Understand Your Customers and Competition, Spot Trends Across Your Industry
product marketing, competitive intelligence or M&A, you need to understand the trends across your industry and
to track the dynamics impacting your customers and competitors. But you can't spend all day searching the web
for this information, and traditional marketing databases (such as Factiva) quickly become outdated and take too
much time to use.
