What is Competitive intelligence?

Business or Competitive intelligence is the life blood of your organisation - knowing what your competitors are doing, how you rank, and how investors and partners see you is critical to your decisions. Whether you need to analyse your competitors' pricing strategies, market positioning, or overall strategy you need competitive intelligence.
It is the intelligence - not the information - that helps you respond with the right market tactic or long-term decision. To say that "the insurance company is launching a new product," or "the competitor's level of production is up to 90% of its capacity," is merely information. It becomes actionable intelligence when you can conclude that "the manufacturer has reached a cost position that will eliminate us from the market, unless we can reduce our overheads," or "the insurance company's new product is only a me-too introduction and is no immediate threat. We can wait..."
Unfortunately, the term is widely misunderstood, diluting the power of the Competitive Intelligence concept. Competitive Intelligence is more than just data or information - it is in essence "analysed information".
