Fresh off the success of the Alabama Experience (ALEX) at The World Games, the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama (EDPA) has established the Alabama Business Intelligence Center (ABIC) to aid in the recruitment and retention of industry in the state.
EDPA unveiled the initiative at the Economic Development Association of Alabama (EDAA) Summer Conference in Point Clear Monday.
“We feel like it’s really, really important to do a great job of business intelligence to start with,” said Greg Barker, EDPA president. “In fact, we think that will change the way we’re going about doing economic development in Alabama. Every other industry that you can think of is using business intelligence in a much, much more aggressive, intentional way than the economic development community, or at least it kind of feels that way.”
