Beeing Patient and Consistent
Let me start with one great Dalmatian proverb…
paraphrased to English… Pressure did not caught the mouse but lurking and long waiting
To translate proverb to Information Systems language:
Can huge money investments without internal knowledge and resources ”catch the mouse” – create superior decision-making strategic simulator?

“catch the mouse” support long-term sustainable profit from competitive intelligence.
