We are a Berlin based team of Data Scientists and consultants who are developing AI-backed algorithms that constantly analyze millions of data points on industries, companies, experts, technologies and trends. This data is stored in our unique Innovation Graph = a representation of the world’s digital innovation footprint.

Our SCOUT taps into our extensive Innovation Graph, offering researchers, manager and decision makers all the power of big corporate intelligence at their fingertips.

SCOUT offers a comprehensive overview of global technology advancements, at your fingertips.

SCOUT is a highly sophisticated web-based SaaS platform that provides researchers, managers and decisions makers with data-driven facts and figures on global innovation dynamics. SCOUT’s intuitive layout and design makes accessing this information easy, streamlining processes and answering ‘WHO’ is doing the ‘WHAT’, ‘WHERE’, ‘WHEN’ and ‘HOW’ with the click of a button.  

SCOUT is built on MAPEGY’s unique Innovation Graph - a representation of the digital footprint of all innovators worldwide. The Innovation Graph is updated daily as our algorithms constantly map the billions of data points from patents, science and primary technology data, web and press publications.

With access to an enormous, comprehensive information data pool, powerful visualizations, structured and connected insights, saving, alerting and bookmarking functionalities, and with an inbuilt collaborative workspace with reporting functionalities, SCOUT is a truly revolutionary tool that will transform your business and processes.

MAPEGY’s unique Innovation Graph is a representation of the digital footprint of all  innovators worldwide. It is an immense and diverse database made up of the millions of organizations (companies, universities, startups, or investors) and experts (inventors, researchers, or managers) who are driving technologies and trends on a global and local scale.

MAPEGY’s algorithms constantly analyze their footprints, updating the billions of data points not only from patents, science and primary technology data, but also web and press publications (see: Where does MAPEGY’s data come from?), and map the data points to feed the Innovation Graph.

Millions of companies and experts develop thousands of new ideas daily that change the world. Annually, worldwide R&D expenditures exceed €1,5 trillion, but billions are wasted due to a lack of sufficient insights at the right place and right time.

Successful R&D requires advanced insights on technology developments, creative and time-devoted strategy, and quick time-to market. With its AI backed algorithms SCOUT provides Big Data analysis with visual analytics in an easy-to-use collaboration platform at your fingertips, relieving you from tedious, time-consuming tasks, allowing you to streamline your processes.

SCOUT analyzes, identifies and monitors relevant topics (WHAT) and players (WHO) within your specified field of innovation, allowing you to get to market faster.

  • WHAT: trends, innovation, technologies and research
