In the annual selection, Intelligent Enterprise named the leaders in providing IT products that help organizations achieve competitive advantage by gathering, analyzing, sharing and acting upon intelligence. e.Intelligence was chosen as an industry leader in the "Intelligence" space, one of four categories highlighted.
"The 48 Intelligent Enterprise Companies to Watch enable organizations across all industries to gain increased business insight through the real-time flow of information across their enterprise and beyond," said David Stodder, Editorial Director of Intelligent Enterprise. "We selected e.Intelligence as a 2003 Company to Watch due to its vision, its value-generating solutions for both retailers and manufacturers, and its strong company leadership."
