Companies are embedded in a wider environment than just their customers and themselves. Competitors, suppliers, partners, distributors, dealers and new entrants all have influence over a company’s business environment. Competitively successful organizations must develop and rely upon an effective evaluation of their environment utilizing a wide array of intelligence sources. That’s where ENGINE’s Company Assessments can help!

Our company assessments are just as powerful as syndicated reports, and about the same cost as syndicated reports, but are tailored to you and your business. Below is a peek inside some of what you get from our Company Assessment offering – take a look at just some of the impactful insights we can share to help you grow and expand your business.


Our team of analysts evaluates published content leveraging ENGINE’s access to proprietary databases such as news, creatives and social media aggregators and then selects best-in-class sources with extensive information on Disney and Disney+. In conjunction with your specific needs, ENGINE crafts sophisticated research strategies that return the most relevant content while minimizing false positive hits. We examine the results tenaciously for references to tangential relevant sources to create a thorough list of key sources. After identifying the most relevant content, our analysts synthesize the findings into an informative narrative that addresses the specific business queries identified by you about the Disney+ business.


As an introduction to Disney+’s narrative, we include a comprehensive but concise corporate overview, key insights, and competitor matrix which encompasses all the key points of interest regarding Disney+’s business. This structure of an executive summary is standard in all of our profiles, which provides a fast, at-a-glance understanding of a company.
