Quarterly Focused Topic Reports

Leveraging Jane’s unmatched procurement forecast content, each quarter we generate a unique report based of a set of highly focused questions around a current topic of high interest. Our Markets Forecast database is then used to quantitatively answer those questions, delivering a Tableau based report that is both insightful and relevant to the global defence industry.

Our report compiles each of these product elements (topic, questions, results) into a Tableau dashboard that allows users to view questions and results in several ways:

1. Quarterly Focused Topic Report (Full) – The complete version of each quarter’s focused report specifically addressing overall industry (non-proprietary) needs. Available for purchase to both subscribing and non-subscribing clients of Jane’s Market Forecast. Delivered via e-mail using Go Anywhere, displayable via Tableau Reader.

2. Quarterly Focused Topic Report (Excerpt) – An insightful, introductory excerpt from the full, complete version of each quarter’s focused report. Available free of charge to current subscribers to any current market offered within Jane’s Market Forecast. Accessible via Markets Forecast landing page, displayable via Tableau Reader.

Custom Reports

A Markets Forecast customised report is highly similar to full quarterly focused topic reports but where product elements (topic, questions, and desired results) address specific needs of a single client.

Custom reports are available for purchase by both subscribing and non-subscribing clients of Jane’s Market Forecast. Delivered via email using Go Anywhere, displayable via Tableau Reader. Custom reports are deemed proprietary in nature and hence delivered solely, exclusively to the sponsoring client.

Content Delivery

Markets Forecast content is available in multiple formats to align with user workflows. Online access provides users with instant access to the very latest content, with new content and updates available immediately.

Online Intelligence Briefings

Subscribers to Markets Forecast receive complimentary access to Jane’s Online Intelligence Briefings.
