Competitive Intelligence and Market Analysis (CIMA) is achieved by monitoring your competition within a specific marketplace. CIMA allows you to develop a profile of each competitor’s plans and current IP activities and to develop your own business strategies. Effective analysis will help you respond to the competition and react to industry changes and other shifts within the business environment. The following methods and data are used in the CIMA: Company Data, Sales Intelligence, SWOT Analyses, Pipeline Insights, Product Data, Drug and Compound Data, Clinical Trial Reports and Regulatory Data.
Whitespace & Landscape Analysis
Successful companies generally recognize the importance of considering intellectual property at an early stage. By including patentability and freedom-to-operate considerations at the earliest stages of a project, your business can develop a more refined decision-making process when selecting potential innovation pathways.
Cardinal Risk Management research analysts prepare comprehensive, useful landscape studies. Each study is delivered via a web-based landscape interface, which allows you to better organize and sort a large number of references.
Whitespace analysis goes beyond standard landscape analysis and provides indications of one or more areas still open to development and intellectual property protection. Building upon a landscape study, our analysts will review the references to determine where there are gaps in publicly disclosed and patented technology areas.
This whitespace analysis assists you in developing innovative methods and products.
It also helps identify areas where patents may be pursued and formulate an appropriate strategy.
