August Jackson, Senior Director of Market and Competitive Intelligence at Deltek

TYSONS CORNER, VA, October 15, 2020 — ArchIntel is honored to present the 30th in a series of interviews with Competitive Intelligence and GovCon executives who share their insights about creating and sustaining a competitive advantage.

August Jackson, senior director of market and competitive intelligence at Deltek, gave ArchIntel an in-depth perspective about psychological biases and ethical considerations in gathering data, how automation tools are helping to facilitate that process as well as his outlook for artificial intelligence technology.

“Competitive Intelligence has changed since I came into the profession 20 years ago. Having access to data was the basis of Competitive Intelligence. Now, with the volume and speed of data, access really isn’t the question. The question is the ability to capture, interpret and build insight from data.”

To read August Jackson’s full interview, and gain insight into other competitive intelligence and analysis experts’ perspectives, view ArchIntel’s ‘Competitive Intelligence Spotlight Series.’

Jackson will deliver a keynote speech and moderate a panel discussion at ArchIntel’s AI in Competitive Intelligence forum on Oct. 22.
