Intelligence Software Directory - 2009

This year we have deleted many entries and links as companies close, or merge. The directory will become an ongoing research project as more companies and organizations want to know more about available software products, and for ComLinks training courses and presentations.

We would like to thank the many software and hardware companies who have invited us to their workshops and User Group conferences and for spending time explaining their tools and products.

This year we have looked at the websites and asked the question "What does this product do?" Sadly in many cases we are still wondering. Many claim to be the "Worl'd's leading... " "Revolutionary" or other extravagant claims, but are so busy with superlatives that they forget to explain the purpose of the product.
