Innography in the Open Data 500


Innography is honored to be included in the Open Data 500. The Open Data 500 is the first comprehensive study of U.S. companies that use open government data to generate new business and develop new products and services.


The Open Data 500 is the “first comprehensive study of US companies that use open government data to generate new business and develop new products and services”. McKinsey has estimated that open data can generate over $3 trillion a year in value throughout the world.

Innography is honored to be included in the Open Data 500.  Innography leverages hundreds of open data sources from around the world – and some proprietary data sources – to underpin our patent analytics and intellectual property optimization platform.

After all, the core bargain of patents is that a time-limited monopoly is granted by the government to an inventor in exchange for disclosing the invention to the public.  Innography helps inventors and patent owners make the most of this “information asset” component of patent filings.

Of course, much more is needed than just processing the available data – it often has errors that must be fixed and format anomalies that must be corrected.  Innography has over 9 million data correction rules, for example. Innography is also unique in that we correlate hundreds of data sources into a single information resource, and we provide over 50 visualizations that help drive IP and business insights.

The Open Data 500 highlights innovative companies making use of publicly-available data sets, and Innography is pleased to be part of this distinguished group.
