Formalised intelligence systems in organisations lead to identifying their technological abilities/capabilities and changes in their environment by transforming data into knowledge having strategic value. Technology intelligence systems (TIS) have emerged, involving the suitable incorporation of technology into production and entrepreneurial systems, thereby enabling their management and generating the basis for developing innovation. This article describes the work involved in defining a subsystem allowing TIS implementation to be followed-up and evaluated. The evolution of technological intelligence was thus reviewed; the pertinent literature regarding measuring TIS efficiency was analysed. A model involving the system's main variables was then constructed; its simulation was based on implementing intelligence in several agro-industrial chains. The model's main contributions to optimum TIS performance were then considered.
