Patent data is a critical source of information to stimulate innovation and for competitive intelligence. Patents are often the first and only source of disclosure of a new invention and hence, ignoring them will only delay innovation and give an incomplete competitive intelligence picture.
Delivered from the perspective of a patent analyst, we will use case studies to describe the use of patent data to compile a competitive landscape, to stimulate innovation by learning from others and to help identify valuable IP in a portfolio. We will discuss the challenges in using patents for competitive intelligence and the recent innovative features and functionality in PatBase which can help, including:
Using thesauri, semantic and non-patent literature searching to compile a comprehensive competitive landscape.
The use of Analytics for customised, multidimensional analysis and to visually compare multiple datasets.
Text-mining to automatically identify and highlight concepts within any full text patent.
Citation analysis to identify key competitors, collaborators or potential infringers.
This presentation will demonstrate how any user can benefit from the innovative features and functionality in PatBase to interrogate and visualize the competitive landscape for any technical area.
