Market intelligence, where information on the business environment is systematically gathered, processed and analyzed in order to aid decision-making, will include more holistic risk management and greater cross-organizational collaboration within the next five years, according to the Market Intelligence Trends 2015 survey from Global Intelligence Alliance.
Overall, global executives expect their companies to have moved away from the traditional “analysis silos” approach by 2015 and to have organization-wide risk management systems that will analyze business opportunities and threats in a more comprehensive manner. In other words, they expect to have market intelligence systems that are capable of including multiple views on the external business environment, by fostering greater communication and collaboration between different geographical and functional units which perform different macroeconomic, customer, technology and competitor analysis.

Predictions for market intelligence (2010-2015)
1. Greater collaboration and “co-creation”. Market intelligence professionals intend to collaborate more closely with executives, sales people and company experts, to develop their organization’s market intelligence infrastructure and deliverables and to better link them to the decision points that the company executives are facing. More cross-border collaborations will be encouraged in order to capture global trends and events, and a greater focus will be placed on roundtable discussions, scenario analysis workshops and war gaming or other forms of collaborative techniques.
Also of increasing importance will be the ability to benchmark against competitor products and services and collate ideas, thoughts and opinions from experts about how their markets are changing.
Use of Market intelligence in 2015
|1st Priority – Collaboration||Discussions, comments, dialogue between people within the internal network|
Intelligence teams to present conclusions to management (that may even challenge prevailing business assumptions) rather than merely delivering neutral analysis
|2nd Priority – Benchmarking and Expert Advice||Comparison with and benchmarking against competitor products and services|
Ideas, thoughts and opinions from experts about how the marketplace is changing
|3rd Priority – Business information ||Broad trends and themes about consumer and household behavior|
Numbers, figures and hard facts about competitors’ or customers’ performance
Industry-level indicators, price data, market size and market share data
Macroeconomic indicators and forecasts to help understand business cycles
2. Market intelligence will be better integrated with other internal processes. As a result of greater collaboration across organizational divisions, the market intelligence function is expected to be better integrated into business processes such as sales and marketing, innovation, strategy and planning.
3. Mobile and social media tools become part of the market intelligence process. Market intelligence professionals also say they are working towards the integration of social media tools and mobile services into their information collection and communication processes by the year 2015. Online tools such as wikis, podcasts and webcasts will be part of the norm. The more sophisticated companies even expect to use Global Positioning Systems (GPSs) to provide geo-demographical data.
Technologies that will change the way business information is shared (2010-2015)
4. Focus of market intelligence talent development moves from data-cruncher to advisor. Market intelligence professionals are increasingly expected to add value in a greater variety of ways, from market facts to strategic insights. As such, they will need to hone both their ‘hard’ skills in increasingly popular analysis methods such as strategy maps and alternative scenario simulations, as well as their ‘soft’ skills in facilitating, consulting and people management.
