Identify and validate innovation opportunities before they’re realized in the market
We’re spending more money on R&D every year ($2.1 trillion USD in 2018 alone), but the returns are dwindling (65% drop in R&D productivity in the last three years). Successful innovation requires the big picture, but R&D teams have an ever-growing challenge to get there: connecting disparate data sources and turning it into useful insights to inform their innovation decision making.
