Next SCIA Event: SCIA Theme Day 2013 November 19th, 2013
State-of-the Art Technology Developments and User Experience
Data collection, analysis and dissemination are a massive task, consuming disproportionate time of an intelligence practitioner. Specialized providers have been developing software solutions for automated and systematic information collection, aggregation and preparation. At our annual vendors’ event, an overview will be presented of these state-of-the-art technology developments, and a practitioner will share his experiences with the appraisal of these tools and the integration of the selected solution in his intelligence practice. The panel discussion will provide an opportunity to share your own experiences and to inform yourselves about the advantages of using these tools within your own organizations.
