Finding Good Tech Through Market Intelligence Understanding where and how to find the solutions you need can be difficult–and knowing what to look for is even harder. Conducting market intelligence is a vital part of any acquisition, but it can be challenging to understand the viability of solutions offered by non-traditional vendors. Join us for a discussion with Dcode on how to conduct market intelligence. In this discussion, you will learn more about where you find companies with innovative solutions, information you should seek out to make informed decisions, the questions you should ask to gather that information, and the tools you can leverage to get your research done quickly.
