Technology Planning and New Product Development with Textmining and Webmining

Fraunhofer INT

Improved performance for your innovation process

The Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis (INT) provides web-based tools and approaches based on Textmining, Webmining and Text Classification in order to support the process of technological research, of new product development, of information security, of B2B-aquisition, and of E-Commerce evaluation.

New technological ideas from recent technological developments (technology push) and new product ideas from current consumer needs (market pull) are extracted automatically from texts and from the Internet to advance the process of innovation in the enterprise. Further, an assessment of the innovation potential of new ideas is done.

The current technological environment is analyzed by text classification methods. Technological trends from the perspective of the company are shown by use of the Compared Cross Impact approach.

Information security processes are improved by use of text mining and classification methods.

The identification of profitable customers and collaboration partners by use of Latent Semantic Indexing and prediction modeling supports the acquisition process of a B2B-company.

Some web-based tools are provided. They are based on scientific publications. A free trial is available for each tool.
