“Information Superiority” is a relative state obtained through the production and spreading of “Effective Intelligence” derived from a smart exploitation of the “Information Advantage”. Such superiority lets the organizations:
Have the precise knowledge of the situations, share it and manage it (Situational Awareness).
Learn patterns and build models (Deep Knowledge).
Early warning of risks and opportunities ( Strategic Knowledge).
Obtain strategic and operational surprise ( High Precision Strategies).
Power of action (decision making power, planning, intervention, negotiation,protection, combat, deception & deterrence).
Capacity of applying (managing, planning, command and control, operation & execution).
To be able to obtain the information advantage is necessary to have the dominance of the information owned and potentially accessible by the organization.

A set of tools to help the producing Intelligence process.
A transfer of knowledge that allows the intelligence analysts to use existing procedures, methods, techniques and tools effectively.
