Constantly keeping an eye on the international competition and evaluating the current technological developments is a key to success for technology companies and research institutions. Our focus here is on technology analysis. On the basis of our Book of Competitors platform, we develop tailor-made, interactive and constantly updated applications. The right recipients in the company are thus provided with the latest findings in an ongoing process so as to be able to make the right decisions. Customer-specific data and innovative analysis methods can easily be incorporated, which we combine with the Fraunhofer know-how on technologies, markets and regions. In this process, data protection has top priority for us.
