Data services


Like all businesses nowadays, we are driven by data. In the course of our work, we gather and collate data through our own primary research, and also from a large number of public sources, and feed it back through our events and publications.

Research programme members also supply us with certain types of data to feed our benchmarking and modelling activities; these are subject to strict confidentiality and anti-trust policies and are never shared with any third parties.

We have developed Data Services as a means of giving members and other clients direct access to rich datasets, where they can run queries and extract the resulting data in a variety of formats for their own use.
