Intelligence for Companies with a stake in Japan
Japan Risk, Operations, and Business Intelligence
Choose from Daily or Weekly Reporting Options.
Intelligence is categorized broadly as either “risk” or “operational” intelligence.
Weekly reporting separates this data into two separate reports, sent out Mondays and Tuesdays.
Daily reporting puts both kinds of intelligence in one report, called the Daily Briefing.
DAILY REPORTING FORMAT
Japan Daily Briefing
The Daily Japan Daily Briefing is everything in one hard-hitting daily package. It includes all the features and data available in the weekly reports (as detailed below), but as a daily report.
The advantages of a daily report include:
- All the intelligence of the weekly reports
- more-timely information
- greater relevance
- easier to digest
- everything in one place
- a great way to start your day
WEEKLY REPORTING FORMAT
The advantages of the weekly formats are a separation of risk and operational data, and fewer emails per week.
Japan Risk Monitor
The Japan Risk Monitor is all-things risk for Japan. We cover over 40 categories of risk issues, from epidemics and pandemics to North Korea tensions to regulatory enforcement actions. We source from over 200 media and individual sources, both international and local.
The Risk Monitor’s sections include: “What just happened” analysis, key issues and events upcoming in the new week, key new developments analysis, news and social media monitoring, government releases, foreign embassy releases, and business association releases.
Japan Ops Monitor
The Japan Ops Monitor is our business and economics monitoring tool for Japan. We cover over 40 categories of operational issues, from asset price fluctuations to trade issues to demographics. We source from over 200 media and individual sources, both international and local.
The Ops Monitors sections include: “What just happened” analysis, key new developments analysis, decisions and initiatives, the Asia economic grid, new economic indicators, news and social media, government releases, foreign embassy releases, and business association releases.
Japan Insights (Enterprise subscription)
The Japan Insights Report is a weekly deeper dive into the key issues along with bespoke indices and analysis.
The Japan Insights sections include: Issues and Variables analysis, Erudite’s Political and Economic Uncertainty Index and analysis of the index, the North Korea Perceived Risk Index and the North Korea Mindshare Index, and “What Japan is thinking about right now.”
All reports are delivered by email and may be viewed in an email client or on the web. No logins, no attachments to open.

What is the Erudite Intelligence Package?
The Erudite Intelligence Package is a collection of three reports that work together to provide a comprehensive monitoring and analysis solution for a specific Asian country’s business environment.
Where do you get the data used in your reports?
All data in our reports is collected from open sources: news media, social media, government agencies, business associations, foreign embassies, blogs, think tanks, podcasts, and online videos.
- Data is updated daily. We collect thousands of new data points: articles, tweets, press releases, data releases, etc. each day from across Asia and the world.
- All delivered data includes links and references to original source material. This allows you to dig deeper when you desire.
- All analysis derived from source materials includes links and references to original source material.
What kind of value-added analysis do you provide?
The Erudite Intelligence Package provides the following value-added analysis in the Pro and Enterprise versions:
- Developments. Pro level reports may include one or more “developments” analyses each week.
- Bespoke indices. We have created various bespoke indices, based on mining the data we collect. We believe these indices function as reliable indicators for some of the recurring questions those on the ground ask, such as “How do people on the ground in South Korea feel about the possibility of a war?” Our North Korea Perceived Risk Index seeks to provide a running answer to that question.
- Issue Tracking. We track more than 50 issues across time. These issues may be global, regional, or national in scope. These issues are large topics such as the war in Ukraine, and as such, impact variables and indicators business leaders rely on to make decisions on the ground in Asia.
- Variable Tracking. We track more than 100 variables across time as well, such as economic indicators, demographic indicators, and commonly used language.
- Our indices, issues, and variables are all inputs into the analysis process.
Who is currently subscribing to the Erudite Intelligence Package?
Current subscribers to the Pro and Enterprise level reports include major retail and investment banks, consumer goods brands, F&B brands, luxury goods brands, and energy companies. Our reports serve multiple roles inside each company (from P&L to HR to Security to Compliance) and are applicable to virtually every industry.
What are the use-cases of the service?
