Information systems harness the potential to alter the competitive landscape by fostering better decision making.

How have expectations for technology capabilities and user experience changed over time, and how might you leverage these changes to your company’s advantage?

Intelligence information collection techniques are evolving at vastly different rates: ten years ago, data gathering transitioned quickly from hard copy to digital formats. Other data collection methods have been more resistant to the drivers of change. Web scraping and page tracking techniques have demonstrated ongoing relevance.

Which collection capabilities change the landscape today?

On-premise installations of expensive, high-maintenance systems continue to pose stubborn challenges, in the meanwhile.

In this transitional environment for intelligence systems, IT innovations prompt inquiries such as: How will cloud-based software and tailored deliverables foster efficiencies and contribute to better decision-making? What will the ever-growing user expectations for data visualization performance mean for intelligence analysts and managers? How can intelligence teams be expected to get the right information to the right decision maker at the right time?

Which features of new technologies are most critical to your company? How are collection methodologies, processing abilities, analytical capabilities, information dissemination features, and other components of information systems poised to make impact in your organization?
