   http://www.eni-italy.info   produced for ENI, the Italian Oil group

Database Compatibility

 

The increased use of Database Management Systems, Business Planning and Control Systems, Enterprise Resource Planning, Management Information Systems, and other tools amongst management professionals has produced a critical need for the harmonisation of data across various software applications and systems platforms. The After-Sales Service ensures that its output, where required, will be fully compatible with every product and database.

 

For this reason all the databases use harmonised database and data sets; thereby users can obtain any database from any of the publishers, for any of their brands, with the assurance that these databases are fully compatible and can be used in conjunction with one another and the various platforms, operating systems and software.

 

            

                   

 

                    

 

Since 2007, we have undertaken the harmonisation and convergence of the database specifications and definitions of the various database providers. This is to allow users a uniform and standardised reference to use with their planning and forecasting; and to allow cross-database functionality.

 

The data sets, modules and standards shown are now fully harmonised and standardised to allow data and software interflow and cross-platform usage of the databases.  Users may obtain older data dictionaries and standards, and/or data sets and data dictionaries for their own national standards. The standard product and market definitions have been harmonised and are provided (in the standard database products supplied), often as the NAICS classifications. Users wishing to remain with the previous SIC classifications may obtain these databases under that classification system. Users requiring other (U.N., European, Japanese, et cetera) classification definitions and norms may obtain those as necessary. Accounting standards are also harmonised according to the U.S. regulatory norms; however other norms are available. Data dictionary and data definition bridges and converters are available to allow users to update or standardise their databases. The Data Institute has undertaken to maintain support for the older data dictionary standards and definitions until 2025; however users are urged to update at their earliest convenience.



National + City Databases

National & City Databases cover all the significant Cities and Towns in each National Market for each Product Sector.


  • National + City Databases Cost $ 2850.
  • Delivery: Online delivery as a Zipped file within 24 hours.
  • Account Holders can directly (immediately) download the database.


* The Data Caveat


The databases are designed to give a common definition, unit of measure and quantification of markets in each country and each significant city and town within that country.


These databases rely on data collection at various levels of the product flow; this effectively means, the producer, the distribution channels and the end user or consumers at a country, and then a city or town level. This data is then correlated with any national and international statistical data produced by official agencies.  Unfortunately, product flow data gathering in some countries is difficult, and furthermore the official statistical data is both inaccurate and sparse. In such cases, in some countries, we have to flag a Data Caveat as a warning.


Countries marked * indicate a data caveat due to local conditions.

Country & Town Market Report have data for each of the following countries and each city within that country:
