With the explosion of available information online, it is now easy to know what’s happening in any given industrial, technolo
gic al or scientific sector.
For years, we were under the impression that we had the right amount of information about our competitors, partners, and emerging technologies. Monitoring activities became increasingly individual, and then complex tools full of marvelous promise came about.
And yet... TKM has continued to flourish for over 15 years. Why?
Because having access to information is no longer enough.
Nowadays, you need to select the right sources of information, collect raw data, then analyze their contents regardless of vo
lum e in order to extract a strategic overview consisting in achieving the level of knowledge and information you require.
The merest search now yields thousands, if not tens of thousands, of documents (patents, articles, financial reports, website
s, memoirs, posters, etc.).
Knowing how to examine each source, how to select the right keywords in order to limit noise (“irrelevant” documents), collec
tin g data in their original format, then transferring them to a more common format for analysis and synthesis constitutes a whole series of complex and costly tasks.
That’s the profession TKM invented in 2003.
It was the first company to develop expertise in terms of mapping and exploiting all useful sources of technological, scienti
fic , and economic data. In order to make this possible,
TKM developed its own software tools (semantic AI, data visualization, etc.) that allowed for screening and quickly analyzing th is vast and heterogeneous literature.

Since 2004, we’ve lived through hundreds, if not thousands, of stories about innovation alongside our clients.
A wide variety of cases
Scientific or competitive technology watches, prospecting approaches, brainstorming and C
K theory, partner searching, market st udies for an innovative technology, searching for
implementation or diversification markets, getting value from patents and technology transfers, mapping actors, freedom to op era te or prior rights research all are requirements
for which we have provided successful support.
standpoint is that the answer to all these needs can be found in the colossal mass of information published in the world each ye ar: patents, scientific articles,
seminars or conferences, theses, “market oriented” press reviews and, of course, on the web and even in collaborative research projects!
