A successful business enterprise is a combination of many aspects. Amongst the top reasons for successful businesses has been skills, core competence & knowledge. It is also the result of understanding the pulse of the market and being aware of the market conditions.

Many a times, it is precisely this lack of awareness that leads to the difference between success / mediocre success or failure. To gain that competitive advantage it is essential to have a in-depth knowledge of the industry and the competition in the immediate sphere.
