Technology Monitoring

New Technology
is the ultimate driver
of innovation.

How do you stay up-to-date with the latest technology developments? Visiting a fair once in a while or reading a professional journal is no longer enough. Companies nowadays detect technologies early in the development phase in development blogs, forums or patent databases and evaluate them based on the consequences for their business. This increases their chances and reduces the risks.

We experience daily how new technologies change our lives. For innovation development these new technologies have a particular relevance as they are often the key to new benefits and usages, more comfort, higher effectivity and much more. They form the basis for growth. To detect new technologies in time and to evaluate them, is thus a complex but crucial task for every company.

Identify New Technology via Technology-Scouting

Periodical and global monitoring in defined technology areas for an early detection of new and/or relevant technologies

To ensure that new technologies are detected quickly, KEY VALUES offers its clients a periodical, global monitoring of defined technology areas. These form the basis for targeted knowledge transfer. To conduct this research, KEY VALUES uses above others their own sematic software, which is linked to websites, development blogs and institution sites (MIT, Fraunhofer Institute etc.). This way, a permanent overview over the technological development in the defined competence areas is ensured.

Monitor new Technology via Technology-Screening

Analysis via patent databases, institutions and development organisations in order to detect and make use of new technologies in time

Analysis of patent databases (in which 85% of the worldwide technological knowledge is documented) often not only in the own competence area but also in adjacent areas and in potentially disruptive technology sectors. Based on the area of investigation and the defined client requirements relevant technologies, functionalities and benefits are screened to detect new, disposable technologies.
