Monday, April 11, 2011

Alan L. Porter and Nils C. Newman, Search Technology, Inc. (CIMS Technology Management Report, pp 17-19, Spring 2011)

"Tech mining is an essential tool for enabling open innovation," wrote Alan L. Porter in the Spring 2011 CIMS Technology Management Report.  He detailed in that article how Tech Mining can help managers in the biotech industry search research publications for answers to "who, what,when,and where?" questions.  Porter and his Search Technology, Inc, colleague Nils C. Newman cull the literature for examples of tech mining successes outside of strictly academic research.  They illustrate the progress being made in applying tech mining more broadly, and also point toward applying these capabilities to the identification of potential technology innovation pathways.
