The database links global patent data to the companies and groups that hold them:

  • Patent filing entities (currently 140 million) are linked to a global database of over 420 million companies. This allows an in-depth view of the entire patent portfolios of a company or an entire corporate group.
  • The historical data allow to trace the owners of all valid patents and to analyze all the transactions and changes of ownership concerning each specific patent and to evaluate any anomalies.
  • M&A information for monitoring patents that have been sold as intangible assets in an M&A deal, or seeing when a patent or patent portfolio is sold independently.
  • A proprietary analysis algorithm provides an economic market evaluation of active patents, both quantitative and qualitative, also tracing their temporal variations.
  • Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) to identify technology standards and innovation across portfolios and corporate groups.

The database consists of three different integrated modules:

  • PATENTS Archive: database of over 140 million patents linked to a corporate database.
  • Intellectual Patents Value (IPV): scoring index to assess the "propensity for innovation", calculated through the proprietary Bureau van Dijk algorithm on the basis of patent activity. The index combines over 25 indicators (including number of citations, geographical coverage of the corporate patent portfolio and legal status) for the evaluation of technical innovation, legal protection of the patent portfolio, geographical coverage, competitiveness with respect to competing companies, expenditure on research and development, the distribution of value among the various patents, the value of the portfolio over time and its relevance for the company's activities.
  • Single patent evaluation: access to the estimate of the economic value of the single patent with historical data from 2014. Indication of the range for maximum and minimum value, evaluation based on technical evaluation, geographical coverage by filing authority, market attractiveness and legal protection.
