Abstract

This paper addresses an extraction method of time-series numerical data from enterprise press releases for business strategy design. Business strategy consists of logical actions for continuously producing enterprise outcome. The business strategy design process that is partially based on competitive environment analysis may extremely resort to professional skills so far. To enhance and accelerate the competitive environment analysis, we focus on press releases of competitors in order to extract numerical data related to products or services. Sentences in press releases are well organized and grammatically correct. Therefore such extraction is simply done by identifying the keywords of products or services and the unit indicator co-occurrence. In addition to such simple approach, we clarify the specific rules to applying our method to practical press releases.
