technological and competitive intelligence
Explanation:
This has to do with e-business / business intelligence.

Canada uses :
Techno-Watch and Strategic Alert

I have seen :
techno-watch and competitive intelligence

CONTEXT:
In the information society, knowledge is increasingly considered a vital part of the assets that make it possible for organizations to maintain or improve their market competitiveness. The concept of "intelligence" (strategic, technological or competitive), although still recent and vague for many managers, is gaining in importance in our knowledge-based society. And yet this is not a new phenomenon: commercial intelligence has always been of strategic value to countries, just as knowledge has often been equated with power throughout history.


In fact, they are more or less synonymous : techno-watch or competitive intelligence

veille concurrentielle = veille à la concurrence = competitive intelligence
business intelligence system

SEE:
Comme son nom l'indique, son domaine d'observation est l'univers concurrentiel. Elle peut permettre ainsi, par exemple, de mieux connaître les techniques de vente et de distribution des concurrents et leur politique de communication.

veille technologique n f = techno-watch
Surveillance de l'environnement de l'entreprise facilitant une adaptation rapide aux changements de ce dernier.
