Competitive Intelligence


Internet Automation

Creating competitive advantages for clients


Competitive Intelligence is more than making pictures with data you already have. CI is knowing as much as possible about your competitors and markets while developing an internal organizational knowledge base.

The Internet facilitates unique opportunities for Competitive Intelligence because it can be collected remotely, anonymously, and automatically. Furthermore, the data collected while performing Competitive Intelligence may be immediately analyzed and made actionable.



With the 1st and 2nd editions of "Webbots, Spiders, and Screen Scrapers (2012, No Starch Press, San Francisco)" Michael Schrenk literally wrote the book on automating the web. Automation opens the Internet to amazing competitive opportunities in: procurement, Counterintelligence, Merchandising, and much more.


Schrenk's given Internet Strategy lectures in The USA, Eastern & Western Europe and North Africa. He's been interviewed by BBC twice and is a six-time DEFCON speaker.
