Research360 Overview

  1. 1.                           What  is  Research360?     Research360  is  the  next  generation  of  web-­‐based  data  analysis  and  GIS  solutions.  Research360  is  the   only  web-­‐based  software  platform  that  allows  a  user  to  dynamically  upload,  aggregate,  compare,   rank,  and  map  data  on  demand.                                   How  can  Research360  benefit  end-­‐user  organizations?     Research360  saves  time  by  increasing  the  efficiency  and  effectiveness  of  data  search  efforts.  This   resource  conveniently  combines  current  datasets  with  cutting  edge  GIS  mapping  and  technological   capabilities  allowing  end-­‐users  to  create  data-­‐oriented  reports  and  maps  to  support  decisions  on   asset  and  resource  allocations  as  well  as  monitor  regional  progress  in  any  number  of  metrics  and   measures.     Rather  than  spending  time  and  money  gathering  information  from  disparate,  redundant,  and  often   incompatible  sources,  Research  360  enables  end-­‐users  to  quickly  extract  data  in  report  and  graph   format,  conduct  detailed  benchmarking  analysis,  and  ultimately  assess  the  innovation  capacity  of  a   region  and  map  regional  assets  through  a  single,  consistent,  interface.         Finally,  the  speed  by  which  the  data  and  analysis  are  conducted  along  with  the  currency  and  up-­‐to-­‐ date  information  found  in  each  section  provides  end-­‐users  with  a  robust  platform  on  which  to  create   and  customize  solutions  to  meet  public  AND  private  sector  goals.         Research360 - Converting Data into Decisions 866.419.8509
  2. 2.   What  are  some  of  the  immediate  returns  on  investment  from  the   Research360  solution?     • Asset   mapping   and   benchmarking   capabilities   for   gap   and   SWOT   analysis,   as   well   as   a   functional   inventory  of  hard  and  soft  drivers  of  innovation  and  economic  capacity  building     • Trends  and  real-­‐time  impact  analysis  of  critical  inputs  to  the  economy,  the  workforce,  and  the   sustainability  of  competitiveness  among  regional,  state  and  federal  investments     • Determination   of   federal   and   state   resource   allocation   plans   and   increased   collaboration   and   alignment  among  various  stakeholders,  and  organizations  through  fact-­‐driven  analysis     • Identification  of  new  targets  of  opportunity  across  technological,  scientific,  and  industry  sectors   leading  to  consistent  growth  in  jobs  and  entrepreneurial  outcomes     • Streamlining  the  use  of  internal  data  to  assist  researchers  and  decision  makers       • Creating  a  network  of  shared  business  intelligence  through  our  unique  SHARE  technology  allows   regional  and  state  agencies  to  unlock  the  power  of  data     • Regional,   State   or   National   networks   of   users   are   able   to   leverage   a   cost   effective   data   dissemination  tool  through  a  consistent,  easy  to  use  software  solution                                      Patents                                          Economic  Forecast                                                   Research360 - Converting Data into Decisions 866.419.8509
