L'intelligence economique et le marché de l'information stratégique


  • Blandine Laperche

    () (labrii, ULCO)


L'intelligence économique est désormais un domaine d'activités économiques à part entière. Ceci peut s'expliquer par trois séries de facteurs étudiés dans ce document : le rôle de l'information dans la concurrence mondiale fondée sur l'innovation et dans l'organisation des entreprises mondialisées ; la « privatisation » des dispositifs nationaux d'intelligence économique ; les progrès des techniques de diffusion et de traitement de l'information. L'imbrication de ces trois facteurs se traduit par le développement sans précédent de l'industrie (apparition de nouveaux acteurs, de nouveaux métiers) et du marché de l'information. Les informations stratégiques, qui en étant intégrées dans les processus d'organisation et de réalisation de la production des firmes, facilitent l'innovation et améliorent la gestion des actifs des firmes, deviennent des marchandises de plus en plus coûteuses. Alors seules les plus grandes firmes, qui disposent d'importantes ressources humaines, financières, scientifiques et techniques peuvent accéder et s'approprier ces précieuses informations. Business Intelligence is today a real field of economic activities in itself. This can be explained by three series of factors studied in this document : the role of information in the global competition based on innovation and in the organisation of global firms ; the « privatisation » of the national systems of Business Intelligence ; the progress of techniques of information processing and broadcasting. The overlapping of those three factors results in the development without precedent of the industry (new actors ; new professions) and the market of information. Strategic information, while being integrated in the process of organisation and realisation of production, facilitate innovation and improve the management of the firms' assets, and therefore are becoming some more and more expensive goods. Thus, only the larger firms, which have important human, financial, scientific and technical resources have access to and appropriate themselves those precious information.
