Patent Portfolio of Major Indian IT Companies 2010 - Report

2,380 views

Published on

The purpose of the study was to analyze the importance given by selected major Indian IT
firms to innovation based on their Patent portfolio as a measure. Analysis of the Patenting
activity provides an insight into current trends in intellectual property generation apart
from providing an account of innovation and technological development taking place in the
Information Technology sector. The study summarizes results of the research that was
conducted on HCL Technologies Limited, Infosys Technologies Limited, Mahindra Satyam ,
Tata Consultancy Services Limited and Wipro Limited.
This report covers filing trends of the above mentioned companies along with status of
Patents, International Patent Classification and Priority Date. The study also provides the
filing trends and status with the field of engineering to which they belong, along with details
of all Patents filed by these companies since their inception.
Our research suggests that after a moderate retrenchment in the years 2008-2009, the IT
industry in India is recommitted to pursue innovation. The fact that the said companies
consider innovation to be one of their key assets and are committed to boost their spending
on Research & Development and innovation is evident from the increase in number of Patents
that have been filed by these companies in US Patent Office, European Patent Office and
Intellectual Property Office India. The study details the challenges associated with software
Patenting in India and postulates that despite the restrictions of obtaining a software Patent
per se in India, the IT industry is taking a prominent stand on generating and protecting
Intellectual Property in India and abroad.
Since the year 2000, awareness about Innovation and Intellectual Property Management
has been on the rise in the IT industry. It is evident from the Patent filing statistics of the
Intellectual Property Office India that the number of Patent filings in the field of computer
science has been on the rise since 2004. Across the world, a large number of organizations
are considering innovation as top priority, and consequently raising the investment on
innovation. In this study, the trends indicate that innovation has been geared towards minor
improvements to existing products and services as against innovation targeting newer
products. However, the companies are broadening types of innovation functions they are
targeting. The emphasis on product development and idea generation is increasing.

