About GIQ Corporate Knowledge Index (CKI)
GIQ Corporate Knowledge Index (CKI) is a standalone methodology that provides a quantifiable answer to a pertinent question – how much knowledge does a company create and make available to the public?
To answer the questions above, Gulf Intelligence created the GIQ Corporate Knowledge Index (CKI). By defining knowledge as content a company creates that is engaging and establishing engagement as the ability to attract, retain and educate a defined audience, we were able to produce a sophisticated methodology that measures the amount of knowledge a company creates and shares to its public audience. To see how things stacked up, we analyzed the Top 10 Publically Traded UAE Companies by market capitalization (2015) over the course of Q1 2016, Q2 2016 and Q3 2016. At Gulf Intelligence, we believe that successful knowledge exchange between industry and the public is a critical component of transparency and the foundation for developing a knowledge economy. And as per the UAE’s Vision 2021, “Outstanding information and communication will network our businesses together and give them a leading edge as they transact and interact with the world. Individual citizens will also reap the benefits of efficient connectedness in their lives as they search for knowledge and the fulfillment of intellectual curiosity.”
