Building the Innovator’s Operating System

“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers,” said IBM's Chairman in 1943. While hindsight is always 20/20, Research Studio shows how decisions could be made if foresight were too.

Here’s a brief overview of the latest developments.

Business strategy in a box

When it comes to anticipating future needs, some experts have been more successful than others.
The difference?
Access to the right information, supported by the right analysis, at the right time.

By reading trillions of web pages from scientific publications, patents, news and trends, and connecting previously unconnected dots, the Research Studio platform delivers contextual, high-stakes problem solving where no data is available.

Based on state-of-the-art semantic analysis and robust question-answering technology, the platform’s UX allows for a fast and intuitive curation. Users can surface high-momentum concepts and relationships between companies, people, products, and topics in hours, not months. Plus, the indirect or hidden connections are easily understood through built-in indicators, evidence-markers, and visualized scoring. 

Over the past year, our team has strengthened these key pathways with increased precision, and increased our data repository to dig deeper across more fields of research.


In the race to identify market trends before they become mainstream, the ‘Co-Occurrence Matrix’ has now become a most powerful tool, adopted widely across diverse research teams, who use it for trend scouting and IP dominance ranking. The matrix allows us to synthesize qualitative findings through quantitative measures.

We've also built a new dashboard that offers a custom template to aggregate, summarize and analyze all research output from a single viewpoint. A number of clients and design partners have already experienced it, and we're always on the lookout for more feedback.


Scaling users and use cases

Platform users are growing exponentially, with clients from various industries. Here is some of their feedback:

“Very efficient and time-saving…SparkBeyond can dramatically increase search area through inclusion of unstructured data  - doing so quickly and at scale.”
– SME at Leading Chemicals Manufacturer

“2 of the top 3 are companies that the leadership group was not even aware of before this [M&A target screening] exercise. This effort has saved him months and resulted in a more expanded scope that would have been difficult to achieve otherwise.”
– Senior Analyst at McKinsey

“The data mining we have been able to accomplish in a matter of hours with SparkBeyond, eclipses what [experts] have been attempting for decades.”
– Lead Pro-Bono Lawyer at Baker McKenzie 


And as we scale out our use cases, we're offering tailored solutions for organic and inorganic growth. Organic growth includes repurposing pivots and whitespace innovation, while inorganic growth spans M&A, and R&D channels in new segments. 

We’ve developed customized features and capabilities to support these use cases, including data repositories and tailored methodologies. Ask our team to learn more.

AI for Good

SparkBeyond, from its outset, has a purpose-driven mission around using technology for humanity’s greater good. 

This year, SparkBeyond was honored to partner with Baker McKenzie and support, amplify and expedite its important efforts to create a reality where every child experiences the freedom they deserve. Read more about our joint project on Child Detention: supporting intuition with substantiated evidence. 

A different pro-bono project used the platform to explore zero-emission technologies that could prevent the next global energy crisis. During a workshop at this year’s COP26 in Glasgow, we explored the pivot towards Ocean Energy, and presented our thought leadership at the recent NOAH conference.

In addition to continuing our social impact-focused work, next year brings strategic partnerships with nonprofits and other newsworthy endeavors. Stay tuned.  

More in store for 2022

Like sequencing the genome, SparkBeyond’s platform has mapped and sequenced the entire corporate strategy landscape, analyzed all potentialities of joint venture, assets. and companies. The technology draws on millions of emerging technologies, patents and news to help Identify market trends before they become mainstream, monitor risks, and anticipate complex market dynamics.

We’ll continue our focus in this area throughout 2022, specifically M&A and strategic investments. We will diversify our data sources with a specific emphasis on firmographics and financial data, while increasing the coverage of our patents and scientific publications.

As we plan to establish more design partnerships, please reach out if you’d like to join us.

2022 is an exciting year for the Research Studio, so follow us here or on Linkedin for more updates.
