Global Market Information Database (GMID)

Global Market Information Database (GMID), now renamed Passport, from Euromonitor is one of the most used databases available through the library. It provides a wide range of business intelligence on industries, consumers and countries both as statistics and reports. It is available on line and relatively easy to use.

The MBS Library service had a brief introductory GMID guide but this does not include the most recent improvements to Passport (formerly GMID).

It is not surprising that many other business schools also use Passport (formerly GMID) and have provided tips on using it.

      If you are a student at Manchester Business School, or another part of the University of Manchester, then you don’t need to subscribe to Passport (formerly GMID) but you might need to register when you first use it.

      If you are not at MBS or UoM then you can find details at Euromonitor International’s Passport home page – http://go.euromonitor.com/Passport-Home – for details follow the “Terms of Use” link at the foot of the page.

    How can I get a market environmental analysis for Blackberry phones ie their PESTLE AND SWOT ananlsis?

      Normally a SWOT or PESTLE analysis is for a company (Blackberry ltd) rather than for a product (Blackberry phones).
      You could try Thomson Research for an analysts report (e.g. by Globaldata or Datamonitor).
      See https://bizlib247.wordpress.com/2012/10/22/researching-a-uk-company-reports-and-data/
      There are several articles on Blackberry in Passport (GMID) – you could use information from then in your own SWOT or PESTLE analysis.

    For SWOT analysis, Thomson Research analyse reports are very nice choise I think.
