Marketing research (MR) is a unique method of evaluating an organizations' internal and external environments. A SWOTT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats, and trends) analysis is often considered to be an outlined segment of market research. It is a foundational element to new business ventures and/or restructuring, reshaping, reformulating, and enhancing the current organizational culture. MR is a comprehensive analysis of strategic positioning within the marketplace. According to Trish G. Byrnes (2003) the research process may involve asking pertinent questions as it pertains to the organizations main objective, such as; Where the organization wants to go in terms of globalization, or shareholder wealth maximization? Is the product or service relevant to the marketplace? Is the product needed at this time? What is the cost to finance such a product or service? What are the current trends? Byrnes further suggests that MR may require qualitative and quantitative data in order to determine the best strategic approach, especially during times where a products life cycle is uncertain. "As businesses continue to develop and mature in the new millennium, marketing decision makers will face a variety of new and more complex challenges, problems, and opportunities from changing legal, political, cultural, technological, and competitive landscapes that directly impact their firms' operations."(Hair, Bush, and Ortinau, 2003).

It provides an organization a convenient way to handle business transactions by eliminating the use of mundane processes that may occur. For instance, most e-Commerce based organizations have a FAQ page on their website in order to address the recurring concerns and questions of consumers, this allows an organization to answer the same question continuously without providing new information to answer that one question, therefore a FAQ page is a method of reducing the amount of reiteration of addressing the same issue. In retrospect a database is similar to an internal electronic FAQ page for a business, for example, it is a convenient way to handle an overwhelming demand for an organizational process such as; an HR function of payroll or employment recruiting. A database would contain sensitive information, thus offering a system that enables the organization to store a large amount of information. According to Senior Researcher for Microsoft Corporation, James N. Gray (1997), database systems have taken on many forms of evolution and variations of changes to restructure organization and revolutionize the way organizations conduct business..
