Internet has been a major source to acquire enterprise competitive intelligence. But what types of competitive intelligence are hidden in the Internet? This paper presents an answer to this question. In this paper, a conceptual framework to represent the competitive intelligence in the Internet is introduced. The basic idea is to use an entity-oriented method to capture the semantics of the competitive intelligence in the Internet. Traditional approaches regard the competitive intelligence in the Internet as a set of Web pages, which leads to a large amount of manual processing work.
