New York – 19 September 2013: Alacra, Inc., a leading provider of business information solutions for financial institutions and professional service firms announced the release of the Alacra Periodic Table of Business Research Databases. The new periodic table is the latest in a series of web tools for understanding the information world. The Periodic Table of Business Research Databases helps people seeking reliable business information for building an investment case.

Since 1996, Alacra has provided firms access to the world’s top databases, allowing simultaneous searching across competing services. This includes Alacra’s award winning enterprise tools, Alacra Book and Alacra Premium. In recent years, interest in pay-per-view research led to With the explosion of available information in the past 15 years, it is increasingly difficult to understand which databases are best for certain needs. With that in mind, we created this handy reference tool to guide novices and experts alike.

Business Research Database Periodic Table

While many business students and even market researchers can mine the internet for free data, such data is not ideal for making multi-billion dollar decisions. When a corporate strategist chooses a forecast from Datamonitor or cites a rating from Moody’s Investors Service, their colleagues can be confident in the basis for the recommendation to invest. Alacra has worked with the world’s top research services that have been trusted by professionals for years.

The Alacra Periodic Table of Business Research Databases helps businesses find better data by offering a clear list of highly regarded services in categories like Economics or Market Research. This new reference source allows business researchers of all types – consultants, lawyers, market strategists – to quickly discover the most relevant resource for their current need.
