Competitive Intelligence

The DCIG Competitive Intelligence Portal is an online, SaaS offering from DCIG that contains DCIG’s published research and displays it in two forms: the DCIG Buyer’s Guides and the DCIG Interactive Buyer’s Guide (IBG). The DCIG Buyer’s Guide component of the Competitive Intelligence Portal provides copies of current and previous DCIG Buyer’s Guides which cover multiple different technologies and are published as PDF documents.

The DCIG IBG component of the DCIG Competitive Intelligence Portal presents DCIG’s underlying bodies of research from which the data in each Buyer’s Guide is derived. Using this online, interactive, visualization tool organizations can quickly and easily sort through and understand various products by comparing their specific features and functions.

The DCIG Competitive Intelligence Portal enables organizations to quickly and easily generate reports that do head-to-head comparisons between different products to show their respective strengths and weaknesses as well as where they share features in common. Using the IBG, reports may be quickly generated on-the-fly, saved as PDFs and then shared with others.

The data in the DCIG Competitive Intelligence Portal is made available to organizations through DCIG’s Open Research license. It works like this:

  1. DCIG gathers and aggregates data found on vendor web sites such as blogs, data sheets, admin and user guides as well as third party sites that is readily available but challenging to centralize, analyze, and then easily distribute
  2. Licensees receive a copy of this research that DCIG has done but with the flexibility to modify this research in any way they want so it becomes their research.
  3. Licensee receive logins to the DCIG Competitive Intelligence Portal, analyst hours to help them do research, and training to ensure their organization gets the most value from this product.
