Supplyframe CIQ was developed specifically to address the challenges of traditional supply information sources in the electronics value chain.

Too often, commodity professionals are forced to navigate fragmented, outdated, and inconsistent datasets that do not provide actionable, interconnected intelligence.

The Supplyframe CIQ solution draws from a vast specialist network that includes subject matter experts, commodity managers, and technology analysts to deliver real-world assessments of ever-shifting market dynamics–across 30 sub-commodities, with four-quarter rolling forecasts and now-casting of previously-unavailable sourcing, demand, and engineering design-cycle indicators.
