Consumerizing innovation via marketplace platform
The platform has the capability to change the way IP innovation is consumed in the future. Let us look at the possibilities of this platform.
Solve immediate problems at hand
The platform has the capability to allow clients to articulate burning issues/problems. The platform will first recommend available solutions to address such problems (if it is a known problem), else, the platform would open the problem to a larger audience to find an appropriate solution in reasonable time.
Solutions that meet the requirement
Compiling a solution in a large organization is a tedious task. It generally goes through the cycle of disaggregation and aggregation, and calls for connecting with various stakeholders to stitch bits and pieces to make a solution. This process takes up a lot of the bandwidth. This platform will do away such tedious tasks. One would have to just login to the platform and search for the requirement, and the platform would show all relevant solutions.
Build a solution on the fly
The platform will allow building a solution on the fly. One can have all the relevant components based on the requirement and then stitch a solution by selecting the relevant IPs.
Correlates existing solutions based on cognitive intelligence
Correlation of solutions would help in many ways. For example, if one is looking for a development solution and because the correlation has been established, the platform will know that every development project may also have testing activity and it would intuitively recommend the testing solution.
Stacks IP assets based on the domain, technology, IT services and business function
The platform will enable browsing through the IP assets based on technology or business function or IT services to look for the relevant solutions. The platform has the capability to create stacks and add new solutions coming its way into the relevant stacks.
Developing solutions is certainly important. However, consuming the solutions rightly is also important. Also, without identifying and articulating the problems, achieving optimum solution consumption is not possible. Managing the problems and solutions on a single platform, gives better visibility into where the organization is heading.
