Business Intelligence-the acquisition, management, and utilization of information-is crucial in the global marketplace of the 21st-century. This savvy handbook explains how even the smallest firm can use inexpensive Web resources to create an Internet Business Intelligence System (IBIS) that rivals the multimillion-dollar systems of Fortune 500 companies. IBIS tracks competitors, explore markets, and evaluates opportunities and risks. It can also be used to launch a business, find customers, test new products, and increase sales.
