This research analyzes the potential impact of social media gathered data in the competitive intelligence process of organizations. It does so by utilizing a mixed method research approach to better comprehend two phenomena. First, what is the current state of the competitive intelligence processes within companies? Secondly, an exploration of the potential contribution of social media to the competitive intelligence processes and how organizations can benefit from this. To draw understanding from these topics, qualitative and quantitative methods are employed, specifically interviews and surveys.
