ITONICS Technology Radar is used in numerous company situations and can be adapted and fully customized to your company's needs and business requirements.
Dynamic data visualizations
The ITONICS Technology Radar enables a great visualization of your corporate environment and technology landscape. We offer interactive world and region maps, dynamic trend portfolios and technology roadmaps. Many filters and zoom functions allow intuitive handling of large amounts of data. A role-based, semantic full-text search and the integrated sources database allow quick access to all relevant data within the Technology Radar.
Collaborative technology scouting and monitoring
ITONICS Technology Radar allows easy technology or trend data entry on the PC, tablet or smartphone. No matter whether you run a specific technology scouting campaign or would like to capture technology trends continuously - experts worldwide can simply and intuitively collect new technologies, describe and enrich them with our Technology Radar. Identified technologies can be linked to trends, company initiatives and competence fields. Furthermore, the additional integration of experts enables a comprehensive assessment of a technology or a trend. Innovative modules like our Indexing Engine, our Mobile App ITONICS Inspirator or our Big Data Solution ITONICS Scout make the data entry very easy. Do you stumble upon a web page with an exciting product of a competitor? All relevant information is stored in ITONICS Technology Radar and can be assigned to company initiatives or competence fields with one click only.
Collaborative technology evaluation
Technologies can be evaluated collaboratively via a multi-step process (so-called stage-gate process). Experts from all over the world can e. g. periodically evaluate and discuss technologies from various perspectives. Furthermore, ITONICS Technology Radar supports an “open innovation” approach that allows an easy involvement of external experts for specific topics. The integrated messaging features inform expert groups and scouts about news and upcoming review sessions. Once a review session is completed, ITONICS Technology Radar consolidates the assessments and provides the final results. We propose a standard blue print of methods and processes that can be adopted to the individual requirements of your company.
Semantic tag clouds
We have developed a new type of tag cloud for ITONICS Technology Radar: You can browse through keywords and our algorithm finds semantically similar terms in the knowledge base and displays closely related technologies, contents, ideas, themes, etc. In addition to the semantic tag cloud, ITONICS Technology Radar also builds technology maps, technology portfolios and even dynamic technology roadmaps. Our dynamic data visualization approach facilitates fast and intuitive access to large amounts of data!
