Intelligence Pioneer in Asia


Actelligos is a trailblazer in the market and competitive intelligence arena, with a focus on the Asia Pacific region and global markets. Our expertise lies in intelligence research, and since 1998 we have been helping companies address the most pressing business questions for survival and success. From assessing market potential for new cancer treatments to tracking competitor movements in vehicle manufacturing, Actelligos provides insights that give executive decision-makers the confidence to act.


We have a rich history of teaching Asian executives and managers about market and competitive intelligence, starting in 2002 with workshops and seminars conducted in key cities such as Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Taipei. Our programs were designed to impart key knowledge of intelligence framework, process, and techniques, specifically as they are applied in the Asian setting. Business leaders from various backgrounds, including sales, marketing, strategy, business development, human resources, operations, finance, and the executive office, attended our programs, demonstrating that intelligence has evolved into a mainstream skill relevant across markets, industries, and job functions.


As the need for more advanced training in business analytics increased, we created the Advanced Intelligence Analytics course, Business WarGames program, and Scenarios & Strategies program to help companies process all the insights collected by their intelligence teams. Today, research remains our mainstream intelligence service, and we continue to evolve our programs to serve the intelligence and strategy professionals around Asia.