  8. 8. 10Innomantra ConsultingIntroductionThe Information Technology sector in India experienced an exceptional growth as a resultof increased globalization and has emerged as a key sector of the economy in terms of itscontribution to export earnings, investments, employment opportunities and overall socio-economic development. Notwithstanding competitive pressures from around the world,India continues to be an attractive source for IT sourcing due to low cost of operations, highquality of products and services and availability of highly skilled manpower.1Vertical Market for Indian IT SectorBanking, Financial Services & Insurance (BFSI) and Hi-Tech/Telecom are two key verticalsserved by the IT industry in India. These two account for more than 60 percent of the ITspace in India. Other key verticals include Manufacturing, Retail, HealthCare, Airlines &Transportation, Construction and Utilities in the decreasing order of percentage of the totalIT Market.Exhibit 1: Vertical Market for Indian IT Sector 2007-08 1BFSI – Banking, Financial, Services and Insurance;In 2008-2009, the global recession emerged as a key concern to the sector since the industryhas a significant dependence on external demand. It forced clients to cut their IT budgets,delay payments and vouch for severe price cuts & waivers. This necessitated a transformationfor the IT industry and it began to re-engineer the challenges posed by the macro-economicenvironment. The change in the demand outlook prompted the industry to adopt greaterrobustness and flexibility in its business models which would benefit the industry in thelong run. The changed environment encouraged companies to, concentrate more on thedomestic market and to diversify beyond their core offerings and markets in order to havea larger market penetration and operational flexibility. These measures adopted by theindustry have widened its leadership position in the ever-growing global sourcing market.2Another approach for Indian IT companies to maintain their global competitive advantagehas been to move up the value chain. In order to achieve this, they have started focusing oninnovation and intellectual property generation through their domain knowledge andtransforming themselves into Innovation centers. Several multinational companies arealready generating significant Intellectual Property (IP) through their Research &Development centers established in India. 3As a measure of innovation, Indian publication activity in the field of Information andCommunication Technology (ICT) grew slowly during years 1990 to 2001, gradually pickedup thereafter during 2002-2006 and showed a significant rise during 2007. Fields such ascommunication systems, cyber security systems, network management and digitalcomputing devices witnessed a rise in the number of Indian publications related to them.To supplement the increase in publications, Indian patenting activity has also grown slowlysince year 1990, but a sudden spurt in growth was witnessed during the years 2002-2007.1NASSCOM 2009, Perspective 2020:Transform Business, Transform India, April2NASSCOM 2010, NASSCOM Strategic Review 2010: Executive Summary, Page 13Innovation – Imperative for Indian Software Service Industry: Lokesh V & Kunal Katdare, Innomantra Consulting, INDIA Science &Technology 2008, NISTADS & CSIR, Page 271
  9. 9. 11Patent Portfolio of Major Indian IT Companies - A Measure of InnovationPublications by IT Companies accounted for 10% of overall publications relating to ICT sector.However, IT Companies accounted for 40% of the patents files in India. This clearly indicatesan increased interest in research & development and innovation among IT companies inIndia.3As Indian IT companies strive to move up the value-chain, they seem to have realizedthe importance of Innovation and Intellectual Property as an important aspect of theircredentials.Although software per se cannot be patented in India, companies have sought patents fortheir software in other parts of the world. These companies also continue to seek non-software patents in India. Several patents related to IT processes have been filed. Thisindicates a level of maturity for the Indian IT industry to remain a preferred IT source.As Indian IT companies restructure their operations, they are focused on innovation andintellectual property generation. They are seeking protection for their intellectual propertythrough patents filed in different parts of the world. As such, their Patent Portfolio providesa measure of Innovation.Scope of the study & Research MethodologyThis study provides an insight into the Patent Portfolio of key Information Technology (IT)companies in India, namely HCL Technologies (‘HCL’), Infosys Technologies (‘Infosys’),Mahindra Satyam (formerly Satyam Computer Services Limited), Tata Consultancy Services(‘TCS’) and Wipro Limited (‘Wipro’).The analysis looks at all the Patents applied by the above mentioned companies in USA,European Union, India and Canada. This includes Patents at all stages – application,publication and granted - of their lifecycle. For each company, the following data is presentedin addition to the complete list of patents filed:Geographical Distribution of Patent FilingsInternational Patent Classification (IPC) category wise StatusGranted Patents and Pending ApplicationsTimeline of Patent filings in year wiseApart from a comparative look at these five IT companies and an insight into the areas ofpossible patent generation, this report also highlights certain key aspects of Patenting for ITcompanies in India.Patent databases such as Thomson Reuter’s Delphion and several other Patent informationsites mentioned below were searched for Patents filed by companies indicated. As on 15thAugust 2010, records of all the Patent documents filed by above mentioned companieswere extracted and analyzed. The results of the search have been tabulated in Exhibits. Theentire process was verified using multiple Patent databases to ensure accuracy of the results.The Patent Databases of United States Patent and Trademarks Office (USPTO), EuropeanPatent Office (EPO), Canada intellectual Property Office (CIPO) and Indian Patent Office(IPO) were searched for ‘Live Patents’, and these results were also recorded in the report.It is important to note that Patent applications filed during the last 18 months are notreflected in the report since Patent databases only include patents in the publication phase.In most cases, patent applications get published 18 months after the date of filing as perthe Patent filing norms except in the case of early publications, where they may appear inthe patent databases a little sooner. For this reason, all graphs indicate data until and includingthe year 2008 only, to ensure uniform comparison across companies.Databases and ToolsUnited States Patent and Trademarks Office (USPTO)Canada intellectual Property Office (CIPO)Intellectual Property Office, INDIA (IPO)World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)European Patent Office (EPO)Boliven Patent DatabaseGoogle Patent DatabaseThomson Reuter’s Delphion

