Thank you so much! I think your answer covers the point most comprehensively, although it is a bit long-winding.
Thanks also to all the others who contributetd! MatsWitman: I know what you mean, intelligence sounds like espionage to me too. But industrial espionage is a crime, whereas these people run a legitimate business (doing somethig rather similar).

geschäftliches Informationswesen


Explanation:
This will cover everything and is a usual description, sometimes even for a department in larger German Corporations.
"Geschäftsspionage" is too limiting and has an indecent tenor.

"Informationswesen" is avaibale on Google for reference.

Managementunterstützung durch Informationsauswertung


Explanation:
As no offline or online dictionary suggests a reasonable German target term, I have created my own one that I use in my translations to explain what this hype stuff i intended to mean. However, in many cases, I leave the term untranslated.
