Why is technology management important?
Use technology management to identify and monitor emerging technologies that may impact your business. Scout, scan and evaluate technologies collaboratively, track developments, and determine how to respond to opportunities and threats.
Prioritize the most lucrative R&D investments and keep up with progress and changing circumstances. Shape, coordinate, and implement technology strategies to drive growth. Make the most of the “technology push” driving change in your organization.
Augment technology scouting
Kickstart your technology scouting with ITONICS content and stay up to date with the latest developments. Augment and automate global technology scouting, scanning, and monitoring with AI-enabled signal feeds. Get real-time scientific and patent data on emerging technologies important to your industry.
Reduce the human effort required to spot and monitor relevant technological developments. Get filtered data that fit your search intent. Save time by allowing distributed teams to scout on the same system and build a cross-functional innovation ecosystem.
Identify technology companies and startups that have potential—short, mid, and long term—in your industry or geography.
Collaboratively evaluate your technology database
Collectively assess technologies or startups that may bring you closer to game-changing innovation. Get internal or external experts to rate on the ITONICS Radar and gain perspective with Radar visualizations based on the results.
