Competitive Intelligence: Forecasting Competitors’ Moves and Boosting Upselling Opportunities for an Industrial Equipment Manufacturer

December 10, 2018

Why is Competitive Intelligence Analysis Important for Businesses?

With markets and companies witnessing rapid changes in products and competitors, leveraging competitive intelligence techniques has become a mandatory practice. Competitive intelligence analysis is a systematic program that is engaged by a company for gathering and analyzing information about its competitor’s business activities and trends to further its own goals. Competitive intelligence analysis is the process of acknowledging the market competitors, by gathering and analyzing the resources that are publicly accessible to determine a pattern. The data generated from such an engagement can, therefore, be further employed to forecast the market dynamics as well as the way the market is getting affected. This helps to enhance the business decision-making ability of companies.
