How to overcome the challenges of patent data quality using PatentSight

While patent data is publicly available and can be sourced from patent offices worldwide, the quality of the raw data is often insufficient for decision making.

A common reason analysts struggle to work with patent data is incomplete ownership information. Patents do not necessarily state the entity ultimately controlling them. They might be filed under various names such as subsidiaries or inventors, making it almost impossible to create a holistic company profile. Without knowing which company has the commercial power over an invention, analyses become void.

Enhancing raw, global patent data with value-add data and data enrichments enables businesses to get a better understanding of patent portfolios—their own and those of competitors, partners, potential licensees or M&A targets.
