It means evaluate a partner considering a wider number of significant documents with information providers able to collect and elaborate data coming from different sources.

Business Information providers have to become more and more a ‘hub’ able to evaluate risks under different perspective, giving to market ability to take decisions based on a wider awareness and knowledge.
