Naperville, IL, February 08, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- ipPerformance Group, a leader in benchmarking corporate intellectual property law and management operations announces a study on Corporate Patent Intelligence practices. ipPerformance Group is conducting this study to better understand new trends and best practices in patent research, analysis and reporting. It will cover software system usage, methods, key objectives and information users.
“A growing population of business executives rely on patent intelligence to evaluate market opportunities and reduce risk,” says Robert Williamson, president of ipPerformance Group. “In our last study conducted in 2009, almost 50% of companies indicated that they used patent intelligence proactively to make strategic business decisions. We are interested in learning about current usages. This study will provide business leaders with best practices and peer company experience with leading software systems and services.”
Many corporations view patent intelligence as an essential activity in evaluating large capital investments, launching new products, evaluating partnering and acquisition opportunities, identifying white-spaces, and preventing conflicts/infringements. ipPerformance’s recent studies point to the growing IP sophistication of business leadership and middle management, thus fueling the increasing need for them to have patent search, analysis and reporting capabilities.

Other intellectual property asset management research topics include intellectual property management strategy and performance metrics, litigation and enforcement, trade secret management, intellectual property asset management software, training and education, open innovation, open source governance, patent search and analytics, intellectual property department operations, trademark strategies and practices, and licensing management.
