Company databases do a good job of informing you about a company's history, products, goals, and organizational structure. The financial sections include annual income statements and balance sheets, market & industry activity, and sometimes data for business segments. All data is printable and exportable.
Industry data will be more generalized and often is important by segment. Industry reports are large in scope, but usually include some percentages for major companies and/or sub-industries in the sector, so you can get a broader perspective on an industry's activity.