Of 6filings, one patent has been granted to HCL and the rest are published and in Patent pendingstatus.Exhibit 4: Granted Patents and Pending Applications-HCLExhibit 5: Timeline of Patent filings - HCL
  19. 19. 21Patent Portfolio of Major Indian IT Companies - A Measure of InnovationCommentsCurrently HCL’s Patent activity seems to be limited only to India.HCL’s limited Patent Portfolio and the limited filing activity in the last two years, indicatesthat apart from its ITeS business, HCL Technologies may not be actively involved in IPgeneration through its In-house research and Innovation.Considering the size of its operations in India, HCL has not grown its Patent Portfolio tothat extent. Potential reasons for this could be lack of sensitization to IP developmentand lower budget allocation to Innovation and IP activities.CapsuleHCL Technologies has 6 Patent filings in India. It has no records of Patent filings in overseas(USA, Canada, Australia, China and European Union).HCL has filed 2 patents in the category of Computer Technology, 2 in Measurements andone each in the areas of IT Methods for Management and Telecommunicationsrespectively.HCL has one 1 granted patent while 5 applications are in Patent Pending status.HCL has filed for a rather limited number of patents in the between 2000 & 2008.
  20. 20. 22Innomantra ConsultingInfosys Technologies LimitedExhibit 6 depicts that Infosys has made patent filings in India and USA. It has filed 133 Patentapplications in India and 111 applications in USA. In our research, we did not find anyinstances where Infosys has sought patent protection in any other parts of the world. A fewinteresting observations regarding Infosys are that 22% of the 111 filings in USA have firstbeen made in India and then followed with overseas filing and that 3 of its 244 total patentfilings have been through the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) route.Exhibit 6: Geographical Distribution of Patent Filings - InfosysExhibit 7 depicts the number of Patents filed by Infosys across various technological domains.This distribution indicates that Infosys is actively generating and protecting its inventions indifferent areas of technology, mainly “Computer Technology”, “IT Methods for Management”and “Telecommunications”.Exhibit 7: IPC category-wise Distribution - Infosys

Of its 133filings in India, Infosys does not have any granted patents and all applications are publishedand in pending status. Of the 111 Patent applications filed in USA, 7 have been granted and104 are pending for grant.Exhibit 8: Granted Patents and Patent Pending - InfosysExhibit 9 provides the yearly details of Patent filings. From year 2002, Infosys has beenconsistently filing Patents. Patent activity of Infosys has witnessed a steady growth sinceyear 2005. In the year 2008, the total number of patents almost doubled compared to 2007.2008 also saw a dramatic increase in the number of patents filed in India as compared toearlier years.Exhibit 9: Timeline of Patent filings - Infosys
  22. 22. 24Innomantra ConsultingCommentsInfosys has actively been filing a large number of patents in India and USA.Infosys has a balanced geographical distribution of patent filings between India and USA.The methods used for filing suggest that Infosys is using various patent filing optionsvery effectively.Its filing in India indicates that even though software per se is not Patentable in India,Infosys is showing a keen interest to protect purely non-software inventions in areas likeembedded systems and other processes.The filings in diverse classifications suggest that Infosys is exploring and encouragingresearch and development in several areas of technology.The Patents granted so far in USA signify that Infosys’ efforts to protect its IP are beingfruitful.The yearly trend suggests that Infosys is building up its Patent portfolio. This also meansInfosys is investing in its in-house IP development activities to enrich and showcase itstechnological capability through increased number of Patent flings.Most of the patent applications have been made in the last 4-5 years. Generally it takesaround three to five years span from the date of filing to get a Patent granted. Thissuggests that a large number of the filed applications are probably close to being granted.This will cause a dramatic increase in the number of patents granted to Infosys.CapsuleInfosys has 133 Patent filings in India and 111 Patent filings in USA. Among these, Infosyshas used the PCT route for 3 patent applications.Infosys has filed patents in a diverse range of categories with “Computer Technology”,“IT Methods for Management” and “Telecommunications” being the major categories.59% of its applications in India and 55% of its applications in USA are in the category of“Computer Technology”; 14% of its applications in India and 19% of its applications inUSA are in the category of “IT Methods for Management”; 14% of its applications inIndia and 14% of its applications in USA are in the category of “Telecommunication”.Infosys has 7 granted patents while 237 applications are in Patent Pending status.Infosys has been rapidly expanding its patent portfolio and seems focused on innovationand IP generation.

