Intelligence systems - intelligence 2020In the 10 years plus we've been researching developments in news and current awareness, we've predicted and then seen a significant shift from current awareness to intelligence systems.

However, the concept of "intelligence" can be difficult to describe let alone measure. Its purpose may be hard to quantify for the C-suite. The tools may be different to what information teams are currently using and comfortable with.

In this Research Focus we examine three main areas:

  1. Articulating the business need for intelligence
  2. Balancing three key factors in your intelligence system
  3. Continuous improvement as an essential ingredient of intelligence 2020.

What you'll get from the Research Focus:

  • Updated product reviews and market landscapes on core products in this area
  • Expanded view on technology platforms and features in the intelligence space
  • Tools and processes for breaking down and determining the value of intelligence and current awareness
  • Tools and processes for better defining the specific use-cases for intelligence.

Find out more through our unmissable articles, reports, original research, webinars and Community sessions.
