Emerging information and communication technologies promise to fundamentally change how analysis is produced and used by key customers in the coming years. A major transition is just getting underway as producers of analytic products shift from delivering static, hardcopy narrative papers to relying increasingly on more dynamic, digitally-based modes of presentation. Tomorrow’s intelligence consumer will be increasingly inclined to seek information and analytic insights in digital and interactive formats. The ability of producers of analysis to adapt intelligence deliverables meet this challenge could well determine whether such analytic units remain competitive in an era of digital communication.
