Intelligence for strategic business decisions

About

IPlytics is an innovative market intelligence company headed up by a team of economists, computer scientists and engineers. Founded in Berlin in 2012, IPlytics offers an online-based market intelligence tool (IPlytics Platform) to analyze technology trends, market developments and a company’s competitive position. Our innovative IP Analytics software provides intelligence for strategic business decision making for companies of any industry.

IPlytics leverages the use of e.g. patent, standards or company data to calculate sophisticated statistical value and trend indicators. All data sources are publicly available and constantly updated to ensure transparency and up-to-date information. The underlying machine learning algorithm enables an intelligent linking, processing and visualization of comprehensive data sources. With IPlytics Platform, users can easily navigate, analyze, and drill down into information enabling in-depth market analyses or a long term monitoring of particular technologies or market segments. With only one click IPlytics Platform provides visual results on the latest technology trends, market positions and company performances. IPlytics cooperates with leading scientific research organizations such as Fraunhofer, TU Berlin, ParisTech or Northwestern Chicago to guarantee trustworthy and reliable data processing and data calculation methods.

IPlytics provides information on competitive market intelligence indicating technology trends long before companies publicly announce new products or acquisition.

Mission

We live in an information rich, digital world in which the interconnection of technology (e.g. Internet of things) is constantly increasing. With data becoming more accessible and searchable, companies find it increasingly difficult to draw conclusions from the abundant information. However the quickly changing environment often demands for immediate business decisions. Thus, companies are challenged everyday by critical technology investment decisions: Make or Buy? License in, license out? Invest or wait? Our mission is to provide quick, smart and trustworthy IP analytics to leverage insights on markets and technology. And all that on one platform with one click. IPlytics uses the power of big data to deliver actionable insights on patent values, technology trends and market developments. We provide the edge of information advantage to boost innovation activities and facilitate market success. At IPlytics we believe that smart IP analytics will accelerate the success of every business, and we are dedicated to that mission.

Vision

Our vision is that IPlytics will be the worldwide entity to provide data and analytics on technologies and markets that can be accessed via one single tool: IPlytics Platform. Providing access to a comprehensive database increases transparency and encourages innovative activities. We want to transform the future of market intelligence and radically change the way companies are interacting with business-critical information and data.
