Planning & Direction
Identifying your intelligence needs is the first step in the Business Intelligence cycle. If you begin collecting data with only a vague idea of what is needed, you will quickly become overwhelmed by the volume of information that is available.
Gather the data
Comet Way uses automated software robots to collect timely information from Internet sources. This information can be analyzed on it's own or combined with other business data to provide additional context.
Create Knowledge from the Information
At this step, the collected data points are distilled into actionable reports that reveal trends, implications and possible outcomes. Analysis can take minutes or days. Quality analysis is not always measured by the time invested; experience and preparation are important for success.
Deliver and disseminate the intelligence in a coherent and timely manner.