MahindraSatyam has 25 Patent filings in USA. 10 of these have been granted and the rest are inPatent pending status.Exhibit 12: Granted Patents and Pending Applications - Mahindra SatyamExhibit 13 describes the yearly filing trend of Mahindra Satyam.Exhibit 13: Timeline of Patent filings - Mahindra Satyam
  25. 25. 27Patent Portfolio of Major Indian IT Companies - A Measure of InnovationCommentsA point worth noting is that Mahindra Satyam has all the 25 Patents filed in USA and hasno record of Patent filings in India.The observation that Mahindra Satyam has no Patent filing records in India could be dueto the fact that many of its filing may have been in application software which could nothave been protected in India with Patents. It is also possible that its IP strategy is focusedon USA filings.70% of its Patent applications have been in the area of “Computer Technology”. Thelimited number of patents filed in the other areas of technology suggests that its in-house IP development may be focused in this area.The yearly filing graph indicates that Patent activity has been initiated at Mahindra Satyamfrom year 2000. It has been consistently building its Patent Portfolio and already has 10patents granted in USA.CapsuleMahindra Satyam has no Patent filings records in India. All the filings of Mahindra Satyamhave been in USA.Most of Mahindra Satyam’s patents have been filed in the category of “ComputerTechnology”.Mahindra Satyam has 10 granted patents while 15 applications are in Patent Pendingstatus.Mahindra Satyam has been building its patent portfolio albeit at a slow rate.

  28. 28. 30Innomantra ConsultingCommentThe patent filing is predominantly in India followed by USA and European Union. The restof the filings signify that it has opened up its exploration tactic to sensitize the IP activityin each country.While the number of patents filed in India has grown steadily, the number of patentsfiled in USA has been limited.TCS has been successful in its efforts of IP generation with its number of Patent grants inIndia and USA even though Patent office has been loaded with huge backlogs patentapplications of Pending for examination.It has been consistently filing Patents in India as well as USA and also in the other parts ofthe world.CapsuleTCS has a wide geographical distribution of Patent filings - 69 in India, 18 in USA, 2 inAustralia, 2 in Canada, 2 in China, 7 in European Union, 3 in Japan, 2 in Korea and 1 inSouth Africa. 7 of these applications have been made using the PCT route.While TCS has filed patents in a wide variety of areas, most of its applications have beenin the “Computer Technology” category.20 of 69 patent applications in India have been granted while 12 of 18 applications in theUSA have been granted.TCS has been filing patents in India and abroad since 2000. It has ramped up its patentapplications over the years.

