What is Competitive Intelligence? And how does it benefit my business?
Competitive intelligence (CI) has existed
since the dawn of commerce and wherever there
is business competition. As practiced by leading
companies worldwide, it is more than simply
keeping an eye on your competitor. Over the
past couple of decades, CI has become a formal
discipline, with powerful tools, methods, and
processes that offer businesses more effective
ways to understand their competitive environments
and to minimize their risk.
Today's increased pace of business, globalization, and other factors mean that CI is more important than ever before. Competitive intelligence can help you:
- Understand and anticipate potential risks or opportunities for you and your rivals.
- Gain insights about your competitor's operations, strategies, and tactics.
- Support your company's strategic and tactical decision-making.
competitive intelligence products and services
are designed help you better understand CI and
effectively apply it to gain or maintain your
What is Market Research? And how does it benefit my business?
Market Research is a deceptively simple concept, usually defined as research conducted to understand the needs of the market. Traditionally, market research focuses on the customer; it tries to identify:
- Demographic & psychographic characteristics
- Behavior drivers
- Price sensitivity
- Opinions about products & services
Now market research must incorporate information about new technologies, competitive pressures, industry changes, and globalization to truly understand what is driving a market. Unless you understand how & why your customers purchase products/services AND how & why your competitors make their products/services, your own strategic plans may not be able to effectively guide your company to success.
Knowledge inForm's market research products and services are designed to help you evolve your market research projects from market research to market strategy.
