Computer industry market information: tabular market data, statistics, and forecasts
by Amelia Kassel
WEB WISE WAYS column highlights a small company called Data Analysis
Group of Cloverdale, CA. Reports that this niche market publisher
and database producer ceased publication of the printed version of
"Computer Industry Forecasts" and now exists exclusively on the
Web under the name InfoTech Trends. Relates that InfoTech Trends
isolates data from full-text articles and creates a tabular format
only, a fast and easy way to retrieve and view statistical
information. Also discusses TableBase, which is available from
Responsive Database Services of Beechwood, OH, and offers comparable
speedy access to hard market data and statistics in tabular forms.
Adds that it covers a much broader range of industries than InfoTech
Trends. Concludes that each of these databases contains high-quality
information that is quick and easy to access.
Includes six screen displays, four tables, and a sidebar.
