III has amassed over two  decades of experience in serving the private and public sector clients, whether through subscription services or proprietary research and consulting services.

Investment banks, research organizations, national think-tanks, industry associations, and universities also rely on III's insights and professional advice.
Our exhaustive primary research methods are central to the value that III delivers. A combination of questionnaires and on-site visits to the major manufacturers provides a first-hand view of the latest data and trends. Information is subsequently validated by interviews with the manufacturers' suppliers and customers. This process is backed up by a cross-domain team-based approach, creating an interlaced network across numerous inter-related components and system-level devices to ensure statistical integrity and transparency.
Complementing our primary research is a running database of various industry and market information in the English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages. Dedicated research into the macro-environmental trends shaping the ICT space, from the societal, economic, legal, and political shifts, to ongoing advances issuing from the scientific community, also allows us to properly contextualize events and anticipate future trends. Offices and research missions in Taipei, Shanghai, Tokyo, Seoul, San Jose, and Dusseldorf, as well as partnerships or tie-ups with research organizations across the Asian region, further enables our on-the-ground direct approach.
