Analytics and big data can provide insight into the potential value of a patent portfolio in many ways, even identifying assets ripe for redistribution.

What may be a non-core asset for one could be an important missing piece for another. So, what if you could use big data to identify buyers who might be interested in patent assets you are going to allow to go abandoned anyway? What if you could identify quality assets likely to be abandoned because of maintenance fees and acquire them to supplement your portfolio?

Join Gene Quinn, President & CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc., and Bernard Tomsa, Shareholder and Analytics Co-Chair with Brooks Kushman for a free webinar discussion on the use of analytics to identify valuable assets and business opportunities.

This presentation will focus on relevant data points that you should consider from a portfolio monetization side, including fast identification of both valuable assets and purchasing, licensing, and enforcement targets. We will also explore the concept of portfolio back-filling, and how to quickly identify important purchasable IP assets relating to both your technology and your competitor’s patents, as well as data points that you should consider assisting in placing a value on those assets.
