Overview of CPA Global’s Intelligence Reporting

All of CPA Global’s Analytics studies are scoped and performed on a custom basis to meet the specific business needs of each customer. However, these reports can generally be grouped into the following four categories, each of which addresses typical client questions:

1. Technology Intelligence Study

This report provides a complete analysis of the commercial and technological activity within a specific sector or technology.

A typical report would include:

  • Analysis of patenting activity, available by time, specific entities, entity type, geography, and technology focus
  • Custom taxonomy building and analysis – technology trends, emerging technologies, IP and R&D strategy of major entities
  • Filtering and specific conclusions around entities or technologies of high interest

2. Competitive Benchmark Study

This report provides a focused analysis on a specific set of companies or other entities. It is also typically filtered for specific technologies or industries because most companies do not align 100% in terms of commercial focus.

A typical report includes various side-by-side analyses of the following areas:

  • Technology: Using custom taxonomies, this study maps your competitors to internal product or technology categories and illustrate the R&D environment from your organization’s point of view
  • Geographic protection levels: Helps identify strategic fields and more speculative fields within your competitors’ otherwise private decision-making
  • Invention velocity: Assists with identification of strategic changes in your market
  • Other custom metrics determined in customer consultation

3. Portfolio Diagnostic

A Portfolio Diagnostic provides a focused analysis of a single patent portfolio — either your own or another entity’s, such as a competitor’s or a potential partner’s.  This report is particularly useful for assessing your portfolio’s overall health and strength, and supporting licensing, monetization, and portfolio management decisions.

A typical report provides:

  • A customized technical taxonomy, for the purposes of portfolio organization
  • Completed categorization of all patents
  • Documentation of review criteria, used to evaluate each patent in the portfolio based on its claims
  • Commercial insights and recommendations, from both a quantitative and qualitative perspective
