Taxonomy Study



Taxonomy Study

A taxonomy study helps SPA’s clients to develop a high-level understanding (please also see Technology Landscape section) of the various ‘buckets’ of technology that exist in a particular technical domain and then identify technology trends, emerging companies, technology clusters, etc. SPA analysts can quickly categorize large patent and publication data sets – typically running over 1000 of documents – and generate a taxonomy that will help develop the needed understanding. Taxonomy studies can be conducted with both patent and publication data. Due to huge volume of data, to keep the analyses cost-effective, SPA analysts typically leverage text-mining tools with analyst oversight to ensure categorization fidelity.

Key Deliverables

  • Detailed level categorization of patent / technology portfolio
  • Multiple level of categorization
  • Correlation of technologies and applications
  • Assess key groups of high value technologies
