Anaqua Recognized as Best-In-Class by Leading Market Analyst Hyperion Research

Anaqua, Inc., a leading provider of intellectual property management and analytics software and services, has been named a Market Leader in Hyperion Global Partners’ 2016 MarketView™ Report for IP Management Systems, including special recognition for innovation lifecycle management, decision support analytics and uniquely integrated patent drafting.

Hyperion Research’s MarketView™ report provides a comprehensive review of “end-to-end” Intellectual Property Management lifecycle software systems. The report provides a guidebook for Intellectual Property system evaluation, including market trends and dynamics, key components expected from leading solutions, an overview of vendors in the solution area, and guiding principles for selecting and implementing solutions.

In the report, Hyperion introduces and defines the next generation of Intellectual Property Management: Intellectual Property Business Management (IPBM). According to the report, “as companies begin to mature their operational capabilities with the integration of business stakeholders and drivers into their performance models, there is demand for sophisticated technologies that understand and drive the IPBM model, and provide both depth and breadth of features and capabilities.” As an advanced IPM Solution vendor, according to Hyperion, Anaqua offers a depth of IPBM-friendly modules, features, insight and analytics tools – extending its reach well beyond docketing, simple prosecution and task management. The report highlights Anaqua’s robust IP Review and Invention Management modules, both of which feature collaborative tools to help strategically align innovation with internal and market positioning.

“The Anaqua story in 2016 is one of demonstrably higher ambition,” the Hyperion report states. “In addition to its investments in a wide bevy of operational support tools, including analytics, PTO integrations and document management, the company is focused on ‘persona-driven’ development. …We especially like the direction of Anaqua’s ‘Smart Workspaces’ that cater to specific personas. Anaqua continues to lead and innovate with a powerful toolkit to drive IP as a business. Anaqua’s pragmatic, thoughtful approach to work product management and data-driven decision support is precisely what makes IP Business Management (IPBM) approachable IP.”

Anaqua 8.6 was launched in August as the first solution to integrate analytics insight into day-to-day intellectual property operations workflow, which Hyperion recognizes as a market leading solution for decision support analytics. With Anaqua, inventors, business executives, IP leaders, operations managers, attorneys and paralegals can now leverage benefits of analytics-driven insight in their daily work and decisions.

“ANAQUA exemplifies a critical market maturity for 2016 and beyond: that it is no longer sufficient to manage IP from a purely legal perspective, but that organizations today must understand the impact of their portfolio on their business, and vice versa,” said Eyal Iffergan, President of Hyperion Research. “We’re proud to feature Anaqua in our 2016 MarketView Report for IP Management as a cornerstone solution for the most robust business integrated innovation lifecycle programs.”

“The Hyperion MarketView report is one of the industry’s most valuable guides to IPM enabling technology. The 2016 edition captures an important trend toward IP Business Management which will change the way IP leaders evaluate technology solutions.” said Steve Preston, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Anaqua. “We’re very proud to be recognized by Hyperion as a Market Leader. It affirms our vision, developed in collaboration with our customers and brought to fruition by our incredible team.”
