Corporate intelligence refers to the collection, analysis, and dissemination of information that is relevant to a company’s decision-making processes. This includes information on competitors, markets, customers, suppliers, and other business-related topics.
The goal of corporate intelligence is to provide insights and strategic guidance to companies, enabling them to make informed decisions and stay ahead of their competition. This information is often gathered through a variety of sources, including market research, data analysis, and competitive benchmarking.
Further, corporate intelligence is the act of gathering time valuable information to be used for investment, M&A and marketing purposes or sold to other corporations, but is also regularly shared with government agencies.
It can be used as a form of business intelligence, which enables the corporation to better tailor their products and/or services to be desirable by their customers.
Although there is a common belief that monitoring can increase productivity, it can also create consequences such as increasing chances of deviant behaviour and creating punishments that are not equitable to their actions.
The monitoring of customers or workers can cause resistance and a backlash because it insinuates suspicion.