  31. 31. 33Patent Portfolio of Major Indian IT Companies - A Measure of InnovationCommentWipro Limited has patent filings in India and USA only. Our study did not find any filingsin other parts of the world.Of its 21 filings, 2 were filed through PCT route indicating an awareness of patent filingoptions.Wipro’s patent applications are not strongly focused on any single category.CapsuleWipro has 5 patent filings in India and 16 in USA. Our study did not find any filings inother parts of the world. Of its 21 filings, 2 were filed through PCT route.While Wipro has filed patents in a wide variety of areas, most of its applications havebeen in the “Telecommunications” & “Computer Technology” categories.None of its 5 patent applications in India have been granted while 9 of 16 applications inthe USA have been granted.Wipro has been gradually ramping up its patent filings for the past few years. As far backas 1987, Wipro had filed a patent for “Ledger Entry Terminal for the Purposes ofAccounting”.
  32. 32. 34Innomantra ConsultingComparative AnalysisThe fact that most of the Patent Applications are in Patent pending status, due to the timeperiod of two to five years in a normal filing to grant cycle. However, the number of grantedpatents will soon follow the trend of patent applications.Geographical Distribution of Patent pending & Granted patents
  33. 33. 35Patent Portfolio of Major Indian IT Companies - A Measure of InnovationDistribution according to IPC classificationExhibit 22 gives the number of Patents filed by the 5 companies in the area of ComputerTechnology. Infosys has the most Patent applications with 81 in India and 59 in USA underthis classification. Among the 5 companies, HCL and Wipro have the least number of patentsfiled in this category.Exhibit 22: Patent Filed in Classification ‘Computer Technology’Exhibit 23 gives the number of Patents filed under classification IT methods for Management.It is evident from the findings that Infosys has the most number of Patents 25 among itspeers under this classification as well. This highlights that Infosys has not limited its patentfilings in a specific area. The other 4 companies have very limited patents files in this category.Exhibit 23: Patent Filed in Classification ‘IT Methods for Management’
  34. 34. 36Innomantra ConsultingExhibit 24 provides the number of Patent filed in the area of Audio Visual Technology. HCL,Infosys, Mahindra Saytam and Wipro have no filings under this category in India. It is evidentfrom the findings that amongst these five companies, TCS is the only company with 3 patentfiling under the classification Audio Visual Technology in India. The above number of filingsindicates that in-house IP development in this area of technology by these companies is notsignificant. HCL Technologies has no Patent filings under this classification.Exhibit 24: Patent Filed in Classification ‘Audio Visual Technology’Exhibit 25 presents the number of Patent filed in the area of Telecommunication. Infosyshas the maximum number of Patent applications 15 in India and 14 in USA among othersconsidered in this study. Infosys has a balanced filing distribution in India and USA. HCL andTCS have no filings in USA while Wipro and Mahindra Satyam have no filings under thiscategory in India.Exhibit 25: Patent Filed in Classification ‘Telecommunication’
  35. 35. 37Patent Portfolio of Major Indian IT Companies - A Measure of InnovationTimeline Depicting Patent ApplicationsExhibit 26 displays the comparison of yearly filing trend in USA for HCL, Infosys, MahindraSatyam, TCS and Wipro. The graph for Infosys indicates that it has significantly high numberof Patent filings in USA compared to its peer companies. On the contrary, HCL Technologieshas not filed for any patents in USA. Others - Mahindra Satyam, TCS and Wipro - have had avery limited number of patents filed in USA.Exhibit 26: Filing Trends of HCL, Infosys, Mahindra Satyam, TCS and Wipro in USAExhibit 27 gives the filing trend of the five companies in India. Although Infosys filed its firstpatent in India only in the year 2003, it has ramped up its patent filings significantly eachyear there on. Till date, Infosys has filed for 133 patents in India. In 2008 itself, Infosys hasrecorded 64 patent filings. On the other hand, Mahindra Satyam has not filed for any patentsin India.Exhibit 27: Filing Trends of HCL, Infosys, Mahindra Satyam, TCS and Wipro in India
  36. 36. 38Innomantra ConsultingGeneral CommentsThe above trends spell out that Infosys is active in its Intellectual Property creation andprotection in India and USA. This is the indicator that it is promoting in-house researchactivity.In the past couple of years, Infosys has clearly been focusing on innovation and on creatingIP wealth with a remarkable increase in the number Patent filings.Infosys is seeking protection using various patent filing options including PCT route.Among the companies in this report, the other four companies - TCS, HCL, MahindraSatyam and Wipro – are falling behind Infosys quite rapidly and need to urgently appreciatean emphasis on Innovation and IP development.None of the companies considered had ‘Triadic patents’. The ‘Triadic patents’ are a seriesof corresponding patents filed at the European Patent Office (EPO), the United StatesPatent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the Japan Patent Office (JPO), for the sameinvention, by the same applicant or inventor. Triadic patents form a special type of patentfamily.While the above companies do serve their clients in Mechanical Engineering services orintegrated engineering services, there were no patent filings in this area.
  37. 37. 39Patent Portfolio of Major Indian IT Companies - A Measure of InnovationConclusionThe study concludes that major Indian IT companies have started focusing on Innovationand Intellectual Property creation. However the number of patents filed is rather limitedand needs to accelerate.This study has brought out the insights of Patent portfolio of top five Indian IT companieswhich would pave the way for understanding their respective technological advancementsand their Intellectual Property enforcement capabilities related to Patents.Infosys is accelerating its IP creation activities significantly faster compared to its peercompanies and investing on patent filing specifically in India and USA. Apart from . TCS hasinvested in seeking patent protection in many other countries apart from India and USA.The other three companies - HCL, Mahindra Satyam and Wipro possess a lean PatentPortfolio.One of the reasons for limited filings in India could be that software per se Patents are notpermissible in India. But as global IT space gets more competitive, the emphasis needs tobe on creation and protection of Intellectual property and such an emphasis on IntellectualProperty calls for harmonization of Indian IP system with that of developed countries suchas USA, Great Britain and also for accommodating improved protection for softwareintegrated inventions in India.For Indian IT companies to have a sustained growth in terms of intellectual wealth creationand patent portfolio, they need focused in-house IP development and commercialization ofthese innovations. This needs to be supported by an increased thrust on Patents for thesecompanies to stay ahead in the technology licensing market.This study has highlighted that the major Indian IT companies are gradually upgrading itselffrom ‘coding factory’ to ‘idea factory’.
