Sure, there are
Companies services out there that cover more industries than we do.
But for the defense, aerospace, and
government technology companies
you actually care about, nothing
comes close to DACIS Companies.

 

 

 

DACIS Companies specializes in covering defense, aerospace, and government technology companies—and that's all.

Because we don't cover the waterfront like our competition, we can dive deeper on the companies you care about. We report on their operating segments, their divisions, their subsidiaries, their joint ventures, their equity interests.  You compete at those levels, so we compete there too.

This is multiple-source competitive intelligence. The information is public but the processes and presentation are proprietary. The coverage is deep, and updated continuously, so you'll never miss a step in keeping up.

FEATURES
 
Millions of Companies
We began by creating a proprietary Companies module which contains in-depth information on more than 2,000 large and mid-sized defense, aerospace and government technology firms.  Then we created a powerful version of the U.S. government's System for Award Management (SAM), gaining more than a million companies more.  The harmonization of Companies and SAM allows DACIS to provide a deep and comprehensive industrial picture of the industry.
 
 
Joint Ventures and Equity Stakes
When a business has more than one owner, we take care to reflect the full arrangements in DACIS Companies.  Its two or more owners will reflect the joint venture appropriately within their structures, with ownership percentages reflected where known.  
 
 
Full Integration With the Industry's Leading M&A Service
Published since 1990, Defense Mergers & Acquisitions (DM&A) has established a reputation as the leading source of strategic analysis and insight for the defense, aerospace and government technology industries.  DACIS Companies is fully integrated with DM&A.  How fully?  The company whose acquisition was closed today is integrated into the structure of its buyer, today.  With proprietary insight into what the deal means for buyer and seller.  
 
 
Integration with U.S. Government Databases
The coverage in DACIS Companies are thorough, complete and insightful.  And it takes on new dimensions of usefulness in its integration with several U.S. government databases—the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS), FedBizOpps, System for Award Management (SAM) and the DoD Budget—all of which we've integrated into DACIS.  
 
 
The Back Story
We've been doing what we do for decades—time enough to have tracked the industry through thousands of reorganizations, name changes, acquisitions, etc. These are all faithfully recorded in DACIS Companies. As the saying goes, those who don't learn from history are doomed to spin their wheels figuring out what went on seven years ago when the work they're pursuing was originally competed.

TESTIMONIALS
"We have to understand what's happening in the information technology market place and need more than new variations on company rankings. To dig, investigate and explain what our competitors are doing, there's nothing like this service."
Thomas Auld, Manager, Business Intelligence, Northrop Grumman Information Technology
"The DACIS system is the most recent addition to our BD Toolbox and has quickly gained support among our users. It is a comprehensive system, containing numerous modules. It provides the user so much detailed information, it's almost like having a CI analyst working right along with you!"
Saundra L. Bowersox, Director, Competitive Intelligence, L-3 MPRI
"When using subscription databases for Price to Win (PTW), I spend 80% of my time in DACIS because it provides the most complete and comprehensive competitive intelligence of any service on the market. DACIS enables us to quickly get a snapshot of a market, competitor, or program without having to spend significant time searching multiple sources. Thank you!"
