Competitive Intelligence

Dear All,

Can someone give an insight into the area of "competitive Intelligence (CI)" and its relevance in practice and how does the Big 3 approach this topic.

Regards

Hi,

BIG3 companies can not share the data of their clients. What they can do - share the anonymized and sanitized industry benchmarks if they collected enough information

When you need to get some competitive data - you may use the open sources, industry reports, experts interviews (GLG, etc) or any data you can aggregate from open sources.
