Supply market intelligence (SMI) means the capability to develop and sustain superior knowledge about key supply market characteristics. This paper presents empirical results gathered from focus groups and case studies about how and why companies capture and use SMI. The results are presented using an initial classification framework on SMI. The results suggest that SMI methods can be categorized as ad-hoc/project based or continuous, and as focused or comprehensive.
