Tools and Technologies
At GDIC, we are well aware of the importance of competitive intelligence to our customers, and constantly thrive to use advanced and reliable technologies to provide our customers with high-quality results.
In continuously gathering strategic competitive intelligence, we deploy Robotic Process Automation. In addition to saving time and cost and providing our customers higher ROI, RPA enables GDIC data collectors to consistently and accurately collect and disseminate data from thousands of sources for long periods of time. Collected data is pre-processed by AI-enabled intelligent software that is able to semantically identify competitive information and tag them for later processing. Huge amounts of data are stored in Hadoop-based cloud data stores, and processed based on rules our analysts have defined. In a later stage, the tagged and filtered data is entered into a graph database where data nodes are setup and relationship among them are created. From here, pre-trained intelligent algorithms are used to discover patterns in the data, and extract the information related to the competitive factors that were specified in the earlier stages of the project.
These technologies complement the expertise and experience of our analysts and data specialists. They supervise the process and provide their valuable input where needed. The final analysis and report is a collective effort of a team of our analysts and data workers, aided by the technologies described above.
