Market Intelligence

Smart decisions require access to accurate, complete real-time data. Whilst the general public companies’ data is available, ripe and ready to be picked and analyzed this doesn’t hold true for the startup world and privately held companies.

Currently on offer, are a variety of databases, analysts and research services-based data providers. Most companies subscribe to one or more databases in an effort to keep up with the market and support decision-making process for M&A, strategic investments, corporate innovation and product and competitor intelligence.

These solutions are expensive, offer limited value being data rather than intelligence-driven. Depict a snapshot, at times, out of date view of the startup landscape and largely depend on publicly available data voluntarily submitted offering little in the way of real time insights.

“in 2015 only 5% of the total addressable private data market of $26.5B was tapped. This market is predicted to grow exponentially over the next 5 years ”

Enterprises actively operating in a global marketplace are challenged by its diversity and scale. The complexity of acquiring and processing information, limits the organization ability to support these processes:

  • Coping with a data overload resulting from too many sectorial or regional reports, across multiple jurisdictions, verticals, languages, and technologies
  • 100% focus on historical facts without the ability to foresee emerging and future trends
  • Inability to differentiate collected data according to domain specific knowledge, and judge how it can impact different and at times conflicting business goals
  • Inherent latency, causing inability to react to swift changes, and missing pockets of opportunities and exposure to threats
  • Many organizations revert to utilizing external service providers, however these are rarely domain-specific, and may have a biased view
