Event Description

Early stage market assessments for new product development typically include market trends, competitive positioning and technology portfolios and often involve querying and analyzing large numbers of databases to capture all potentially relevant information. Due to the amount of data and the number of sources, making the connections between market trends and potential competition to find market openings can often get bogged down in sea of excess data and information.  In this presentation, we will demonstrate how using Artificial Intelligence with these information sources can both streamline and focus the analysis thereby yielding crucial market insights that can accelerate product development. Examples demonstrating both strategic and tactical projects will be shared.
