Challenges Faced by Clients

Uncertainty is the
only Certainty

Truer today than it’s ever been
The environment in which we operate and run our businesses and organizations continues to change at ever increasing rate and this creates challenges and of course opportunities. The ultimate winners are those that effectively interpret what’s going on and stay ahead of the curve by taking quick, data driven, business critical strategic decisions.  With an ever more complex web of information and disinformation at our fingertips, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to cut through the noise.
According to a Forrester study, 71% of businesses find it difficult to gather and analyze pertinent data to produce useful insights. Another survey by Gartner reveals that 44% of data and analytics (D&A) leaders within organizations find it challenging to align market intelligence initiatives with their overall business objectives.
At Cognition, we understand the importance of effectively integrating market intelligence initiatives with the broader strategic planning process.  We help businesses stay ahead in an ever-changing market with our bespoke market reports. We offer strategic insights tailored to our clients’ specific business needs, empowering them to define and drive sustainable growth.
