CIO
Generally thought of as having up to 500 employees, small businesses constitute the vast majority of companies in many countries worldwide, making them a critical part of the economy.

Firms working to bulk up intelligence analysis functions
The Legal Intelligencer via Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Law firms are creating formalized competitive intelligence positions and departments. And that has meant finding the rare person, or in most cases a group of people, who have the skills to gather, synthesize and analyze data with the ability to present in a way that distills the information and provides insights or suggested action plans.
