Military leaders live by the maxim "know your enemy," and a new tool from marketing-intelligence company GinzaMetrics helps apply that wisdom to business.

Called Competitor Discovery, the SaaS tool gives companies a way to identify new competitors by analyzing the content, targeted topics and keywords from their own marketing efforts.

"The competitors you know about are only half the battle," said Ray Grieselhuber, GinzaMetrics' founder and CEO. "For most brands, new competitors are constantly emerging, while existing players are shifting focus to create content that drives traffic away from your site."

Competitor Discovery joins the other components of GinzaMetrics' suite of competitor intelligence tools, which help keep tabs on a customer's industry and other players. Part of what that suite offers is daily monitoring of content from GinzaMetrics' own customers and their competitors, factoring in social media, SEO and paid efforts.

Once Competitor Discovery has identified a new rival, it offers insight into the content, topics and keywords that might be driving visitors from your site to theirs.

Cost-per-click, search volume and search ranking status, along with a predictive "findability score" and projected traffic data, all aim to help customers plan future marketing and advertising decisions.

The findability score shows the likelihood that your company will be found by potential customers searching with particular keywords. The projected traffic metric predicts how many visitors are going to a competitor's site based on the topics and keywords you're tracking, and estimates the potential audience for each piece of content.

Pricing for GinzaMetrics' service starts at US$1,000 per month for a version targeting small teams and startups.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
